Deploy Storage Libraries Workflow
12c Release 2 (126.96.36.199.0)
This workflow provides an end-to-end example for how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. Workflows are divided into two categories: Deploy and Operate. Each workflow is a compilation of several examples.
This Deploy workflow shows how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to deploy the storage infrastructure that stores the metadata of virtualization hosts and guests and for storing the data from operations.
The virtualization hosts and server pools store their metadata and their operational data in storage libraries. The storage libraries support Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle VM Servers for SPARC, Oracle VM Servers for x86, their server pools, guests, and virtual datacenters. The storage libraries are displayed in the Libraries section of the Assets pane, as shown in Figure 1.
A storage library can use file system or block storage:
Filesystem Storage: Filesystem storage libraries are either on a local filesystem on the Enterprise Controller or a share on an NFS server.
Block Storage: Stores groups of Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs) that you associate with the virtualization technologies. Block storage is backed by Fibre Channel disks or iSCSI disks in the form of LUNs. Block storage is either static or dynamic:
Static Block Storage: You use the storage device's user interface to create, edit, and delete the LUNs. You can use these LUNs in the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center software.
Dynamic Block Storage: You can use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to create, resize, delete, and clone LUNs. You create a dynamic block storage library when you use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to discover and manage a storage device that has iSCSI LUNs.
The following permissions and roles are required to complete the tasks in the workflow:
Before you begin this workflow, ensure that Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is installed and configured. The software libraries can be deployed during the installation or in a procedure at a later time.
Install and Configure the Enterprise and Proxy Controllers
At the end of this workflow, you will have storage libraries available as the storage resource for virtualization technologies. See the Deploy Hardware Workflow for the instructions to add assets.
