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 Routes

Managing Routes

If cross-segment data transmission is required in an iSCSI network, this operation guides you to configure routes, enabling cross-segment data transmission.


The IP address of an Ethernet port has been configured.


On redundant links, you must configure IP addresses and route for multiple Ethernet ports.


  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose System.
  3. Select the controller enclosure where the Ethernet ports reside.
  4. Click to switch to the rear view.
  5. Click the Ethernet port that you want to configure.
  6. Click Route Management.

    The Route Management dialog box is displayed.

  7. Set route information for the Ethernet port.

    • The default internal heartbeat IP addresses of a dual-controller storage system are and, and those of a four-controller storage system are,,, and Therefore, the IP address of the router cannot fall within the 127.127.127.XXX segment. Additionally, the IP address of the gateway cannot be,,, or Otherwise, routing will fail.
    • Internal heartbeat links are established between controllers for the controllers to detect each other's working status. Heartbeat links do not require separate cable connections. In addition, internal heartbeat IP addresses have been assigned before delivery and cannot be changed.

    1. In IP Address, select the IP address of the Ethernet port.
    2. Click Add.

      The Add Route dialog box is displayed.

    3. In the text box of Type, select the type of the route to be added and the route parameters. Table 2-3 describes related parameters.

      Table 2-3  Route parameters




      There are three route options:

      • Default route

        The route through which data is forwarded by default if no preferred route is available. The destination address field and the destination mask field (IPv4) or prefix (IPv6) of the default route are automatically set to 0. To use this option, simply add a gateway.

      • Host route

        A route to an individual host. The destination mask (IPv4) or prefix (IPv6) of the host route is automatically set to or 128. To use this option, add the destination address and a gateway.

      • Network segment route

        The route to a network segment. To use this option, add the destination address, the destination address mask (IPv4) or prefix (IPv6), and gateway.

      Destination address

      The IPv4 address, IPv6 address, or network segment of the application server's service network port or the IPv4 address, IPv6 address, or network segment of the storage device's Ethernet port.

      Destination mask/Prefix

      Subnet mask of the IPv4 address or the prefix of the IPv6 address for the storage device's Ethernet port or the application server's service network port that connects to the storage device's Ethernet port.


      Gateway where the IP address of the Ethernet port on the local storage system resides.

  8. Confirm the route management operation.
    1. Click OK. The route information is added to the route list.

      The security alert dialog box is displayed.

    2. Confirm the information in the dialog box and select I have read the previous information and understand subsequences of the operation..
    3. Click OK.

      The Success dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation succeeded.


      To delete a route, select the route and click Remove.

    4. Click Close.
