VMAX2 IG containing a mix of WWN's and child IG's

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

Besides that it would look ugly, is there any reason I shouldn't add one IG as a child to another IG that already has WWN's in it? The parent IG would end up containing a mix of WWN's and child IG's. I would think this would work fine, but I worry it might have some kind of hidden consequences.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Ben,

what you propose is actually an illegal configuration.  a parent IG can only have child IG as members.  so..it would look ugly and it doesn't work :-)

Ben,

my colleague Kevin pointed out that I was wrong :-)  I confused the storage group rules with initiator group rules.  What you propose is legal, however messy as you point out.   I would caution that application of flags and consistent lun could get confusing with the mix of IG and WWN.

sorry for the confusion!
