Hierarchy Level


(QFabric systems only) Define Node groups within a QFabric system.


The following rules apply to QFabric Node group naming:

  • The network Node group must use the predefined name NW-NG-0. You must use this name when adding Node devices to the network Node group. You cannot specify a different name. Also, you can configure only one network Node group per partition.

  • Node group names must use alphabetic (A through Z and a through z), numeric (0 through 9), or dash (-) characters.

  • The maximum length of a Node group name is 30 characters.

  • Node group names are case sensitive. For example, MY-NG-1 and my-ng-1 refer to different components.

  • You cannot use the reserved names all, fabric, or director-group as a Node group name.

The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
