Logging In to DeviceManager (Management Network Port)

Logging In to DeviceManager (Management Network Port)

To log in to the DeviceManager management page, open a web browser on a maintenance terminal connected to the storage system, and type the IP address of the management network port of the storage system in the address box.

Prerequisites

  • The IP address of the management port of the storage system has been configured.
  • The maintenance terminal communicates with the storage system properly.
  • Before logging in to DeviceManager as a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) domain user, first configure the LDAP domain server, and then configure LDAP server parameters on the storage device accordingly, at last create an LDAP user.
  • The initial user name and password for logging in to DeviceManager are admin and Admin@storage respectively.
  • Operating system and browser versions of the maintenance terminal

    DeviceManager supports multiple operating systems and browsers. You can query the compatibility using the OceanStor Interoperability Navigator.

Context

  • DeviceManager only supports TSL protocols (including TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2).
  • 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.
  • This document exemplifies how to log in to DeviceManager in Windows using Mozilla Firefox. For other operating systems, revise the login procedure accordingly.
  • By default, DeviceManager allows 32 users to log in concurrently.

When logging in to DeviceManager on the maintenance terminal through the management port of the storage system, you can obtain different operational permissions based on the SVP status.

  • When the SVP runs normally, the system redirects to DeviceManager of SVP. You can query, configure, and manage storage services on DeviceManager, as well as query and manage the services on the SVP.
  • When the SVP encounters an exception (for example, SVP is not connected to the customer's network, becomes faulty, or cannot communicate with the storage system), you can query, configure, and manage storage services. However, you cannot restart the storage system, dump performance files to SVP, or query and manage SVP services.

Procedure

  1. Open Mozilla Firefox on the maintenance terminal.
  2. In the address box, type https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8088 and press Enter.

    The DeviceManager login page is displayed.

    NOTE:
    • XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX represents the IP address of the storage system management network port.
    • Your web browser may show that the website has a privacy error. If the IP address is correct, you can neglect the prompt and continue to access the storage system. If you want to fix this error, you can have the certificate request file signed by a third-party CA center or by your own CA certificates. For details about the method using your own CA certificates, see How Can I Use Self-Signed Certificates to Fix the Privacy Error Displayed When I Attempt to Log In to DeviceManager?
    • 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 Command Reference.

  3. (Optional) Choose an authentication mode and language.

    1. Click Advanced.
    2. Select an authentication mode from the Authentication mode list.
      • Local user: Logs in to the storage system using local authentication.
      NOTE:

      The admin user can log in to the storage system only in Local user authentication mode.

      • LDAP user: Logs in to the storage system using LDAP domain authentication.
    3. Choose a language from the Language list.

  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 user name and password must be a domain user name and password. For V300R006C50 and later, Domain Name is also required.
      • For a domain user of domain authentication server 0, the user can log in to DeviceManager of a storage system typing domain or the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN in Domain Name.
      • For a domain user of domain authentication server 1, 2, or 3, the user can log in to DeviceManager of a storage system typing the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN in Domain Name.

        If the base DN of the domain authentication server contains only one dc field, the dc field is used as the combination of the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN.

        For example, if the base DN of the domain authentication server is ou=applications,dc=bigcorp, bigcorp is the combination of the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN.

        If the base DN of the domain authentication server contains multiple dc fields, they are combined and then separated by a period (.) to serve as the combination of the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN.

        For example, if the base DN of the domain authentication server is ou=applications,dc=bigcorp,dc=com, bigcorp.com is the combination of the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN.

    • 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 of an administrator or a read-only user, contact the super administrator 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. For details, see Resetting the Password of an Administrator or a Read-Only User and Resetting the Password of a Super Administrator.
    • 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
    • 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.
