Logging In to DeviceManager

Logging In to DeviceManager

DeviceManager is a device management program developed by Huawei and has been loaded to the storage system before delivery. To log in to DeviceManager, choose either of the two ways: through the web or using a tablet.

Logging In to DeviceManager (Through Web)

You can log in to DeviceManager on any maintenance terminal connected to the storage system by using the management network port IP address of the storage system and the local or domain user name in a browser.

Prerequisites

Ensure that the temporary maintenance terminal used for initial configuration has been connected to the management ports of the storage device, and the IP address of the maintenance terminal and the default IP addresses of the management ports are on the same network segment.

Verify that the maintenance terminal meets the following requirements before you use DeviceManager:

  • Operating system and browser versions of the maintenance terminal are supported.

    DeviceManager supports multiple operating systems and browsers. For details, access Huawei Storage Interoperability Navigator to query.

  • The maintenance terminal communicates with the storage system properly.
  • The super administrator can log in to the storage system using the Local user authentication mode only.
  • To use a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) domain user account to log in to DeviceManager, you must configure the LDAP server first, then set the LDAP server parameters and create an LDAP user account on DeviceManager.
  • By default, DeviceManager allows 32 users to log in concurrently.
Context
  • DeviceManager only supports TLS protocols (including TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2).
NOTE:

The super administrator can run change devicemanager tls min_version=? to change the earliest version of TLS supported by DeviceManager. Then, the super administrator must run reboot storage service service_name=devicemanager to restart DeviceManager for the change to take effect.

  • For a 2 U controller enclosure, the default IP addresses of the management network ports on controllers A and B are respectively 192.168.128.101 and 192.168.128.102, and the default subnet mask is 255.255.0.0. For a 3 U or 6 U controller enclosure, 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.
  • The default user name and password of the super administrator are admin and Admin@storage, respectively.
  • This section uses the Windows operating system as an example to explain how to log in to DeviceManager. The login operations on other operating systems need to be adjusted accordingly.
  • If a user does not perform any operations after logging in to the system for a period longer than the timeout limit (the limit is 30 minutes by default and modifiable), the system logs out automatically.
  • If an account is not used to log in to the system for a certain period of time (the period is 60 days by default and modifiable), it will be locked and can only be unlocked by the super administrator.
Procedure
  1. Run Internet Explorer on the maintenance terminal.
  2. In the address box, type https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8088 and press Enter.

    NOTE:
    • XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX represents the management network port IP address of the storage system.
    • In an environment with a firewall, when the system externally provides web services, you need to enable port 8088.
    • Your web browser may display a message indicating that the website has a security certificate 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 use 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 OceanStor 5000, 5000F, 6000, and 6000F V5 Series V500R007 Command Reference.

  3. Optional: Set the authentication mode and language.

    1. Click Advanced.
    2. From the Authentication mode list, select the authentication mode.
      • Local user: Log in to the storage system in local authentication mode.
      NOTE:

      The super administrator can log in to the storage system using the Local user authentication mode only.

      • LDAP user: Log in to the storage system in LDAP domain authentication mode.

        You can log in to the storage system in LDAP domain authentication mode only after an LDAP server is properly configured.

    3. Choose a language from the Language list.
    NOTE:

    DeviceManager supports two languages: English and simplified Chinese.

  4. Type your user name and password in Username and Password respectively.

    NOTE:
    • If you enter wrong passwords for two consecutive times, you need to enter the verification code. In Verification Code, enter the correct verification code.
    • If LDAP user is selected, the username and password must be a domain username and password. For V500R007C30, 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 a combination of 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 only typing a combination of the dc field in the domain authentication server's base DN in Domain Name.
      1. 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.

      2. 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 as an administrator or a read-only user, contact the super administrator to run change user to reset the password. If you forget the password as a 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" or "Resetting the Password of a Super Administrator" in the OceanStor V5 Series V500R007 Administrator Guide.
    • If you enter incorrect passwords a specified number of times (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 V500R007C20 and earlier versions, the super administrator and other accounts will be locked for 15 minutes by default.
      • For V500R007C30, the super administrator and other accounts will be locked for 5 minutes by default.

      For details on setting the lock period, see "Configuring a Security Policy for System User" in the OceanStor V5 Series V500R007 Administrator Guide.

    • You are advised to change the default login password immediately after you log in to the storage system for the first time and to periodically change your login password in the future. This reduces password leakage risks. For details about how to change a password, see "Changing Password" in the OceanStor V5 Series V500R007 Administrator Guide.

  5. Click Log In.

    The DeviceManager main window is displayed.
