Storage Navigator overview
Hitachi Storage Navigator provides a unified GUI for managing and
optimizing the Hitachi Unified Storage VM storage system. You access the
system in Storage Navigator from any computer with a web browser.
Besides the GUI, Storage Navigator provides a CLI to allow scheduling of
storage system events.
Storage Navigator can be set up in either Windows or UNIX environments.
This chapter provides an overview of Storage Navigator features and
components.

Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
1–1
Manage the storage system
With Storage Navigator, you can perform the following tasks:
•
Provision storage.
•
Set up data replication for restoring lost data.
•
View and manage the configuration of the storage system.
•
Monitor and tune performance.
•
Acquire logs for actions and commands performed on the storage
system.
GUI feature highlights
Storage Navigator allows you to set up and manage more than one storage
system with a use-case in mind. Whether creating LDEVs or pools, adding
host groups or LUN paths, enabling performance monitoring, or creating
pairs for replication—these and all storage system tasks are made simpler
because the GUI seamlessly crosses the underlying HUS VM software
functionality. The use of wizards for major use-case tasks makes it possible
to complete the set of tasks in one procedural flow, with a minimum of steps
and a minimum of clicks.
The following illustration shows an example of the GUI main window.
Figure 1-1 Storage Navigator GUI
Emphasis on performance
Operations you perform are executed in the background. This means you
can start the next operation without waiting for the previous one to
complete.
1–2
Storage Navigator overview
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
Wizards and task management
Wizards are provided for each main task. The wizard guides you through all
the subtasks that you ordinarily perform one at a time. For example, the
Create LDEVs wizard guides you through a series of screens in which you
create the LDEVs and add LUN paths by selecting LDEVs, selecting host
groups, and mapping LUNs.
Storage Navigator also provides a window checking on the tasks you have
committed to the system. The Task window provides detailed information
about each task and shows the priority and status of each task you are
tracking.
Reporting
Storage Navigator provides views of various aspects of your storage
system. In addition to these views, you can generate a report for specific
areas of the system. Reports can be generated for a summary of the system
data, ports, Channel Adapters, and disk adapters. A total of 20 configuration
reports can be generated. Reports are formatted in either CSV or HTML. Use
these reports to determine if the storage system configurations have
changed properly.
The Report Configuration Tool allows you to create a configuration report by
using a command prompt. You can automate the creation or deletion of
configuration reports by writing.bat script files. Use the Windows Task
Scheduler to execute the script files at regular intervals.
Help
Storage Navigator online help provides procedural information for setting up
and managing the storage system. Links to the major storage system tasks,
search functions, and glossary are included.
Storage Navigator CLI
The Storage Navigator CLI allows you to perform commands on the storage
system using the command prompt. To use the CLI, you need to install
certain files on the Storage Navigator computer.
The CLI can be used to perform only specific operations for specific
software. For details on the Storage Navigator CLI, see the System
Operations Using Spreadsheets.
Storage Navigator components

