Access and Enable Sun Blade Zone Manager

Before You Begin

When enabled, the Sun Blade Zone Manager in Oracle ILOM provides a way of constraining which CPU blade servers within a SAS domain have access to storage resources (HDDs, FMODs, external SAS ports).

Before You Begin


Note - The presence of chassis storage blades in the Oracle ILOM web interface are not shown in the CMM Manage menu. Storage disks installed on storage blade servers are viewable from the System Information > Storage page. Oracle storage blade resource allocations are manageable from the System Management > SAS Zoning > Sun Blade Zone Manager Settings page.
  1. To access and enable the Sun Blade Zone Manager from the CMM web interface, perform these steps:
    1. Click System Management > SAS Zoning.

      The Sun Blade Zone Manager Settings page appears.

    2. Enable SAS Zoning by selecting the Enabled check box and clicking Save.

      After enabling the Sun Blade Zone Manager, you can create, view, and manage settings for SAS-2 zoning using Oracle ILOM interfaces.

      The following message might appear if the Oracle ILOM CMM services are still initializing:

      Sun Blade Zone Manager Not Ready
      The Sun Blade Zone Manager is initializing and not ready for .
      operation. Please wait several minutes and then refresh to check 
      the status
      

      If the above message appears, wait five minutes and then try again. You will need to close and reopen, or refresh the web interface page.

  2. To enable the SAS Zoning property from the CMM CLI, type:

    set /STORAGE/SAS_zoning zone_management_state=enabled

    • The following message appears.

      Enabling the Sun Blade Zone Manager will result in the clearing of all zoning configuration in the installed chassis SAS hardware, and any SAS disk I/O in progress will be interrupted.

      Are you sure you want to enable the Sun Blade Zone Manager (y/n)?

    • To continue, type: y

      The following message appears.

      Set 'zone_management_state' to 'enabled'

    • If the Oracle ILOM CMM is unable to initialize the Sun Blade Zone Manager, the following message appears:

      set: The Sun Blade Zone Manager is initializing and not ready for operation. Please wait several minutes and try again.

      If the above message appears, wait five minutes and retry the command.
