IGROUP CREATE and LUN MAPPING

Hello to all the pros and experts out there in the community, I am reaching out for assistance here.

 

I am trying to create an igroup and map it to an initiator, I keep getting errors which means, I am doing something wrong.

 

QUESTION:

 

Can I use any of the initiator group names that I see when I run ( igroup show) or, can I just pick any name or use the Hostname of the Windows Server that will access the Volume?.

 

Is the iqn: from the server that will access the Volume I created or, can I use any of the iqn that is associated with the igroup names I see

 

On my command below, I am trying to use EXCHANGE, JONHDOE for igroup names as an example. I also tried to use one of the igroup names when I do igroup show but, it says, it already exist.

 

These are my errors:

 

lun igroup create -vserver vs1 -igroup JohnDoe -protocol iscsi -ostype windows_2008 -initiator iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft: hzda20ufs1.mi.di.boy.mil

 

 

 

 

cluster1::> lun igroup create -vserver vs1 -igroup JohnDoe -protocol iscsi -ostype windows_2008 -initiator iqn.1991-05.com.microsoft: hzda20ufs1.mi.di.boy.mil

 

Error: "windows_2008" is an invalid value for field "-ostype <solaris|windows|hpux|aix|linux|netware|vmware|openvms|xen|hyper_v>"

I LIKE TO CREATE THE IGROUP AND MAP THE LUN BUT, I AM NOT SURE WHICH IQN I NEED TO USE OR, IF I CAN JUST USE, either the iqn from the Server that will access the LUN of an existing ign that I see when i run igroup show.

 

Thnaks in advance to everyone out there for your input and assistance

Re: IGROUP CREATE and LUN MAPPING

Use "windows" and not "windows_2008" for your OS type.  The valid OS types for iGroups are:  <solaris|windows|hpux|aix|linux|netware|vmware|openvms|xen|hyper_v>

 

As far as the iscsi initiator name, it looks like there may be a space after the colon in the name causing the error.
