About the Navisphere Storage System Initialization Utility
For CX3-series and CX-series Fibre Channel storage systems, use the
utility to discover storage systems, and set network parameters (IP
address, subnet mask, and default gateway).
Note: For CX-series storage systems, 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. In addition, for
AX150 iSCSI storage systems, use the utility to set network parameters
for the storage system’s iSCSI data ports.
You can run the Navisphere Storage System Initialization Utility from
the server support CD or you can install it on a server that is connected
to the storage system. We recommend that you install the utility on at
least one server that is connected to the storage system.

Note: The Navisphere Initialization Utility runs on servers attached to
CX3-series, CX700, CX500-series, CX300-series, and AX-series storage systems.
CX3 model 10 systems must be running FLARE® OE 03.24.010.5.xxx or later.
CX3 model 20 systems, CX3 model 40 systems, and CX3 model 80 systems
must be running FLARE OE 03.22.xxx.5.yyy or later. CX700, CX500-series,
and CX300-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.
AX100-series systems must be running FLARE OE 02.16.xxx.5.yyy or later.
About the Navisphere Host Agent
The host agent registers the server’s HBA (host bus adapter) with the
attached storage system when the host 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. For legacy
storage systems, the host agent will send the initiator records only if
Access Logix™ software is installed.
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:
Š
Send drive mapping information to the attached CLARiiON®
storage systems.
Š
Monitor storage-system events and can notify personnel by email,
page, or modem when any designated event occurs.
Š
Retrieve LUN WWN (world wide name) and capacity information
from Symmetrix® storage systems.
The host agent runs on servers attached to CX3–series and CX–series. It also
runs on servers attached to AX-series storage systems that have been upgraded
to Navisphere Manager, that is, that have the Navisphere Manager enabler
installed.
About the Navisphere Server Utility
The server utility allows you to perform the following three functions:
4
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
Š
Update server information to the storage system — This option
sends the server name and IP address to the storage system and,
if needed later on, allows you to update or view this data. For
Windows servers running Navisphere Server Utility version 6.20 or
higher, if the Registration Service feature remains enabled after the
installation of the server utility, the utility will automatically register
the server’s NICs or HBAs with the storage system and update
server information whenever there is a configuration change (for
example, when you mount new volumes or create new partitions).
Š
Verify server high availability (HA) — Allows you to determine if
the server is configured for high availability (HA) by verifying that
the server has at least one connection path to each storage system
SP, and that PowerPath or some other failover software, such as
DMP or PV Links, is running. The utility will not detect any other
native failover software, such as Sun StorEdge Traffic Manager or
Linux native multipath (MPIO).
This feature is currently supported only on CX3–series and CX-series
storage systems and is not available on Solaris iSCSI servers.
Š
Use the snapshot feature — Storage systems running Navisphere
Express can start and stop a snapshot on the source server (server
assigned to the source virtual disk), or can allow or remove access
to the snapshot by the secondary server (server assigned to the
snapshot).
You can run the Navisphere Server Utility from the CD or you can
install it on the servers that are connected to the storage system. We
strongly recommend that you install the utility on each server that is
connected to the storage system.

About the Admsnap Utility
The Admsnap Utility is an executable program that you can run
interactively or by a script to manage SnapView® clones and snapshots.
The Admsnap Utility resides on the servers connected to the storage
system with the SnapView driver installed.
Use admsnap commands to:
6
Š
Scan for new storage devices
Š
Make storage devices inaccessible to the server operating system
Š
Flush cache data to disk
Š
List current snapshot devices
Š
Map and unmap to a SnapView session
Š
Start and stop a SnapView session
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
Note: The Admsnap Utility runs on servers attached to CX3-series and
CX-series. It also runs on servers attached to AX-series storage systems that
have been upgraded to Navisphere Manager, that is, that have the Navisphere
Manager enabler installed. If you upgraded to Navisphere Manager and
want to manage snapshots, you must use the SnapView software and the
Admsnap Utility. For more information on SnapView and admsnap, refer to
the Navisphere Manager help and the EMC SnapView Command Line Interfaces
Reference.
About the Navisphere CLI
The CLI complements or can be used as an alternative to Manager. It
provides a command line interface for storage-system management,
including storage provisioning, status and configuration information
retrieval, and control. You can use the CLI to automate management
functions through shell scripts and batch files. Navisphere CLI includes
the Secure, Classic, and Java CLI functionalities. For more information,
refer to the EMC Navisphere Command Line Interface (CLI) Reference Guide.
