Use Ops Center Administrator to add servers so you can attach volumes. You can add multiple server parameters from a file, or add one server at a time.

There are two methods of adding servers:
  • Manually add information for one server at a time.
  • Import a CSV (comma-separated values) file with information for one server in each row.

    The CSV file must have the following headings, in the order specified: Name, Description, IPAddress, OSType, WWNs (comma separated list of WWNs), WWNsUserDefinedNames (comma-separated list of user-defined names for WWNs). All fields are required except Description, IPAddress and WWNsUserDefinedNames.Valid OSType values are as follows:

    • AIX
    • HP_UX
    • LINUX
    • OVMS
    • TRU64
    • VMWARE
    • WIN
    • WIN_EX
  1. On the Ops Center Administrator dashboard, click Servers. Then click the plus sign (+) to open the Add Server page.
    Note: FC-NVMe and iSCSI are not currently supported for high availability.

  2. In the Add Server window, do one of the following:
    • Click the upper plus sign (+) to browse for the CSV file or drag the file to the plus sign. The values from the file populate the window. Example:
      Esxi,ESXI HOST,,VMWARE_EX,10:00:00:05:33:26:f7:21,Esxi_HBA_1
      ESXi_Cisco_1,ESXi HOST connected to Cisco
      ESXi_Cisco_2,ESXi HOST connected to Cisco
    • Click the plus sign (+) in the table to add a row and enter the required information for Fibre Channel. You can add more servers by clicking the plus sign again.
    • (Optionally) You can use the WWN List to add/edit a server.
    • (Optionally) You can add comma-separated user-defined names for WWNs names in the order they are specified.
  3. Click Submit to add the servers.

Create volumes and attach them to the server.
