All configuration and management of the array is done via web interface or cli directly on the array.

Do you use fibre channel or iscsi?

Hope this helps!

Point your browser to one of the array controllers and make sure the host port setting of the array is correct for this configuration.

Hope this helps!

Hi:

 

Currently those P2000 are new install to the rack no one done anything to it yet.

"the host port setting of the array is correct for this configuration" how to do that?

"Point your browser to one of the array controllers"  I don't  have an the P2000 ip address (do i need to configure one?).

Did you ever consider to read the manual?

Connect to the array via telnet/ssh or serial, setup the ports, create a vdisk, create a volume and present the volume to the created hosts.

Look out for

Re: How to configure P2000 G3 MSA on RHEL 6

Hi:

 

my first time install SAN storage for server. Sorry about I am asking very stupid questions. Currently my team mate no one know or has experience how to configure P2000.

 

my servers and P2000 currently installed in other state.

So Do you mean I have to get someone to configure a IP address on array controller via console port have no other option?

If you read the manual you will find the array first try to get a DHCP address, if not available it falls back to a fixed IP. You can also get the USB driver utility and make a serial connection via the USB cable.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: How to configure P2000 G3 MSA on RHEL 6

Finally going use console port to do the configure. and I got more questions here:

 

what commands will do to create follow partitions?

 

• 1GB LUN for the RHEL Cluster quorum device

• minimum 50GB for the MySQL database

• minimum 100GB for the shared data of the FSMSC

• minimum 50GB for the shared data of the Tomcat Servlets

 

and after that how to find this SAN storage on RHEL server?

It still lokks like you did not read the manual so far, right?

 

Everything is explained there. Configuration details depend also on the number of disks you have, you need to decide if you want to have RAID10 or RAID50 as RAID level.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