Note: The Navisphere CLI can run on servers or remote management stations
that are attached to CX3-series and CX-series. It can also run on servers or
remote management stations that are attached to AX100 and AX150 storage
systems that have been upgraded to Navisphere Manager, that is, that have the
Navisphere Manager enabler installed.

Running the Navisphere Storage System Initialization Utility
You can start the storage system initialization utility from the server
on which it is installed or from the server support CD. The storage
system initialization utility has two methods for executing commands
— a command line interface that can be scripted, or a text-based utility
that cannot be scripted. Before continuing make sure that the storage
system is powered up completely.
Note: Before using the Navisphere Storage System Initialization Utility, make
sure that you know the static IP addresses for the storage system SPs (for
example, http://123.45.6.7 and 123.45.6.8), the subnet mask, and the default
gateway address. For storage system initialization, connect the server from
which you are running the utility and the storage system to the same network
subnet, Once you have assigned an IP address to the storage system, the server
and storage system can be on different subnets.
Starting and using the storage system initialization utility on a Solaris server
This section describes the supported methods for starting and using the
storage system initialization utility.
Starting the initialization utility from a server

EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
Determining whether to install the host agent or server utility
Depending on your application needs, you can install the host agent,
server utility, or both on an attached server.
If you want to install both applications, you must install revision
6.22.20 or later of the server utility either before or after you install the
host agent. The registration feature of the server utility will be disabled
and the host agent will be used to register the server’s NICs or iSCSI
HBAs to the storage system.
Note: Prior to revision 6.22.20 of the server utility, you could not install the host
agent and server utility on the same server. However, you could install them
on different servers that are connected to the same storage system.
If you do not want to install both applications, but want to use some
of the features available in the server utility, you can run the server
utility from the server support CD.
If you have an AX-series storage system running Navisphere Express,
you must install the server utility. The host agent is supported only
on CX3-series, CX-series, and AX-series storage systems running
Navisphere Manager.
Table 1 describes the differences between the host agent and the server
utility on a server attached to a storage system.
Important: Depending on the revision of the server utility, some of the features
listed in Table 1 may not be available.

Requirements for the host agent, server utility, and CLI
To run the host agent, CLI, or server utility, your server must meet
the following requirements:
Š
Run a supported version of the Solaris operating system.
Š
Be a Sun SPARCserver, SPARCstation, or Enterprise server running
a supported revision of a Solaris operating system. For the latest
requirements see the software product release notes.
Š
Have the EMC CLARiiON supported HBA hardware and driver
installed.
Š
Be connected to each SP in each storage system either directly or
through a switch or hub. Each SP must have an IP connection.
Š
For the host agent and CLI only- Be on a TCP/IP network connected
to each SP in the storage system. The TCP/IP network connection
allows the server to send LUN mapping information to the storage
system and it allows Navisphere Manager or CLI to communicate
with the storage system over the network.
Š
Have a configured TCP/IP network connection to any remote hosts
that you will use to manage the server’s storage systems, including:
z
any server whose browser you will use to access Manager 6.X.
z
any Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 server running
Storage Management Server software.
z
any AIX, HP-UX, Linux, VMware ESX Server, NetWare, Solaris,
Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000 server running the CLI.
If you want to use the CLI on the server to manage storage systems on
a remote server, the server must be on a TCP/IP network connected
to both the remote server and each SP in the remote server’s storage
system. The remote server can be running AIX, HP-UX, Linux, Solaris,
or the Windows operating system.

EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
Note: For information about the specific revisions of the server operating
system and the storage-system FLARE and Access Logix software that are
required for your revision of the host agent, see the release notes for the host
agent on the EMC Powerlink website. To access this website, see Finding current
information, page 8 .
Power-Cycling the storage system
Note: Do not issue verify_disk_array while the SP is powering up. You must
wait until the SP has completed the powerup cycle.
Solaris does not generally support the powering down of a storage
device while the Solaris server is running. There are, however,
occasions when we recommend power-cycling a storage system as part
of service. When power-cycling a storage system, it is important to
observe the following guidelines:
Š
If the system is booted from the storage system, the server must be
shut down before the storage system is powered down.
Š
If the system does not boot from the storage system, it is still
important to unmount any file systems on the storage system before
power-cycling the storage system.
