Create snapshot consistency group

To ensure that you have consistent copies, you can create a set of multiple volumes called a snapshot consistency group. This group allows you to make snapshot images of all the volumes at the same time for consistency. Each volume that belongs to a snapshot consistency group is referred to as a member volume. When you add a volume to a snapshot consistency group, the system automatically creates a new snapshot group that corresponds to this member volume.

About this task

The snapshot consistency group creation sequence lets you select member volumes for the group and allocate capacity to the member volumes.

The process to create a snapshot consistency group is a multi-step procedure.
