Lefthand San Serial Number

  



HPE Insight Remote Support software delivers secure remote support for your HPE servers, storage, network, and SAN environments, which includes the P4000 SAN.

SERIAL NUMBER and GROUP LISTS for 18- and 32-subject printings through Series 2009 version 2.2.16 2 February 2020. In the Protocol drop-down list, select P4000 SAN Solution (SAN/iQ). Type the Username and Password for the Management Group created in Configuring SNMP on the P4000 Storage System. These credentials can be either full LeftHand OS management group or read-only LeftHand OS management group credentials. Login to SAN switch through PuTTY and run the command chassisshow to see the serial number of the SAN switch. Swd77:admin chassisshow CHASSIS/WWN Unit: 1 Header. In 2008, Rolex stopped engraving the serial number at the case 6 o’clock location, using only the serial engraving on the rehaut. By 2010, this had come to become the case for all Rolex models. The serial number of modern Rolex watches don’t have the serial number between the 6 o clock side between the lugs, but only on the inner rehaut. Under federal law, a gun manufacturer or importer must engrave or mark every gun it makes with a serial number on the receiver or frame. Law enforcement agents can use the number to determine the owner of the gun or learn if it was reported stolen, but a private individual cannot.

Note: HPE StoreVirtual Storage is the new name for HPE LeftHand Storage and HPE P4000 SAN solutions. LeftHand Operating System (LeftHand OS) is the new name for SAN/iQ.

Important: Each P4000 Storage Node counts as 30 monitored devices within Insight RS.

Important: For every 100 P4000 devices being monitored by Insight RS, add 1 GB of free disk space to the Hosting Device requirements.

P4000 documentation is available at: www.hpe.com/support/hpesc. Search for LeftHand P4000 SAN Solutions.

To configure your P4000 Storage Systems to be monitored by Insight RS, complete the following sections:

Install and configure communication software on storage systems

To configure your monitored devices, complete the following sections:

You need to do the complete install of Centralized Management Console (CMC) to install the SNMP MIBs. If you do not modify the SNMP defaults that CMC uses, then SNMP should work with Insight Remote Support without modification.

Insight RS supports CMC 9.0 and higher (CMC 11.0 is recommended).

CMC 11.0 can be used to manage LeftHand OS 9.5, 10.x, 11.0, and 12.5 storage nodes.

CMC, Windows version has the following requirements:

Memory and storage requirements for CMC
Memory sizeFree disk space
100 MB RAM during run-time150 MB disk space for complete install

Note: CMC can be installed on the Hosting Device or it can be install on a separate system. If CMC is already installed on another system, it does not need to be installed on the Hosting Device.

Install the centralized management console (CMC) on the computer that you will use to administer the SAN. You need administrator privileges while installing the CMC.

  1. Insert the P4000 Management SW DVD in the DVD drive. The installer should launch automatically. Or, navigate to the executable (:GUIWindowsDisk1InstDataVMCMC_Installer.exe)

    Or download CMC at: h20392.www2.hpe.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=StoreVirtualSW.

    Click the Complete install option, which is recommended for users that use SNMP.

    Note: If you already have Service Console installed, you don't need to disable it. Insight Remote Support can co-exist with Service Console without conflict.

  2. Use the Find Nodes wizard to discover the storage systems on the network, using either IP addresses or host names, or by using the subnet and gateway mask of the storage network.

    The found storage systems appear in the available category in the CMC.

Note: LeftHand Operating System (LeftHand OS) is the new name for SAN/iQ.

Use CMC to upgrade to LeftHand OS 9.5 or higher (LeftHand OS 11.0 is recommended) on the P4000 Storage Systems. If your P4000 Storage Systems already has LeftHand OS 9.5 installed, you do not need to perform this procedure.

Note: For LeftHand OS 9.5 devices, Patch Set 05 is required for all devices.

CMC version 9.0 and higher provide the option to download LeftHand OS upgrades and patches from HPE. Once the current upgrades and patches are downloaded from HPE to the CMC system, CMC can be used to update Management Groups or nodes with these changes.

When you upgrade the LeftHand OS software on a storage node, the version number changes. Check the current software version by selecting a storage node in the navigation window and viewing the Details tab window.

Note: Directly upgrading from LeftHand OS 9.5 to LeftHand OS 12.5 is not supported.

