Domain Management

Domain Management

Before you use the stateless computing function to migrate configurations, you need to define a stateless device domain for each device. Rack, high-density, and blade servers can be added only to the corresponding rack, high-density, and blade domains respectively.

Creating a Domain

This topic describes how to create a stateless device domain.

Prerequisites

The eSight server device management component has been installed.

Context

If a switch module protocol parameter error is reported during domain creation, check switch module protocol parameters and ensure that the STelnet channels on the switch module planes are available. The operation procedure is as follows:

  1. On the menu bar, choose Resource > Server.
  2. In the navigation tree, choose Server Device > Blade Server.
  3. Click the IP address of the server where the switch module to be managed resides.
  4. In the navigation tree, choose Settings > Protocol Parameters of Switch Boards.
  5. Check and change the FC, Fabric, and Base plane protocol parameters of switch modules as required.
Procedure
  1. On the menu bar, choose Resource > Server.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Stateless Computing > Domain Manager > Domain.

  3. Click Create.
  4. Configure the basic information of the device domain.

    1. Set the device domain name, description, and type.
    2. Add stateless devices to the device domain.

      In the device selection area, select the stateless devices desired, click Confirm.

      If the device domain type is Blade, you need to configure the switch modules in the slots 1E (slot 1), 4E (slot 4), 2X (slot 2), and 3X (slot 3), and configure the Fabric plane, Base plane and FC plane for the switch modules.

    3. Optional: Configuring 2X/3X

      For example, set the type of the switch connecting to eSight to CX920.

      1. Configure the basic information of the 2X and 3X slots.

      2. Configure basic information of the Fabric and Base planes.

        If Stack Mode is Stack or Cross-Stack, click Configure Stack Port, you need to set the ports to be stacked. you need to configure stack ports to improve the data switching rate.

        Figure 9-9 Stacking example (intra-chassis stacking)
        • Click to stack the selected ports.
        • You can click to cancel a staked port.
        NOTE:

        Cross-chassis stack ports can be configured with the Chain or Ring working mode.

        When configuring stack ports, do not use the internal 40GE port and the external 10GE port for the switch modules within the same chassis at the same time.

        For the relationships between stack ports and physical device ports, see Passthrough and Switch Modules > Overview > Ports in the E9000 Blade Server Product Documentation. The methods for obtaining the E9000 Blade Server Product Documentation are as follows:

        • For enterprise users:
        1. Log in to Huawei's enterprise support website http://support.huawei.com/enterprise.
        2. Browse or search E9000 Blade Server Product Documentation (IT > Server > E9000 Blade Series > E9000 Chassis).
        3. Select the version desired to browse or download.
        • For carriers:
        1. Log in to Huawei's carrier support website http://support.huawei.com/carrier.
        2. Browse or search E9000 Chassis Product Documentation Library (Support > Product Support > Carrier IT > Server > FusionServer > E9000 Blade Series > E9000 Chassis).
        3. Select the version desired to browse or download.
      3. Reset the switch module network information and user password.

        If the user password does not need to be set, ignore this step.

      4. Configure the uplink.

        The uplink functions as the channel for the switch module to communicate with external entities.

        • If Model is Manual, only Mini Active Link needs to be set.
        • If Model is LACP, both Mini Active Link and Max Active Link need to be set.
    4. Optional:Configuring 1E/4E.

      For example, set the type of the switch connecting to eSight to CX220.

      1. Configure the basic information of the IE and 4E slots.

      2. Set the FC working mode.

        The options of FC working mode are NPV and Switch.

        NOTE:
        • In NPV mode, switch modules connect to the storage network through an FC switch.
        • In switch mode, switch modules are directly connected to the storage network.
        • NPV

          If the FC working mode is NPV, you need to configure the mapping between the 1E and 4E slots.

        • Switch

          If the FC working mode is Switch, you need to configure Alias Configuration and Zone Configuration.

  5. Click OK.

      Icon

      Description

      Migrates profiles of selected devices to devices of the same type in a stateless computing domain.

      NOTE:

      Manual migration supports cross-domain device migration but you need to ensure that the devices match network configurations.

      Associates with the corresponding profile.

      Disassociates from the corresponding profile.

      Exports the configuration of a selected device or exports the profile associated with the device to generate a configuration template.

      NOTE:

      You can click the icon to export device configurations only when the configurator is one of the following:
