Restrictive Active Directory environments
If the 3PAR StoreServ system is placed in a restrictive
Active Directory environment, it may require pre-staging
Active Directory objects or certain administrative
permissions. See the following Microsoft articles for more
information:
Record network information
It is critical to have the correct networking information
available before proceeding with the system installation
and configuration. It may be necessary to pre-stage DNS
information. Contact your system administrator to clarify
network configuration requirements.

Confirm that the IP address and names are not already
in use.
The HP 3PAR StoreServ File Controller requires a
minimum of 6 IP addresses. These addresses may be
statically assigned or assigned by a DHCP server or
both. If you are using static addressing or a DHCP server
that does not automatically update DNS, ensure that
both forward and reverse DNS information (A and PTR
records) is pre-staged in the DNS server.

IMPORTANT: Before joining the 3PAR StoreServ
system nodes to the Active Directory domain,
ensure that there is network connectivity between
each node and the domain controller.

If you will be adding the StoreEasy system to an Active Directory
domain, some additional tests include:
Ping the domain

StoreEasy system.
ping <domain controller

You can deploy the product as a standalone system,
or use multiple systems to deploy a Windows
failover cluster. If you are setting up a cluster
configuration, you must connect a cable between
the servers to complete the initial setup. Connect a
cable between the ports identified as callout 1 in
Figure 1, which enables you to create a simplified
two-node cluster later in the HP Initial Configuration
Tasks (ICT) window. If more than two nodes are
desired in the cluster, create the two–node cluster
first, then add nodes later.

NOTE: By default, iLO obtains the
management IP address and subnet
mask from your network’s DHCP server.
The hostname found on the iLO tag is
automatically registered with your
network’s DNS server.

Install the rail kit by following the HP Rack Rail Kit
Installation Instructions, which is packaged with the
rail kit.
Install the storage system into the rack.
3.
After installation completes and the server (or servers
if deploying a cluster) reboots, you are
automatically logged on as the local administrator
(using the default Windows Administrator password
of HPinvent!). If you are deploying a cluster,
continue to work only with the server on which you
used the Setup Windows Wizard.
The HP Initial Configuration Tasks (ICT) window launches
automatically at logon. The tasks presented vary
depending on whether you have chosen to deploy a
standalone system or a cluster. For more information on
any of these tasks, click the help icon for the appropriate
task group in the ICT window.
IMPORTANT: HP strongly recommends that you
validate your configuration when using clusters.
Whether you create a cluster through the ICT or
the Failover Cluster Manager, one of the first steps
is validating your configuration using the Microsoft
cluster validation tool. If you choose to skip the
validation step, you can still validate the cluster
after it is created.

Access the storage system
Use either the direct attach or remote management
method to connect to the storage system.
Power on and complete the configuration
1.
IMPORTANT: Only the direct attach and remote
management access methods can be used to
install the storage system. After the storage system
installation process is complete and the server’s
IP addresses have been assigned, you can then
additionally use the remote desktop method to
access the storage system.
Install the storage system hardware
1.
Using the default user information provided on
the iLO Network Settings tag, log on to iLO,
and then launch a remote console to the
storage system.
For detailed instructions about using each of these access
methods, see the HP 3PAR StoreServ File Controller
Administrator Guide or the HP iLO 4 User Guide, which
you can search for (by product name) at:
pingpath <DNS server
name> (Repeat for each DNS
server)
Additionally, verify that the DNS information is valid for
the cluster and file server. HP recommends that you also
verify the iLO IP address and name resolution; however,
this is not critical to support the cluster and file server.
Connect a power cable to the storage system.
Locate the iLO Network Settings tag attached
to the storage system and record the default
user name, password, and DNS name.
From a remote computer, open a standard
Web browser and enter the iLO management
hostname of the storage system.
•
IMPORTANT:
If you are deploying a
cluster, only interact with one of the servers.
After powering on both servers, the Setup
Windows Wizard and the Initial
Configuration Tasks must be run from only
one server.
Direct attach —This access method is mandatory if
your network does not have a Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. Connect the
following cables to the back panel of the storage
system in the following sequence: keyboard, mouse,
network cables, monitor cable, and power cable.
NOTE: The keyboard, mouse, and monitor
are not provided with the storage system.
•
Power on the system by pushing the power button
on the front panel. If using iLO, click Momentary
Press under the Power Switch menu of the remote
console.
2.
Remote management—Access the storage system
using the Integrated Lights-Out (iLO) remote
management method:
1. Connect the desired network cables to network
adapter ports on the back of the storage
system.
2. Connect a network cable to the iLO port
located on the back of the storage system.
Page 2
The storage system starts and displays the Setup
Windows wizard, in which you select language
and regional settings and accept the license
agreement.
After completing the wizard, you are asked if you
want to configure a standalone system or a
two-node cluster. Click Yes to configure your system
as a cluster or click No to configure your system as
a standalone server. The storage system installation
process takes approximately 10–15 minutes.
