Before you begin

    The Consistency Groups screen opens.
  2. Click Create Group.
    The Create a Consistency Group screen opens. 
  3. Enter a name for the consistency group.
    Select a pool from the list of available pools.
    Click Create Group.

    The consistency group is created and is displayed on screen.