Š
EMC recommends that you stop all I/O, including raw I/O, before
power-cycling the storage system. However, the system will not
panic if raw I/O occurs when the storage system is powered down.
If there is any attempt at I/O while the storage system is off or
while it is going through its boot sequence, the failover software
will attempt to fail over.

Installing or removing the Navisphere Host Agent and CLI
You can install both the host agent and CLI package or just the CLI
package. If you will install both, install the host agent first.
To modify an existing host agent configuration refer to the next section.
Note: If you want to install the host agent and use some of the features in
the server utility, see Determining whether to install the host agent or server
utility, page 17.
Installing the host agent and/or CLI on a Solaris server
EMC recommends that you install the most recent version of the
Navisphere Host Agent/ CLI software that is appropriate for your
configuration. You can download the most recent version from either
the software download page on the Powerlink website (CX3–series and
CX-series) or on the support website (AX-series storage systems). You
can also install the software from the server support CD (any storage
system); however, the CD may not contain the most recent version for
your configuration.
1. If you are installing the host agent, make sure that each storage
system is connected to the Solaris server where you are installing
the host agent.
2. At the Solaris server, log in as superuser (root).
3. If any previous revision of the host agent/CLI is installed on the
server, remove it before continuing.
Note: To verify if a previous version is installed, enter the pkginfo |grep
HOST command.
4. To download the software for CX3–series or CX-series storage
systems, do the following:
a. On the Powerlink website, select Support > Software
Downloads and Licensing and navigate to the CLARiiON
Navisphere Host Agent/ CLI download section for Solaris.
22
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
b. Select the appropriate host agent version to download and select
the option to save the zip file to your server.
c. At the command line prompt, navigate to the directory where
you saved the zip file and unzip the file.
unzip Sun-NAVIAGNT-version.zip
where version is the version listed in the filename.
d. Enter the following command to install the host agent and/or
CLI package:
pkgadd -d NAVIAGNT.pkg
5. To download the software for AX-series storage systems, do the
following:
a. On the support website select Download for AX150 series or
Register to Download software for AX100 series.
b. Select the appropriate Navisphere Server Utility version to
download and select the option to save the zip file to your server.
c. At the command line prompt, navigate to the directory where
you saved the zip file and unzip the file.
unzip Sun-NAVIAGNT-version.zip
where version is the version listed in the filename.
d. Enter the following command to install the host agent and/or
CLI package:
pkgadd -d NAVIAGNT.pkg
6. To install the software from the server support CD (any storage
system), do the following:
a. In the server’s drive, insert the server support CD that shipped
with your storage system or your upgrade kit (for AX-series
systems upgrading to Navisphere Manager).
b. In a shell, enter the following command:
/cdrom/cdrom0/solaris pkgadd -d /solaris/NAVIAGNT.pkg
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
23
7. Select the packages that you want to install by doing one of the
following:
Š
Enter 1 (to install the host agent)
Š
Enter 2 (to install CLI)
Š
Enter All (to install both the host agent and CLI)
8. Enter y and y to begin the installation.
The installation program looks for any agent configuration files
you may already have on your system. If the program does
not find any agent configuration files, then you have finished
installing the agent; go to step 10. If the program does find any
existing configuration files, it displays a message like the following:
At Least 1 saved config file exists for Navisphere
Agent.
Please select 1 of the following:
[1]
Restore/etc/Navisphere/.Naviagent-config.000120:105
9
[2]
Restore/etc/Navisphere/.Naviagent-config.000121:140
8
[3] Quit
Select number 1 - 3.
9. Select the existing file you want to serve as the agent configuration
file. The software will retain that file and rename it with the required
agent filename, agent.config. Generally, you will want to use the
most recent file, as shown by the numeric date suffix. To use the
default configuration file, specify the number for the Quit option.
10. When the installation of the host agent is complete, a successful
message displays. If you are also installing the CLI, enter y at the
CLI installation prompt as you did for the agent.
11. If you installed the host agent/CLI from the server support CD,
when installation is complete, exit the /cdrom directory (for
example, execute cd /), and then remove the CD from the servers’s
CD drive.
Note: Any user who can access the management station can change or
delete the Navisphere files you just installed. You may want to change
permissions on these files to restrict access to them.
24
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
12. Verify the installation by entering the command pkginfo -l | grep
NAVI*.
