Storage configuration

The browser user interface

The BUI is the graphical tool for administration of the appliance. The BUI provides an intuitive environment for administration tasks, visualizing concepts, and analyzing performance data.

The management software is designed to be fully featured and functional on the following supported web browsers: Firefox 3.x, Internet Explorer 7 and 8, Safari 3.1 or later, and WebKit 525.13 or later.

Direct your browser to the system using either the IP address or host name you assigned to the NET-0 port during initial configuration as follows: https://ipaddress:215 or https://hostname:215. The login screen appears.

The online help linked in the top right of the BUI is context-sensitive. For every top-level and second-level screen in the BUI, the associated help page appears when you click the Help button.

Command Line Interface (CLI)

The CLI is designed to mirror the capabilities of the BUI, while also providing a powerful scripting environment for performing repetitive tasks. The following sections describe details of the CLI. When navigating through the CLI, there are two principles to be aware of:

You can combine these two principles, as follows:
