Storage System Configuration

Storage System Configuration

This section details how to add initiators to the hosts on the storage system. For other storage configurations, see the Basic Storage Service Configuration Guide corresponding to your storage system.

  1. Log in to the storage system on a web browser.

    After you have configured the zones on the switch, log in to DeviceManager of the storage system and choose Provisioning > Host > Initiator. On the page that is displayed, select FC from the Initiator Type drop-down list. Check whether the host initiators have been discovered.

    As shown in Figure 5-10, the host initiators have been discovered and are online.

  5. Verify that the initiators have been added to the host correctly.

    Figure 5-14 Verifying the configuration

    As shown in Figure 5-14, the initiators have been added to the host successfully. The initiator properties depend on the operating system and multipathing software used by the hosts. For details, see the storage-side configuration in the multipathing configuration section in this document. After the initiators have been configured, you can scan for LUNs on the hosts to discover storage resources.
