The Storage Device Launcher application is required to run Hitachi Device Manager - Storage Navigator (HDvM - SN) with Adobe AIR from HARMAN. Storage Device Launcher is included in the Web Console Launcher setup file on the SVP. Use the following procedure to download and install Storage Device Launcher on the management client.

Note: If you use other management software to access HDvM - SN (for example, Hitachi Ops Center Administrator), install Storage Device Launcher as a user with administrator permissions on the management client.
Note: If you are using one management client to access multiple storage systems, you only need to install Storage Device Launcher on the management client once.
  • To use HDvM - SN with Adobe AIR, SVP firmware version 90-04-01/00 or later is required.
  1. Download the Web Console Launcher setup file for Windows from the SVP to the management client.
    • If you can log in to HDvM - SN by using a web browser, click Tool > Download in the HDvM - SN menu bar, and then download the Web Console Launcher setup file for Windows (WCLauncher_win.zip).
    • If you cannot log in to HDvM - SN by using a web browser, download the Web Console Launcher setup file as follows:
      1. Open a web browser on the management client, and enter the following URL:
        https://IP-address-or-host-name-of-SVP/sanproject/ToolDownload
        Note: If the SVP firmware version is 90-04-01/00, or between 90-04-01/00 and 90-04-03/00 (excluding 90-04-03/00), enter the following URL instead:
        https://IP-address-or-host-name-of-SVP/tool/tooldownload.html

        After the download page opens, go to step (c).

      2. In the authentication window, enter the user name and password.
      3. Download the Web Console Launcher setup file for Windows (WCLauncher_win.zip).
    Note: When you download a file, make sure to click Save within 30 minutes after the window for selecting a download destination folder appears. If you click Save after 30 minutes have elapsed, an error message (20121-107091) appears. If this error message is displayed, retry downloading the file.
  2. Expand the downloaded Web Console Launcher setup file.
    Make sure to expand the setup file in a folder or directory that meets the following requirements:
    • Use only 1-byte alphanumeric characters for the expanded folder or directory name.
    • Use an expanded folder (excluding directly under C: drive) that can be accessed (Read/Write) by management client users who do not have administrator permissions.
    • If you are installing Storage Device Launcher two or more times on the same management client, expand the setup file each time in the same folder or directory (the one used for the initial installation). If you expand the setup file in a different folder or directory from the first installation, other users will not be able to run Storage Device Launcher.
    Note: If a security warning or a window blocking the operation is displayed, do not expand the setup file. Change the properties of the setup file as follows and then expand the file:
    1. Right-click WCLauncher_win.zip, and then click Properties.
    2. In Security, select Unblock, and then click OK.
  3. Install Storage Device Launcher as follows:
    • If you are logged in to the management client with administrator permissions, right-click WCLauncher_win\WCLauncher\Setup_SDLauncher.bat, and run it by selecting Run as Administrator.
    • If you are not logged in to the management client with administrator permissions:
      1. Right-click WCLauncher_win\WCLauncher\Setup_SDLauncher.bat, and then click Create Shortcut.
      2. Move the created shortcut onto the desktop.
  4. Open WCLauncher_win\WCLauncher\log\Setup.log with a text editor, and confirm that "completed" is displayed.
    CAUTION:
    Do not move or delete the WCLauncher_win folder after Storage Device Launcher installation is complete. This folder contains files required for running Storage Device Launcher.
After installing Storage Device Launcher on the management client, you can log in to HDvM - SN using AIR. For instructions, see Logging in to HDvM - SN by using AIR.
