This section provides instructions for configuring the primary network interface using the preinstalled Sun ZFS Storage 7000 command line interface (CLI). After you configure the primary interface, configure the remaining system parameters using the browser user interface (BUI) from any client on the same network.
Gather the following information in preparation for configuring an Ethernet interface on the storage controller.
Domain Name Server (DNS) domain name
DNS server IP address
Default router IP address
If you will access the appliance through an administrative client, configure the administrative client with the following settings:
8N1: eight data bits, no parity, one stop bit
Disable hardware flow control (CTS/RTS)
Disable software flow control (XON/XOFF)
Refer to the Quick Setup poster that shipped with the product or the following sections in the Sun ZFS Storage 7000 Appliance Service Manual located on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks for an overview of your system controller.
In rare cases, faults associated with uncorrectable CPU errors are not diagnosable or displayed in the controller. These faults will be preserved by and observable on the ILOM. Connect to the server ILOM (Service Processor) on the server platform to diagnose hardware faults that do not appear in the BUI.
In a cluster environment, an ILOM connection should be made to each controller.
The server ILOM provides options for (i) network and (ii) serial port connectivity. Network connection is the preferred choice, as the ILOM serial port does not always allow adequate means of platform data collection.
WARNING : Failure to configure ILOM connectivity may lead to longer than necessary hardware fault diagnosis and resolution times.
You can access the system by connecting an administrative client to the serial management port on the controller. Alternatively, if there is a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server on the network, you can access the system by connecting the network management port to your network.
Note that if you are installing a cluster, configure only one controller initially. The software propagates the configuration to the peer controller during cluster initialization. After the cluster is initialized, you can administer the system from either storage controller. However, do not attempt initial configuration on both controllers independently. Refer to the Cluster documentation in the System Administration Guide located on http://wikis.sun.com/display/fishworks for more information.
For 7700/7720, ensure that the circuit breakers are in the OFF position before connecting the six power cords for the storage rack to wall sockets that are controlled by individual circuit breakers. Connect three of the circuit breakers to one power source, and connect the remaining three to a different power source. This is required to maintain power protection through redundant power sources. See Cabinet Electrical Specifications.
For 7700/7720, switch all of the wall circuit breakers to the ON position. Wait until the Power/OK LEDs light and remain lit.
Configure the remaining system parameters through the CLI after logging in, or through a browser running on any client on the same network as the initial interface. The management software is designed to be fully featured and functional on the following supported web browsers: Firefox 3.x, Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8, Safari 3.1 or later, and WebKit 525.13 or later.
