HP 2040 SAN Storage

Hi,

I have an HP 2040 Storage with me connected to Cisco nexus 2k. Our network team is facing challenge in pinging the management port on the storage.They confirm that the speed on the mgmt port is set to 100mbps and it should be changed to 1gbps or Auto so that they can communicate with the switch.

I would like to know whethet its possible to modify the speed and duplex type of the management port on the storage usign CLI or GUI. If its possible then please provide the commands or steps to do the same.

 

Thanks,

U.K

Re: HP 2040 SAN Storage

AFAIR the setting is always AUTO, you cannot change:

set network-parameters
[controller a|b]
[dhcp]
[gateway
gateway]
[ip
address]
[ipv 4|6]
[netmask
netmask]
[ping-broadcast enabled|disabled|on|off]

 

to check:

 

# show network-parameters
Network Parameters Controller A
-------------------------------
IP Address: 10.x.x.x
Gateway: 10.x.x.x
Subnet Mask: 255.255.252.0
MAC Address: 00:xx:xx:xx
Addressing Mode: Manual
Link Speed: 1000mbps
Duplex Mode: full
Health: OK
Health Reason:
Health Recommendation:


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: HP 2040 SAN Storage

Thanks for the reply Torsten.

Please note that once the ip is set on the management port , it is not pinging from the switch but it does ping when I connect my laptop directly to the mgmt port.The network engineer tells me that I need to change it ot 100mbps from the current that is shown as 10 mbps when typing the command show network-parameters.

Also please note that I tried using the command set network-parameters link-speed 100mbps and it did prompt me to accept he changes that will done to the mgmt port. I also tried the command set network-parameters duplex-mode full which immediately changed the duplex to full but the speed is still shown as 10mbps even after typing the command to change it to 100mbps.should i do a restart or something or is there any other way?

 

Thanks,

Unni

Re: HP 2040 SAN Storage

These commands are not documented in the CLI guide, but however, you may execute

set network-parameters auto-negotiation on link-speed 100mbps

on the controller you want to change.

Check with "show" command if autoneg is set now.


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
