create host_group


The create host_group command is used to create a host group.


create host_group name=? [ host_group_id=? | host_id_list=? ] *

create host_group name=? [ host_group_id=? | host_name_list=? ] *





name=? Host group name.

The value contains 1 to 31 digits, letters, underscores (_), hyphens (-), and periods (.).

host_group_id=? Host group ID.

The value ranges from 0 to n minus one. The n indicates the maximum number product supported of host groups.

host_name_list=? Host name.
  • To obtain the value, run "show host general".
  • When multiple hosts need to be added, separate these host names with commas (,), such as: "hostname0,hostname1,hostname8".
