    4. As shown in Figure 6-2, on the Select a product type page, select FusionStorage(File) and click OK.

      • For the first time deployment or post-mirror reinstallation deployment, you have to select the product type.
      • If you select a wrong product type, click the second icon in the upper right corner after logging in to Operation & Maintenance Tool, select the correct product type, and click OK. In the dialog box that is displayed, read the information carefully, select I have read the warning message carefully., and click OK. After the page is refreshed, click Deploy again, and redeploy the storage cluster software.
      Figure 6-2  Selecting the product type

  2. Click Deployment and go to the Deployment page, as shown in Figure 6-3.

    Figure 6-3  Operation & Maintenance Tool deployment page

    1. If the version of the imported software package is not displayed or incorrect, click Import software package manually, and import software package FusionStorage_File_version.tar.gz that matches the production mirroring software.
    2. Import a configuration file.

      In Import Configuration File, click Browse. Select the saved configuration file and click Import. In the dialog box indicating a successful import, click OK.


      A configuration file needs to be prepared based on service planning. For details, see chapter Creating a Configuration File of the FusionStorage File Storage Service Planning Guide.

    3. In DHCP service IP address of the Configure DHCP area, select the IP address configured for SLOT4-0.2/SLOT4-0 in section Building an Installation Environment, and enter the start and end IP addresses in IP address segment.

      The entered IP addresses must fall within the back-end storage network segment and have not been written into the configuration file. The number of those IP addresses is not less than that of deployment nodes. Those IP addresses are used during the software installation and will be released after the software installation.

    4. According to the networking policy, if the front-end service network resides in the same subnet as the management network, select Allows the service network and management network to reside on the same subnet and I have read the previous information and understood consequences of the operation. Then click OK.


      After the option is selected, the system will not separate management users from service users. The users who connect to the management network can access the service network and use service functions. The users who connect to the service network can access the management network and use management functions.

    5. Select It has been confirmed that the deployment server IP address complies with system planning. As shown in Figure 6-4, if all configurations are correct, click Next.

      Figure 6-4  Configured deployment file page

  3. On the Configure switch information page, click Add to add switches. As shown in Figure 6-5, the fixed value of Port is 161, and other parameter values need to be the same as the SNMP of the switch in chapter Configuring Switches. Then click Next.

    The prerequisite for this operation is that the switch IP addresses and SNMP have been configured in the switch configuration phase. This operation aims to make the system take over switch alarms.

    Figure 6-5  Configuring the policy for discovering switches

  4. As shown in Figure 6-6, on the Configure the basic cluster node information page, check the number of nodes and node SNs, and select the nodes and click Next.

    • If the node cannot be reported or is displayed in red, see Troubleshooting Common Faults in the appendix of this document.
    • If the number of available nodes is smaller than that of nodes on which the software is to be installed, click Previous, wait a minute, and retry.
    • If the node SNs are not displayed, in Reported Information List, select the node that connects to the switch from the Node Name drop-down list, and click Associate.

    • If environmentStatus is abnormal or unknown, click detailed in the Operation column to see the possible causes, rectify the fault as instructed, restart the node, and install the software again.

    • SNs are located on the nameplates of the nodes' front panels (Node SNs are 20-character strings to the right of S/N). Alternatively, you can run the ipmitool fru command. Node SNs are given as the Product Serial value in the command output.

    Figure 6-6  Querying node information

  5. In the confirmation dialog box that is displayed, click OK, and automatic deployment for each node starts and the deployment progress is displayed. Figure 6-7 shows the page on which the deployment has been completed.

    It takes approximately 10 minutes to deploy software on no more than 20 nodes. An additional 10 minutes is required for each 20-node increment.

    • If Connection between the browser and server is down is displayed, the default gateway or the IP address of port NIC1 is improperly configured, or Independent management port is improperly set. Change the IP address in the address bar of the browser to be the management IP address of the cluster recorded in the configuration file. If the fault persists, initialize all nodes and re-install the software.

    • If values in the Deployment status column of all nodes are Offline, the IP address of port SLOT4-0/SLOT4-0.2 may be improperly set. After the cause is located, initialize all nodes and re-install the software.

    • If an exception occurs during node deployment, an error code appears in the Deployment status column. To rectify the error, see chapter Appendix Common System Information and Basic System Operations > Error Codes and Handling Methods in this documention

    • If you want to reinstall the software, select all nodes, click Factory reset on the upper area of the page, and enter the verification code (Clean@storage by default). This operation will delete all data irreversibly, stop all service and restore the storage node to factory defaults. The software that you have deployed and all configurations will be cleared after this operation is performed and the node will restart. Make sure that you want to continue this operation.

    Figure 6-7  Deployment completed

  6. After the software is deployed on all nodes, click Finish. On the dialog box that is displayed, click OK.

    The system will update and close Operation & Maintenance Tool on the current node. Wait a minute before verifying the installation.

    You can click Export Configuration on the page to export the configuration file.

Verifying the Installation

On the installation PC, log in to DeviceManager using a web browser. If you can successfully log in and the cluster status is normal, the software is successfully installed.

Detailed verification steps are as follows:

  1. If direct-connection storage nodes are used to build the installation environment, perform the following operations to recover the cable connection. Otherwise, skip the following operations.

    1. Remove the cable between the installation PC and the storage node.

    2. Restore connection between port NIC1 of the storage node and the switch.

    3. Connect the installation PC to the management network.

  2. In the address box of a web browser, type the login address of DeviceManager and press Enter.

    The login address is https://IPv4:8088 or https://[IPv6]:8088, where IPv4 indicates the Management Network IPv4 Address in the configuration file and [IPv6] indicates the Management Network IPv6 Address in the configuration file.

  3. Ignore the warning information.

    For example, if you are using Internet Explorer, click Continue to this website (not recommended) on the security prompt page, as shown in Figure 6-8.

    Figure 6-8  DeviceManager login page

  4. Set Username to admin and Password to Admin@storage, and click Login.

  5. Change the default password Admin@storage as prompted and re-log in to DeviceManager by using the new password.

    For security purposes, after the software installation, you are advised to change the default password at your first login and periodically change the password, and configure the mailbox when the super administrator needs to retrieve its login password by choosing Settings > Permission Settings > SMTP Server.

  6. Check the cluster status and alarms.

    When Health Status is Normal and Running Status is Running, the cluster software has been batch deployed. Otherwise, initialize all nodes and re-deploy the software.

    In the Alarms area, click Show All. Then click the alarm record that you want to handle and handle it as instructed by Suggestion on the right.

Follow-up Procedure

After the software has been batch deployed, perform post-installation tasks listed in Table 6-1.
