    • Click the Pools icon in the left toolbar, right-click the pool name in which to create the consistency group, and select Create Consistency Group from the pop-up menu.

    • Click the Datasets icon in the left toolbar, select the Consistency Groups tab, and click the Create Group button.
  2. The Create a Consistency Group window opens. 
  3. Enter a name for the consistency group.
  4. Select a pool from the list of available pools.
  5. Click Create.
    The consistency group is created and is displayed on screen.
