Memory, host, and disk space requirements
Memory requirements are only applicable when there are no other applications running on the
Network Advisor server. Paging space should be equal to or exceed the physical memory size.
NOTE
To manage more than 9000 SAN ports or 200 IP devices, you must have a 16 core processor.
NOTE
To efficiently manage more than 9000 SAN ports or 200 IP devices, it is recommended to allocate
a minimum of 2 GB client memory and 6 GB server memory.
NOTE
If you use sFlow, it is recommended that you add an additional 100 GB of disk space.
NOTE
It is recommended that you add an additional 40 GB of disk space for the default temporary
directory.
NOTE
If you enable periodic supportSave or configure the Network Advisor server as the Upload Failure
Data Capture location for monitored switches, you must add additional disk space. Each switch
supportSave file is approximately 5 MB and each Upload Failure Data Capture file is approximately
500 KB. To determine the disk space requirements, multiply the frequency of scheduled
supportSave files by 5 MB and the expected Upload Failure Data Capture files by 500 KB before the
planned periodic purge activity.

Pre-installation requirements
1
Pre-installation requirements
Before you install Network Advisor, make sure you meet the following requirements.
• Make sure all system requirements have been met prior to installation. For specific system
requirements, refer to “System requirements” on page 1.
If you are running Professional Plus or Enterprise edition on a 32-bit machine, you must
migrate to a 64-bit machine within your current release, then you can migrate to Network
Advisor 12.3.
If you are running SAN with SMI Agent + IP on a 32-bit machine, you must migrate to a 64-bit
machine within your current release, then you can migrate to Network Advisor 12.3.
• To avoid errors, close all instances of the application before beginning the installation or
uninstallation procedures.
For UNIX system, if you still receive error messages after closing the application, enter the
following commands:
#ps -ef | grep -i “” to list the process IDs
#kill -9 “Process_ID” where Process_ID is any Management application process
Additional pre-installation requirements for UNIX systems
• Make sure that an X Server is available for display and is configured to permit X Client
applications to display from the host on which they are installing the Network Advisor server
(typically, this simply requires that the systems console be present and running with a
logged-in user on the X Server-based desktop session, such as KDE, GNOME, and so on).
If this is a headless unit with no console, refer to “Additional pre-installation requirements for
UNIX systems (headless installation)” on page 12.
• Make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is correctly defined in the shell with a valid
value (for example, to display to the local console, export DISPLAY=:0.0, or to display to a
remote system that has an X Server running, export DISPLAY=Remote_IP_address:0.0).
You may also need to consider a firewall that might block the display to the X Server, which
listens by default on TCP port 6000 on the remote host.
To display to a remote system, you need to permit the remote display of the X Server by running
the xhost +IP command, where IP is the IP address of the Network Advisor server host
from the X-based desktop of the remote system.
• Make sure you test the DISPLAY definition by running the xterm command, from the same
shell from which you run install.bin. A new X terminal window to the destination X Server
display should open.
• For Linux OS with the SELinux security policy enabled, make sure you complete the following
steps.
1. Disable the SELinux security policy using the setenforce 0 command.
2. Install the application (refer to “Installing the application” on page 10).
3. Enable the SELinux security policy using the setenforce 1 command.

Headless installation
3. Save and close the file.
To configure the application, refer to one of the following sections:
• If this is a fresh installation, refer to “Network Advisor Configuration” on page 17.
• If you are upgrading from a previous version and need to migrate data, refer to “Data
Migration” on page 43.
Headless installation
Headless installation, also known as silent mode installation, is fully supported on all platforms.
Once initiated, the headless installation requires minimal user interaction and runs based on the
default values provided. Headless installation performs the actual installation; however, you must
use the Configuration wizard in graphical user interface mode to copy data and settings, configure
the FTP or SCP server, configure IP, and configure server ports.
Before you install Network Advisor, make sure you meet the following requirements.
Make sure all system requirements have been met prior to installation. For specific system
requirements, refer to “System requirements” on page 1.
Additional pre-installation requirements for UNIX systems
(headless installation)
An X Server display is required, even when performing a headless installation, to run the initial
configuration. Before you install Network Advisor, complete the following:
• Make sure that an X Server is available for display and is configured to permit X Client
applications to display from the host on which they are installing the Network Advisor server
(typically, this simply requires that the system console be present and running with a logged-in
user on the X Server-based desktop session, such as KDE, GNOME, and so on).
The DISPLAY can be any host X Server (for example, DISPLAY can be set to display the
configuration to another UNIX system that has an X-based desktop).
• Make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is correctly defined in the shell with a valid
value (for example, to display to the local console, export DISPLAY=:0.0, or to display to a
remote system that has an X Server running, export DISPLAY=Remote_IP_Address:0.0).
To display to a remote system, you need to permit the remote display of the X Server by running
the xhost +IP command, where IP is the IP address of the Network Advisor server host, on
a local terminal window of the X-based desktop of the remote system.
You may also need to consider a firewall that might block the display to the X Server, which
listens by default on TCP port 6000 on the remote host.
• Make sure you test the DISPLAY definition by running the xterm command from the same
shell from which you run install.bin. A new X terminal window to the destination X Server
display should open.

