Configuration Process (System User)

Configuration Process (System User)

Before configuring SmartMulti-Tenant, understand the process to ensure a smooth configuration.

Scenario 1: Configuring All Storage Resources

After configuring basic global resources in the system view, system users switch to the vStore view and configure vStore services in the vStore view. Figure 3-1 shows the configuration process.

Figure 3-1 Configuring SmartMulti-Tenant

Table 3-1 lists the configuration steps.

Preparing for configuration

Logging in to DeviceManager

DeviceManager is a device management platform software developed by Huawei. You can log in to DeviceManager to manage and maintain the storage system.

Creating storage space

Creating a disk domain and a storage pool

A disk domain provides storage space for storage pools. Storage tiers and available capacities depend on the disk types, capacity, and hot spare policy of the disk domain. The storage system automatically allocates hot spare space with different capacities based on hot spare policies to take over data from failed member disks. The storage space used by application servers is provided by the storage pools of the storage system.

Configuring Basic Storage Resources

Creating a role

Creating a role

Storage systems control object operation permissions based on roles. After a role is assigned to a user, the user has the permission to access or operate the objects specified by the role.

Creating a Role

Creating a vStore

Creating a vStore

Creating a vStore is the prerequisite for allocating and managing vStore services.

Creating a vStore

Creating a LUN

Creating a LUN

A LUN indicates a logical unit in storage space.

Creating a LUN

Creating a LUN group

Creating a LUN group

A LUN group is a set of LUNs. Only LUN groups can be added to a mapping view.

Creating a LUN Group

Creating a host

Creating a host

A host is a virtual application server on a storage system. Each host corresponds to an application server. For this reason, you can add an initiator for a host to establish a logical connection between the storage system and application server.

Creating a host group

Creating a host group

A host group is a set of hosts. Only host groups can be added to a mapping view.

Creating a Host Group

Creating a mapping view

Creating a mapping view

The application server corresponding to a host in a host group can use the storage space designated by a LUN in a LUN group only after the host group and LUN group are added to the same mapping view.

Creating a Mapping View

Making storage space available

Making storage space available

Application servers must scan for disks to detect the LUNs mapped by the storage system and use the storage space.

Making Storage Space Available

Scenario 2: Configuring Partial Storage Resources

After configuring basic global resources in the system view, system users switch to the vStore view and create vStore users in the vStore view to prepare for vStore user configuration and vStore service management. Figure 3-2 shows the configuration process.

Configuring domain authentication for a storage system

After a system user configures the LADP domain for a vStore, the vStore user can log in to the vStore using the domain user name.
