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, itâ€™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 donâ€™t miss any updates!
