Configuring Ethernet Ports

Configuring Ethernet Ports

This section describes how to configure Ethernet ports on OceanStor Dorado V3 to connect to the backup storage.

Prerequisites

The SmartIO or 10GE electrical interface module has been correctly installed on OceanStor Dorado V3 (if you use the Ethernet ports provided by an interface module).

Context

  • Each controller of OceanStor Dorado V3 must have an IP link to back up or restore data.
  • CloudBackup supports the following ports:
    • Onboard SmartIO ports (working in Ethernet mode) on OceanStor Dorado5000 V3 (NVMe) and Dorado5000 V3 series (SAS)
    • Ethernet ports provided by the SmartIO interface module

      If you use a SmartIO interface module, set its working mode to Ethernet before configuring the ports.

    • Ethernet ports provided by the 10GE electrical interface module

Precautions

  • Changing the working mode of a SmartIO interface module will disconnect all ports on this module. Therefore, ensure that the module is not carrying any service before changing its working mode.
  • When configuring an Ethernet port, ensure that no service is running on the port. If an Ethernet port already has an IP address, changing the IP address will interrupt all links to the port.
  • Internal heartbeat links are established between storage controllers. Ensure that the IP addresses of the Ethernet ports and the internal heartbeat IP addresses are on different network segments.
    • The internal heartbeat links are used to detect the working status of each controller and do not require separate cable connections. The internal heartbeat IP addresses have been assigned before delivery and cannot be changed.
    • For a storage system with two controllers, the default internal heartbeat IP addresses are 127.127.127.10 and 127.127.127.11.
    • For a storage system with four controllers, the default internal heartbeat IP addresses are 127.127.127.10, 127.127.127.11, 127.127.127.12, and 127.127.127.13.
  • The IP addresses of the Ethernet port and management network port must be on different network segments.
  • The IP addresses of the Ethernet port and maintenance port must be on different network segments. The maintenance port uses the 172.31.XXX.XXX network segment by default.

Configuring Onboard SmartIO Ports (Applicable to OceanStor Dorado5000 V3 (NVMe) and Dorado5000 V3 Series (SAS))

  1. Click System.
  2. In the navigation tree on the left, select the controller enclosure and controller to be configured, and click FCoE Port to locate the port.

    NOTE:

    You can also click to switch to the rear view of the controller enclosure and find the onboard SmartIO port.

  3. Click the onboard SmartIO port you want to configure.

    The FCoE Port dialog box is displayed.

    NOTE:
    • Ensure that the onboard SmartIO port works in Ethernet mode and is equipped with the 10 Gbit/s optical module.
    • To change the working mode of an onboard port, you must change the working mode of its owning controller.
    • Changing the working mode of a controller will disconnect all SmartIO ports on the controller.
    • Before changing the working mode of a controller, ensure that all services carried by the SmartIO ports on the controller have been stopped.

  4. Click the Ethernet Port tab in the lower pane.

    The detailed port information is displayed.

  5. Select the desired Ethernet port and click Properties.

    The Properties of Port dialog box is displayed.

    NOTE:

    You can also select the port in the rear view and click Modify to configure this port.

  6. Configure the Ethernet port.

    1. In IPv4 Address, set an IP address for the Ethernet port.
      NOTE:

      CloudBackup supports only IPv4 addresses.

    2. In Subnet Mask, enter the subnet mask for the Ethernet port.
    3. In MTU (Byte), specify the maximum transmission unit (MTU) for the packets transmitted between the Ethernet port and the backup storage.

  7. Confirm the configuration.

    1. Click Apply.

      A Danger dialog box is displayed.

    2. Confirm the information in the dialog box and select I have read and understand the consequences associated with performing this operation.
    3. Click OK.

      The Success dialog box is displayed.

    4. Click Close.

      The system returns to the Properties of Port dialog box.

    5. Click OK.
