Logging In to the DeviceManager (Through Web)

Logging In to the DeviceManager (Through Web)

The DeviceManager is a device management program developed by Huawei. The DeviceManager has been loaded to the storage system before delivery. You can log in to the DeviceManager on any maintenance terminal connected to the storage system by using the IP address of the storage system's management network port and the local or domain user name in a browser.

Prerequisites

  • Operating system and browser versions of the maintenance terminal.

    NOTE:
    DeviceManager supports multiple operating systems and browsers. However, the partially compatible browsers and browsers that have a later version than those listed in the table may not provide guaranteed ease-of-use experience.
  • The maintenance terminal communicates with the storage system properly.
  • The super administrator can log in to the storage system using the Local user authentication mode only.
  • To use a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) domain user account to log in to the DeviceManager, you must configure the LDAP server first, then set the LDAP server parameters and create an LDAP user account on the DeviceManager.
  • By default, DeviceManager allows 32 users to log in concurrently.

Context

  • DeviceManager only supports TSL protocols (including TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2).
    NOTE:
    The super administrator can run change devicemanager tls min_version=? to change the earliest version of TLS supported by DeviceManager. Then, the super administrator must run reboot storage service service_name=devicemanager to restart DeviceManager for the change to take effect.
  • (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 user name and password of the super administrator are admin and Admin@storage.
  • This document uses the Windows operating system as an example to explain how to log in to the DeviceManager. The login operations on other operating systems need to be adjusted accordingly.
  • If a user does not perform any operations after logging in to the system for a period longer than the timeout limit (the limit is 30 minutes by default and modifiable), the system logs out automatically.
  • If an account is not used to log in to the system for a certain period of time (the period is 60 days by default and modifiable), it will be locked and can only be unlocked by the super administrator.

Procedure

  1. Run Internet Explorer on the maintenance terminal.
  2. In the address box, type https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8088 and press Enter.

    NOTE:
    • XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX represents the management network port IP address of the storage system.
    • In an environment with the firewall function, when the system externally provides web services, you need to enable port 8088.
    • Your web browser may display that the website has a security certificate error. If the IP address is correct, you can neglect the prompt and continue to access the storage system.
    • If you have a usable security certificate, you are advised to use corresponding commands to import the certificate to improve system security. For details about the corresponding commands, see OceanStor 5300 V3&5500 V3&5600 V3&5800 V3&6800 V3 Storage System V300R003 Command Reference .

  3. Optional: Set the authentication mode and language.

    NOTE:

    DeviceManager supports two languages: simplified Chinese and English.

    1. Click Advanced.
    2. From the Authentication mode list, select the authentication mode.

      • Local user: You will log in to the storage system in local authentication mode.
        NOTE:

        The super administrator can log in to the storage system using the Local user authentication mode only.

      • LDAP user: You will log in to the storage system in LDAP domain authentication mode.

        You can log in to the storage system in LDAP domain authentication mode only after the LDAP server is properly configured.

    3. Choose a language from the Language list.

      NOTE:

      DeviceManager supports two languages: simplified Chinese and English.

  4. Type your user name and password in Username and Password respectively.

    NOTE:
    • If you enter wrong passwords for consecutive two times, you need to enter the verification code. In Verification Code, enter the verification code.
    • If LDAP user is selected, the username and password must be a domain username and password. If you want to log in as the super administrator, the default user name and password are admin and Admin@storage respectively.
    • If you forget the password as an administrator or a read-only user, contact the super administrator to reset the password. For details, see Modifying a User. If you forget the password as a super administrator (admin by default), contact root administrator _super_admin to log in to the CLI through a serial port and run initpasswd to reset the password.
    • If you enter incorrect passwords a specified number of times (equal to the value specified in Number of Incorrect Passwords on the Login Policy page), the account is automatically locked for the period of lock time (The lock period of the super administrator is 15 minutes, and the lock period of other users is 15 minutes by default).
    • You must change the default login password immediately when you are logging in to the storage system for the first time and periodically change your login password in the future. This reduces the password leakage risks. For details about how to change the password, see Changing Password (Applicable to V300R003C00/V300R003C10)Changing Password (Applicable to V300R003C20).

  5. Click Log In.

    The DeviceManager main window is displayed.

    NOTE:
    • To log out of the DeviceManager, click in the upper right corner.
    • To view online help, click in the upper right corner. The online help provides details about each step and operation.
