Installing FusionStorage

Installing FusionStorage

This section describes how to install FusionStorage, including installing management nodes, storage nodes, as well as creating control clusters.

Scenarios

  • Install management software for management nodes and configure the management network.
  • Install components for storage nodes and configure the storage network.
  • Create a control cluster for FusionStorage.

Prerequisites

The network connection between the installation PC and device is normal.

Procedure

  1. Decompress FusionStorage_devicemanager-client_version.zip on the installation PC, and double-click run.bat in the decompression directory. The browser automatically opens DeviceManager Client.

    During the installation, do not close the FusionStorage_devicemanager-client window.

    The decompression path of the software package cannot contain spaces.

    If the browser does not automatically opens, open the browser manually and enter https://127.0.0.1:port in the address box. The value of port is the port number in character string Starting ProtocolHandler ["http-nio-127.0.0.1-8088"] displayed in the FusionStorage_devicemanager-client window, for example, 8088.

  2. Ignore the warning information. Take Google Chrome as an example. On the security prompt page, click Advanced and select Proceed to 127.0.0.1 (unsafe).

    The FusionStorage installation page is displayed, as shown in Figure 2-8.

      Name

      Description

      Converged deployment

      If data communication is not isolated, data communication between OSDs as well as between VBS and OSDs uses the same storage network.

      Independent deployment

      If data communication is isolated, data communication between VBS and OSDs uses the front-end storage network and that between OSDs uses the back-end storage network.

    2. Enter the information about the storage network. Table 2-29 describes the information.
      Table 2-29 Storage network information

      Name

      Description

      Transport Protocol

      The value can be TCP, IB, or RoCE.

      Port Type

      • Bond port: If no IP address is configured for the storage network port, the storage network is configured based on the entered IP Address Range and Port information.
      • Unlimited: If an IP address has been configured for the storage network port, the configured IP address must be within the specified IP Address Range.

      Binding Mode

      • bond1: primary/secondary mode
      • bond2: load balancing mode
      • bond4: dynamic link aggregation mode
      NOTE:
      • When the transmission protocol is TCP, the bond1 and bond4 modes are supported. The bond4 mode is recommended.
      • When the transmission protocol is IB, only the bond2 mode is supported.
      • When the transmission protocol is RoCE, the bond1 and bond2 modes are supported. The bond1 mode is recommended.

      IP Address Range

      IP address segment of a storage network. Parameters in the same row cannot be on different network segments.

      Subnet Mask

      Indicates the subnet mask of the storage network.

      Gateway

      Indicates the gateway of the storage network.

      Port

      Indicates the network port used by the storage network.

      NOTE:
      • You can click to manage bound ports, binding multiple physical ports together.
      • If the storage network type is the front-end and back-end shared network and the transmission protocol is RoCE, the name of the aggregation network port must be fsb_bond.
    3. If the storage network type is the front-end and back-end shared network and the transmission protocol is RoCE, you need to configure the RoCE network. For details, see Configuring the RoCE Network.
    4. Click Preview and then Submit to start configuring the storage network. After the storage network is successfully configured, click Next.

  6. Install storage nodes.

    1. Click Install to start installing the storage node.
      NOTE:

      You can click in the row where the node resides, select Details to view installation log details.

    2. After the storage network is successfully installed, click Next.

  7. Optional: If the IB network is used, you need to start OpenSM before creating a control cluster.

    1. Use SSH to log in to the management node as user dsware.
    2. Run the following command to deploy and start the OpenSM process. To run this command, you need to enter CLI super administrator account admin and its password.

      sh /opt/dsware/client/bin/dswareTool.sh --op startupOpenSM -ip Management IP address of the control cluster node -num Number of processes -ports IB network port name

      The number of processes must be the same as that of IB network ports. The configuration rules of the OpenSM process are as follows:

      • Generally, four processes are installed on three storage nodes with IB network ports (two on one storage node and one on the other two storage nodes).
      • If there are multiple chassis or cabinets and the cabinet-level security is planned, the OpenSM process must be deployed in different chassis or cabinets to improve reliability.

  8. Create a control cluster.

    Enter the information about the control cluster. Table 2-30 describes the control cluster information.
    Table 2-30 Control cluster information

    Name

    Description

    NOTE:

    If System Disk Partition is selected, the /opt/zk_disk and /opt/ccdb_disk partitions of the system disk are used to store metadata.

    Disk Type

    This parameter is mandatory when Metadata Storage Location is set to Physical Disk. You can select SAS Disk, SATA Disk, SSD Card&NVMe SSD, or SSD.

    Selection Mode

    This parameter is mandatory when Metadata Storage Location is set to Physical Disk. You can select Specify Slot or Manually Select.

    Available Nodes

    Indicates the nodes that can be used to create a control cluster. The rules for configuring the number of nodes in a control cluster are as follows:

    Cabinet-level security:

    • 4 cabinets or less: 3 nodes
    • 5 cabinets or more: 5 nodes

    Server-level security

    • 32 servers or less: 3 nodes
    • 32 < Number of servers ≤ 128: 5 nodes
    • More than 128 servers: 7 nodes

    After entering the control cluster information, click Create to create a control cluster. After the creation is successful, click Finish.

  9. Create a storage pool and enable VBS so that application servers can access the distributed storage resources through VBS. For details, see Configuring Basic Storage Services in the FusionStorage Basic Service Configuration Guide.
