controller>igroup create help

igroup create: -f or -i must be specified
usage:
igroup create { -f | -i } -t <ostype> [ -a <portset> ]
                <initiator_group> [ <node> ... ]
  - creates a new initiator group

    An initiator group is a typed collection of initiators. The type
    is specified with the -f (FCP) or the -i (iSCSI) options. Nodes
    can optionally be supplied, they will be added to the group.

    FCP nodes are specified as world wide port names (WWPN), written
    as 16 hexadecimal characters with optional (Smiley Happy characters. They
    may also be specified by their aliases, set with "fcp wwpn-alias".
    iSCSI nodes are written in the dotted-domain fashion.

    The ostype can be either solaris, windows, hpux, aix, linux,
    netware, vmware, openvms, xen and hyper_v. The type applies to all
    initiators within the group, and governs the finer details of SCSI
    protocol interaction with these initiators.

    The -a option allows the newly created initiator group to be bound
    to an already existing portset.
