Virtual Connect under Virtual Connect Enterprise Manager (VCEM)

Alexander had a VCEM question:

 

*******************

 

Hello Team!

 

I have Customer, that uses two c7000 enclosures with Virtual Connects under VCEM+ICE control.

Now their Central Management Server (CMS) broke and they can't control VC because VCEM is unreachable.

Can I take control of VC via VCM without Maintenance Mode in VCEM?

 

Thank You,

Yes, you can telnet to the VC modules and do a release if I don’t remember incorrectly

 

I believe the command might be something with external manager, just do a telnet\ssh to the master module and do a help.

And then Eric joined in with more info:

 

*********************

 

“Show external-manager”  will get you the external manager user name.

 

“remove external-manager UserName=yourusername”  will release the external manager. 

 

There is more to the remove command regarding setting the MAC & WWN ranges that is optional.  Seek out the Virtual Connect Manager CLI Guide for your firmware version.

Hope that helps and all your CMS systems stay alive.
