OceanStor 5300 V3, 5500 V3, 5600 V3, 5800 V3, and 6800 V3 Storage System V300R003

Routine maintenance activities are the most common activities for the storage device, including powering on or off the storage device, managing users, modifying basic parameters of the storage device, and managing hardware components. This document applies to the system administrators who are responsible for carrying out routine maintenance activities, monitoring the storage device, and rectifying common device faults.

Managing Ports

Managing Ports

This section describes common operations to manage ports including creation, modification and deletion, and precautions for performing the operations.

Table B-11 lists common operations to manage ports.

Operation

Scenario

Description

Add

Add a port to a port group or a failover group.

A member port of System or VLAN cannot be added.

View

View details about ports, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, and IB ports.

Modify

When the network changes, modify port parameters to ensure that the storage system communicates correctly with application servers.

Note the following when modifying the properties of an Ethernet port:
  • Changing the IP address of the Ethernet port interrupts the ongoing services. Check whether a redundant path exists between the storage system and host. If there is no redundant path, stop the services on the host. Do not change the IP address of the Ethernet port unless necessary.
  • The IP addresses of the Ethernet port and heartbeat network port must be on different network segments. Default IP addresses of internal heartbeats are 127.127.127.10 and 127.127.127.11. (Internal heartbeat links are established between or among controllers of a storage system for detecting controller status without separate cabling. IP addresses of internal heartbeats are set before the storage system is delivered and cannot be changed by users.)
  • The IP addresses of the Ethernet port and management network port must be on different network segments.
  • The IP addresses of the Ethernet port and maintenance network port must be on different network segments.
  • The IP address of the Ethernet port must be on the same network segment as that of its connected service network port on the application server or that of its connected Ethernet port on another storage system. If the network segment has insufficient available IP addresses, add a route.

Delete

If a port group, bond port, logical port, or VLAN is no longer used, delete it.

-

Remove

Remove a port from a port group or a failover group.

A member port of System or VLAN cannot be removed.

Bond

To increase link redundancy of Ethernet ports, bond the ports.

  • Ethernet ports belonging to the same controller can be bonded.
  • A maximum of eight member ports can be bonded.

Activate

After a logical port is created, activate it to manage and access NAS through it.