Setting up Storage Navigator
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
2–1
Setup workflow
The following workflow describes the set up tasks for Storage Navigator:
•
The HDS representative attaches the SVP in your storage system to the
LAN. Storage Navigator is already set up on the SVP and is therefore
ready for access by client computers.
•
Ensure the correct LAN cabling and connections are in place. See Cable
connection requirements on page 2-2.
•
Set up network connections. See Enabling IPv6 communication on page
2-2, as needed. Also, you can set up additional communications security
for remote operations with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). See Setting up
SSL encryption on page 2-3
•
Set up the Storage Navigator computers. See Setting up the client
computer on page 2-15.
•
Set up user accounts. See Setting up and managing user accounts on
page 4-1.
•
Configure Storage Navigator environment. See Configuring the Storage
Navigator environment on page 5-1.
•
Install license keys for program products. See License keys on page 6-1.
Requirements for the various elements are included in the following topics.
Cable connection requirements
The length of cables that can connect to the storage system defined by the
communication standard.
Enabling IPv6 communication
If Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) addresses are used in the storage
system LAN, you may need to enable IPv6 communication on the SVP. For
Windows 7 and Solaris 10, you can enable IPv4 (standard) communication,
IPv6 communication, or both. You determine which protocol to use based
on the IP addresses that are used within the LAN. Use the same
communication options for both the Storage Navigator computer and the
SVP.
If you use IPv6 to display the Storage Navigator main window when both
IPv4 and IPv6 are available, IPv6 addresses are displayed in the Storage
Navigator secondary window but actually IPv4 communication is used.
For information on how to configure IP communication from an SVP, contact
the Hitachi Data Systems Support Center. The following topics give brief
instructions on configuring IPv6 communication in Windows 7 and Solaris
10 environments.
Configuring IPv6 communication in Windows 7
To configure a Storage Navigator computer to use IPv6 for communication
with an SVP:
2–2
Setting up Storage Navigator
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
1. Select Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Manage
network connections.
2. Select and right-click the network where the SVP resides, and then click
Properties in the pop-up menu.
Click Continue if the User Account Control dialog box appears.
Otherwise, the Networking dialog box appears.
3. Select the Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) check box.
Optionally, clear the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) check
box.
4. Click OK to close the dialog box.
Configuring IPv6 communication in Solaris 10
To configure a Storage Navigator computer to use IPv6 for communication
with an SVP:
1. Start the console.
2. Execute the following command:
ipconfig network-interface-name inet down
Setting up SSL encryption
To improve security of remote operations from a Storage Navigator SVP to
a storage system, you can set up Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted
communication. By setting SSL encryption, the Storage Navigator User ID
and Password are encrypted.
Note the following SSL terms:
•
Secure Sockets Layer: SSL is a protocol first developed by Netscape
to securely transmit data over the Internet. Two SSL-enabled peers use
their private and public keys to establish a secure communication
session, with each peer encrypting transmitted data with a randomly
generated and agreed-upon symmetric key.
•
Keypair: A keypair is two mathematically-related cryptographic keys
consisting of a private key and its associated public key.
•
Server Certificate: A Server Certificate (also called a Digital
Certificate) forms an association between an identity (in this case the
SVP server) and a specific keypair. A Server Certificate is used to identify
the SVP server to a client so that the server and client can communicate
using SSL. Server Certificates come in two basic types:
•
Self-signed: You generate your owned self-signed certificate and the
subject of the certificate is the same as the issuer of the certificate. If
the Storage Navigator computers and the SVP are on an internal LAN
behind a firewall, you may find that this option provides sufficient
security.
•
Signed and Trusted: For a Signed and Trusted Server Certificate, a
Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is sent to and certified by a trusted
Certificate Authority (CA) such as VeriSign (http://www.verisign.com/)
Setting up Storage Navigator
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
2–3
If you enable SSL, you must make sure that the key pair and associated
server certificate do not expire. If either the key pair or the server certificate
expires, users will be unable to connect to the SVP. Server certificates
require the use of a host name instead of an IP address.
Flow of SSL communication settings
The following shows a flow of required settings for SSL communication.
Note that creation of private and public keys requires a dedicated program.
Download one from the OpenSSL website (http://www.openssl.org/).
Notes on updating the signed certificate to the SVP
Read the following notes about uploading the signed certificate to the SVP:
2–4
•
While the SVP certificate is being updated, tasks that are being executed
or scheduled for execution on Storage Navigator are not executed.
•
Certificates for RMI communication are updated asynchronously (within
approximately two minutes).
•
If an SVP certificate is updated during Command Suite setup operation,
the Command Suite setup operation will result in an error.
•
Update of the SSL certificate gives a great influence to the system and
may lead to SVP failure. Therefore take sufficient care about the content
of the certificate and private key to be set.
Setting up Storage Navigator
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
•
Depending on the environment, the SVP web server restart may require
30 to 60 minutes after update of the certificate is completed. In that
case, an internal server error occurs, and even after completion of the
restart, the update completion dialog box for Update Certificate Files
does not display, but the update of the certificate is complete.
Creating a private key (.key file)
To create a private key (.key file) in a Windows Vista environment:
1. Download OpenSSL from the OpenSSL website (http://
www.openssl.org/) and install it.
In this example, it is installed in the C:/ openssl folder.
2. See the properties of the openssl folder. If the read-only attribute is set,
release it from the folder.
3. Open a command prompt.
4. Move the current directory to the folder to which the key file is output
(such as c:\key), and execute the following command:
c:\key > c:\openssl\bin\openssl genrsa -out server.key 1024
This procedure creates a file called server.key in the c:\key folder. This file
becomes the private key.
Creating a public key (.csr file)
To create a public key (.csr file) in a Windows Vista environment:
1. Execute the following command in the command prompt.
c:\key > c:\openssl req -sha256 -new -key server.key -config
c:\openssl\bin\openssl.cfg -out server.csr
This command uses SHA-256 as a hush algorithm. MD5 or SHA-1 is not
recommended for a hush algorithm due to its low security level.
2. Enter the following information in the prompt:
Country Name (two-letter code)
State or Province Name
Locality Name
Organization Name
Organization Unit Name
Common Name
To create a self-signed certificate, enter the IP address of the web
server (SVP). To obtain a signed and trusted certificate, ensure that
the server name is the same as the host name of the storage device.
Email Address
Challenge password (optional)
Common name (optional)
An example of a command prompt when you create a public key is shown
in the following figure.
Setting up Storage Navigator
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide

