    Sun Storage 7110 networking woes

    Hi all

    I've just managed to get my 7110 up and running and i've broken it already, I changed to IP to a static and could log into the BI ok then I added a second connection (card 1) and clicked 'something' it came up with a message saying 'configuring network' or similar and now I can't get back into it ooops, it's not on the static IP or the address in DHCP now

    Is there a way to reset the network card to DHCP using SSH or to view the current settings?

    Thanks.

    Are you able to get in to it through the serial interface? If you can get a terminal prompt, you can probably run the setup command from the manual to view the network configuration.

    Hi

    I couldn't get the serial connection to work but I can SSH into the service interface and login but I don't get the interface config options that I received the first time, is there a another command that I need to run?

    I've noticed this on a page about the 7110

    This new product however suffers of its young age, some 'crashes' of the manager occured when reloading pages during configuration changes. In such cases, the services need to be restarted manually in command line through SSH.
    So i'm thinking the services might need to be restarted manually in the command line through SSH.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    In the manual (page 37) there is a command "start /SP/console" which ran the interface config menu when I ran it, but that might only work before the interface has been configured for the first time.

    Yep I tried that but it doesn't give you those options the second time.

    Well, my limited linux knowledge led me to try running ifconfig which gave me this message:

    error: invalid command "ifconfig" (try "configuration net interfaces show" to
    view the network interface summary, and "configuration net" subcommands
    to configure networking)

    What happens if you type either of those configuration commands?

    • Log in to the service processor via SSH
    • Type 'start /SP/console'
    • Log in to the appliance when prompted
    • Type 'configuration net interfaces'
    • Type 'show' (this lists your interfaces)
    • Type 'select <interface name>'
    • Type 'set v4dhcp=true'
    • Type 'commit'


    Easy... incidentally, you can set all sorts of stuff in there... I like the CLI

    Easy when you know how you mean..(edit) gah Cookie Monster beat me to that line My 7110 only arrived on Wednesday so I haven't had much chance to play. In fact I've spent most of the time battling Microsoft iSCSI Initiator because of my own inexperience. (CHAP authentication is for the target, not when adding a portal.. and don't use dynamic disks. D'oh.)

    @nutso... iSCSI isn't too great on the 7110 - NFS rocks though

    Oh, can you present a LUN to a Windows server via NFS?

    ---------------------------------------------------------

    I'm not having much luck here i login to the SP
    Type 'start /SP/console'
    login then type 'configuration net interfaces'
    then it says you are not authorised to administer this appliance.

    I've tried 'changeme' as a password and the one that I thought i'd changed it too.

    Does hitting the factory reset option in the SP just restore the SP? I'd like to reset the unit and start again but I can't seem to do it through SSH.

    Anyone know or will I have to call Sun?

    Does hitting the factory reset option in the SP web interface just restore the SP? I'd like to factory reset the 7110 unit and start again but I can't seem to do it through SSH.

    @cookie_monster: For NFS on Windows see How to install Client for NFS on Windows for a UNIX-to-Windows migration (I'd use CIFs though unless you MUST have block level access)

    To do a factory reset, could you not just use the CLI (via the SP) to create an interface and then hit the button in the web interface?

    I can't get into the BUI at all which is part of the problem and the SP won't let me reset the networking, I can login to the SP but when I run the 'configuration net interfaces' command that you posted it says I don't have the necessary rights.
