As my 2015 resolution I decided to write a little bit more with practice examples of some day-to-day tasks that you can come across when working with Storage Arrays. Lately I have posted a quick introduction to EMC VNX, if you haven’t read it yet, give it a try: EMC VNX – Unisphere – Quick overview. Today I would like go to thru the process of creating a Storage Group, masking a LUN and connecting a host. Those are basics steps to actually privision the storage from EMC VNX. So, let’s start Create a LUN First step is to create a LUN.

Unisphere Storage menu Once you choose the option you should see list of all your LUNs already created and at the bottom of the screen you will find ‘Create’ button Unisphere – LUN section You can personalize the view of the table or export it for example to CSV and more. Create new LUN Of course your view won’t be identical. The basic things you should fill and understand is : Do you want Pool LUN or RAID Group LUN? That’s it. Connect a Host Unisphere Host menu. EMC VNX/MCx Storage Pool Expansion – NavisecCLI or Unisphere | Pragmatic IO. Storage Pool Expansion on EMC VNX/MCx arrays is a simple, straightforward task that can be done to increase capacity, performance or both. It is an online operation (NDU) but I always try to initiate it when load on an array is non-peak. The process is just like a Fast VP data relocation. Of course there’s more than one way to do this task, the GUI way and the fun way with CLI!

Method 1 . Naviseccli. This utilizes the storagepool command with the –expand option. In my case I will be expanding Storage Pool ID # 4 with 5 x disks in 2_1_10 :14 into an existing Performance tier. ( I can omit the –rtype option to choose a RAID type). Syntax; naviseccli –h array-spa storagepool –expand –id 4 –disks 2_1_10 2_1_11 2_1_12 2_1_13 2_1_14 And we’re off. Naviseccli -h array-spa storagepool -list -id 4 -all | select-string -pattern 'Rebalance Percent Complete' To watch it progress in actual time, you can use the following Powershell script snippet to call and filter the naviseccli command; In action;

EMC VNX – New Shutdown Options | David Ring. A new feature with the release of VNX Rockies(Block OE 5.33 & File OE 8.1) was the ability to Shutdown the Entire Array using either a single command or via the ‘Power Off’ button in the Unisphere GUI. This feature is also available for first generation VNX storage system’s, from VNX OE code release & onwards. These options are supported on Unified, Block and File systems. Power Off via CLI The new CLI option extends the nas_halt command to include a new switch to power down the entire system :nas_halt –f –sp now This will power off Control Stations, Data Movers and the Storage Processors. usage: nas_halt [-f] [-sp] now Perform a controlled halt of the Control Station(s) and Data Mover(s) -f Force shutting down without prompt -sp Shut down Storage Processors on unified platforms Power Off via Unisphere From Unisphere GUI navigate to the System List page: Final Confirmation: Like this: Like Loading...

Navisphere Cheat Sheet. EMC – SECCLI Résolution LUN locked | Tutoriaux Informatiques. EMC CLARiiON (NaviCLI) data source. Before configuring this data source, make sure that the EMC Navisphere CLI is installed on the target device and on the Insight server. The Navisphere CLI version must match the firmware version on the controller. For performance data collection, statistics logging must be turned on. NaviSphere Command Line Interface syntax naviseccli.exe -h <IP address> -user <user> -password <password> -scope <scope,use 0 for global scope> -port <use 443 by default> command Configuration Requirements An IP address of each CLARiiON storage processorRead-only Navisphere username and password to the CLARiiON arraysAccess validation: Run NaviCLI from the Insight server to each array using the above username and password.NaviCLI version should correspond with the newest FLARE code on your array3rd party software installed on Insight server/RAU: navicli Advanced configuration Performance requirement Statistics logging must be turned on.

NaviSec CLI commands The following commands are invoked: Performance commands. Calriion NaviSecCLI Cheat Sheet - Security File Configure security file for a local user account (global scope): naviseccli -addusersecurity -scope 0 -password <password> -user <user_name> Configure security file for a LDAP user account: naviseccli -addusersecurity -scope 2 -password <password> -user <user_name> Remove user security information about the current user from the security file: naviseccli -removeusersecurity The security file is stored in the user's default home directory. Raid Groups Display raid group configuration: naviseccli -h <SP_IP> getrg -type -disks -drivetype -lunlist -tcap -ucap Create RAID10 raid group across 2 FC loops/shelves: The first two disks you list in the command form a pair of mirrored images, and the next two disks form another pair of mirrored images, and so on.

EMC VNX MirrorView configuration | Vipin V.K. [ Note : This site will soon go unavailable.

Visit for more posts. ] This time I am discussing here about MirrorView Configuration. Not something new but I believe there are not many posts available on internet discussing the steps to configure MirrorView. MirrorView is the replication technology used between EMC CLARiiON and VNX systems. I will use the name VNX01 for source storage system and VNX02 for the destination system here for convenience. Different wizards are available in Unisphere which makes things easy for storage admins. Once logged in to the Unisphere Manager (for VNX01) we will identify/create the source LUN (LUN01) to be replicated. We will then create the secondary LUN (LUN02) if it is not already created. Note : If we have to specify a specific name for LUN02, we will have to goto LUN02 properties in Unisphere for VNX02.

Once LUN01 and LUN02 are created, the next step will be to create a Remote Mirror. Now we have the mirror session created. Like this:
