VNX - How to create a Storage Group | What is a Storage Group (SG) ?

Storage Group


It is a collection of Hosts and LUNs to communicate with each other providing the high end security for the data.

For every host we should have to create a Storage Group and provisioned LUNs should be added to the storage group to visible the LUNs at the Host end.

Whenever we brought a new server in our environment, after completing the Zoning and creation of LUNs we have to create a storage group.

Adding LUNs to a existing storage group is masking in other words


It means particular LUN is visible to particular Host. In clear, A LUN can be visible to only one Storage Group/Host.