Depending on what you installed, some of the following may be
displayed:
Š
NAVIAGENT: Navisphere Disk Array Management Tool
(Agent)
Š
NAVICLI: Navisphere Disk Array Management Tool (CLI)
Š
NAVISCLI: Navisphere Disk Array Management Tool (CLI)
13. If you have a multihomed host (multiple NIC cards installed on
the host), create an agentID.txt file to ensure that the agent finds
the correct NIC card.
Note: A multihomed host machine has multiple IP addresses connected to
networks; it is physically connected to multiple data links that can be on the
same or different networks. When you install Navisphere Host Agent on a
multihomed host, the host agent, by default, binds to the first NIC in the
host. If your host is multihomed, for the host agent to successfully register
with the desired CLARiiON storage system, you need to configure the host
agent to bind to a specific NIC. You do this by setting up an agentID.txt file.
a. Using a text editor that does not add special formatting, create
or edit a file named agentID.txt (case sensitive) in either / (root)
or in a directory of your choice.
b. Add the following two separate lines to the agentID.txt file,
with no special formatting:
First line: Fullyqualified hostname of the host
Second line: IP address of the HBA/NIC port that you
want Navisphere agent to use
For example, if your host is named host28 on the domain
mydomain.com and your host contains two HBAs/NICs,
HBA1/NIC1 with IP address 192.111.222.2 and HBA2/NIC2
with IP address 192.111.222.3, and you want the host agent to
use NIC 2, you would configure agentID.txt as follows:
host28.mydomain.com
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
25
192.111.222.3
Note: The agentID.txt file should contain only these two lines, without
any formatting. The first line should contain the hostname and the
second line should contain the IP address of the HBA/NIC port as
described above. Both lines should end with a carriage return. As a
result, the cursor will be on a third line but this line should not contain
any text.
c. Save the agentID.txt file.
d. If you created the agentID.txt file in a directory other than
root, for host agent to restart after a system reboot using the
correct path to the agentID.txt file, set the environment variable
EV_AGENTID_DIRECTORY to point to the directory where
you created agentID.txt.
e. If a HostIdFile.txt file is present in the directory shown for your
operating system, delete or rename it. The HostIdFile.txt file is
located in /etc/log/HostIdFile.txt.
f.
Stop and then restart the host agent.
g. Once the host agent has restarted, verify that host agent is using
the IP address that is entered in the agentID.txt file. To do this,
view the new HostIdFile.txt file. You should see the IP address
that is entered in the agentID.txt file.
What next?
Before you can use the host agent or CLI, you must modify the user
login scripts.
Modifying user login scripts
Use a text editor to modify login scripts as described below:
1. Use a text editor, such as vi, to make the following additions to the
specified paths in $HOME/.profile or $HOME/.cshrc:
Š
add the text /opt/Navisphere/bin to PATH
Š
add the text /opt/Navisphere/man to MANPATH
Š
add the text /opt/Navisphere/lib to LD_LIBRARY_PATH
2. Export each path you modified in the previous step.
26
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
3. View the paths using the echo command as follows:
Š
# echo $PATH
Š
# echo $MANPATH
Š
# echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
What next?
If you are setting up a new server, go to Running the Navisphere Host
Agent, page 31. If you are just upgrading the host agent or CLI on an
existing system, you are finished with the upgrade.
Removing the host agent and/or CLI on a Solaris server
Note: To avoid losing site-specific information, copy the host agent
configuration file (agent.config) to a safe location before removing any
Navisphere software. The following steps describe how to uninstall the host
agent (and the CLI if required).
1. Log in to the server as superuser (root) and start the X Window
System if it is not started.
2. At the command line in an X Window terminal emulator, enter the
following commands:
/etc/init.d/agent stop
cd pkgrm package
where:
package is NAVIAGENT or NAVICLI (these names must be
capitalized)
3. Enter y and y to remove the program.
Note: The removal program removes only the files that were installed
from the installation CD. Files that the CLI creates (for example, log files)
are not removed.
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
27
Configuring the Navisphere Host Agent
Before you can use the Navisphere CLI navicli register command
to configure a CX3-series, CX-series, or AX-series storage system
connected to a host agent, you must make sure the host agent
configuration file includes a privileged user, as described in Adding
privileged users, page 28.
Note: The pathname of the host agent configuration file is
/etc/Navisphere/agent.config .
If you are configuring a legacy storage system, refer to revision A09 of
this guide.
Note: A legacy system is an FC-series storage system that is not running
storage management server software.
