StorEdge 6130 - setup the IP
There are three methods for adding the IP to SE 6130.
1. Using DHCP to assign dynamic IP
2. Using Console connection
3. Using CAM
I'll say more about 2 and 3.
Using Console connection
Hopefully you are suing Cyclades console device so you can access array's console from your cube, something like console array-name
Yes you need this package and I will talk about this more somewhere alse.
Connect to the array's console:
# pkginfo -l CSWconserver
NAME: conserver - Client/Server console server software
VENDOR: http://www.conserver.com/ - packaged for CSW by Darin Perusich
INSTDATE: Sep 08 2008 10:42
STATUS: completely installed
FILES: 29 installed pathnames
14 shared pathnames
766 blocks used (approx)
As you can see, with the option "2" you can change the IP.
The 6130 comes with default IP:
Eth port 1 on controller A = 192.168.128.101
Eth port 1 on controller B = 192.168.128.102
So you can make temporary connection between array and host (where CAM is installed).
Use crossover cable or isolated hub.
Yes, you need additional interface on the host to be in 192.168.128.x subnet.
Login to CAM web interface https://cam-host:6789
You need to register array, see page
Go to Storage Systems - array-name - Physical Devices - Controllers and assign IP/gateway/netmask.
Remove array from CAM, connect to new subnet, remove host's temporary IP from 192.168.128.x subnet and register array again.
This should be everything you need to do. Hope it works.
