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.

Changing IP Addresses of Management Network Ports Using DeviceManager

Changing IP Addresses of Management Network Ports Using DeviceManager

Changing IP addresses of management network ports using DeviceManager is a widely used way to connect the management network ports to user networks during system initialization.

Prerequisites

A temporary maintenance terminal used for initial configuration has been connected to the management network port of the storage device.

The IP address of the maintenance terminal and the default IP address of the management network port are on the same network segment.

Context

  • (Applicable to V300R003C00/V300R003C10) For a 2 U controller enclosure (5300 V3/5500 V3), the default IP addresses of the management network ports on controllers A and B are respectively 192.168.128.101 and 192.168.128.102, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. For a 3 U or 6 U controller enclosure (5600 V3/5800 V3/6800 V3), the default IP addresses of the management network ports on management modules 0 and 1 are respectively 192.168.128.101 and 192.168.128.102, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0.
  • (Applicable to V300R003C20) For a 2 U controller enclosure (5300 V3/5500 V3), the default IP addresses of the management network ports on controllers A and B are respectively 192.168.128.101 and 192.168.128.102, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0. For a 3 U or 6 U controller enclosure (5600 V3/5800 V3/6800 V3), the default IP addresses of the management network ports on management modules 0 and 1 are respectively 192.168.128.101 and 192.168.128.102, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0.
  • The default internal heartbeat IP addresses are 127.127.127.10 and 127.127.127.11 for a dual-controller storage system, and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0. The default internal heartbeat IP addresses are 127.127.127.10, 127.127.127.11, 127.127.127.12, and 127.127.127.13 for a four-controller storage system, and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0.
  • The default IP address of the maintenance network port is 172.31.128.101 or 172.31.128.102, and the subnet mask is 255.255.0.0.

Precaution

  • After you change the IP addresses of the management network ports, communication between the maintenance terminal and the storage device is interrupted. Therefore, you are advised to first change the IP addresses of the controllers' management network ports that are not directly connected to the maintenance terminal.
  • The IP addresses of management network ports and internal heartbeat IP addresses must be on different network segments. For a dual-controller system, you cannot assign IP addresses that belong to the 127.127.127.XXX network segment. For a four-controller storage system, you cannot assign IP addresses that belong to the 127.127.127.XXX, 172.16.126.XXX, 172.16.127.XXX, and 172.16.128.XXX network segments.
    NOTE:
    • Heartbeats are packets transmitted between two devices that do not require acknowledgement and allow the device to judge the validity status of the peer device. The heartbeat function supports node communication, fault diagnosis, and event triggering.
    • 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. Internal heartbeat IP addresses are assigned before delivery and cannot be changed.
  • The IP addresses of management network ports and those of maintenance network ports must be on different network segments. You cannot use IP addresses that belong to 172.31.XXX.XXX as the default IP addresses of management network ports and maintenance network ports. Otherwise, route conflicts may occur. For this reason, connect only the management network ports to the network.
  • By default, the IP addresses of management network ports and those of service network ports are on different network segments. You can run the change port eth_network_segment switch=on command to allow the IP addresses to reside on the same network segment. For details, see OceanStor 5300 V3&5500 V3&5600 V3&5800 V3&6800 V3 Storage System V300R003 Restricted Command Reference.
    NOTE:

    This operation may cause services that proactively connect to external servers unavailable. Such services include SNMP, syslog, email, FTP, AD, NIS, LDAP, and DNS.

Procedure

  1. Change the IP address of the temporary maintenance terminal used for initial configuration to one on the 192.168.XXX.XXX network segment.
  2. Log in to DeviceManager.
  3. Choose System.
  4. Select the controller enclosure where the management network port resides.
  5. Click to switch to the rear view.
  6. Click the management network port whose information you want to view.

    After you change the IP addresses of the management network ports, communication between the maintenance terminal and the storage device is interrupted. Therefore, you are advised to first change the IP addresses of the controllers' management network ports that are not directly connected to the maintenance terminal.

    The Management Port dialog box is displayed.

  7. Change the IP address of the management network port.
    1. Click Modify.



    2. In the IPv4 Address or IPv6 Address text box, enter an IP address for the management network port.
    3. In the Subnet Mask or Prefix text box, enter the subnet mask or prefix of the management network port.
    4. In the IPv4 Gateway or IPv6 Gateway text box, enter a gateway of the IP address for the management network port.
  8. Confirm the new IP address of the management network port.
    1. Click Apply.

      The security alert dialog box is displayed.

    2. Confirm the information in the dialog box and select I have read and understand the consequences associated with performing this operation.
    3. Click OK.

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

    4. Click OK.
  9. Perform 4 to 8 again to change the IP addresses of the other management network ports.
