SnapDrive for UNIX allows you to add a particular igroup for the storage system to the host and perform SnapDrive operations by using the configured igroup.

To add an igroup to the host, you must do the following:

  • Use the snapdrive igroup add command

  • Verify that the igroup is available in the storage system

Steps
  1. Add an igroup by entering the following command on the host:

    snapdrive igroup add igroup_name filer_name [filer_name…​]

    The following example output shows an igroup that has been added successfully for the storage system toaster:

    snapdrive igroup add ig toaster
    Added igroup configuration for appliance: toaster