Figure 2-1 Creating a public key
Acquiring a signed certificate
Acquiring a self-signed certificate
To acquire a self-signed certificate, open the command prompt and execute
the following command:
c:\key>c:\openssl\bin\openssl x509 -req -sha256 -days 10000 -in
server.csr -signkey server.key -out server.crt
This command uses SHA-256 as a hush algorithm. MD5 or SHA-1 is not
recommended for a hush algorithm due to its low security level.
This creates a server.crt file in the c:\key folder, which is valid for 10,000
days. This is the signed private key, which is also referred to as a self-signed
certificate.
Creating a signed and trusted certificate
If you want to create a signed and trusted certificate, you must create a
certificate signing request (CSR), send that file to a Certificate Authority
(CA), and request that the CA issue a signed and trusted certificate. Each
certificate authority has its own procedures and requirements, and there is
generally a cost for doing so. The signed and trusted certificate is the signed
Public Key.
Uploading the signed SSL certificate
To use SSL communication, you must update and upload the private key
and the signed Server Certificate (Public Key) to the SVP.
2–6

Workflow for creating and managing user accounts
Administrators use Storage Navigator to create accounts for all users. The
following steps show a basic workflow:
•
If an authentication server is used, connect the client computers to it.
An authentication server allows users to log in to Storage Navigator with
the same password as the one used for other applications in a system.
•
Review Using an authentication server and authorization server on page
4-2 for information and instructions.
•
Review User Groups on page 4-6 to understand the user groups and
roles you can assign new or existing users.
•
Create user accounts and assign roles. See Creating user accounts on
page 4-12.
•
Change, disable, or delete user passwords and permissions. See
Changing user passwords on page 4-14.
Using an authentication server and authorization server
An authentication server enables users to log in to Storage Navigator with
the same password as the password that they use for other applications.
The authentication server must be configured for each user.
The following figure shows login workflow without an authentication server:
Figure 4-1 Logging in when an authentication server is not used
The following figure shows login workflow with an authentication server:
Figure 4-2 Logging in when an authentication server is used
If an authorization server works together with an authentication server, the
user groups that are registered in the authorization server can be assigned
to a user for Storage Navigator.
The following figure shows login workflow when an authentication server
and an authorization server are used in combination:
4–2
Setting up and managing user accounts
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
Figure 4-3 Logging in when an authentication server and an
authorization server are used in combination
You can use the authentication server without knowing the host names and
port numbers, if you register the information of the authentication server as
an SRV record in the DNS server. If you register multiple authentication
servers to the SRV record, you can determine the authentication server to
be used, based on the priority that has been set in advance.
Authentication server protocols
Authentication servers support the following protocols:
•
LDAPv3 Simple bind authentication
•
RFC2865 compliant RADIUS with PAP and CHAP authentication
•
Kerberos v5
One of following encryption types must be used for the Kerberos server:
Windows
•
AES128-CTS-HMAC-SHA1-96
•
RC4-HMAC
•
DES3-CBC-SHA1
•
DES-CBC-CRC
•
DES-CBC-MD5
Solaris or Linux
•
DES-CBC-MD5
Authorization server requirements
The authorization server must satisfy the following requirements if it works
together with the authentication server:
Prerequisite OS
•
Windows Server 2003
•
Windows Server 2003 R2
•
Windows Server 2008
•
Windows Server 2008 R2

