When provisioning a new datastore VSC will create a new initiator group called "rcu_generated_alua" and add HBAs for each host to it, even if a suitable initiator group already exists. It would be nice if VSC either allowed you to specify an igroup or choose from a drop-down of suitable igroups if any are found. With the current method it means VSC can not be used to provision datastores if portsets are used.
Would it be possible to add this to a future release, similar to what is available in SnapDrive? I haven't tried the 4.2 beta yet so not sure if this is already an option.
Did i miss-use the tool at any Chance? I created a new datastore and it generated a new igroup with only the ESX in it on which i ran the Task. When I add all the other ESX, fine, but will it continue to use the rca_generated igroup for the next datastore?
I completely agree. I am unable to use the wizard because I am unable to select the iGroup. I two iGroups per host (requirement for WCF clusters), one VMware and one Windows. The wizard dies due to this.
