Logging In to the CLI of the Storage System (Engine's Management Network Port)

Logging In to the CLI of the Storage System (Engine's Management Network Port)

The storage system allows the maintenance terminal to log in to the CLI of the storage system through the controller's management network port, to configure, manage, maintain, and query on the storage system. This document uses Windows Server 2008 as an example. Adjust the operations if you use other operating systems.


  • You can log in to the CLI by using the IPv4 address or IPv6 address.
  • After connecting the maintenance terminal to the controller with cables, you can use remote login software that supports the SSH protocol (such as PuTTY) to log in to the CLI of the storage system on the maintenance terminal.
  • Default IPv4 address of the management network port: for management module 0, for management module 1, and for the subnet mask.


You must ensure that the IP addresses of the maintenance terminal and the management network port of the target controller fall in to the same network segment. This section explains how to change the management network port IP address through a serial port when the management network port IP address of the controller is not on the same network segment as that of the maintenance terminal. For details, see the change system management_ip command.

  • This document uses the PuTTY software as an example. You can download PuTTY from chiark website.
  • You are advised to use the latest version of PuTTY, otherwise you may fail to log in to the storage system.


  1. Run the PuTTY software.

    The PuTTY Configuration dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-14.

  2. Select Session. In the Specify the destination you want to connect to area, enter the IP address of the management network port that connects to the maintenance terminal in Host Name (or IP address) and set Connection type to SSH. Assume the IP address is in this example.
  3. Click Open. The CLI login page is displayed, as shown in the following:

    login as: admin 
    Authorized users only. All activity may be monitored and reported. 
    Using keyboard-interactive authentication.

    • The default user name and password of the super administrator are admin and Admin@storage respectively.
    • Product Model and Product Version vary with the actual device you have logged in to. The actual interface display prevails.
    • You are advised to change your login password periodically in the future by executing the change user_password command. This reduces the password leakage risks.
    • If you forget the password of an administrator or a read-only user, contact the super administrator to run change user to reset the password. If you forget the password of the 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 for a specified number of times (3 times by default and 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.
      • For V300R006C30 and earlier versions, the lock period is 15 minutes by default.
      • For V300R006C50 and later, the lock period is 5 minutes by default
