Manually Create SAS-2 Zoning Allocations (CLI)

Before You Begin

  • Ensure that your chassis configuration meets the requirements in Chassis Hardware Requirements.

  • Admin (a) role privileges are required to manually create SAS zoning allocations in Oracle ILOM.

  • The Sun Blade Zone Manager must be enabled in Oracle ILOM.

  1. Access the Sun Blade Zone Manager from the CLI.

    For instructions, see Access and Enable Sun Blade Zone Manager .

  2. Use one of the following methods to allocate a storage resource to a CPU blade server:
    • Method 1: To assign a storage disk to a CPU blade server, use the following commands:

      -> cd /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BLn

      -> set add_storage_access=path_to_storage_disk

      Where BLn is the chassis slot number for the CPU blade server and path_to_storage_disk is the path to the storage blade disk that you want to assign to the CPU blade server.

      For example, to assign the hard disk drive in the storage blade slot location 0 to the CPU blade server in chassis slot location 1, you would type:

      -> set add_storage_access=/CH/BL1/HDD0.

    • Method 2: To assign CPU blade server to a storage resource, type:

      -> cd /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BLn/HDDn

      -> set add_host_access=path_to_blade_server

      Where BLn is the chassis slot location for the CPU blade server, HDDn is storage blade slot location for the hard disk drive, and path_to_blade_server is the CPU blade server target where you want to assign to the storage disk.

      For example, if you wanted to assign a hard disk drive within a storage blade server to a CPU blade server in the chassis, you would type:

      -> cd /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BL1/HDD0

      -> set add_host_access=/CH/BL0

    The following examples show how to use these commands to set up zoning assignments between storage devices on a storage blade in slot 1 and a server blade in slot 0.

    • Method 1 - Command examples for allocating storage resources to a CPU blade server:

      CLI Command Syntax Examples
      Instructions
      -> cd /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BL0
      1. Use the first command syntax example to access the CPU blade server that will be assigned a storage resource.

      2. Use the second command syntax example to allocate the storage module (HDD0) in the storage blade server (BL1) to the host CPU blade server (BL0) in chassis slot 0.

      3. Optionally, you can use the third command syntax to assign multiple devices in a single command line. Ensure that you specify the full path to the storage resource and separate each resource with a comma (no space).

      4. Use the show command to confirm that the storage allocations are saved to the CPU blade server (/CH/BL1/HD0 and CH/BL1/HDD1).

      -> set add_storage_access=/CH/BL1/HDD0
      -> set add_storage_access=/CH/BL1/HDD0,/CH/BL1/HDD1
      -> show
      /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BL0
      Targets:
      0 (/CH/BL1/HDD0)
      1 (/CH/BL1/HDD1)
    • Method 2 - Command examples for assigning a CPU server blade (BL0) to a storage blade resource (BL1/HDD0):

      CLI Command Syntax Examples
      Instructions
      -> cd /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BL1/HDD0
      1. Use the first command syntax example to access the storage resource (HDD0) installed in the storage blade server (BL1/HDD0).

      2. Use the second command syntax example to assign the storage resource (HDD0) to the host CPU blade server (BL0).

      3. Use the show command to confirm that the storage allocations are saved to the correct CPU blade server (/CH/BL0).

      -> set add_host_access=/CH/BL0
      -> show
      /STORAGE/sas_zoning/BL1/HDD0
      Targets:
      0 (/CH/BL0)
  3. Back up the newly saved server storage group.
