iSCSI Initiator Groups

An iSCSI initiator group is a collection of one or more iSCSI initiators, with each initiator having a unique iSCSI Qualified Name (IQN) and IP address. Each IQN represents a single Network Interface Card (NIC) port on an iSCSI-based client in the form of a Windows server, ESXi or Linux host. Configure iSCSI initiator groups on the array; configure client-side iSCSI initiators according to the vendor's recommendations.

NOTE: By default, iSCSI volumes deny access to initiators. To allow initiators in an initiator group to access a volume, you must configure an ACL that includes the desired initiators and attach it to the volume.
