Managing Blade Servers

After adding a blade server to eSight, you can view basic information and alarm information about the server. In addition, you can move, delete, change the password of, and modify basic information about the server based on the management requirements.

Prerequisites

The server has been added to eSight.

Context

  • eSight supports alarm monitoring on the Ethernet switching plane. The Ethernet switching plane consists of the Fabric and Base planes.
  • An E9000 chassis has 32 slots. The number of slots varies depending on the type of inserted blades. The formula is as follows: 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 as follows: 32 - 2 x 3 - 3 = 23.

    NOTE:
    • One full-width blade occupies four slots, and only one blade is displayed in the blade list. Therefore, the number of slots is reduced by 3. Examples: CH221 V3 and CH220 V3
    • One half-width blade occupies two slots, and only one blade is displayed in the blade list. Therefore, the number of slots is reduced by 1. Example: CH121 V5
    • One twin blade occupies only one slot. Therefore, the number of slots remains unchanged. Example: CH140 V3

Procedure

  1. Choose Resource > Server from the main menu.

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

  3. In the information display area on the right, you can perform operations in Table 9-9 as prompted to manage blade servers.

FAQ and Troubleshooting Typical Configuration Examples

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

eSight Fails 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

      • 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 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.

    6. Confirm and save the settings.
    7. Perform the following steps when managing the E6000 server:
      1. Log in to the E6000 WebUI.
      2. Set the authorization and authentication protocol to SHA.
      3. Set the data encryption protocol to AES.
      4. Check that the SNMPv3 protocol and password are correct.
      5. Confirm and save the settings.
