Overview
Network Configuration Utility and Scripting
The HP Network Configuration Utility (NCU) enables configuration of network adapters and teams of
network adapters. The scripting feature of the utility provides the ability to perform adapter configuration
using a batch process.
This guide provides information about using the HP Network Adapter Scripting Utility to configure HP
adapters.
Scripting functionality
Scripting functionality provides the capability to configure a target system based on configuration
information saved from a source server. The target system is not required to be identical to the source
server. The configuration of the source server may not be duplicated in its entirety on the target system.
Both adapters and teams of adapters can be configured on the target system. When scripting is run, the
adapter properties specified in the data file from the source server are used to modify the configuration of
the adapters on the target system. Refer to "Preliminary scripting information (on page 5)" for details
about running the scripting utility.
Overview 4
Scripting
Preliminary scripting information
When using scripting to configure target systems, adapters are identified by their relative order in the
system.
The relative order is determined by the following properties.
•
Slot and port order for adapters in non-HP BladeSystem configurations
•
Enclosure switch bay number and switch port order for adapters in HP BladeSystem configurations
Adapters embedded on the system board are assigned the lowest numbers, followed by adapters ordered
by their slot or switch bay number with the lowest slot or switch bay number first. Multiport adapters are
ordered by ascending port or switch port number within each slot.
Order of adapters on target systems
Adapters on the target system are configured to match the corresponding adapter number on the source
server.
•
The first adapter on the target system is configured using data from the first adapter on the source
server.
•
The second adapter on the target system is configured using data from the second adapter on the
source server, and so on.
•
If the target system has more adapters than the source server, then the extra adapters retain their
current settings.
•
If the target system has fewer adapters than the source server, data for additional adapters on the
source server is ignored.
HP Multifunction adapters on target systems
To transfer iSCSI, TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE), or Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) parameters on an HP
multifunction adapter, the following conditions apply:
•
The multifunction adapter must be located in the same relative position on the target server as on the
source server.
•
If these multifunction parameters are assigned to an adapter that does not support iSCSI, TOE, or
RSS, they are ignored.
•
If an adapter supports these multifunction parameters but the parameters are not assigned, the
existing settings are left unchanged.
Microsoft Scalable Networking Pack (SNP) is required when enabling TOE or RSS and is included
on systems running Windows Server 2003 (SP2) and Windows Server 2003 x64 (SP2). SNP also is
supported, but not included, on systems running Windows Server 2003 (SP1) and Windows Server
2003 x64 (SP1). To enable TOE or RSS adapter functionality on a system running Windows Server
2003 (SP1) or Windows Server 2003 x64 (SP1), you must download SNP and required Microsoft
hotfixes and install them on the system. See the Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com) website to
Scripting 5
download the latest version of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Scalable Networking Pack (SNP)
and required Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (SP1) hotfixes in article numbers 921136, 919948,
and 923187 of the Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB). These Microsoft hotfixes are required only for
Windows Server 2003 (SP1) and Windows Server 2003 x64 (SP1).
RSS support on PCIe gigabit server adapters
RSS is supported on NC110T, NC360T, and NC364T PCIe gigabit server adapters running Microsoft
Scalable Networking Pack (SNP) on Windows Server 2003 (SP2) and Windows Server 2003 x64 (SP2).
These adapters also support RSS running SNP on Windows Server 2003 (SP1) and Windows Server
2003 x64 (SP1); however, SNP is not included with SP1 and must be downloaded and installed along
with required Microsoft hotfixes. See the Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com) website to download the
latest version of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Scalable Networking Pack (SNP) and required
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (SP1) hotfixes in article numbers 921136, 919948, and 923187 of the
Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB). These Microsoft hotfixes are required only for Windows Server 2003
(SP1) and Windows Server 2003 x64 (SP1).
To transfer the RSS parameter on one of these adapters, the following conditions apply:
•
The adapter must be located in the same relative position on the target server as on the source
server.
•
If the RSS parameter is assigned to an adapter that does not support RSS, it is ignored.
•
If an adapter supports the RSS parameter but the parameter is not assigned, the existing settings are
left unchanged.
Teams on target systems
The target system is configured with the same number of teams that were present on the source server.
•
Teams are created on the target system consisting of the same relative adapters that were teamed on
the source server. For example, if adapters 3 and 5 were teamed on the source server, then that
teaming information is saved in the data file, and adapters 3 and 5 are teamed on the target
system.
•
In general, the adapters on the team on the target system do not have to be the same type of
adapters that were teamed on the source server. However, some adapters cannot be teamed and if
an attempt is made to form a team with invalid combinations of adapters an error occurs. For
example, teams with different speed capabilities cannot be teamed on a load balancing team.
