Initiators are compute instances that request storage. You can define groups of initiators such that the same target (LUN) is visible to multiple initiators (instances), which allows multiple instances to share access to one or more LUNs as is required for server clustering technologies like Oracle RAC or Oracle Solaris Cluster.
Complete these steps to create an initiator group:
The initiator IQN that you noted in Prepare to Mount the Volume (iqn.1986-03.com.sun:01:opc-192-168-50-6).
A required alias for the IQN (opc-192-168-50-6).
If additional security is required, you can configure CHAP authentication for each initiator. This example does not use CHAP because the Oracle SPARC 300 Service storage network is entirely private, so can only be accessed by instances within your service.
This example uses compute instance group 1.
