lun portset create

Creates a new portset

Availability: This command is available to cluster and Vserver administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

This command creates a new portset for FCP and iSCSI. The portset name can include a maximum of 96 characters. You can add LIFs to the new portset. If you do not add a LIF to the portset, you create an empty portset. To add LIFs to an existing portset, use the lun portset add command.

After you create a portset, you must bind the portset to an igroup so the host knows which FC or iSCSI LIFs to access. If you do not bind an igroup to a portset, and you map a LUN to an igroup, then the initiators in the igroup can access the LUN on any LIF on the Vserver.

Note You cannot bind an igroup to an empty portset because the initiators in the igroup would have no LIFs to access the LUN.

Parameters

-vserver <Vserver Name> - Vserver Name

Specifies the Vserver.

-portset <text> - Portset Name
