Group demogrp has been created with one member.
Use the Group Manager GUI or CLI to set the RAID policy
for the member. You can then create a volume which
a host can connect to using an iSCSI initiator.

To access the Group Manager GUI, specify http://group_ip_address in
a Web browser window. To access the CLI, use telnet or SSH to
connect to the group IP address from a remote terminal, or attach a
console terminal directly to a serial port on a group member’s
active control module. See the Group Administration manual for more
information.
