Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes
Overview
Overview
It is now possible to employ the powerful storage management features of HP OpenView
Storage Area Manager on the HP OpenView Storage Management Appliance. These two
products provide diverse management capabilities for your storage area network (SAN).
Storage Management Appliance software v2.0 supports Storage Area Manager v3.0; Storage
Management Appliance software v2.1 supports Storage Area Manager v3.0 or v3.1.
HP OpenView Storage Area Manager
HP OpenView Storage Area Manager is a client/server software suite that provides centralized
storage monitoring and management capabilities.
The Storage Area Manager environment includes a management server, one or more clients,
and one or more SAN hosts. The management server software can be installed on a
Windows 2000 server, including now a Storage Management Appliance. The management
client is a Windows 2000, Windows XP, HP-UX, Linux, or Sun Solaris host on which the
Storage Area Manager user interface is installed. You access and run Storage Area Manager
from the management clients. The host agent software is installed on each SAN host to which
an interconnect or storage device is connected. The host agent enables communication
between the server and the storage devices. Host agent software can be installed on
Windows NT, Windows 2000, HP-UX, Tru64 UNIX, IBM AIX, Sun Solaris, and Linux hosts.
In addition, Storage Area Manager v3.1 host agents are available for Windows 2003,
Open VMS, and Netware.
The Storage Area Manager software suite consists of five applications that provide storage
resource and infrastructure management:
■
HP OpenView Storage Node Manager for device management
■
HP OpenView Storage Builder for capacity management
■
HP OpenView Storage Optimizer for performance management
■
HP OpenView Storage Accountant for metering and billing
■
HP OpenView Storage Allocater for access control and storage allocation
More information on Storage Area Manager is available on the SAM website at:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storage/software/sam/index.html
and the eCare website at:
http://support.openview.hp.com.
HP OpenView Storage Management Appliance
The HP OpenView Storage Management Appliance is a centralized, appliance-based
monitoring and management solution for the SAN. You can access the SMA software from
anywhere in the SAN through a supported Web browser (Internet Explorer or Netscape). The
SMA software lets you organize, configure, and monitor storage components from a single
Web-based navigation point. The SMA software also provides a launch site for a variety of
core and optional HP storage management applications, including:
■

Storage Management Appliance software v2.0 supports Storage Area Manager v3.0; Storage
Management Appliance software v2.1 supports Storage Area Manager v3.0 or v3.1. This
document clearly identifies the configuration procedures required for each version.
Hardware and Software Requirements
To successfully install and run Storage Area Manager on the SMA, you need the following:
■
Storage Management Appliance II, with an additional 1 GB of memory or
Storage Management Appliance III
■
Storage Area Manager v3.0 (v03.00.03.0021 or later) or v3.1
■
Storage Management Appliance software v2.0, with Service Pack 4 or
Storage Management Appliance software v2.1
See “Installation Prerequisites” on page 12 for additional requirements.
When installing Storage Area Manager on an SMA, the maximum recommended
configuration is 50 hosts and 10,000 host-LUNs.
Note: The first generation Storage Management Appliance (previously called SANworks
Management Appliance) cannot be upgraded to run Storage Area Manager. Storage Area
Manager installation can be performed only on a Storage Management Appliance II or later.
Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes

