Using EZPilot Manager


Introduction
Emulexs EZPilot Manager provides a simple configuration and management tool for managing a Storage Area Network (SAN). The EZPilot Manager utility enables you to discover and check the status of local and remote Emulex HBAs, hosts, switches, storage devices and logical drives (LUNS) contained in the SAN. EZPilot Manager enables you to: Add, expand, rename or delete a logical drive. Assign a logical drive to a host. Create, initialize, format and assign a path to a logical drive. Monitor the EVA. Configure and monitor switches. View an HBAs attributes. Reset an HBA. Enable and disable an HBAs BootBIOS. Update the BootBIOS on an HBA. Update the firmware on an HBA.

Note: Do not run EZPilot Manager and Command View concurrently. Running both applications concurrently may cause inaccurate discovery information to be displayed.

The EZPilot Manager Window


The EZPilot Manager window contains five basic components: the menu bar, the toolbar, the discoverytree, the property tabs and the status bar.

Figure 11: The EZPilot Window with Element Call Outs (Storage View with storage device selected.)

Note: The element you select in the discovery-tree determines whether a menu item or Toolbar icon is active. For example, if you select the local host or other system host, the Reset Adapter item on the Adapter menu is unavailable. The Reset Adapter Toolbar button is unavailable as well.

The Menu Bar


The Menu bar contains command menus that enable you to perform a variety of tasks such as exiting EZPilot Manager, resetting HBAs and sorting items in the discovery-tree view. Many of the Menu bar commands are also available from the Toolbar. The File menu enables you to exit EZPilot Manager. The View menu enables you to turn off and on the Toolbar, Status Bar, and Item Help Tips. You can also choose to display discovered elements starting from the Storage Devices, Hosts, Switches or Local HBAs Only options (see The Toolbar on page 14). You can also enable or disable Advanced Mode.
Note: You must be in Advanced Mode to see the Maintenance tab, update an HBAs firmware/BIOS and to manage a switch.

The Adapter menu enables you to reset a selected adapter (see Resetting an HBA on page 28), edit its name (see Editing an HBAs Name on page 29) or use its default name (see Reverting to an HBAs Default Name on page 29). The Discovery menu enables you to modify discovery properties (see Modifying Discovery Properties on page 17) and to refresh the discovery.

EZPilot - Management Section

Page 13

The Help menu displays the EZPilot Manager version as well as tech support and system information.

The Discovery-Tree
The discovery-tree (left pane) has icons representing discovered network (SAN) elements such as arrays, switches, hosts, logical drives and HBAs.

Figure 13: The EZPilot Discovery-Tree (Host View)

Discovery-Tree Icons
Discovery-tree icons represent the following:

The root of the discovery-tree in Storage View.

The root of the discovery-tree in Host View.

The root of the discovery-tree in Switch View. The local host. Other hosts connected to the fabric.

A green HBA icon with black descriptive text represents an HBA that is online. An HBA icon with a red X represents an HBA that is offline or otherwise temporarily inaccessible. Several situations could cause the HBA to be offline or inaccessible: The HBA on a local host is not connected to the SAN, but is still available for local access.

EZPilot - Management Section

Page 15

The HBA on a local host is malfunctioning and is inaccessible to the local host as well as to the SAN. The HBA on a local host is busy performing a local firmware download and is temporarily inaccessible to the local host as well as to the SAN. The HBA is being reset or its firmware is being updated.

A grey HBA icon represents an HBA that was removed from the fabric. It will remain in the discovery-tree for thirty minutes after it is removed, unless you change the discovery properties. (See Modifying Discovery Properties on page 17 for more information.) The HBA will disappear from the discovery-tree when EZPilot Manager is exited and restarted.

The Switch icon represents connections to the switch.

The Target icon represents connections to individual targets.

The Logical Drive icon represents connections to individual logical drives.

The Storage icon represents connections to individual storage devices.

Property Windows and Property Pages


The property windows and pages display configuration, statistical and status information for selected SAN elements. The set of available property windows and pages is context-sensitive, depending on the type of element selected in the discovery-tree and the mode in which the utility is running.

Status Bar
The status bar is visible by default. Use the Status Bar item in the View menu to hide the status bar. If the item is checked, the status bar is visible.

Discovering SAN Elements


Hosts, HBAs, switches, storage devices and logical drives are discovered automatically by a discovery server when you launch EZPilot Manager. Discovered SAN elements are displayed in the discoverytree.

EZPilot - Management Section

Page 16

Modifying Discovery Properties


You can modify the way discovery is performed using the HBA Discovery Properties dialog box. You can define when discovery is performed, how often the information is refreshed and when to remove expired HBAs.

Figure 14: The HBA Discovery Properties dialog box

The HBA Discovery Properties dialog box displays the following information: Discovery Server Startup - The discovery server can be set to start when the system boots or when EZPilot Manager is run for the first time after the system boots. If it is set to start the first time EZPilot Manager is run, there may be a slight delay before the discovery-tree is populated. Refresh Rate - The discovery server periodically runs discovery cycles to detect new HBAs and targets. The refresh rate determines how often this should be done. If Manual Refresh is enabled, you must click Discovery Refresh on the Toolbar to update the discovery-tree.
Note: Because of limitations with the Storport driver, EZPilot Manager does not automatically detect HBAs or targets that were removed from the SAN. In this case, you must manually refresh the discovery-tree by clicking Discovery Refresh on the Toolbar.