Smart Card driver installation
Smart Card driver installation
Windows operating systems do not require smart card drivers to be installed separately; the driver
is bundled with the operating system. However, you must install a smart card driver for the Linux
operating systems. You must install both the special USB Chip/Smart Card Interface Device (USB
CCID) and the PC/SC IFD driver. You can download the source code and compile it from one of the
following websites:
• USB CCID (ccid-1.3.7.tar.bz2)
Open Source URL: http://pcsclite.alioth.debian.org/ccid.html.
• Muscle PC/SC IFD Driver (pcsc-lite-1.4.101.tar.gz)
Open Source URL: https://alioth.debian.org/frs/?group id=30105.
The Encryption Manager Client within Network Advisor provides the binary code on both platforms
for installation. You must uncompress or untar the file depending on the platform. The procedures
for the local client and the remote client configurations follow. The
thirdparty/pscs-lite-1.4.101-linux-x86.tar.gz file can be found on the Network Advisor DVD.
Installing the Smart Card driver on the local client
1. Verify that the /opt directory exists.
If the /opt directory does not exist, create an /opt directory. If you want to install the driver in a
different directory, create that directory. Otherwise, skip this step.
> su
> mkdir /opt
2. Copy the appropriate pscs file for your platform (Linux) from the DVD and rename the file as
pcsc-lite-1.4.101-linux-x86.tar.gz file.
3. Log in as the superuser to untar the pcsc-lite-1.4.101-linux-x86.tar.gz file.
>
>
>
>
su
cd /opt
gunzip pcsc-lite-1.4.101-linux-x86.tar.gz
tar -xvf pcsc-lite-1.4.101-linux-x86.tar
After the pcsc_lite_1.4.101.tar file is extracted, the necessary binary, library, and smart card
drivers are stored in the /opt/pcsc directory.
4. If you installed a pcsc directory into a location other than /opt, modify the pcscctl script to
change “/opt” to the directory you specified in step 1.
> cd <new_dir>
> vi pcscctl
Search for “/opt” and change it to the name of the new directory.

5. Create a soft link into the system directory. This is to support the automatic restart of the pcscd
daemon upon system restart.
If you installed the pcsc directory into the /opt directory, just create the soft link. Otherwise,
use the name of the new directory in place of /opt.
S.u.s.e> ln –s /opt/pcsc/pcscctl /etc/init.d/pcscd
S.u.s.e> chkconfig --add pcscd
or
redhat> ln –s /opt/pcsc/pcscctl /etc/init.d/pcscd
redhat> chkconfig --add pcscd
NOTE
Before you enter chkconfig --add pcscd, you can enter chkconfig –list |
grep pcscd to verify that the pcscd file is already on the list. If it already exists, you do
not need to enter chkconfig –add pcscd. After you reboot the system, you should
expect the following links under /etc/rc2.d, /etc/rc3.d, /etc/rc3.d, /etc/rc4.d, and
/etc/rc5.d.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jul 28 01:50
S94pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
NOTE
For some Linux vendors, the Smart Card driver may come with the operating system. In
this case, extra system configuration may be needed. For more information, refer to
“Detecting and correcting a default Linux Smart Card driver” on page 36.
6. Start the pcscd daemon or stop the pcscd daemon.
To start pcscd, type:
> /opt/pcsc/pcscctl start
To stop pcscd, type:
> /opt/pcsc/pcscctl stop

