Finalizing and verifying the server configuration

NAS Platform and Unified Storage Series 4000 Hardware Reference

Part Number
On the new server:
  1. Navigate to Home > Status & Monitoring > System Monitor to verify the server status:

    • If the server is operating normally, and is not displaying any alarm conditions, run a backup to capture the revised configuration, and then download another diagnostic to support. Permanent license keys for the new server will be provided within 15 days.
    • If the server is not operating normally for any reason, contact support for assistance.
  2. Navigate to Home > Server Settings > Cluster Configuration to verify the cluster configuration status. Ensure that the cluster is shown as Online and Robust and has the correct number of nodes.

  3. Use CLI to verify that the new node has access to the System Drives. Use sd-list from the node that you have just replaced.
    For example: pn x sd-list where x is the node number in the cluster.
    FSS-HNAS-1:$ sd-list

  4. If EVS mapping or balancing is required, select the EVS to migrate, assign it to the preferred node, and then click migrate.

  5. To set the preferred node for any remaining EVSs, navigate to Home > Server Settings > EVS Management > EVS Details.

  6. Select the node from the Preferred Cluster Node list, and then click apply.
  7. Navigate to Home > Status & Monitoring > Event Logs, and then click Clear Event Logs.
  8. Confirm all final settings, IP addresses, customer contact information, service restarts, client access, and that customer expectations are all in place. Features such as replication and data migration should all be confirmed as working, and all file systems and storage pools should be online.