Important: When installing/upgrading LeftHand OS, do not modify the default SNMP settings. The default settings are used by Insight Remote Support, and communication between the P4000 Storage System and the Hosting Device will not function properly if the SNMP settings are modified. SNMP is enabled by default in LeftHand OS. In CMC 9.0 and higher, SNMP traps are modified at the Management Group level, not at the node level.

Understand best practices

  • LSMD upgrade — LSMD upgrade is required for upgrading from LeftHand OS 7.x.

  • Virtual IP addresses — If a Virtual IP (VIP) address is assigned to a storage node in a cluster, the VIP storage node needs to be upgraded last. The VIP storage node appears on the cluster iSCSI tab, see figure 'Find the Storage Node Running the VIP'.

    1. Upgrade the non-VIP storage nodes that are running managers, one at a time.
    2. Upgrade the non-VIP non-manager storage nodes.
    3. Upgrade the VIP storage node.

      Find the Storage Node Running the VIP

  • Remote Copy — If you are upgrading management groups with Remote Copy associations, you should upgrade the remote management groups first. If you upgrade the primary group first, Remote Copy may stop working temporarily, until both the primary management group and the remote group have finished upgrading. Upgrade the primary site immediately after upgrading the remote site. Refer to 'How to Verify Management Group Version'.

Select the type of upgrade

CMC supports two methods of upgrades, as shown in figure 'Viewing the CMC Upgrade/Installation Window'.

  • One-at-a-time (recommended) - this is the default and only method that should be used if the storage nodes exist in a management group.

  • Simultaneous (advanced) - this allows you to upgrade multiple storage nodes at the same time if they are not in a management group. Use this only for storage nodes in the Available pool.

Caution: Do not select 'Simultaneous (advanced)' if your storage nodes are in a production cluster.

Increase the size of the OS disk on the VSAs

Due to changes in the size of the VMware tools that get installed during software upgrades from pre-8.5 versions of LeftHand OS, you must increase the size of the OS disk before upgrading the VSA. Additional space requirements are necessary for future software releases, as well. Therefore, we recommend increasing the size of the OS disk to accommodate both requirements at this time.

Serial Number Idm

Note: These instructions apply to VMware ESX Server. Other VMware products have similar instructions for extending a virtual disk. Please consult the appropriate VMware documentation for the product you are using.

To increase the OS disk size on the VSA, complete the following steps:

  1. Using the CMC, power off the VSA.

  2. Open the VI Client and select VSAEdit SettingsHardware.

  3. Select Hard disk 1 (verify that the Virtual Device Node is SCSI (0:0)).

  4. Under Disk provisioning, changed the provisioned size to 8 GB.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Repeat these steps for Hard disk 2 (verify the Virtual Device Node is SCSI (0:1))

  7. Using the VI Client, power on the VSA.

  8. Find the VSA in the CMC and apply the upgrade.

Verify management group version

  • When upgrading from version LeftHand OS 7.x to release 9.5 or higher, the management group version will not move to the new release version until all storage nodes in the management group (and in the remote management group if a Remote Copy relationship exists) are upgraded to release LeftHand OS 9.5 or higher.

  • When upgrading from LeftHand OS version 7.x to release 9.5 or higher, the upgrade process validates the hardware identity of all of the storage nodes in the management group. If this validation fails for any reason, the management group version will not be upgraded to 9.5 or higher. For example, if a management group has a mix of platforms, some of which are unsupported by a software release; then only the supported platforms get upgraded successfully, the management group version will not be upgraded if the unsupported platforms remain in that management group.

To verify the management group version, complete the following steps:

  1. In the CMC navigation window, select the management group, and then select the Registration tab. The management group version number is at the top of the Registration Information section, as shown in figure Verifying the management group version number.

Verifying the management group version number

Check for patches

After you have upgraded LeftHand OS, use CMC to check for applicable patches required for your storage node. CMC 9.0 and higher shows available patches and can be used to download them from HPE to the CMC system.

Use the following procedure to verify your SNMP settings. If you did not modify the LeftHand OS SNMP settings when you installed/upgraded LeftHand OS then you should not need to make any updates during the following procedure.

