Allow full Box or multiple Subsystem selections in ESE and SGC Sizer sessions

When ESEsizer or SGCsizer sessions are configured, typically they are configured for a large amount of LSS/LCUs if not even for all volumes configured on the system.

However, the Copy Set selection wizard does not allow to proceed, when only a system or subsystem is selected, instead user must select individual volumes to a range of volumes in selected subsystem, which makes the configuration a quite time consuming task in CSM.

In short term, the following should be changed:

  • Make the Next Button available if only a system is selected. This will add all volumes on that system
  • Make the Next Button available if only a subsystem is selected. This should automatically select all volumes on the subsystem if no specific volume is selected in the volume list (or preselect all volumes in the subsystem)

Long term, the subsystems should be presented as a selectable list in the wizard. Ideally a filtering field should be available for the list to allow filtering and increase usability for systems that have many subsystems configured.
