Create a logical interconnect group

By default, a single logical interconnect group containing all the interconnects in the enclosure is automatically created when you add an enclosure. If you want to create multiple logical interconnects, create the logical interconnect groups first with the interconnects you want in each logical interconnect. See About multiple logical interconnect groups in an enclosure group and When to create a logical interconnect group.

If you want to use an existing logical interconnect group as a template, copy the logical interconnect groupcopy the logical interconnect group rather than create a new one.
