Repository

Repository

The repository function allows you to create pools, adapters, VLAN Group and basic input/output system (BIOS) policies used in profiles.

Creating a Pool

Before creating profiles, you need to create pools based on site requirements, including Media Access Control (MAC) address pools, World Wide Port Name (WWPN) pools, World Wide Node Name (WWNN) pools, and universally unique identifier (UUID) pools.

Context
  • MAC address pool: Each MAC address identifies a globally unique network adapter. A MAC address pool stores a collection of MAC addresses. You can select converged network adapter (CNA) MAC addresses from the MAC address pool.
  • WWPN pool: Each WWPN identifies a globally unique storage adapter port. A WWPN pool stores a collection of WWPN information. You need to set WWPN information for each port when creating a host bus adapter (HBA) or CNA.
  • WWNN pool: Each WWNN identifies a globally unique storage adapter. A WWNN pool stores a collection of WWNN information. You need to set WWNN information when creating an HBA or CNA.
  • UUID pool: A UUID identifies a globally unique element in a distributed system. A UUID pool stores a collection of UUID information. You need to set UUID information when creating a profile.
Procedure
  1. On the menu bar, choose Resource > Server.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Stateless Computing > Repository > Pools to display the pool list.

    NOTE:

    You can create MAC address pool, WWPN pool, WWNN pool, or UUID pool in the function pane to open the page for creating a pool.

    1. In the function pane, click a tab based on the type of the pool to be created.
    2. Click Create, open the page for creating a pool.

  3. Set the pool name, start MAC address (or start WWPN, WWNN, or UUID), number of MAC addresses (or WWPNs, WWNNs, or UUIDs), and pool description.

    NOTE:
    • To avoid MAC address conflicts, create MAC address pools based on the MAC address segment 78-D7-52-CB-00-00 to 78-D7-52-CB-FF-FF that Huawei has applied for.
    • To avoid WWPN conflicts, create WWPN pools based on the WWPN segment 100078D752CB0000 to 100078D752CBFFFF that Huawei has applied for.

  4. Click OK.
Follow-up Procedure

After pools are created, you can perform one of the following operations:

  • Select a pool and click Delete to delete it.
  • Select a pool and click Export to export information associated with the resource pool to a local file.
  • Click a pool name. On the pool configuration page, modify pool configuration.

Creating an Adapter

Before creating profiles, create adapters based on site requirements. The adapters include host bus adapters (HBAs), converged network adapters (CNAs), and RAID adapters.

Context

The three types of adapters provide the following functions:

  • HBAs provide I/O processing and physical connections between servers and storage devices.
  • CNAs provide I/O processing and physical connections between servers and storage devices.
  • RAID adapters support RAID functions.
Procedure
  1. On the menu bar, choose Resource > Server.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Stateless Computing > Repository > Adapters to display the adapter list.
  3. Click Create, open the page for creating an adapter.
  4. Enter an adapter name in the Name text box and an adapter description in the Description text box, and select an adapter type from the Type drop-down list.

    • If you select HBA, perform the following operations:
      1. Click Next.
      2. Select an HBA model and click Next.
      3. Select World Wide Node Name (WWNN) and World Wide Port Name (WWPN) configuration modes.
        NOTE:

        You can click Advanced and enter a target WWPN and target logical unit number (LUN) ID to enable the storage area network (SAN) boot function.

