Volume access groups

A volume access group is a collection of volumes that users can access using either iSCSI initiators or Fibre Channel initiators.

You can create access groups by mapping iSCSI initiator IQNs or Fibre Channel WWPNs in a collection of volumes. Each IQN that you add to an access group can access each volume in the group without requiring CHAP authentication. Each WWPN that you add to an access group enables Fibre Channel network access to the volumes in the access group.

Note: Volume access groups have the following limits:

Volume access groups can be managed from the NetApp Element Management extension point.
