Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Add a host group


The following rules apply to host groups:

  • A host can belong to one host group only.
  • If the host has mapped volumes, you cannot add a host to a host group.
  • You cannot add a host to a host group that uses a different protocol.
  • A volume can belong to multiple host groups.
  • A host group can be associated with one initiator.
  • When you remove a host from a host group, the associated volumes get detached from the host, and the host becomes a stand-alone host.

Obtain the following information:

  • A host group name that you can use as a lookup later.
  • Name of the hosts you want to include in the host group.


  1. Under Compute, select Host Information.
  2. Click Add Host Group.
  3. On the Add Host Group page:
    • Enter a name for the host group.
    • Select the protocol.
    • Select the hosts to add to the group.
  4. Click Create.