Adding privileged users
If you will use Navisphere CLI to configure any storage system, the
host agent configuration file must include an entry that defines the
person who will issue the CLI commands as a privileged user.
To define a privileged user, add a local or remote privileged user by
adding the appropriate entry below.
For a local user:
user name
For a remote user:
user name@hostname
where name is the person’s account name and hostname is the name of
the remote server the person will be using.
The default host agent configuration file includes a user root entry.
Saving the host agent configuration file
1. Save the host agent configuration file.
28
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
2. If you are done adding information to the host
agent configuration file, stop and restart the host
agent by entering the following commands:
#/etc/init.d/agent stop
#/etc/init.d/agent start
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
29
Using the Event Monitor configuration file
The Navisphere Host Agent can monitor storage-system events and
take such action as sending email or paging you if specified events
occur. The Event Monitor that ships with Navisphere Manager
provides an interactive way to define these events and actions. If you
do not have Event Monitor, you can still define such events and actions
by editing the Event Monitor configuration file.
/etc/Navisphere/Navimon.cfg
The file is self-documenting; that is, text in it describes how to define
events and the actions you want taken if the events occur. You can
test the file after editing it using the Navisphere CLI command
responsetest, as explained in the Navisphere Command Line Interface
Reference.
30
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
Running the Navisphere Host Agent
This section describes how to test the host agent connections and how
to start and stop the host agent.
Starting and stopping the Navisphere Host Agent
On a Solaris server, the host agent starts automatically when you bring
the server up to init level 3. When you first start the host agent, look at
the system log for the server’s operating system to make sure the agent
started and no device errors occurred. The system log is located in
/var/log/messages.
Note: When a storage system experiences heavy input/output traffic (that is,
applications are using the storage system), information may not be reported
to the host agent in a timely manner, resulting in the host agent taking several
minutes to execute a storage-system management task. This behavior is most
evident when one host agent is managing multiple storage systems. Also, if the
SP event log is large and the host agent configuration file is set up to read all
the events, it may take a few minutes for the host agent to start.
Starting the host agent
Log in as root and enter this command:
/etc/init.d/agent start
Stopping the host agent
Log in as root and enter this command:
/etc/init.d/agent stop
Testing the host agent connections
Before continuing, you should test the host agent connections as
follows:
1. Start the host agent as described on Starting and stopping the
Navisphere Host Agent, page 31.
2. Look for any errors on the console and in the operating system log
to make sure the agent started and no device errors occurred.
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
31
3. Verify that the host agent on the server can see the storage system
as follows:
a. Enter the following CLI command:
navicli [-d device]| -h hostname port -list -hba
Note: You cannot specify both the –d switch and –h switch; you must
use one or the other.
where:
[-ddevice] is the device name for the storage system (only
supported with legacy systems).
-hhostname is the server name .
For each HBA in the server, a listing similar to the following will
be displayed. For storage systems in a SAN (shared storage)
environment, the listing includes HBAs in all connected hosts.
Information about each HBA:
HBA UID: 10:00:00:60:B0:3E:46:AC:10:00:00:60:B0:3E:46:AC
Server Name: siux134
Server IP Address: 128.221.208.134
HBA Model Description:
HBA Vendor Description:
HBA Device Driver Name:
Information about each port of this HBA:
SP Name: spa
HBA Devicename: sp0
Trusted: NO
Logged In: YES
Source ID: 1
Defined: YES
Initiator Type: 0
Storage Group Name:
Storage Group 134
b. In the listing, examine the information for each HBA installed in
the host to verify the path from the HBA to the SP.
32
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
c. In the listing, check the information for each HBA to make sure
it is logged into the appropriate SP in the storage system.
Host agent status and error logging
While the system is running, the operating system tracks information
about host agent events and host agent errors, and places this
information in log files on the server.
The host agent error log tracks information about the host agent’s
startup, the host agent shutdown, and errors that might occur, such as
the host agent’s inability to access a device in the configuration file. If
problems occur, log files are a good place to start your troubleshooting.
Host agent events and errors are logged in /var/adm/messages.
Note: Informational messages about host agent events are recorded in
/var/adm/log/agent.log.

Using the Navisphere Server Utility
The Navisphere Server Utility allows you to perform the following
functions:
Š
Update server information on the storage system
Š
Perform snapshot tasks (Navisphere Express only)
Š
Generate a high-availablity report (not available on Solaris servers
with iSCSI connections)
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
37
Updating server information on the storage system
The Update Server Information option allows you to send information
about the server to all connected storage systems. To update server
information, select option 1 from the server utility’s Welcome screen,
and follow the instructions on the utility.