•
An error occurs in the configuration if the adapters forming the team on the source server are not
present on the target system. For example, if adapters 3 and 5 are teamed on the source server, but
the target system has only four adapters, an error is reported and the configuration is not applied.
•
When teams are configured on the target system, the team properties are set to the values read from
the data file for the corresponding team on the source server. Properties not specified in the data file
(and properties specified with invalid data values) are configured using their default settings.
•
If no teams are configured on the source server, no teaming information is written to the data file
and configuration of the target system consists only of configuring individual adapters.
Script conversion
Scripts created with previous versions of the NCU are supported; however, HP recommends that you
recreate the script using the latest version of the NCU. Several operating modes in scripts generated with
NCU versions 7.7x and earlier have changed and are converted as follows:
Scripting 6
•
Manual is converted to Network Fault Tolerance Only (NFT).
•
SmartSwitch is converted to Network Fault Tolerance Only with Preference Order.
•
For Smart Switch Teams, the existing PreferredPrimaryNic attribute determines which team member
should be more highly ranked than others within the PreferredPrimaryRanking attribute.
All other unspecified parameters use their defaults.
Scripting application (CQNICCMD)
CQNICCMD is a Windows utility that processes a network adapter configuration script file to duplicate
the adapter teaming configuration of a source ProLiant BL/ML/DL server on a target server.
This utility is supported on the following Windows operating systems:
•
Windows Server 2008
•
Windows Server 2008 x64 Editions
•
Windows Server 2003
•
Windows Server 2003 x64 Editions
Run the utility from the command line in a Command Prompt window, from the Run option on the
Windows Start menu, or from a Windows command file. To execute the CQNICCMD utility from the
command line, the HP Network Configuration Utility (NCU) must be closed.
HP recommends that you use this application as part of the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit (SSST)
deployment. However, the application can be used outside of this environment. Follow these steps when
using the scripting application.
1.
Configure adapter teaming on the source server.
2.
Generate a script file on the source server by clicking Save in the HP NCU user interface or running
CQNICCMD /S<filename> in the Command Line utility.
3.
Modify the script file as necessary.
If you modify the script file, HP recommends that you run CQNICCMD/ P to check the syntax of the
modified file and check the log file for errors and warnings. The default location of the log file is
\cpqsystem\log\cpqteam.log on the system drive. The syntax of the /P option is cqniccmd
/p<filename>
4.
Install the HP NCU on the target system.
5.
Run the Command Line utility with the following syntax.
cqniccmd /c<filename>
6.
Check the log file for errors and warnings. The default location of the log file is
\cpqsystem\log\cpqteam.log on the system drive.
For use of this utility with the SmartStart Scripting Toolkit (SSST), refer to the documentation included
with SSST. The SSST can be downloaded from http://www.hp.com/servers/proliantessentials
(http://www.hp.com/servers/proliantessentials).
Command line syntax
CQNICCMD [[F/] /C<filename>] [/D] [/L <filename>] [/P <filename>]
[/S<filename>] [/?]
Only one of the following configuration options can be specified at a time:
Scripting 7
/S
/D
/C
/P
The /L argument can be used with any of the configuration options. The /F argument can only be used
with the /C configuration option.
Command line arguments
Argument
Description
/S
This configuration option causes the source server configuration to be saved. The name of
the XML configuration data file must be specified and the path to the data file must exist.
This option is identical to saving the source server configuration by clicking Save in the
Network Teaming Configuration user interface.
/D
This configuration option causes all teams on the target server to be dissolved, all VLANs
to be removed, and 802.1p/q Packet Tagging to be disabled for all adapters that had
no VLANs. No additional arguments are required or allowed with this option.
/C
This configuration option applies the configuration specified in the data file to the target
system. An existing XML configuration data file must be specified following the target
switch. A space following the switch is optional. Any teams that exist on the target server
will be dissolved before the configuration is applied, all VLANs will be removed, and
802.1p/q Packet Tagging will be disabled.
/P
This option is identical to the /C option, except that the configuration options are not
applied to the target system. This is useful for syntax checking the XML data file.
/L
This option can be used to change the name and location of the cpqteam.log default log
file that is created in \cpqsystem\log on the system drive. The supplied path must exist.
An invalid log file name will cause the configuration to terminate with no changes. HP
recommends this option only in batch files.
/F
This option causes all errors, including those errors normally treated as non-fatal errors, to
be treated as fatal errors. This argument can be used only with the /C option.

Configuration properties
Adapter configuration properties
The following properties are configured on the target server adapters from the source server data.
