Dell PowerStore Configuring Volumes

Map volumes to a host or host group

You can map and unmap volumes to a single host or multiple hosts.

About this task

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 > Volumes, check the box next to the volume or volumes that you want to map to a host.
  2. Select Provision > Map to open the Map Hosts slide-out panel.
  3. Select either SCSI (Supports iSCSI or FC transport layer) or NVMe (Supports NVMe FC transport layer) as the protocol that you want to use to map the volume or volumes.
  4. Select any hosts or host groups that you want the volume to be mapped to.
  5. Click Apply.
