Create and manage portsets

Contributors

In addition to Selective LUN Map (SLM), you can use portsets to further limit which LIFs can be used by an initiator to access a LUN.

Starting with ONTAP 9.10.1, you can use System Manager to create portsets and bind them to igroups. You can also use System Manager to change the network interfaces associated with portsets and to delete portsets.

Create a portset and bind to an igroup

If you do not bind a port set to an igroup, then all of the initiators in the igroup can access mapped LUNs through all of the LIFs on the node owning the LUN and the owning node’s HA partner.

If you need to create a portset and bind it to an igroup in an ONTAP release earlier than 9.10.1 you must use the ONTAP CLI procedure.

  1. In ONTAP System Manager, click Network > Overview > Portsets, and click Add.

  2. Enter the information for the new portset and click Add.

  3. Click Hosts > SAN Initiator Groups.

  4. To bind the portset to a new igroup, click Add.

    To bind the portset to an existing igroup, select the igroup, click Kabob icon, and then click Edit Initiator Group.

Change network interfaces associated with a portset

  1. In ONTAP System Manager, click Network > Overview > Portsets.

  2. Select the portset you want to edit and click Kabob icon, then select Edit Portset.

Delete a portset

  1. In ONTAP System Manager, click Network > Overview > Portsets.

  2. To delete a single portset, select the portset, click icon kabob and then select Delete Portsets.

    To delete multiple portsets, select the portsets, and click Delete.