Expire Undiscovered HBAs - If the discovery cycle detects that an HBA is no longer available, you may not want it to be removed from the discovery-tree immediately. For example, the state may be momentary, such as when an HBA is being reset or its firmware is being updated. In this case you would check the Never Remove checkbox.
Note: The undiscovered HBA will be removed from the discovery-tree if you exit and restart EZPilot.

You can also set the number of seconds by which to delay removing the HBA from the discovery-tree. The default delay is 30 minutes (1800 seconds).

Troubleshooting
Introduction
There are several circumstances in which your system may operate in an unexpected manner. This chapter provides information regarding these situations. If you have problems during or after installation, contact your supplier.

EZPilot Manager Cannot See Other HBAs or Hosts


Situation: Although EZPilot Manager is installed, only local HBAs are visible. The other HBAs and hosts in the SAN cannot be seen. Resolution: The server running EZPilot Manager must have a physical FC connection to the SAN. All Emulex HBAs in the SAN will be visible if: 1. The installation procedure described in the EZPilot User Manual was followed. 2. The other HBAs are Emulex HBAs. 3. Full Remote or Local Plus management is enabled on the other hosts. (See the appropriate HBA driver manual for information about Management Mode.)

Cannot See New LUNs (Windows)


Situation: Although new LUNs were created on the storage array, they do not appear in EZPilot Manager. Resolution: Refresh the screen.

EZPilot - Troubleshooting Section

Page 50

Cannot See New LUNs or Targets (Linux)


Situation: The HBAnyware utility does not see the targets or LUNs on the storage array. Resolution: Exit HBAnyware and restart the application. Ensure the lpfc driver module is loaded by running lsmod from a terminal window. If the driver module is not loaded, type:

#> insmod lpfc


to load the driver. If the lpfc driver is loaded and HBAnyware still does not see any targets, exit HBAnyware and type:

#> killall elxdiscoveryd

To add a second switch: 1. Cable the new switch in an HA configuration and add it to the EZPilot SAN. 2. Open EZPilot Manager on the management host. 3. The discovery cycle will recognize the new switch and add it to the discovery tree. 4. Click on the new switch. You are prompted to set the switch's IP address, subnet mask and gateway. Enter the required information and click OK. A dialog box appears confirming that the switch has been successfully configured.

Adding a Second Disk Shelf


There are two ways to add a second disk shelf: Adding New Disks to a New Disk Group Adding New Disks to the Existing Default Disk Group

Adding New Disks to a New Disk Group


All of the disks in a disk group must be of the same type (FC or FATA). At least 8 disks must be added in the second disk shelf to create a complete new disk group. To add new disks to a new disk group: 1. Close EZPilot Manager on the management server and power down the EVA4100. 2. Add the new shelf and associated disks to the EVA and the controllers' drive loops. Follow the instructions in the EVA User Guide, which can be found on the HP Web site. 3. Power on the EVA4100. 4. Modify a Windows account to make it a member of the HP Storage Admins group if this has not already been done. 5. Run Command View on the management server. To do this, double-click on the desktop Command View EVA icon and log in to Command View using the Windows account that is a member of the HP Storage Admins group. 6. In the left pane of the Command View Web page, click on the array name under Storage Systems to expand the tree of array properties. 7. In the tree, click the Disk Groups folder to expand it. Then click the Ungrouped Disks folder. You should see all of the newly added disks from the second shelf. 8. Under Disk Groups click on Create Group in the right pane. Enter a name and save it.

9. Click again on Ungrouped Disks. Click on each disk and then click Group in the right pane. Select the new disk group that was just created to add that disk into it. Click Save after you have done this for each disk. 10. Close Command View and open EZPilot Manager. Click on the storage array in the discovery tree and click Physical Disks in the right pane. All drives on both the first and second disk shelves will now be listed and available for LUN allocation.

Adding New Disks to the Existing Default Disk Group


All of the new disks must be of the same type (FC or FATA) as those in the default disk group. There is no minimum number of disks to be added to the existing default disk group which already has the minimum 8 disks that are needed. To add the new disks to the existing default disk group: 1. Close EZPilot Manager on the management server and power down the EVA4100. 2. Add the new shelf and associated disk drives to the EVA and the controllers' drive loops. Follow the instructions in the EVA User Guide, which can be found on the HP Web site. 3. Power on the EVA4100. 4. Modify a Windows account to make it a member of the HP Storage Admins group if this has not already been done. 5. Run Command View on the management server. To do this, double-click on the desktop Command View EVA icon and log in to Command View using the Windows account that is a member of the HP Storage Admins group. 6. In the left pane of the Command View Web page, click on the array name under Storage Systems to expand the tree of array properties. 7. In the tree, click the Disk Groups folder to expand it. Then click the Ungrouped Disks folder. You should see all of the new disks from the second shelf. 8. Click on each drive in the left pane and then click Group in the right pane. Select the default disk group to add that drive into the existing default disk group. Click Save after you have done this for each drive. 9. In the left pane, click Default Disk Group again. In the right pane there is a status indicator called Leveling Progress. Use the button provided to refresh this information until it reads "100%" and is complete. 10. Close Command View and open EZPilot Manager. Click on the storage array in the discovery tree and click Physical Disks in the right pane. All drives on both the first and second disk shelves will now be listed and available for LUN allocation.
