I am facing an issue around the initiator groups. The details are as below:
We had an IG on one of the Nodes (B), and unknowingly created another IG with the same name on my second node (A) .
The first IG on Node B already had LUNs mapped to it. So I was not able to add WWNs to the created IG on Node A.
By CLI (even with the -f force switch) too we were unable to add the WWNs to the new IG. So we renamed the IG on Node A.
As a work around, we created a third IG with a new name on the Node A, added the required WWNs to it and renamed it to the one present on Node B.
But we are still not able to remove the empty IG on Node A that was renamed as the error message says this is because it is in use on the partner.
Please can some once tell us whether the work around is correct and how can we delete the empty IG on Node A without affecting the live LUNs mapped on the node.
As it looks like the empty IG even after getting renamed is mapped to live LUns via some GUID in background
