Lab Guide

Install Management Console


Record the name of the system assigned to you that will be installed as the management server:

Hostname: ______________________________________________________________

IP Address: ______________________________________________________________

Depot Path: eg: Z:\ManagementSoftware\: __________________________________

IP and Hostname of assigned HP 3PAR array:

_________________________________________________________________________

Note:
Ask your instructor if you are unable to locate the software depot.

1. Open the Management Software source folder from the classroom share. Locate the
IMC_4_3_0 folder. Then the windows folder under that. Copy the setup file over to the
local desktop (makes the installation process quicker).

program is located. Under normal circumstances this is
(x86)\3PAR\inform_cli_3.1.2\bin\. If you are using the HPVL then you will find the
license file that corresponds to your InServ in the (\\depot\3par\licenses) this should
be mapped as drive Z:\Licenses in the hpvl environment.
2. Copy the license file to the
C:\Program Files(x86)\3PAR\inform_cli_3.1.2\bin directory.
3. Add the licensed features by issuing the following command:
cli% setlicense f inserv0xx.dat (where inserv0xx is the array name
assigned to you).

NOTE: if you get the following message:

New license key is identical to the old one Current license unchanged.

Proceed on to the next step of the lab.

Host Configuration
Lab 9

Objectives
After completing this lab, you should be able to perform the following tasks:
Prepare the hosts to receive storage from the array
Discover the WWN for each HBA that is part of your storage environment.
Configure hosts for storage exportation within the Management Console GUI
Using the CLI when working with hosts and storage
Export and Unexport VLUNs to/from a host
Remove a host from the storage system

Introduction
The purpose of the lab is to give you some experience preparing hosts for an array VLUN
presentation. Certain hosts must have Fibre Channel HBA tools and drivers loaded to enable
the supported configuration. You will:
Locate the necessary tools for the installed HBA(s)
Collect FC HBA WWN information from each client
Create host profiles and register their WWNs
Export storage to a host

Windows Multi-Pathing/Native MPIO

! Important

MPIO software is required in any configuration in which a single host has more than
one data path connection to the external storage array. Without MPIO software
installed, the multiple paths to the array would cause ghost drives to appear in the
disk management utility. This would also lead to not being able to format or mount
logical disks. Once MPIO software is installed, it should not be removed unless only
one data path exists between the host server and the external storage array.

1. On your Windows host, right click on the Computer icon and choose Manage.
Expand Diagnostics and select Device Manager. In the pane on the right, expand
Disk Drives. Notice the HP 3PAR VLUNs are not yet displayed. Right click on Disk
Drives and select Scan for Hardware Changes.

Working with Virtual Copy Using Management


Console GUI
Make sure that you have at least two CPGs created from a previous lab exercise. The Raid
1/NL CPG will be used for the base and the NL/Raid 6 CPG will be used for the copy space
CPG for the VCs you will create.

Ensure that you have a VV/VLUN exported to your host (thin or fully provisioned) that will act as
the base. If you do not, do so now. Also ensure that this volume (the base) has the Copy
CPG set up. If it does not right click on the VV and Edit to set that up now.

the VLUN data to ensure that is contains the same data in the base.
6. On your RW Virtual Copy add some data to it (ensuring that the data in the VC and
base are different).
7. From Windows Disk Manager right click on the physical disk number for both the Base
and the VC and choose Offline.
8. Return to the Management Console and unexport the RW Virtual Copy and the base

Use the base volume from the Virtual Copy portion of this lab as the base volume for your
physical copies for this part of the lab. Ensure that the volume that will act as your base is
exported to your host and that the VLUN is mounted and has data.

NOTE: your VLUN/host should be in that state if you completed all steps from the Working
with Physical Copy Using Management Console GUI portion of this lab.

1. In Management Console create a VV that is the same size or larger as the volume that
will act as your base. Ensure that this VV has copy space defined. Do not export this
volume to a host.

This VV will act as your destination volume for your physical copy.
