Issue Description
FusionCube V100R002C01,During FusionCube software initialization in the bare device installation scenario, a message is displayed, indicating that storage resources fail to be associated with hosts. 
Alarm Information
 storage resources fail to be associated with hosts
Handling Process
1. Analyzed the FusionCube installing process,  we found it need to configure the time clock after FusionCompute is installed in the FusionCube bare device installation scenario.

2.No time clock is configured during FusionCube software initialization in the bare device installation scenario, the FusionCube system can only connect to the IP address 192.168.14.0 (emergency channel). As a result, you cannot log in to the FusionCompute portal. Therefore, only the following method can be used to rectify the failure. See the steps in the solution as bellow.
Root Cause
During FusionCube software initialization, storage resources need to be associated with hosts. During the resource association process, the FusionCube system synchronizes time clock information from the FusionCompute database to the FusionManager database. Therefore, a time clock must be configured before FusionCube software initialization and after FusionCompute installation.

If no time clock is configured during FusionCube software initialization in the bare device installation scenario, no data is available during the synchronization process. Therefore, storage resources fail to be associated with hosts.
Solution
1.  Log in to the FusionManager portal and choose System > Time Management.
2.  Change the value of Time synchronization interval in the Time Synchronization area to make it different from the current value, and click Save.
3.  Change the value of Time synchronization interval again based on site requirements.
4.  Change the value of City in the Time Zone area to make it different from the current value, and click Save.
5.  Change the value of City again based on site requirements.
6.  Perform software initialization again.
Suggestions
Operate strictly according to the product documentation.