Storage Area Manager and SMA Implementation
Connecting to the SMA
After Storage Area Manager is installed on the SMA, you can connect to the SMA, either by
using Terminal Services from a remote system, or by attaching a monitor, keyboard, and
mouse directly to the SMA. This might be necessary when you need to access the Storage
Area Manager management server; for example, to perform troubleshooting activities or to
install required patches and device plug-ins (DPIs).
Terminal Services is a Microsoft communications program that is enabled on the Storage
Management Appliance so that you can gain access to it. You should also install Microsoft
Terminal Services client on your workstation. See the Microsoft website,
http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/technologies/terminal, for more information on
installing and using the Terminal Services client.
Accessing Storage Area Manager
After Storage Area Manager is installed on the SMA, and clients and hosts are configured, you
access and use Storage Area Manager in the usual way by connecting to the server from a
client. In this way, you have access to all Storage Area Manager functionality. Although you
cannot use the SMA software to start Storage Area Manager, the SMA interface provides
access to some Storage Area Manager features, described below.
When Storage Area Manager is installed, an application icon and description appear on the
SMA Tools page, as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1: Storage Management Appliance Tools page
Clicking the Storage Area Manager icon connects you to the Storage Area Manager GUI
downloads page. The GUI downloads page is a feature of Storage Area Manager that lets you
download client and Manager of Managers software, as well as specify authentication
information.
8
Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes
Storage Area Manager and SMA Implementation
You can also connect to the Storage Area Manager GUI downloads page using the Configure
button on the SMA Manage Tools page, as shown in Figure 2.
Figure 2: Storage Management Appliance Manage Tools page
In addition, you can use the Manage Tools page to stop and start local Storage Area Manager
services. This feature provides a convenient method for completely stopping or starting all
services associated with the Storage Area Manager server.
Event Notification
Storage Area Manager and the SMA both have functionality for notifying users when an event
occurs within the SAN. Both can distinguish the severity of SAN events, and both provide
various methods for notifying a designated individual. When Storage Area Manager is
installed on the SMA, these notification systems work independently of each other and
without conflicts. SMA core events (for example, an SMA shutdown) and audit events (for
example, users logging on to the SMA) are not received by Storage Area Manager.
Refer to the Storage Area Manager or the SMA documentation for instructions on setting up
event notification.
Licensing
Storage Area Manager and the SMA use different licensing models that function
independently of each other.
When you install Storage Area Manager, you get a 60-day instant on license for the entire
Storage Area Manager suite. After the 60-day instant on license expires, only those
applications that have permanent licenses will continue to operate. You must acquire
permanent licenses if you want to use any of the remaining applications in the Storage Area
Manager suite. When you need to add licenses, use the Storage Area Manager software, not
the SMA software.
Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes

Storage Area Manager and SMA Implementation
Security
Storage Area Manager and the SMA software have their own independent security
infrastructures. Storage Area Manager uses two levels of user authentication: Administrators
and Guests. The SMA has three levels: Administrators, Operators, and Users. To access both
Storage Area Manager and SMA, you need to log on to each application separately.
Databases
Storage Area Manager and the SMA store data in separate databases. Data cannot be migrated
between the SMA and Storage Area Manager databases.
Discovery
Both Storage Area Manager and the SMA software can be used to perform discoveries. The
discovery operations and end results are independent of each other. Therefore, to utilize the
features of either Storage Area Manager or the SMA, you need to perform separate
discoveries.
Performing a comprehensive Storage Area Manager discovery in a large configuration has
been found to negatively affect SMA system response time. See “Performance
Considerations” for more information.
Performance Considerations
In larger configurations, a comprehensive Storage Area Manager discovery can consume
almost all SMA system resources and take a long time to reach completion. A comprehensive
Storage Area Manager discovery also slows down SMA operations, such as running a
discovery in Storage Provisioner or accessing the element managers.
Degraded performance is not as apparent in smaller environments when running concurrent
Storage Area Manager and SMA operations. You can perform a comprehensive Storage Area
Manager discovery without consuming excessive SMA resources.
Compatibility Between Storage Area Manager and SMA Components
The applications in the Storage Area Manager suite—Storage Node Manager, Storage Builder,
Storage Optimizer, Storage Accountant, and Storage Allocater—are compatible with all of the
SMA core components, as well as with other applications that can reside on the SMA,
according to the following table:

