Server Configuration and Deployment

Server Configuration and Deployment

You can create or import templates, and deliver the operations defined in templates to specified network elements (NEs).

Uploading a Software Source

When configuring the operating system, you need to upload the source file.

Prerequisites
Context

When you upload a software source, the remaining space of the disk where eSight is installed must be equal to or larger than 40 GB.

Procedure
  1. Choose Resource > Server from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Configuration&Deployment > Software Source Management.

  3. Click Add.

  4. Configure the software source as prompted.

    You are advised to open only one software uploading page in your browser to ensure successful uploading.

    To prevent the software uploading duration from exceeding the timeout threshold, choose System > User Management > Idle Time Setting and perform either of the following operations:

    • Select Enable auto logout and increase the value of Idle Time. You are advised to set the idle duration to 1 hour.
    • Deselect Enable auto logout to disable the function.
    The following table describes the software source parameters and related precautions.

      2. Set the operating system type and disk partitioning as prompted.
      3. Click OK.
    • SUSE Linux, Red Hat, or CentOS

Creating a Network Template

This section describes how to create a network template. A network template defines the IP address of the management network port on an NE.

Prerequisites
The servers have been powered on.
NOTE:

If newly delivered servers are used, you need to configure IP addresses for them. If Management network port in the network template is set to Manually set IP address, you need to configure the static IP address for the servers.

Procedure
  1. Choose Resource > Server from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Configuration&Deployment > Template Management.

  3. In the function pane, click Create Template.
  4. Sett Template type to Network template.
  5. Set Management network port.

    • Select the Automatically obtain IP address option.
      If you select Automatically obtain IP address, the DHCP server automatically assigns static IP addresses to management network ports after the template is deployed on the NEs.

      Because the assigned IP addresses differ from the original IP addresses, the rack servers and high-density servers on the eSight are offline.

      1. Select Automatically obtain IP address.
      2. Click OK.
    • Select the Manually set IP address option.
      If you select Manually set IP address, the NE IP addresses on eSight change with the change in the management network port IP addresses of the NEs after the template is deployed on the NEs.
      1. Select Manually set IP address.

        NOTE:
        • The default gateway cannot be set to a network segment different from the IP address of the original gateway.

          If you need to change the default gateway of an NE to an IP address that is not in the same network segment as the original default gateway, log in to the NE and change its default gateway.

        • The Default gateway parameter cannot be set for an E6000 server. If you set Default gateway for an E6000 server, the network template will fail to be deployed. After the network template on the eSight is deployed on the server, the server IP address and subnet mask are changed but the default gateway remains unchanged.

          If you need to change the default gateway for an E6000 server, log in to the server and change its default gateway.

      2. Configure the IP address as prompted.
      3. Click OK.
    • Import IP addresses in batches.
      1. Select Import IP in Batches.

      2. Download the IP address batch import template.
      3. Fill in the template based on instructions in the template.
        NOTE:

        After the Import IP in Batches task is executed, the values of IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Default Gateway will be changed to the specified values.

      4. Click Upload.

        After the upload is successful, information about the imported IP addressess is displayed.

Creating a Power Template

  4. Set Template type to Power template.
  5. Select the Power on, Power off, or Restart option next to Power control.
  6. Click OK.
Creating an iBMC Template

This section describes how to create an iBMC template. An iBMC template defines the iBMC configuration of an NE.

Procedure
  1. Choose Resource > Server from the main menu.

  2. In the navigation tree, choose Configuration&Deployment > Template Management.

  3. In the function pane, click Create Template.
  4. Set Template type to iBMC template.

      NOTE:
      • In versions earlier than iBMC2.32, eSight does not support NTP configuration.
      • In iBMC2.56 and later versions, Min. NTP Time Sync Interval and Max. NTP Time Sync Interval can be set.
      1. Select NTP.

      2. Configure the NTP as prompted.
      3. Click OK.
    • DNS
      1. Select DNS.

      2. Select the DNS obtaining mode as prompted.
      3. Click OK.
    • LDAP
      1. Select LDAP.

        NOTE:

        A maximum of five role groups can be added to each iBMC template.

      2. Configure the LDAP as prompted.
      3. Click OK.
    • Power capping

      • Exercise caution when you set the power capping value. A small power capping value may affect system performance and business operation.
      • Services may be affected if you select The system will shut down automatically in 15 seconds after power capping fails. Select it only when necessary.
      1. Select Power Capping.

        NOTE:
        • If The system will shut down automatically in 15 seconds after power capping fails is set to Enabled, the server will be automatically powered off 15 seconds after power capping fails.
        • The Power Capping Value parameter indicates the maximum power of the server.
      2. Configure the power capping as prompted.
      3. Click OK.

      2. Set the slot number, controller, and controller port properties.
        NOTE:

        When the CNA card that supports the iSCSI mode is configured, it is recommended that the value of the Initiator Name parameter contain a maximum 160 characters. Otherwise, data fails to be written on some cards at a probability.

      3. Click OK.
    • MZ910
      1. Select MZ910.

      2. Set the slot number and port properties as prompted.
      3. Click OK.

Creating a Switch Board Template

This section describes how to create a switch board template. A switch board template configures stacking, VLANs, and user-defined settings for a switch board.

    NOTE:

    When Configuration Type is set to Stack configuration, pay attention to the following:

    • After the stacking configuration is deleted, change the IP addresses and engine IDs of all switch boards based on the configuration plan.
    • Ensure that each switch board has a unique IP address and engine ID because eSight cannot collect the performance data if the IP address or engine ID of a switch board conflicts with that of the other switch board.
    • For details about how to change the IP address and engine ID of a switch board, see related product documents.

  6. Click OK.