Performing snapshot tasks
For information on using the snapshot tasks option, refer to the
Navisphere Express online help.
Generating a high-availability report
The Generate high availability report option (option 3) and the
naviserverutil hav [-upload] command determine if the server is
configured for high availability by verifying that the server has at least
one connection path to each storage-system SP, and that PowerPath or
some other failover software, such as DMP or PV Links, is running. The
utility will not detect any other native failover software, such as Sun
StorEdge Traffic Manager.
After the verification, the utility generates a summary report and saves
it to the server. If you issue the naviserverutil hav command with
the -upload switch, the utility also sends the report to the specified
storage system.
Generate a high-availability report to:
Š
check the status of a server.
Š
prepare for a software installation on a storage system.
Checking the status of a server
To periodically check the high availability status of a server, select
option 3 from the server utility’s Welcome screen, and follow the
instructions on the utility to generate a high-availability report.
Preparing for a software installation on a storage system
If you are generating a high-availability report as a prerequisite to
updating storage-system software, you need to upload this report to the
storage system prior to installing the software on the storage system.
To generate and upload an HA report, issue the following command
from the directory to which you installed the utility:
naviserverutilcli hav -upload -ip IPaddress |-h IPaddress|network_name
-user|-u username -password|-p userpassword -scope|-s scopelevel
38
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
-secfilepath securityfilepath -port 443|2163 [-directory outputdirectory]
where:
-ip IPaddress
Specifies the IP address of an SP on the storage system
to which you will upload the report. You cannot use
this switch in conjunction with the -h switch.
-h IPaddress | network_name
Specifies the IP address or the network name of an SP on the
storage system to which you will upload the report. You
cannot use this switch in conjunction with the -ip switch.
-user|-u username
Specifies the login name for the storage system. You must use this
switch in conjunction with the -password|-p and -scope|-s switches.
You cannot use this switch in conjunction with the -secfilepath switch.
-password|-p userpassword
Specifies the password required for access to the storage
system. You must use this switch in conjunction with
the -user|-u and -scope|-s switches. You cannot use
this switch in conjunction with the -secfilepath switch.
-scope|-s scopelevel
Specifies the level of access this username and password has to the
storage system - 0 = global; 1 = local; 2 = LDAP. You must use this
switch in conjunction with the -user|-u and -password|-p switches.
You cannot use this switch in conjunction with the -secfilepath switch.
-secfilepath securityfilepath
Searches the security file for the specified IP address. If the utility does
not find the specified IP address, then the utility will use the
default entry in the security file.
Important: A security file is required to run this switch. For information on
how to create a security file, refer to the EMC Navisphere Command Line (CLI)
Reference guide.
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
39
You cannot use this switch in conjunction with
the -user|-u, -password|-p , and -scope|-s switches.
-port 443|2163
Specifies the Navisphere Management
Server port number. The default is 443.
-directory outputdirectory
Specifies the directory to which you want to deposit the report on the
server. This switch is required only if you are running the server utility
from the CD. Otherwise the report is automatically saved to the
Navisphere Server Utility installation directory.
Note: If the server utility is installed on your server and you specify a directory,
the directory you specify will override the server utility’s installation directory.
After uploading the HA report
In addition to running the server utility to validate server high
availability, we strongly recommend that you perform the following
manual checks.
Š
Verify support of software and hardware — Make sure that you
have verified that all software and hardware is supported according
to EMC’s E-Lab™ Interoperability Navigator and support matrices.
Note: This tool does not verify that you are running supported switch
firmware, nor does it check that you are using redundant switches
(recommended).
Š
40
Upgrading storage–system software — If you are about to perform
a storage-system online software upgrade or you added an HBA, a
LUN, or changed connectivity (added a path or changed zoning):
z
Make sure that you have validated all software and hardware
are supported and interoperable according to EMC E-Lab
Interoperability Navigator and support matrices.
z
Verify that all LUNs (virtual disks) that your servers will access
during the upgrade are under path management software
control. For servers running PowerPath and DMP, see the
Failover Software section on the Details tab of the report and
EMC CLARiiON Server Support Products for Solaris Server Installation Guide
locate these LUNs. If they are not in the list, the server will lose
access to those LUNs during the software upgrade.