Smart Card driver installation
Installing the Smart Card driver on the remote client
1. Complete steps 1 through 4 in “Installing the Smart Card driver on the local client” on page 34.
2. Run the following commands to support remote clients (Web Start).
> cd /usr/lib
> ln –s /opt/pcsc/lib/libpcsclite.so .
NOTE
If a soft link exists on libpcsclite.so, make sure that the final file is linked to
/opt/pcsc/lib/libpcsclite.so.xxx. It is recommended that you back up the original.
Example
> ls –l libpcsc*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root
libpcsclite.so.1.0.0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root

Detecting and correcting a default Linux Smart Card driver
This section applies to the Linux system only. Some Linux systems may provide a default Smart
Card driver and have their own setup to activate it. In this case, you must use the driver provided
with Network Advisor. Otherwise, there could be an incompatibility issue between the driver and the
native library that could cause a driver detection failure. Complete the following steps to discover
whether a default driver already exists and how to reconfigure the driver environment.
1. Detect a different Smart Card driver by running the following commands:
> cd /
> find . –name pcscd –print
If the results contain “pcscd”, and it is not located under /opt/pcsc or /etc/init.d/pcscd, a
different driver exists on the system.
2. Make sure the pcscd file on the /etc/init.d directory is linked to /opt/pcsc/pcscctl by running
the following commands:
> cd /etc/init.d
> ls –l pcscd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Jul 28 01:29 pcscd -> /opt/pcsc/pcscctl

3. If there is an existing pcscd script in this directory, you can move and rename this file before
you overwrite it.
> mv
/etc/init.d/pcscd
/etc/init.d/pcscd.org
4. Create a soft link using the following command.
> ln –s /opt/pcsc/pcscctl /etc/init.d/pcscd
The existing pcscd.org script in this directory implies that a different driver version exists. You
can compare the existing one with the one under /opt/pcsc/pcscd/sbin. If the size is different
and the existing pcscd script contains the following information, you must clean up the driver
configuration. The example below shows a different pscsd.org script and how to do the
configuration cleanup. The configuration level is 2345, the start priority is 25, and the stop
priority is 88.
> more /etc/init.d/pcscd
#!/bin/sh
#
# pcscd
#
# chkconfig:
Starts the pcscd Daemon
2345
25
88
5. Remove the existing pcscd start priority file by deleting the file as SNNpcscd, where NN is the
start priority. For example, from the preceding step, the file name is S25pcscd.
> find /etc/.
–name “S25pcscd” –exec rm {} \; -print
> sync;sync;sync
> reboot
After the reboot, the new configuration from the /opt/pcsc/pcscctl file should be under the
/etc/rc2.d, /etc/rc3.d, /etc/rc4.d, and /etc/rc5.d directories.
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jul 28 01:50 S94pcscd -> ../init.d/pcscd
6. For the remote client, ensure that the Smart Card native library is linked to the one under
/opt/pcsc/lib.
> cd /
> find . –name libpcsclite.so* -print
If the library libpcsclite.so* exists in multiple locations, you must ensure that there is only one
library under /lib or /usr/lib, and that it is linked to the library on /opt/pcsc/lib correctly. For
example, to find a copy of the library on /lib, use the following commands.
> cd /lib
> ls –al libpcsclite.so
If a copy of the library exists, either remove it or save it as a backup.
To find a copy of the library on /usr/lib, use the following commands.
> cd /usr/lib
> ls –al libpcsclite.so
Use this copy for the soft link.
> ln –s
/opt/pcsc/lib/libpcsclite.so

Data transfer
If you agree to participate in the program, these are the actions that occur on the client and server.
1. You log in to the Network Advisor client.
The main window displays.
2. The application automatically schedules a timer.
The timer is configured with an initial delay of 5 minutes and an interval of 24 hours.
3. Once scheduled, the client triggers the scheduled data transfer.
4. The client checks the reachability of the Brocade web server for the data transfer to make sure
that the client workstation has HTTP connectivity.
If the Brocade web server is reachable, the client schedules the timer.
5. The client triggers the schedule to run in 5 minutes and then every 24 hours thereafter.
6. When the scheduled timer runs, the client requests the server to transfer the usage data.
7.
The server determines the availability of the data based on the following details:
• Last transfer timestamp must be greater than 24 hours to avoid frequent data uploads.
• Data must be available for transfer. Data availability is determined by the difference
between the last data transfer and the current data.
8. The client requests a data transfer.
If data is available, the server nominates the client to transfer data. Once nominated, any
further upload requests are denied.
NOTE
If the nominated client’s session is ended or stuck, the session is invalidated and the state is
cleared.
9. The nominated client requests the server to prepare the data.
10. The server compiles the usage data text file into a .zip file using the following naming
convention: UUID_usagedata_file_creataion_timestamp, where UUID is the unique
identification of the server based on the MAC address.

