Managing Blade Servers

After blade servers are added to eSight, you can view their basic information, alarm information, and hard disk SMART information. In addition, you can manage the blade servers as required. For example, you can move or delete blade servers, change server passwords, and modify server basic information.

Prerequisites

Servers have been added to eSight.

Context

  • eSight supports alarm monitoring of switching planes, including Fabric and Base planes.
  • An E9000 chassis has 32 slots. The total number of slots changes with the type of inserted blades. The formula is as follows: Total number of slots = 32 - Number of full-width blades x 3 - Number of half-width blades
    For example, if two full-width blades, three half-width blades, and four twin blades are inserted into the E9000 chassis, the total number of slots is calculated as follows: 32 - 2 x 3 - 3 = 23
    NOTE:
    • One full-width blade (for example, CH221 V3 or CH220 V3) occupies four slots, but only one blade is displayed in the current blade list. Therefore, the total number of blades should decrease by 3.
    • One half-width blade (for example, CH121 V5) occupies two slots, but only one blade is displayed in the current blade list. Therefore, the total number of blades should decrease by 1.
    • One twin blade (for example, CH140 V3) occupies one slot. Therefore, the total number of slots keeps unchanged.

Procedure

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

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Server Device > Blade Server.

  3. In the function pane, you can perform the operations described in Table 9-9 to manage blade servers.

FAQ and Troubleshooting Typical Configuration Examples

This topic describes how to resolve issues that may occur during server management by using eSight.

eSight Failed to Receive Alarms from a Managed Server

Symptom

eSight fails to receive alarms from a managed server.

Possible Causes

  • The alarms that eSight fails to receive are generated before the server is added to eSight.

    eSight cannot synchronize alarms from servers. Therefore, alarms generated before servers are added to eSight are displayed only on iMana but not on eSight.

  • The server has not registered a trap IP address with its baseboard management controller (iBMC).
  • The trap mode of the server is not set to OID.
  • When the SNMP trap version is set to v3 for the E6000:
    • The authorization and authentication protocol is not set to SHA, and the data encryption protocol is not set to AES.
    • The SNMPv3 protocol or password is incorrect.

Procedure

  • Manage the E9000 server.
    1. Run the following command to view the E9000 trap mode:

      smmget -d trapformat

      In the command output:

      • 0: indicates that the trap mode is event code.
      • 1: indicates that the trap mode is OID.
    2. If the E9000 trap mode is not OID, run the following command to set the trap mode to OID:

      smmset -d trapformat -v 1

    3. Log in to the E9000 iMana WebUI and check whether the eSight IP address is set as a trap address.

      If the eSight IP address is not set as a trap address, enter the eSight IP address.

  • Manage servers of other types.
    1. Log in to the server web user interface (WebUI).
    2. In the navigation bar, choose Configuration > Log and Alarm.
    3. In the right function pane, choose Trap State.
    4. Set Trap Mode to OID.
    5. Enable the trap function and set Trap IP Address and Trap Port.