      4. Click Next.
      5. Confirm summary information and click Finish.
    • If you select CNA, perform the following operations:
      NOTE:
      • When configuring the CNA card that supports the iSCSI mode, it is recommended that the length of the Initiator Name parameter be less than 160 characters. Otherwise, data fails to be written on some cards at a probability.
      • The constraints for configuring the MZ520 and MZ522 are as follows:
        • The BIOS version of the CH242 V3 must be 3.55 or later. The BIOS version of other V3 servers must be 3.87 or later.
        • The BIOS version of the CH121 V5 must be 0.66 or later. The BIOS version of the CH242 V5 must be 0.84 or later. Other V5 devices do not support the MZ520 and MZ522.
        • The iBMC version must be 3.08 or later.
        • The FILTERING configuration is supported only when the MZ520 and MZ522 firmware version is 7.15.09 or later.
        • The FCoE ports on the MZ520 and MZ522 must be enabled for FCoE-related configurations. The FCoE ports can be enabled only when devices discovered in FCP mode exist on the network, for example, CX320 and FCoE switches in FCF or NPV mode, and mezzanine cards of the CX311.
      1. Click Next and select a CNA model.
      2. Optional: Set the MF status.
      3. Click Next to create teaming and set the PF type, MAC address, and PF VLAN ID for each virtual port.
        • Create a teaming.
          MZ512, MZ510, MZ710 MZ910, MZ520 , and MZ522 NICs support port bonding configuration through teaming. You can configure two physical ports (such as port0 and port1) as a logical port to increase downlink communication channels between switch modules and NICs and improve channel reliability.
          NOTE:

          Currently, the downlink switching configuration function is not implemented for the MZ910.

          1. Click Create Teaming. The teaming creation page is displayed.
          2. Enter the name and description of a teaming in the Name and Description text boxes respectively.
          3. Configure ports for the teaming
            NOTE:

            Select either of the following port combinations:

            Port0+Port1

            Port2+Port3

            Port0+Port1+Port2+Port3

          4. Select a working mode and the PF type and VLAN group for its virtual port.

            If the physical ports (ports 0, 1, 2, and 3) are virtualized through teaming, the PF type and VLAN group are displayed in the physical port configuration area.

            The teaming working mode can be Active-Backup, Balance, or LACP.

          5. Click OK.
        • Configure the virtual port information.

    • Certain BIOS parameters vary depending on BIOS platforms used by devices and do not take effect. (For example, Console Serial Port-TerminalType, Console Serial Port-Baud Rate, Console Serial Port-Data Bits, Virtualization-PCIeSRIOVSupport, Console Serial Port-Parity, Console Serial Port-StopBits, Console Serial Port-WakeOnLan)
    • If the installed PCIe device requires more than 4GB resources, this function will be automatically enabled when the server restarts. (For example, PCIe 64-bit Decode)

  7. Click Advanced and set advanced parameters for the BIOS policy.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Finish.

    A success message is displayed.

  10. Click OK.

After BIOS policies are created, you can perform the following operations:

  • Select a BIOS policy and click Delete to delete it.
  • Click a BIOS policy name. On the BIOS policy configuration page, modify the other parameters except the policy name.

Creating a VLAN Group

This topic describes how to create a VLAN group providing VLANs required for profile creation, domain configuration, and uplink configuration.

Context

A local area network (LAN) can be divided into several logical LANs. Each logical LAN is a broadcast domain, which is called a virtual LAN (VLAN). That is, the devices in a LAN are logically divided into different LAN segments, namely, different VLANs, irrespective of their physical locations. In this manner, the broadcast domains within a LAN are separated from each other.

In VLAN networking, the devices that need to communicate with each other are added to a VLAN; the devices that do not need to communicate with each other are added to different VLANs. This isolates broadcast domains, eliminates broadcast storms, and improves the security of data transmission. With the expansion of network scales, a local network fault impacts the entire network. For details about VLANs, see VLAN Overview.

Procedure
  1. On the menu bar, choose Resource > Server.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Stateless Computing > Repository > VLAN Group to display the VLAN group list.
  3. Click Add, open to the VLAN group creation page.
  4. Configure the basic information of the VLAN group.

    1. Type the VLAN group name in the Name text box.
    2. Add members to the VLAN group.

    3. Click OK. The system displays a success message.

  5. Click OK.
Follow-up Procedure

After the VLAN group is created, you can perform the following operations:

  • Select a VLAN group and click Delete to delete it.
  • Click the VLAN group name to go to the VLAN group configuration page where you can modify the VLAN group parameters.