See exceptions in “Compatibility Between Storage Allocater and Storage Provisioner.”
Network View and Storage Allocation Reporter are not supported when Storage Area Manager
is installed on the SMA.
Compatibility Between Storage Allocater and Storage Provisioner
HP OpenView Storage Allocater is an allocation product in the Storage Area Manager suite.
Storage Allocater's main focus is to provide host-based, logical unit security management for
the SAN. It provides the ability to allocate and deallocate storage to or from a host.
HP OpenView Storage Provisioner is a provisioning application that can optionally be
installed on the SMA. This software manages both HSG- and HSV-based storage subsystems.
Storage Provisioner allows storage providers to manage storage as a utility, customize service
levels, and grant consumers self-service access to storage via quotas. Storage Provisioner also
creates usage reports to support billing for both storage providers and consumers.
It is possible to have both of these products installed on the SMA with no technical problems.
However, if you use both products simultaneously, conflicts and data corruption can occur if
they attempt to allocate the same storage.
For example, you can assign a LUN to a host using Storage Allocater. However, if you then
use Storage Provisioner, the LUN appears to be available and Storage Provisioner could
reassign the same LUN, causing information to be overwritten.
Caution: HP recommends, as a best practice, that you use either Storage Allocater or
Storage Provisioner, but not both, for storage provisioning. If you choose to use both, ensure
that the two applications do not attempt to manage the same host and storage resource.
Otherwise, data corruption can occur.

Installing and Uninstalling Storage Area Manager on the SMA
6. Following the instructions in the HP OpenView Storage Area Manager Installation Guide,
continue with Storage Area Manager installation (server, clients, and SAN hosts) until it is
complete.
Note: You can install the Storage Area Manager host agent software on an SMA running software
version 2.1. The host agent on the SMA does not monitor and manage storage because the SMA is
not directly attached to storage devices. However, installing the host agent on the SMA allows
Storage Area Manager to recognize the SMA as a known system in the SAN.
HP does not support installing the Storage Area Manager host agent software on the SMA if you are
running software version 2.0.
7. Disconnect the monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse.

Performing Backup and Restore Operations
Storage Area Manager and the Storage Management Appliance have separate backup
operations and databases.
Storage Area Manager Backup
By default, Storage Area Manager backups occur at 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. You can
manually back up the Storage Area Manager database by connecting to the Storage
Management Appliance, using either Terminal Services or an attached monitor, keyboard, and
mouse, and running the following command:
“C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\managementserver\sbin\
backupdb.cmd”
If Storage Area Manager is installed in a different directory, change the path accordingly.
Refer to the Storage Area Manager documentation for complete information on backups.

Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes
SMA Configuration Guidelines
Storage Management Appliance Backup
Because Storage Area Manager and the SMA maintain separate databases, a backup of the
SMA will not normally include the Storage Area Manager backup data. If you want to include
the Storage Area Manager backed-up data in an SMA backup, you must take special steps as
described in “Configuring the SMA to Back Up Storage Area Manager.”
Configuring the SMA to Back Up Storage Area Manager
To include the Storage Area Manager backed-up data in an SMA backup, you must include the
Storage Area Manager backup database path in the SMA backup configuration file,
osmbackup.conf. The procedures for Storage Area Manager v3.0 and v3.1 are described below
with examples. If you accepted all of the default settings during installation of Storage Area
Manager, the examples are accurate for your configuration.
■
Storage Area Manager v3.0 backup configuration, below
■
Storage Area Manager v3.1 backup configuration, page 23
Storage Area Manager v3.0 backup configuration
To configure the SMA to include Storage Area Manager v3.0 backups:
1. Connect to the SMA, either through Terminal Services or by attaching a monitor,
keyboard, and mouse.
2. Use Notepad or another text editor to open the file, sanmgr.ini, which resides on the SMA
(for example, C:\WINNT\sanmgr.ini).
3. Find the ManagementRoot entry in the sanmgr.ini file to determine the Storage Area
Manager installation directory path.
In the example below, the installation directory path is
C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\.
[CheckResult]
TotalPhysicalMemory=0402046976
FileSystemType=NTFS
AcrobatReader=AcroExch.Document
ProcessorSpeed=0731
[Setup]
ManagementRoot=C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\
SourceRoot=\\SILCCRLS\RELEASE\SRM_REL\VERSI~A!\CDIMAGE\SAM30-MR\
hpovsam\
ProductCode={DB3CBE6B-0715-4214-900F-D6AAA7016C98}
ProductVersion=03.00.0307.0002
4. Open the file, solid.ini, located in the managementserver\db installation directory.
For example:
C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\managementserver\db\solid.ini
Using Storage Area Manager on the Storage Management Appliance Application Notes
21
SMA Configuration Guidelines
5. Find the BackupDirectory entry in solid.ini to determine the Storage Area Manager
backup directory path.
In the example below, the backup directory path is backup, which can be either a relative
path to the database directory or an absolute path.
[General]
;*** BACKUP LOCATION ***
;
;There is no default location for backups. The backup directory can be
;given also as parameter to administration command 'backup'.
;It is recommended to store the backups on a separate physical drive than
;where the database files reside.
;Replace '<default_backup_path>' above with the actual directory, where
;backup files should be stored when 'backup' is started without
;parameters.
BackupDirectory=backup
6. Make backup an absolute path (if it is relative) by appending the relative path to the
database path.
For example:
C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\managementserver\db\backup
7. Use Notepad or another text editor to open the SMA configuration file, osmbackup.conf
(for example, C:\Program Files\Compaq\SANworks\OSM\osmbackup.conf).
This file begins with the following notation:
# backup configuration file
#
# app <appname>
.
.
.
8. Go to the end of osmbackup.conf and add the following lines:
app sam
sam dirtree absolute path of SAM BackupDirectory
Provide the absolute path specified in step 6. For example, assuming you accepted all the
defaults during installation, the text you enter is as follows:
app sam
sam dirtree C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\
managementserver\db\backup
9. Save the osmbackup.conf file.
10. Disconnect the monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse, if used.

SMA Configuration Guidelines
Storage Area Manager v3.1 backup configuration
When using Storage Area Manager v3.1, the osmbackup.conf file needs modification only if
you changed the location of the Storage Area Manager backup directory or if you did not
accept all of the default settings during Storage Area Manager installation.
To configure the SMA to include Storage Area Manager v3.1 backups:
1. Connect to the SMA, either through Terminal Services or by attaching a monitor,
keyboard, and mouse.
2. Use Notepad or another text editor to open the SMA configuration file, osmbackup.conf
(for example, C:\Program Files\Compaq\SANworks\OSM\osmbackup.conf).
This file begins with the following notation:
# backup configuration file
#
# app <appname>
.
.
.
3. Go to the end of osmbackup.conf and change the following line:
“Storage Area Manager” dirtree “SAM Backup”
so that it reads as follows:
“Storage Area Manager” dirtree “C:\program files\
Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\managementserver\db\backup”
4. Save the osmbackup.conf file.
5. Disconnect the monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse, if used.
After you update osmbackup.conf with the Storage Area Manager backup path information,
HP recommends that you back up the file to a network share. Provide the location of the
backed-up file to an SMA Administrator, to be used, if necessary, to recover a failed SMA.
Backing Up the Storage Management Appliance
After completing the procedures in “Configuring the SMA to Back Up Storage Area Manager”
on page 21 you can back up the SMA database and files. Refer to the SMA online help for
complete instructions.
As part of this operation, the SMA also backs up the Storage Area Manager backed-up data
files.
Note: You are not able to perform any Storage Area Manager activities at this time because the
SMA stops Storage Area Manager services during the backup. The SMA automatically restarts
services after the backup is completed.

