This section describes preparations that you are advised to make before configuring the Call Home service.

Item

Description

Obtaining contact details about Huawei technical support center

Before deploying the Call Home service, you need to obtain the Letter of Authorization on the Deployment of Huawei OceanStor eService and Processing of [Customer]'s Data from Huawei technical support center. During Call Home service configuration, you need to contact Huawei technical support center to authenticate storage devices on which the Call Home service will be deployed.

To obtain contact details about Huawei technical support center:

Obtaining the Equipment Serial Number (ESN) and site name of a storage device

The ESN and site name of a storage device are required when Huawei technical support center authenticates the storage device.

You can obtain the ESN based on either of the following procedures:

  • On the navigation bar of DeviceManager, click Home. In the function pane, locate SN in the Basic information area.
  • Log in to the command-line interface (CLI). Run the show system general command and locate SN.

Preparing the network

The network bandwidth must be greater than or equal to 10 Mbit/s.

Enabling ports 7448/TCP, 8448/TCP, and 9448/TCP on the firewall

The eService server uses ports 7448/TCP, 8448/TCP, and 9448/TCP. Enable the three ports on the firewall to allow storage systems to send HTTP requests to the eService server.

For details about how to check whether the ports are enabled, see How Do I Check Whether Network Firewall Ports Are Enabled?.

(Optional) Obtaining the address, port, user name, and password of the HTTP proxy server

This information is required if an internal HTTP proxy server is used for network access.

Obtaining a proper Huawei support account and password

During Call Home service configuration, a Huawei employee support account or a support account dedicated for Call Home service authentication is required for device authentication. If you do not have such an account, contact Huawei technical support center to apply for one.

Obtaining Authorization from Customers

Before enabling the Call Home service, you must obtain authorization from the customer.

To ensure customer network and information security and avoid cyber security risks caused by human factors, Huawei will clarify all operations to be performed as well as their scopes and impact to customers before deploying a service and apply for authorization on these operations. Huawei can perform only authorized operations after obtaining written consent from customers.

To download the Letter of Authorization on the Deployment of Huawei OceanStor eService and Processing of [Customer]'s Data, click this (https://support.huawei.com/enterprise/en/doc/EDOC1100041772?idPath=7919749|7941815|9523109|22379482).

Registering with eService

Huawei technical support center can handle alarms and logs reported by a storage device only after the device is registered with eService.

Context
  • Maintenance personnel at Huawei technical support center are responsible for registering a storage device with eService.
  • Call Home service support personnel must provide the ESN and site name of the storage device to be registered to maintenance personnel at Huawei technical support center. For details about how to obtain contact details about Huawei technical support center and the ESN of a storage device, see Preparations.
Procedure
  1. Download Deployment of Huawei OceanStor eService and Processing of [Customer]'s Data, fill in it, and then save it in the *.jpg format by photographing or scanning. Installation personnel email the scanned copy signed by the customer to maintenance personnel of Huawei technical support center and contact them to register the site with eService.
  2. Maintenance personnel of Huawei technical support center enter the ESN and site name of the storage device to eService and complete the registration.
  3. After the storage device is registered, maintenance personnel at Huawei technical support center notify the Call Home service support personnel.

(Optional) Configuring the DNS Service

After a storage system is connected to a DNS server, you can resolve and access the external domain addresses through the storage system. This operation enables you to configure a system management IP address for the active or standby DNS.

Prerequisites
  • Customer's network management personnel have confirmed that DNS servers are running properly.
  • Port 53 is enabled.
  • If a direct-connection network is used, configure the DNS service and use the IP address 8.8.8.8 or 114.114.114.114 of the external DNS server.
  • If an internal HTTP proxy server is deployed and the proxy server address is a domain name, configure the DNS service.
  • If an internal HTTP proxy server is deployed and the proxy server address is an IP address, you do not need to configure the DNS service.
  • Ensure that the configured DNS server can resolve the extranet domain name.
Context
  • A DNS server is used to resolve external domain name addresses.
  • If you want to configure a standby DNS server, keep the domain names of the active and standby servers consistent.
Procedure
  1. Log in to DeviceManager.
  2. Choose Settings > Basic Information > DNS Service.
  3. Set the DNS information.

    1. Set Active DNS IP Address.
    2. (Optional) Set Standby DNS IP Address 1.
    3. (Optional) Set Standby DNS IP Address 2.
      NOTE:

      Configure the standby DNS IP address 1 first and then the standby DNS IP address 2.

    4. (Optional) Test the connection between the DNS server and the storage system.
      • You can click Test of each DNS IP address to test its availability.
      • You can click Test All to test the connection between the DNS server and the storage system.

  4. Click Save.

    The Success dialog box is displayed, indicating that the operation succeeded.

  5. Click OK.