Properties that are common to all HP adapters include:
•
SpeedDuplex—Determines the current speed and duplex of the adapter. Possible values include
Auto/Auto, 10/Half, 10/Full, 100/Half, 100/Full, 1000/Full. The default is Auto/Auto. The value
must be valid for the adapter on the target system.
•
PreferredPrimaryRanking—Determines the preferred primary ranking of the adapter. This value is
written only for adapters that are teamed.
•
ConfiguredPortCost—Defines the port cost for the adapter. The default is 0. This value is written only
for adapters that are teamed.
•
DefaultVlanId—Determines the VLAN ID used for any un-tagged packets received by the adapter.
This only applies to adapters that have VLANs defined.
•
VlanID—Specifies the VLAN identifier value for the device.
•
VlanName—Specifies the descriptive name for the VLAN ID. Every VLAN must have a name
assigned to it. Duplicate names are allowed if you want to use the same names for different VLan
IDs.
•
NetworkAddress—This value is written only for adapters that are not teamed. It overrides the burnedin address with a locally administered address. A null value is always written to the XML data file
because locally administered addresses must be unique. A null value is valid and indicates the
network address is the burned-in address. This value must be a valid unicast address if it is edited.
HP Multifunction adapter properties
The following properties are common only to HP Multifunction adapters.
To transfer iSCSI, TCP/IP Offload Engine (TOE), and Receive-Side Scaling (RSS) parameters on an
adapter, the adapter must be located in the same relative position on the target machine as on the source
machine.
If the following parameters are assigned to an adapter that does not support iSCSI, TOE, or RSS, they are
ignored. If an adapter supports these multifunction parameters but the parameters are not assigned, the
existing settings are left unchanged.
•
iSCSIEnabled—Causes Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) to be configured for the
adapter. 0=Disabled. 1=Enabled. The default setting is Disabled.
•
iSCSIVlanId—Specifies the iSCSI VLAN identifier value for the iSCSI enabled device.
•
iSCSIVlanName—Specifies the descriptive name for the iSCSI VLAN ID.
Configuration properties 10
•
iSCSIPacketPriority—Specifies the QoS Packet Priority for the iSCSI enabled device. Possible values
are D=Disabled and 1-7. The default setting is D (Disabled).
•
iSCSIDHCPEnabled—Specifies that DHCP is used to acquire an IP configuration for the iSCSI
enabled device. Possible settings are Enabled and Disabled. The default setting is Enabled.
•
iSCSIIPAddress—If DHCP is not used, this specifies the IPv4 address (dotted decimal) for the iSCSI
enabled device. If DHCP is enabled, the value is 0.0.0.0; otherwise, enter the actual IP address.
•
iSCSISubnetMask—If DHCP is not used, this property specifies the network subnet mask (dotted
decimal) for the iSCSI enabled device. If DHCP is enabled, the value is 0.0.0.0, otherwise, enter the
actual subnet mask.
•
iSCSIGateway—If DHCP is not used, this specifies the default route for the iSCSI enabled device. If
DHCP is enabled or no gateway is used, the value is 0.0.0.0, otherwise, type the actual IP address.
•
iSCSILAA—(Locally Administered Address) specifies the user-defined MAC address of the iSCSI
enabled device. A null value is always written to the XML data file because locally administered
addresses must be unique. A null value is valid and indicates the network address is the burned-in
address. This value must be a valid unicast address if it is edited.
o
The following team types are not supported for iSCSI-enabled adapters. Disable iSCSI on the
adapter or team before changing to any of the incompatible team types.
— Automatic
— 802.3ad Dynamic with Fault Tolerance
— Switch-assisted Load Balancing with Fault Tolerance (SLB)

Error handling and reporting
Error checking and completion code
Errors can occur for a variety of reasons including differences between the source and target system NICs
or because of errors introduced by editing the XML data file. The software performs extensive error
checking as the XML data file is read and processed.
When invalid property values are detected, a WARNING error message is written to a log file and
configuration continues with either default or existing values.
When the cqniccmd is run from a command line or a Windows command file, a completion code is
written as an error level code to both a log file and the screen. This error code can be used by the
Windows command file to determine how to proceed. The error level codes are as follows:
•
Successful start of the action returns a completion code of error level zero (0).
•
Non fatal errors return a completion code of error level one (1).
•
An invalid log file returns a completion code of error level two (2).
•
Other fatal errors return a completion code of error level three (3) or greater.
The specific information about all errors can be determined by viewing the log file located at
\cpqsystem\log\cpqteam.log (defaulted location).
