The CLI is designed to mirror the capabilities of the BUI, while also providing a powerful scripting environment for performing repetitive tasks. The following sections describe details of the CLI. When navigating through the CLI, there are two principles to be aware of:

Tab completion is used extensively: if you are not sure what to type in any given context, pressing the Tab key will provide you with possible options. Throughout the documentation, pressing Tab is presented as the word "tab" in bold italics.

Help is always available: the help command provides context-specific help. Help on a particular topic is available by specifying the topic as an argument to help, for example help

commands

. Available topics are displayed by tab-completing the help command, or by typing help topics.

You can combine these two principles, as follows: dory:> help tab builtins commands general help properties script

Connect to the server ILOM (Service Processor) on the server platform to diagnose hardware faults that do not appear in the BUI.

In a cluster environment, an ILOM connection should be made to each controller.

The server ILOM provides options for (i) network and (ii) serial port connectivity. Network connection is the preferred choice, as the ILOM serial port does not always allow adequate means of platform data collection.

WARNING

: Failure to configure ILOM connectivity may lead to longer than necessary hardware fault diagnosis and resolution times.

Power Tasks

Powering On the Appliance

You can access the system by connecting an administrative client to the serial management port on the controller. Alternatively, if there is a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server on the network, you can access the system by connecting the network management port to your network.

Note that if you are installing a cluster, configure only one controller initially. The software propagates the configuration to the peer controller during cluster initialization. After the cluster is initialized, you can administer the system from either storage controller. However, do not attempt initial configuration on both controllers independently. Refer to the Cluster documentation in the System Administration Guide located on http://wikis.sun.com/display/ fishworks (http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks) for more information.

1

To perform initial configuration using serial, connect a serial cable from the SER MGT port on the back panel of the controller to the serial port on the administrative client. Use a DB9 to RJ45 adapter if necessary.

2

To perform initial configuration using Ethernet, connect an Ethernet cable from the NET MGT port on the back panel of the controller to your network.

3

Connect an Ethernet cable from your network to the NET0 port on the back panel of the controller.

4

For 7120, 7320 and 7420, power on any disk shelves attached to the storage system by plugging the two power cords into the universal power connectors, connecting the cords to the external power source and turning on the disk shelf power switches. Wait several minutes until the power indicators are lit a steady green.

For 7700/7720, ensure that the circuit breakers are in the OFF position before connecting the six power cords for the storage rack to wall sockets that are controlled by individual circuit breakers. Connect three of the circuit breakers to one power source, and connect the remaining three to a different power source. This is required to maintain power protection through redundant power sources. See

Cabinet Electrical Specifications .

5

For 7120, 7320 and 7420, connect power cables to power supply 0 and power supply 1 on the storage controller(s) and wait until the Power/OK LED on the front panel next to the Power button lights and remains lit (approximately two minutes).

For 7700/7720, switch all of the wall circuit breakers to the ON position. Wait until the

Power/OK LEDs light and remain lit.

6

Open a terminal window or terminal emulator and issue the appropriate command, as follows:

7

For a serial port concentrator connect (for example, using telnet), and use root as the user name

and replace serial-concentrator portnumber with the appropriate value, for example: telnet

serial-concentrator portnumber

8

For a network connection, connect using SSH and use root as the user name and determine the

IP address by accessing your DHCP server for the address assigned to the Service Processor MAC address (see the label on the storage controller), for example: ssh [email protected]

Initial Configuration

The initial configuration consists of six configuration steps.

1. Network

2. DNS

3. Time

4. Name Services (NIS, LDAP, Active Directory)

5. Storage

6. Registration & Support

Prerequisites

The initial configuration of the system is conducted after powering it on for the first time and establishing a connection, as documented in the

Installation

section, also available as a PDF on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks/Documentation. (http://wikis.sun.com/display/ fishworks/Documentation.

)

Note

that the option to perform initial configuration of a cluster is only available in the BUI. If electing this option, read the clustering documentation included in the Sun ZFS Storage 7000

Administration Guide at http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks (http://wikis.sun.com/ display/fishworks

) before beginning initial configuration for detailed additional steps that are required for successful cluster setup. Pay careful attention to the Clustering Considerations for Networking section. Alternatively, cluster-capable appliances may be initially configured for standalone operation using the following procedure, and re-configured for cluster operation at a later time.

Summary

This procedure will configure networking connectivity, several client network services, and the layout of the storage pool for standalone operation. When completed, the appliance is ready for use - but will not have any shares configured for remote clients to access. To create shares or revisit settings, refer to the Shares and Configuration sections of the Sun ZFS Storage 7000

System Administration Guide on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks.

(http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks.)

This procedure may be repeated at a later time by clicking the

"INITIAL SETUP" button on the

Maintenance > System screen or by entering the maintenance system setup context in the

CLI.

Chapter 4 • Powering On and Configuring the System 95

Initial

BUI

The BUI initial configuration is the preferred method and provides a screen for each of the initial configuration steps.

96

Click Start to begin basic configuration of network, time directory and support services. Click

Commit to save the configuration and go to the next screen. Arrows beneath the Commit button can be used to revisit previous steps, and change the configuration if desired.

Configuring Management Port

All standalone controllers should have at least one NIC port configured as a management interface. Select the Allow Admin option in the BUI to enable BUI connections on port 215 and

CLI connections on ssh port 22.

All cluster installations should have at least one NIC port on each controller configured as a management interface as described above. In addition, the NIC instance number must be unique on each controller.

CLI

Alternatively, use the CLI to step through the initial configuration sections. Each step begins by printing its help, which can be reprinted by typing help. Use the done command to complete each step.
