Bulk add initiator group to LUNs on an FC array

Is there a way to add a initiator group to a large set of LUN's on the array? I have a new chassis that is half full. I have added all of the WWPN's to a new initiator goup. Now I want to zone all of the volumes to that group.

Thanks,

Tim

Hi Tim 


To clarify have you already added the hosts initiators to the initiator group ?


You will need to also add each host initiator to a zone config, creating a zone for each initiator and targets that it will communicate with.


Both of the steps above can be automated by use of scripts/API although adding the initiators to the igroup is a pretty simple process.


What type of FC switches are you using ?

You can script this easily from the Nimble CLI. It would be something like this:

for x in vol1 vol2 vol3; do vol --addacl $x --apply_acl_to both --initiatorgrp NewInitiatorGroupName --lun 100; done

Just replace the volume names with the volumes you want to modify and use the correct initiator group and lun values.