SMA Configuration Guidelines
Restoring the Storage Management Appliance
If you need to restore the SMA database and files, refer to the SMA online help for complete
instructions.
As part of the restore operation, the SMA restores the Storage Area Manager backup files to
the Storage Area Manager backup directory. To complete the Storage Area Manager restore
process, see “Restoring Storage Area Manager.”
Note: You are not able to perform any Storage Area Manager activities at this time because the
SMA stops Storage Area Manager services during the restore. The SMA automatically restarts
services after the restore is completed.
Restoring Storage Area Manager
To restore the Storage Area Manager database, you must complete a manual process.
1. Connect to the SMA, either through Terminal Services or by attaching a monitor,
keyboard, and mouse.
2. Run the following command:
“C:\program files\Hewlett-Packard\sanmgr\managementserver\sbin\
restoredb.cmd”
This command assumes that Storage Area Manager is installed in the default location. If it
is installed in a different directory, change the path accordingly.
3. Disconnect the monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse, if used.

SMA Configuration Guidelines
Using Storage Area Manager in a Dual-Redundant Fabric Configuration
Storage Management Appliances are often deployed in dual-redundant Fibre Channel
environments.
The Storage Area Manager software is compatible with dual redundancy.
Using dual-redundant Fibre Channel paths for storage management enables the SMA to have
redundant control over the SAN, creating an environment with no single point of failure. In
such a configuration, the SMA has two host bus adapters (HBAs), allowing greater ability to
provide nonstop management control and monitoring of critical SAN devices.
Figure 4 shows two fabrics with fiber connections between the SMA, a host, switches, and
storage devices, including:
■
The SMA with two host bus adapters
■
A storage host system on which you install the Storage Area Manager host agent software
■
An HSG controller pair connected to the fabric through Ports 1 and 2 (top controller) and
Ports 1 and 2 (bottom controller)
■
An HSV controller pair connected to the fabric through Fabric Ports 1 and 2 (top
controller) and Fabric Ports 1 and 2 (bottom controller)

SMA Configuration Guidelines
Storage Area Manager can be successfully installed on the SMA in a dual-redundant
environment. However, the Storage Area Manager discovery process might show
dual-redundant configurations as two separate SANs, even though there is only one. In this
event, Storage Area Manager incorrectly displays duplicate SAN maps with discovered
devices in one SAN, but not the other. If necessary, you can resolve the error using the
following procedure:
1. Delete the devices listed in the Unknown Devices tree in the second SAN map displayed
by Storage Area Manager.
2. Run another discovery operation.
After performing the second discovery, Storage Area Manager will correctly display a
single SAN.
Using Modular Data Routers with the SMA
If you have Modular Data Routers (MDRs) in your SAN, you need to install the Modular Data
Router DPI to communicate with Storage Area Manager. You also need to install the HP
StorageWorks Command Console for Tape Controller Management Element Manager on the
Storage Area Manager server. However, Tape Controller Management (TCM) is not
compatible with other software on the Storage Management Appliance and should not be
installed on the SMA. Instead, it must be installed on some other Windows 2000 or
Windows NT system. This Windows system does not need to be in the SAN, but needs to have
IP connectivity to the SMA and MDRs in the SAN.
After installing the TCM Element Manager on the Windows host, use the Storage Area
Manager application link feature (Tools > Storage Node Manager > Edit Application Link)
to change the URL that launches TCM.
Refer to the HP StorageWorks Modular Data Router Device Plug-In Installation Instructions
and the release notes included with the Modular Data Router DPI for complete details.
To enable the MDR page to launch from Storage Area Manager after you install TCM on the
Windows host, you must allow anonymous access to unsecured pages in the System
Management Home Page. Use the following procedure:
1. Log on using the administrator account on the System Management Home Page
(http://ip_addr:2301/), where ip_addr is the IP address of the Windows system where
TCM is installed. The default password is administrator.
2. Click the Options link. (On some versions of the System Management Home Page, click
the Settings tab and then click Options.)
3. Select Anonymous Access and save the settings.
The Modular Data Router DPI and supporting documentation are available at
http://www.openview.hp.com/products/dpi/index.html.
