Adding initiators to a volume access group

You can add initiators to an access group to allow access to volumes in the volume access group without requiring CHAP authentication. When you add an initiator to a volume access group, the initiator has access to all volumes in that volume access group.


  1. Select NetApp Element Management > Management.
    Note: If two or more clusters are added, ensure that the cluster you intend to use for the task is selected in the navigation bar.
  2. Click the Initiators sub-tab.
  3. Select the check boxes for the initiators you want to add to an access group.
  4. Click Actions.
  5. In the resulting menu, click Add to Access Group.
  6. In the Add to Access Group dialog, choose an access group from the drop-down list.
  7. Click OK.
