How to change the initiator group ostype attribute from default to the correct value

Last Updated:

Applies to

  • Data ONTAP 7 and earlier
  • FlexPod
  • SAN


Initiator groups (igroups) have an ostype attribute of default.

For example:

> igroup show -v

myigroup (FCP):

OS Type: default

Member: 10:20:00:00:00:2e:00:00 (logged in on: 0b, 0a)

The ostype attribute can be set to default only by the Manage Data ONTAP API. The API can either specify the ostype as default or cause default to be applied by the system by not setting the ostype during igroup creation.
