Goal

This document describes basic instructions for creating a LUN which is part of Multiple Initiator Groups.

This is a new feature supported in Appliance Firmware Release 2013.x onwards.

Prior to Appliance Firmware 2013.x, when an Initiator Group associated with a LUN then only that particular group may access the LUN.

That means only one initiator group at a time can access the particular LUN and at time.

Now with new release of firmware 2013.x, this limitation no longer exists and now we can assign a LUN to Multiple Initiator Groups.
