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

After you create a port set, you must bind the port set to an igroup so the host knows which FC or iSCSI LIFs to access. If you do not bind an igroup to a port set, 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 port set because the initiators in the igroup would have no LIFs to access the LUN.
Note This command is not supported for a Vserver with Infinite Volume.

Parameters