Prerequisite software
•
Active Directory
Authentication protocol for user for searching
•
LDAP v3 Simple bind
Connecting two authentication servers
Two authentication servers can be connected. When the servers are
connected, the server configurations must be the same, except for the IP
address and the port.
If you search for a server using information registered in the SRV records
in the DNS server, confirm that the following conditions are satisfied:
LDAP server conditions:
•
The environmental setting for the DNS server is completed at the LDAP
server.
•
The host name, the port number, and the domain name of the LDAP
server are registered in the DNS server.
Kerberos server conditions:
•
The host name, the port number, and the domain name of the Kerberos
server are registered in the DNS server.
•
You cannot use the SRV records on a RADIUS server.
Because UDP/IP is used to access the RADIUS server, no encrypted
communications are available, such as negotiations between processes. To
access the RADIUS server in a secure environment, encryption in the packet
level is required, such as IPsec.
If an LDAP server or Kerberos server is used as an authentication server and
works with an authorization server, the authentication server and the
authorization server must use the same host.
If you use RADIUS servers as authentication servers, you can connect two
authentication servers (primary server and secondary server) and one
authorization server.
Connecting authentication and authorization servers
Before you can connect an authentication server and an authorization
server, you must configure your network.
Prerequisites
4–4
•
If you have not already done so, obtain a Security Administrator (View
& Modify).
•
Contact your server administrator for information about the values to be
written in the LDAP, RADIUS, or Kerberos configuration file. If you use
LDAP servers, the files of the LDAP servers must be certified; obtain
certification.
Setting up and managing user accounts
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide

Check.
6. Click Finish.
7. Enter a task name and then click Apply.
When the authentication server and the authorization server cannot be used
even if you execute the settings, a problem might exist in the server
connections or the network. Contact the server administrator or the
network administrator.
After you finish setting up the authentication and authorization servers and
confirm that you can use the servers, save a copy of the configuration files
for connecting the authentication server. For details on saving a copy, see
Backing up and restoring Storage Navigator configuration files on page 5-8.

Downloading dump files using the FD Dump tool.
Notes:
* Remote copy operations from Storage Navigator require all of the following roles:
For TrueCopy or High Availability Manager:
•
Storage Administrator (System Resource Management) role
•
Storage Administrator (Provisioning) role
•
Storage Administrator (Remote Copy) role
For Universal Replicator
•
Storage Administrator (System Resource Management) role
•
Storage Administrator (Remote Copy) role
Note: Normally, the Support Personnel role is assigned to a HDS service
representative, but if the role is assigned to a user account, dump files can
be downloaded using the FD Dump tool.
Caution: If a user has All Resource Groups Assigned set to Yes, the user
can access all the resources in the storage system. For example, if a user
is a security administrator and a storage administrator taking care of some
resources, have all resource groups assigned, and has roles of Security
Administrator (View & Modify) and Storage Administrator (View & Modify),
the user can edit the storage for all the resources. If this is a problem, the
recommended solution is to register the following two user accounts in
Storage Navigator and use these different accounts for different purposes
•
A security administrator user account that has All Resource Groups
Assigned set to Yes.
•
A storage administrator user account that does not have all resource
groups assigned and has only some of the resource groups assigned.
Caution: For the user groups whose roles are other than the Storage
Administrator, All Resource Groups Assigned is automatically set to Yes. If
you delete all the roles except the Storage Administrator, reassign resource
groups to the user group because All Resource Groups Assigned is
automatically set to No. To assign resource groups to the user group, see
Changing resource groups assigned to a user group on page 4-17.
Built-in groups, roles, and resource groups
More than one built-in group is available to each user. You cannot change
roles or resource groups set to the built-in groups. The following table
shows the built-in groups, and their built-in roles and resource groups.

License keys overview
License keys are enabled automatically when you install them. At the same
time, the functionality for the software that you installed is available in
Storage Navigator.
License keys can be disabled when they are not needed. This allows you to
conserve time on license that is good for only a specified time. For example,
if you have a 365-day term key for a software product, the license server
starts the count the day you install the key. However, if you don’t need the
license when you install it, you can disable the key and stop the counter
from running. When you need the license, simply re-enable it.
This topic provides information in the order it is required:
•
License key types on page 6-2. Lists the key types; explains whether
keys are permanent or temporary; shows the term limit, if any; and
provides the estimated license capacity, if required.
•
Using the term key on page 6-3. Explains that you can conserve the
term key when you are not using it.
•
Using the temporary key on page 6-3. Explains that you can conserve
the temporary key when you are not using it.
•
Estimating licensed capacity on page 6-4. Provides information and
instructions for calculating license capacity according to your system
and organization requirements.
•
Installing and removing software on page 6-6. Provides instructions for
installing, disabling, enabling, and removing keys.
•
Insufficient license capacity on page 6-9 and License key expiration on
page 6-10 provide information for dealing with these situations.
License key types
To use a particular program product, you must enter a unique license key
for the program product in Storage Navigator. License keys are provided
when you purchase HUS VM software. The license key types are described
in the following table:

