Clariion CX, CX3, CX4 – Navisphere Storage System Initialization Utility

December 16th, 2008 No comments

For CX-series storage systems, use the utility to discover storage systems, and set network parameters (IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway). An authorized service provider must install and run the Initialization Utility.

For AX-series storage systems, use the utility to discover storage systems, set network parameters (IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway), and create management user accounts.

For AX150 and CX3-series iSCSI storage systems, use the utility to set network parameters for the storage system’s iSCSI data ports.

You must initialize the storage system in order to register the server HBAs with the storage system and have access to the storage system’s data.

Note: The Navisphere Initialization Utility runs on servers attached to CX3-series, CX700, CX500-series, CX300-series, and AX-series storage systems. CX3-series systems must be running FLARE OE 03.22.xxx.5.yyy or later. CX700, CX500-series, CX300-series, and AX100-series systems must be running FLARE OE 02.16.xxx.5.yyy or later. AX150-series systems must be running FLARE 02.20.xxx.5.yyy or later.

Clariion CX, CX3, CX4 – Navisphere Host Agent

December 16th, 2008 No comments

The Host Agent registers the server’s HBA (host bus adapter) with the attached storage system when the Agent service starts. This action sends the initiator records for each HBA to the storage system. Initiator records are used to control access to storage-system data. The Agent can then retrieve information from the storage system automatically at startup or when requested by Manager or CLI. The Host Agent can also:

· Send drive mapping information to the attached CLARiiON storage systems.

· Monitor storage-system events and can notify personnel by email, page, or modem when any designated event occurs.

· Retrieve LUN WWN (world wide name) and capacity information from Symmetrix storage systems.

Note: The Host Agent runs on servers attached to CX-series and AX-series storage systems that have been upgraded to Navisphere Manager, that is, that have the Navisphere Manager enabler installed.

Clariion CX, CX3, CX4 – Admhost Utility

December 16th, 2008 No comments

The Admhost Utility is an executable program that you can run interactively by a script. It runs only on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Windows 2000 operating systems, and works with layered-driver applications (for example, SAN Copy™, SnapView™ and MirrorView™/A devices), and non-layered-driver devices.

Use admhost commands to:

· Scan for new storage devices

· Assign drive letters to the devices

· Make storage devices inaccessible to the server operating system

· Flush cache data to disk

· List drive letters and worldwide names for all server devices

Note: The Admhost Utility runs on servers attached to CX-series and AX-series storage systems that have been upgraded to Navisphere Manager, that is, that have the Navisphere Manager enabler installed.
