NetApp newbie here. Coming from EMC world of storage.
I am looking for the way to create a nested initiator groups that consist of igroups of individual server. Dozen or so ESX servers need access to the same set of LUNs. For admins familiar with VMAX: would like to create parent-children relationship where LUN gets assigned to a parent and all children get access to it.

In ONTAP an initiator group can only contain initiators. We do not have the concept of nesting.
You'll want to create a single igroup that contains all hosts for shared LUNs and then host specific igroups for non-shared.
