Backing up Initiator Groups

jmmorrell

Is there a way to backup the initiator groups on a controller? Are they stored in a particular file?

I will be migrating from a FAS3140 to FAS3170. We are not migrating the root volume from the FAS3140 to FAS3170. Is there a way to export/import?

Thanks,

Jim

Jim -

What an interesting question. It's one I haven't been able to find the answer to !

They've got to be stored somewhere, but I can't find a file changing as I create/destroy an igroup on my sim, nor can I grep the igroup from any files.

? ? ?

Best suggestion for a backup would be to write up a script to parse out an 'igroup show' command output.

I hope this response has been helpful to you.