6–2
License keys
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
Using the permanent key
You can purchase the permanent key to use a program product indefinitely.
You must estimate a licensed capacity required for using the program
product and purchase a license key for the amount of the required capacity.
•
If the license capacity is not enough, Not Enough License displays in
the status field of the License Key window, and the program product is
not enabled.
•
If the capacity of the usable volume exceeds the licensed capacity while
the storage system is running, for example, an LDEV was additionally
installed, Grace Period displays in the status field of the License Key
window. You can continue to perform the same operations, but the
deficient amount of license must be purchased within 30 days.
•
If the deficient amount of license is not installed, Not Enough License
displays, and the program product is disabled.
Using the term key
You can purchase the term key to use the program product for a specific
number of days. You must estimate a licensed capacity required for using
the program product and purchase a license key for the amount of the
required capacity.
•
Not Enough License or Grace Period displays in the status field of the
License Key window if there is a deficiency of the license capacity.
•
You can enable or disable the term key for each program product. Unlike
the temporary key and the emergency key, the number of days the term
key is enabled is counted as the number of effective days of the term
key rather than the number of elapsed days from the date of installation.
•
The number of effective days is decremented by one day when the date
changes to the next day.
For example, if the term key is set to be enabled for 150 days at the time
of installation and the term key is disabled for 100 days and a total of
250 days have elapsed since the installation, the number of remaining
effective days of the term key is 215 days. This is determined by
subtracting 150 days from 365 days. By disabling the term key on the
days when the program product is not used, you can prevent the
unnecessary decrease of the period in which the term key can be used.
•
If the term key is expired, Not Installed displays in the status field of
the License key window, and the program product is disabled.
Using the temporary key
You can use the temporary key for trial purposes. The effective term is 120
days from the installation of the temporary key. The remaining days of the
effective term are not increased even if the temporary key is reinstalled
during the effective term. If you uninstall the temporary key though the
effective term remains, Not Installed is displayed in the status field,
License keys
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
6–3
Temporary is displayed in the Key Type field, and remaining days of the
effective term are displayed in the Term (days) field of the License key
window.
If the temporary key expires, you cannot reinstall the temporary key for 180
days. Expired displays in the status field of the License Key window, and
the program product is disabled.
Using the emergency key
You can use the emergency key if the license key cannot be purchased if an
emergency occurs, such as a system failure or a communication error.
You can also use the emergency key if the configuration of the program
product that is installed by the temporary key remains in the changed status
and cannot be restored to the original status. For example, if you do not
plan to purchase the program product after using the temporary key for trial
purposes, you can restore the changed configuration to the original status
by temporarily enabling the program product with the emergency key.
Caution:
•
If the emergency key is installed in the program product in which the
permanent key, or the term key, is installed, the days of the effective
term of the license key is 30 days. However, because the emergency key
can be reinstalled during the effective term are, the days of the effective
term can be restored to 30 days.
•
In other scenarios, the emergency key can be installed only once.
Estimating licensed capacity
The licensed capacity is volume capacity that you are licensed to use with
the program product. You need to estimate the amount of capacity which
you want to use with the program product before you purchase the
permanent key or the term key.
Software and licensed capacity
Two licensed capacity types are available. The one you choose depends on
the software. The following table shows the licensed capacity types:
Table 6-2 Licensed capacity types
Type
Mounted capacity/
Description
Usable capacity
The licensed capacity is estimated using the capacity of all the
LDEVs in the storage system.
Unlimited capacity
You can use the software regardless of the volume capacity.
Note: Licensed capacity starts at a minimum of 20TB and can be
increased in 5TB increments up to a maximum of 80TB, at which time it is
automatically upgraded to unlimited.
The following table lists the software and the licensed capacity.

