Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Map volumes in a volume group to a host

You can map multiple volumes that are members of a volume group to a host or host group.

About this task

Mapping a host to a volume group is enabled for convenience. The mapping is performed for the individual volumes within the group and not to the volume group object itself.

The following restrictions apply:

  • After a volume is mapped to a host, it shares the same storage protocol (SCSI or NVMe) as the host to which it is mapped.
  • Mixed protocols are not supported.


  1. From Storage > Volume Groups, check the box next to the volume group that you want to map to a host.
    NOTE:Mapping can be done only for one volume group at a time.
  2. Select Provision > Map to open the Map Hosts slide-out panel.
  3. Select any hosts that you want the volume group to be mapped to.
  4. Click Apply.
