lun igroup bind

Suggest changes

Bind an existing initiator group to a given portset

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


This command binds an initiator group to a port set so the host knows which LIFs or TPGs to access. When you bind a port set to an igroup, the host knows which iSCSI or FCP LIF to access. If you do not bind an igroup to a port set, and you map a LUN to the igroup, then the initiators in the igroup can access the LUN on any port on the Vserver.

The initiator group cannot be bound to another port set when you use this command. If you attempt to bind a port set to an initiator group that is already bound to an existing port set, the command returns an error. You can only bind an initiator group to one port set at a time.

If the initiator group is bound, use the lun igroup unbind command to unbind the initiator group from the port set. After the initiator group is unbound, you can bind it to another port set.

You can only bind an initiator group to a non-empty port set.
