(Optional) Checking and Setting the Working Mode of SmartIO Interface Modules

(Optional) Checking and Setting the Working Mode of SmartIO Interface Modules

Check and set the working mode of a SmartIO interface module, ensuring that the SmartIO interface module or onboard interface can work correctly.

Context

Note the following when checking the working mode:

  • A SmartIO interface module supports three working modes: FC, FCoE/iSCSI, and Cluster. The FC and FCoE/iSCSI modes are used for host service connections, and the Cluster mode is used for multi-controller scale-out connections.
NOTE:

When the mode of a SmartIO interface module is set to FCoE, only Intel DCBX (CEE) mode is supported. In this case, set the interconnected switch to the Intel DCBX (CEE) mode. For details about how to query and modify the mode, see the switch product documentation.

  • If the working mode is set to the FC mode, 8 Gbit/s and 16 Gbit/s optical modules must be installed. V500R007C30 also supports 32 Gbit/s optical modules.
  • If the working mode is set to the FCoE/iSCSI or Cluster mode, 10 Gbit/s optical modules must be installed. V500R007C30 also supports 25 Gbit/s optical modules.
  • If the working mode does not match the installed optical modules, a system alarm will be generated, asking you to replace optical modules or change the working mode.

Procedure

  1. Log in DeviceManager.
  2. Go to the Interface Module dialog box.

    1. On the right navigation bar, click .
    2. Click the controller enclosure where the SmartIO interface module or onboard interface resides.
    3. Click to switch to the rear view.
    4. Click the SmartIO interface module or onboard interface. The Interface Module dialog box is displayed.

  3. Click Modify and select FC in the Working Mode text box.

    NOTE:

    The Working Mode can be FC, FCoE/iSCSI, and Cluster. You can select a mode based on your site requirements. This section uses FC as an example.

    After SmartIO interface module working mode is changed into Cluster and the storage system is successfully added to a cluster, its working mode cannot be changed to other working mode.

  4. Click OK. The Danger dialog box is displayed.
  5. Confirm the information in the dialog box and select I have read and understand the consequences associated with performing this operation.
  6. Click OK. The Success dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation succeeded.
  7. Click OK.

    NOTE:

    The new working mode will take effect 5s after the modification.