Configuring remote client access to the database
11. When the file is successfully created, the client changes the state of the data transfer to
“Uploading” and transmits the data.
The client transmits the data securely to the Brocade web server using the Apache HTTP
Components third-party library. The client communicates with the Brocade web server using an
authorization token.
12. When the transfer is complete, the client updates the Brocade web server database with the
transfer status (success or failure). The client also triggers an application event with the
following details: success or failure, source client IP address, and source user name.
Configuring remote client access to the database
1. Open the pg_hba.conf file (in the Install_Home\data\databases\ directory).

2. Execute ./smc or sh smc.
3. Click the Services tab.
The tab lists the DCFM services.
4. Click Start, if necessary.
• Make sure that an X Server is available for display and is configured to permit X Client
applications to display from the host on which they are installing the Network Advisor Server
(typically, this simply requires that the systems console be present and running with a logged in
user on the X Server-based desktop session, such as KDE, GNOME, and so on).

Migrating data
• Make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is correctly defined in the shell with a valid
value (for example, to display to the local console, export DISPLAY=:0.0, or to display to a
remote system that has an X Server running, export DISPLAY=Remote_IP_Address:0.0).
You may also need to consider a firewall that might block the display to the X Server which
listens by default on TCP port 6000 on the remote host.
To display to a remote system you need to permit the remote display of the X Server by running
command xhost +IP, where IP is the IP address of the Network Advisor server host from the
X-based desktop of the remote system.
• Make sure you test the DISPLAY definition by running the command xterm from the same shell
from which you run install.bin. A new X terminal window to the destination X Server display
should open.
Additional trial requirements
• Two versions of the Management application (DCFM, INM, or Network Advisor) cannot reside
on the same host unless there are two guest operating systems on the same host.
• Data collected during the Trial cannot be migrated back to the Professional software.
• Once the Enterprise trial period expires, you must upgrade to Licensed software.
Migrating data

1. Go to Install_Home/Uninstall_Network_Advisor12_3_1.
2. Choose one of the following options:
• To partially uninstall Network Advisor (configuration and performance data is retained to
be re-used by the new installation), execute Uninstall_Network_Advisor 12_3_1 –f
<absolute path of partial uninstall property file>.
• To fully uninstall Network Advisor (all data is removed), execute
.\Uninstall_Network_Advisor 12_3_1 –f <absolute path of full uninstall property file>.
When uninstallation is complete, an “Uninstallation complete” message displays. You must
manually delete the Install_Home/silent folder.

Management server and client ports
A
Management server and client ports
The Management application has two parts: the Server and the Client. The Server is installed on
one machine and stores device-related information; it does not have a user interface. To view
information through a user interface, you must log in to the Server through a Client. The Server and
Clients may reside on the same machine, or on separate machines. If you are running Professional,
the server and the client must be on the same machine.
In some cases, a network may utilize virtual private network (VPN) or firewall technology, which can
prohibit communication between Products and the Servers or Clients. In other words, a Server or
Client can find a Product, appear to log in, but is immediately logged out because the Product
cannot reach the Server or Client. To resolve this issue, check to determine if the ports in the table
below need to be opened up in the firewall.
NOTE
Professional edition does not support remote clients.
Table 21 lists the default port numbers and whether or not it needs to be opened up in the firewall
and includes the following information:
•
•
•
•
•
Port Number — The port at the destination end of the communication path.
Ports — The name of the port.
Transport — The transport type (TCP or UDP).
Description — A brief description of the port.
Communication Path — The “source” to “destination” values. Client and Server refer to the
Management application client and server unless stated otherwise. Product refers to the
Fabric OS, Network OS, or IronWare OS devices.
• Open in Firewall — Whether the port needs to be open in the firewall.
