Any way to enable ALUA on iGroups by Default?

Hello,

I'd like ALUA to be enabled on all my iGroups by default.    Is there any way to make sure ALUA is enabled on all igroups when I create them?  All my machines will be using ALUA and right now it is an extra command that I have to run to enable ALUA.   I'd like it enabled by default to avoid human error.   The alternative is to create a script that will do this automatically.

Thanks,

-Jordan

One other item worth mentioning.....it seems that ALUA is enabled by default for iGroups of type "linux" but not for "windows".

I'd script it.  Have you tried  the ONTAP Powershell toolkit?  You could easily script this using the toolkit:

Connect-NaController filer1

New-NaIgroup -Name myigroup -Protocol FCP -Type Windows

Set-NaIgroup -Name myigroup -Key alua -value yes
