Clustered Data ONTAP 8.1.2P3
vSphere + ESXi 5.1
When provisioning a new datastore VSC will create a new initiator group called "rcu_generated_alua" and add HBAs for each host to it, even if a suitable initiator group already exists. It would be nice if VSC either allowed you to specify an igroup or choose from a drop-down of suitable igroups if any are found. With the current method it means VSC can not be used to provision datastores if portsets are used.
Would it be possible to add this to a future release, similar to what is available in SnapDrive? I haven't tried the 4.2 beta yet so not sure if this is already an option.
I'm sure that given the chance, the field would up-vote this feature request in a dramatic fashion.
In addition, I'd like to suggest adding the option to name the iGroup.
I have many customers who have naming conventions that they insist upon.
The current flow has them manually editing the iGroup name after provisioning storage with the VSC.