Calculating licensed capacity for a normal volume
The normal volume capacity is the same as the capacity specified when
creating the volume.
An example is shown in the following table:
Table 6-4 Example of estimating capacity for purchase
Item
Value
Volume emulation type
OPEN-V
Capacity of a volume
60 GB
Number of volumes

Total capacity of all the
volumes
60 GB X 512 = 30,720 GB
Estimated capacity for
purchase
At least 30 TB
30,720 GB / 1,024 = 30 TB
Calculating licensed capacity for an external volume
Use the following equation to calculate the licensed capacity for an external
volume:
External Volume Capacity (KB) = Volume Capacity (number of
blocks) X 512 (bytes) / 1,024
Calculating pool capacity
The license capacity of Dynamic Provisioning is calculated using the total
capacity of the Dynamic Provisioning pool. If you use Dynamic Provisioning
V-VOLs as P-VOLs or S-VOLs of ShadowImage/TrueCopy/Universal
Replicator, the license capacity of ShadowImage/TrueCopy/Universal
Replicator is calculated using the page capacity allocated to the Dynamic
Provisioning V-VOLs (that is, used pool capacity).
For more information on calculating pool capacity, see the Hitachi Unified
Storage VM Block Module Provisioning Guide.

Using reports to verify system changes
This topic explains Storage Navigator reports and provides instructions for
creating, viewing, and deleting them.
You can create reports of your storage system's physical configurations and
logical settings. Doing this provides a copy of the settings when you intend
to make changes. If you make a similar report after the changes, then you
can compare the reports to verify that new settings were made as intended.
Storage Navigator reports can be saved in a CSV or HTML file. Tables in the
HTML version of the configuration report are sortable.
Creating a configuration report
You can use the report configuration tool to create up to 20 configuration
reports and then view or download them.
To create a configuration report:
1. From General Tasks, click Create Configuration Report.
2. Specify a task name and click Apply. This task name is used as the
report name in the Reports window. This process takes approximately
10 minutes to complete.
3. Click Refresh View to update the Reports window. The created report
appears in the list.

Configuration) role can delete a configuration report.
To delete a report:
1. In the tree, click Storage Systems > Reports.
2. Specify the report to delete.
3. Click Delete Reports.
4. Click Apply.
Creating a configuration report using the Report Configuration
Tool
You can create a configuration report by using a command prompt when you
use the Report Configuration Tool. By preparing a script file that contains a
series of commands and scheduling a task in Windows to execute the script
at regular intervals, you can automate the creation and the deletion of the
configuration report.
Viewing and managing the storage system
Hitachi Unified Storage VM Block Module Hitachi Storage Navigator User Guide
7–9
Preparing a script file
Before creating the configuration report, you will need to write a series of
commands in a script file. When you run the Report Configuration Tool, the
commands in the script files execute sequentially and then create or delete
a configuration report. See Report Configuration Tool command reference
(raidinf commands) on page B-1 for a list of commands.
Two examples of scripts are shown next. You can refer to these examples
and create a script file that suits your needs.
•
Script example for creating a configuration report on page 7-10
•
Script example for downloading a configuration report on page 7-11
Script example for creating a configuration report
This script logs the user in, deletes a configuration report, creates a
configuration report, and logs the user out, using the Report Configuration
Tool.
For each command, except the logout command, this example performs
three retries at intervals of 2 minutes, assuming that communication errors
and other errors can occur. In addition, the delete report command is
executed with the -fill option before the add report command, so that
the script does not terminate when 20 configuration reports accumulate in
the SVP.

Executing a regularly scheduled script file
To execute the created script file on a regular basis, register it as a
scheduled task in Windows.
The following procedure uses the Windows schtasks command to register
the script files created in the example shown in Preparing a script file on
page 7-10 as tasks of Windows.
Registration example
•
Create a configuration report at 21:00 every day (CreateReport.bat).
•
Download a configuration report at 22:00 every day
(DownloadReport.bat).
Procedure
1. Store the two script files in the C:\Reports folder.
C:\Reports
CreateReport.bat
DownloadReport.bat
2. Run the Windows schtasks command to register the two script files as
a task of Windows.
Make sure that the <Username for Windows> parameter of this
command is a user who has write permissions to the following two
folders.
C:\Reports folder
The log folder in the installation folder of the Report Configuration
Tool.
schtasks /create /tn CreateReport /tr
"C:\Reports\CreateReport.bat" /sc DAILY /st. 21:00:00 /ru
<Username for Windows> /rp <Password for Windows> schtasks
/create /tn DownloadReport /tr
"C:\Reports\DownloadReport.bat" /sc DAILY /st 22:00:00 /ru
<Username for Windows> /rp <Password for Windows>
3. Run the schtasks /Query command to confirm that the Windows task
is registered.

