ONTAP SAN boot storage setup

Create iSCSI igroups

To create igroups, complete the following step:

You need the iSCSI initiator IQNs from the server configuration for this step.

  1. From the cluster management node SSH connection, run the following commands. To view the three igroups created in this step, run the igroup show command.

    igroup create –vserver Infra-SVM –igroup VM-Host-Infra-A –protocol iscsi –ostype vmware –initiator <<var_vm_host_infra_a_iSCSI-A_vNIC_IQN>>, <<var_vm_host_infra_a_iSCSI-B_vNIC_IQN>>
    igroup create –vserver Infra-SVM –igroup VM-Host-Infra-B –protocol iscsi –ostype vmware –initiator <<var_vm_host_infra_b_iSCSI-A_vNIC_IQN>>, <<var_vm_host_infra_b_iSCSI-B_vNIC_IQN>>
    This step must be completed when adding additional Cisco UCS C- Series servers.

Map boot LUNs to igroups

To map boot LUNs to igroups, run the following commands from the cluster management SSH connection:

lun map –vserver Infra-SVM –volume esxi_boot –lun VM-Host-Infra- A –igroup VM-Host-Infra- A –lun-id 0
lun map –vserver Infra-SVM –volume esxi_boot –lun VM-Host-Infra- B –igroup VM-Host-Infra- B –lun-id 0
This step must be completed when adding additional Cisco UCS C-Series servers.
