PowerVC 1.4.3 supports expanding IBM Storwize cluster with a new I/O group and adding the I/O group to the existing storage template. Users do not have to create a new storage template for such functionality.

This article describes how you can achieve it.

1. Go to Configuration > Storage Templates and select an existing storage template. Click Edit.

2. Click Advanced Settings.

3. Select the newly added I/O group from the I/O group dropdown.

4. Click OK, and then save this template.

5. On the storage template details page, ensure I/O group is added to the I/O group property.

Now, you can use this template for any operations related to a volume.

Note: You cannot remove an I/O group added to any existing storage template.

As you can see, it’s quick and easy to add I/O group to existing storage template. If you have any questions, post them below. And be sure to follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook so you don’t miss any updates!
