OceanStor 2800 V5 V500R007

This document is applicable to OceanStor 2800 V5. Routine maintenance activities are the most common activities for the storage device, including powering on or off the storage device, managing users, modifying basic parameters of the storage device, and managing hardware components. This document is intended for the system administrators who are responsible for carrying out routine maintenance activities, monitoring the storage device, and rectifying common device faults.

Logging In to DeviceManager (Through Web)

Logging In to DeviceManager (Through Web)

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

Prerequisites

  • Operating system and browser versions of the maintenance terminal

    DeviceManager supports multiple operating systems and browsers. You can query the compatibility using the OceanStor Interoperability Navigator.

  • 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, set the LDAP server parameters, and then create an LDAP user account on DeviceManager. Creating a Domain User (Applicable to V500R007C20 and Earlier Versions) details the configuration methods.
  • 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.
  • This document 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 the firewall function, when the system externally provides web services, you need to enable port 8088.
    • Your web browser may show that the website has a privacy 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 by 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 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: You will 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: You will 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 the LDAP server is properly configured.

    3. Choose a language from the Language list.

      DeviceManager supports simplified Chinese and English.

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

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

        If the base DN of 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.

        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 of an administrator or a read-only user, contact the super administrator to reset the password. If you forget the password of the 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 and Resetting the Password of a Super Administrator.
    • If you enter incorrect passwords for a specified number of times (3 times by default and 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 lock period is 15 minutes by default.
      • For V500R007C30 and later, the lock period is 5 minutes by default
    • Change the default login password immediately after you have logged in to the storage system for the first time. Periodically change your login password to reduce the password leakage risks. For details about how to change the password, see Changing Password.

  5. Click Log In.

    The DeviceManager main window is displayed.

    NOTE:
    • To log out of DeviceManager, click in the upper right corner.
    • To view online help, click in the upper right corner. The online help provides details about each step and operation.