With LeftHand OS, you can configure different severity Alert levels to send from the Management Group. Under Insight Remote Support, configure each Management Group to send v1 SNMP traps of Critical and Warning levels in Standard message text length.

LeftHand OS 9.5 and higher Management Groups configure the Hosting Device SNMP trap host destination once at the Management Group level. Even though you only configure SNMP once at the Management Group level under CMC 10.0 and higher, you need to configure SNMP on the Hosting Device to allow traps from all LeftHand OS nodes.

Note: For LeftHand OS Management Groups, users can configure the Hosting Device trap host destination P4000 CLI createSNMPTrapTarget command instead of using CMC. The getGroupInfo command will show the current SNMP settings and SNMP trap host destinations configured at the Management Group level.

Note: If using the P4000 CLI (CLIQ) createSNMPTrapTarget or getGroupInfo commands, the path environment variable is not updated when the P4000 CLI is installed with Insight RS. You will need to use the full path for the P4000 CLI, which is [InsightRS_Installation_Folder]P4000.

To verify and/or update your SNMP settings, complete the following steps:

  1. Open CMC.

  2. Verify that SNMP is enabled for each storage system:

    Note: LeftHand OS ships by default with SNMP enabled for all storage systems and configured with the 'Default' Access Control list.

    Note: LeftHand OS Management Groups configure the Hosting Device SNMP trap host destination once at the Management Group level. With LeftHand OS, you can configure different severity Alert levels to send from the Management Group. Under Insight Remote Support, configure each Management Group to send v1 SNMP traps of Critical and Warning levels in Standard message text length.

    1. Select SNMP in the left menu tree and open the SNMP General tab.

    2. Verify that the Agent Status is enabled.

    3. Verify that the P4000 Storage System SNMP Community String is set to public or the same value configured in the Insight RS Console for SNMP discovery.

    4. In the Access Control field, verify that either Default is listed or the Hosting Device host IP address is listed. The Default option configures SNMP to be accessed by the public community string for all IP addresses.

      Note: The SNMP settings on the P4000 Storage Systems need to match the SNMP settings on the Hosting Device.

  3. Select Alerts in the left menu tree, and verify that alerts are configured with the 'trap' option for each storage system.

    Note: LeftHand OS ships by default with traps set for all alert cases.

  4. Add the Hosting Device IP address to the P4000 Storage System's SNMP trap send list. The Hosting Device IP address is needed to configure SNMP traps on each storage system. Note that in CMC 9.0 and higher, SNMP traps are configured at the Management Group level, not at the node level.

    1. Select SNMP in the left menu tree and open the SNMP Traps tab.

    2. Open the Edit SNMP Traps dialog by browsing to SNMP Trap TasksEdit SNMP Traps.

    3. In the Edit SNMP Traps dialog, click Add.

    4. In the Add IP or Hostname dialog, type the IP address or host name into the IP or Hostname field. Verify that the Trap Version is v1, and click OK.

  5. Repeat steps 3 to 4 for each P4000 Storage System. Alternatively, you could also configure one node using steps 3 to 4, then use the CMC copy node configuration option to copy the configuration to all other nodes.
  6. Add an additional CMC user with read-only credentials. This is recommended if you don't want to have the Hosting Device system administrator to have create/delete control of the storage systems.

    1. Select Administration in the left menu tree.

    2. Create a user group with read-only access, if one does not already exist. Browse to Administrative TasksNew Group.

    3. Create a new user. First select the group you created in the previous step, then go to Administrative TasksNew User. Type the User Name, Password, and click Add to add this user to the read-only user group you created.

      Note: When discovering new P4000 devices, do not include any P4000 Management Group Virtual IP (VIP) addresses. VIP addresses are created when you create and configure P4000 clusters. Instead, discover P4000 devices using individual IP addresses, or create IP discovery ranges excluding all P4000 VIP addresses.

      If you do discover a P4000 VIP address, you should delete the managed entity for the VIP address from Insight Remote Support Advanced before running any collections or capturing any test traps. After deleting the VIP address entity, re-discover the node using the actual IP address for the P4000 device.

    4. Click Add.
  4. Click Start Discovery.

    Note: Insight RS filters out iLO 4 but not iLO 2 or iLO 3 devices. If an iLO 2 or iLO 3 device is discovered, manually deleted them on the Device Details screen.
