Changing the IP address of a managed server

Server and Cluster Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number
If the IP address of a managed HNAS server has been changed without using the SMU interface (for example, if the server’s IP address was changed using the CLI or the console), you can update the IP address used by the SMU to communicate with the managed server.
Note: Updating the IP Address of a managed server does not actually change the IP address of the server, rather it tells the SMU the new IP address of the server. Updating the managed server’s IP address does not interrupt management or delete completed replications or data migrations.
  1. Navigate to Home > SMU Administration > Managed Servers.

    SMU Administration Managed Servers

    Field/Item Description
    IP IP address of the server. This should be the Administration Services IP address, as used on the private management network (for example, 192.0.2.x).
    Server Username User name of the NAS server.
    Model Displays the NAS server model number. For a cluster with different server models, this field displays “mixed”, and the specific server models can be displayed in the Cluster Configuration page.
    Cluster Type Cluster type (for example, Node or Clustered).
    Status The color indicates the current status of the server:
    • Green indicates that the server is operating normally (not showing an alert condition).
    • Amber indicates a warning (operating normally, however, action should be taken to maintain normal operation).
    • Red indicates a critical condition (the server is no longer functioning properly).
    details Opens Modify Managed Server page, which contains detailed information about contacting or managing the server.
    Set as Current Makes the currently selected server or cluster the currently managed server/cluster.
