System Administrator Guide for VSP 5000 Series

Part Number

You can control the SMI-S function using the SMI-S provider configuration file that you create.

  • Ensure that the SMI-S provider configuration file has already been created. If the configuration is not already named array-setting-01.properties, rename it to that name.
  • You must have the Storage Administrator (View & Modify) role to perform this task.
  1. Close all Device Manager - Storage Navigator sessions on the SMI-S provider.
  2. On the Device Manager - Storage Navigator computer, open a web browser and enter the following URL to open the Tool Panel dialog box.
  3. In the Tool Panel dialog box, click Upload Configuration Files for SMI-S. The Login dialog box opens.
    If SSL communication has been established, the Security Alert dialog box opens before the Login dialog box. In the Security Alert dialog box, click OK to confirm and open the Login dialog box.
  4. In the Login dialog box, enter the administrator user ID and password, and click Login. The Upload dialog box opens.
  5. In the Upload dialog box, enter the SMI-S provider configuration file (array-setting-01.properties).
    Enter a file name in Configuration file or click Browse or Select File, and then select a file in the displayed dialog box. The name of the button to click depends on the browser.
  6. Click Upload. The execution confirmation dialog box opens.
  7. Click OK to update the configuration file. Update of the configuration file starts.
    Upon completion of the configuration file update, the SMI-S provider restarts to reflect the update. Upon completion of the restart of the SMI-S provider, the update completion dialog box for Upload Configuration Files for SMI-S opens.
  8. In the Upload Configuration Files for SMI-S dialog box, click OK. The display returns to the login dialog box.
    Note: If an error occurs during update of the certificate, an error message displays. Resolve the problem and then run the procedure again, starting with logging in, to upload configuration files for SMI-S.
    Note: If the Security Alert dialog box for the certificate opens at other times, click View Certificate to confirm that the certificate is correct and then click Yes.