Example execution and explanation of script files
•
The first time you execute the script files to create a configuration report
and download a configuration file, the file
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz is created in the C:\Reports
folder.
C:\Reports
CreateReport.bat
DownloadReport.bat
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz
•
On the second day:
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz is renamed
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_2.tgz, and
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz is newly created.
•
From the third day on:
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz and
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_2.tgz are renamed
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_2.tgz and
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_3.tgz, and
Report_DailyConfigurationReport_1.tgz are newly created.
Because Report_DailyConfigurationReport_3.tgz is overwritten, the
reports for three days are always accumulated in the C:\Reports folder.

preface of this manual.
General troubleshooting
A system administrator is responsible for the operation and normal
maintenance of the Storage Navigator web client. The following are
guidelines for troubleshooting the Storage Navigator web client:
•
Check the cabling and the LAN. Verify that both the computer and LAN
cabling are firmly attached, and that the LAN is operating properly.
•
Reboot the computer. Close any programs that are not responding. If
necessary, reboot the Storage Navigator computer and restart a Storage
Navigator web client session.
•
Check for any general error conditions. For a complete list of Storage
Navigator error codes, see the Hitachi Storage Navigator Messages
manual.
•
Check the alert icon. Confirm the severity level of the storage system
alert by clicking Alert on the Storage Navigator main window. If you
cannot resolve an error condition, contact Hitachi Data Systems Support
Center.

Probable cause / recommended action
When you click the Storage Navigator menu,
the system does not respond. One minute
later, application error (20020,108000)
occurs.
The pop-up blocker function of your web browser
might restrict Storage Navigator. If the problem
still continues after you perform the operation
multiple times, perform one or both of the
following actions:
•
Disable the pop-up blocker function of your
web browser.
•
Disable the pop-up blocker function of any
browser plug-in/add-on.
If neither of the above can be performed in
Internet Explorer, you can open the window by
clicking the Storage Navigator menu while holding
down the Ctrl key.
Another possible cause is that a Java application
was not allowed to start. If a message appears and
asks if you want to run an application, click Run.
If none of the above actions solve the problem,
reinstall the JRE.

When you click the Storage Navigator menu,
a message appears asking you to download
the file SJsvlSNStartServlet.do or
SJsvlAppStartServlet.do. One minute later,
the application error (20020,108000) occurs.
The possible causes are that the JRE is not

JRE installation failed, or the JRE add-on is
disabled on the web browser. Cancel the message,
and install the JRE. If the JRE is already installed,
reinstall it.

•
The application errors (20020, 108000
and 10,6027) occur when you click the
Storage Navigator menu.
If the problem continues after you perform the
operation multiple times, the probable causes are
as follows:
•
The application error (10,6027) occurs
and Storage Navigator terminates when
you click the Storage Navigator menu.
•
Java on the Storage Navigator web client
might have failed to start due to timeout.
Close all other applications and perform the
Storage Navigator operation again.
•
The version of Storage Navigator installed on
the client computer might not match the SVP
version. Close all the windows of your web
browser and then clear the Java and web
browser cache.
•
The Storage Navigator computer might have
entered standby or hibernate mode. Restart
Storage Navigator computer.
•
If a proxy server is used for network
connections, the proxy cache may be storing
the older version of the program. If the
problem continues after you clear the Java and
web browser caches, contact your network
administrator.
•
The network connection between the SVP and
the Storage Navigator computer might be
blocked by a firewall or some kind of device.
Check the firewall settings and contact your
network administrator.
If none of the above actions solve the problem,
save the Storage Navigator dump file and the Java
trace file and log file, and report to the Hitachi Data
Systems Support Center. Then restart the Storage
Navigator.

A logical unit (LU) of user-defined size that is formatted for use by opensystems hosts.
P
pair
Two logical volumes in a replication relationship in which one volume
contains original data to be copied and the other volume contains the
copy of the original data. The copy operations can be synchronous or
asynchronous, and the pair volumes can be located in the same storage
system (in-system replication) or in different storage systems (remote
replication).

primary volume (P-VOL)
The volume in a copy pair that contains the original data to be replicated.
The data on the P-VOL is duplicated synchronously or asynchronously on
the secondary volume (S-VOL).
The following Hitachi products use the term P-VOL: Thin Image, Copyon-Write Snapshot, ShadowImage, TrueCopy, Universal Replicator,
Universal Replicator for Mainframe, and High Availability Manager.
See also secondary volume (S-VOL).
prio
priority mode. Used in Cache Residency Manager.
P-VOL
This term is used only in the earlier version of the Storage Navigator GUI
(still in use) for the primary volume. See primary volume (P-VOL) .
Q
quick format
The quick format feature in Virtual LVI/Virtual LUN in which the
formatting of the internal volumes is done in the background. This allows
system configuration (such as defining a path or creating a TrueCopy
pair) before the formatting is completed. To execute quick formatting,
the volumes must be in blocked status.
quick restore
A reverse resynchronization in which no data is actually copied: the
primary and secondary volumes are swapped.
R
RAID
redundant array of independent disks. A disk array in which part of the
physical storage space is used to store user data and parity information,
and another part is used to store a duplicate set of user data and parity
information. This redundant configuration prevents data loss in case a
disk drive within the RAID configuration fails, and enables regeneration
of user data in the event that one of the array's member disks or the
access path to it fails.
RAID group
A set of RAID disks that have the same capacity and are treated as one
group for data storage and recovery. A RAID group contains both user
data and parity information. This allows user data to be accessed in the
event that one or more of the drives within the RAID group are not
available. The RAID level of a RAID group determines the number of

data drives and parity drives and how the data is “striped” across the
drives. For RAID1, user data is duplicated within the RAID group, so
there is no parity data for RAID1 RAID groups.
A RAID group can also be called an array group or a parity group.
RAID level
The type of RAID implementation. RAID levels include RAID0, RAID1,
RAID2, RAID3, RAID4, RAID5 and RAID6.
RCU
See remote control unit (RCU) .
remote copy
See remote replication.
RMI

secondary volume (S-VOL)
The volume in a copy pair that is the copy of the original data on the
primary volume (P-VOL). The following Hitachi products use the term
“secondary volume”:Thin Image, Copy-on-Write Snapshot,
ShadowImage, TrueCopy, Universal Replicator, Universal Replicator for
Mainframe, and High Availability Manager.
See also primary volume (P-VOL) .
service information message (SIM)
SIMs are generated by a HUS VM storage system when it detects an
error or service requirement. SIMs are reported to hosts and displayed
on Storage Navigator.
Service Processor
The computer in a HUS VM storage system that hosts the Storage
Navigator software and is used to configure and maintain the storage
system.
severity level
Applies to service information messages (SIMs) and Storage Navigator
error codes.

size
Generally refers to the storage capacity of a memory module or cache.
Not usually used for storage of data on disk or flash drives.
SLC
Single-level cell (one cell) flash memory used in solid state drives. More
expensive and faster than MLC (multi-level cell) flash memory.
SM
shared memory
SMTP
simple mail transfer protocol
snapshot
A point-in-time virtual copy of a Copy-on-Write Snapshot primary
volume (P-VOL). The snapshot is maintained when the P-VOL is updated
by storing pre-updated data (snapshot data) in a data pool.
SNMP
simple network management protocol
space
Generally refers to the data storage capacity of a disk drive or flash
drive.
SSD
solid-state drive. Also called flash drive.
SSID
storage subsystem ID. SSIDs are used for reporting information from
the CU to the mainframe operating system. Each group of 64 or 256
volumes requires one SSID, so there are one or four SSIDs per CU
image. The user-specified SSIDs are assigned during storage system
installation and must be unique to all connected host operating
environments.

view mode
The mode of operation of Storage Navigator that allows viewing only of
the storage system configuration. The two Storage Navigator modes are
view mode and modify mode.
virtual device (VDEV)
A group of logical devices (LDEVs) in a RAID group. A VDEV typically
consists of some fixed volumes (FVs) and some free space. The number
of fixed volumes is determined by the RAID level and device emulation
type.
virtual volume (V-VOL)
The secondary volume in a Copy-on-Write Snapshot pair. When in PAIR
status, the V-VOL is an up-to-date virtual copy of the primary volume
(P-VOL). When in SPLIT status, the V-VOL points to data in the P-VOL
and to replaced data in the pool, maintaining the point-in-time copy of
the P-VOL at the time of the split operation.
When a V-VOL is used with Dynamic Provisioning, it is called a DP-VOL.
