Storage Advisor Embedded User Guide

Part Number
Supported storage systems:
  • VSP G130, G/F350, G/F370, G/F700, G/F900
Creates a server managed by Storage Advisor Embedded. To execute this command, you need to log in to the storage system with the user account belonging to the user group to which "all resource groups" are set. In addition, you must be able to perform operations with all implemented resource groups. Therefore, this command cannot be executed if any of the following conditions is met:
  • The command device belonging to a resource group other than meta_resource is used in the in-band management.
  • The virtual storage machine that contains only some of the implemented resource groups is specified as HORCM_VCMD in the configuration file.
Note: If a failure occurs in a processor on an MP blade or a controller, this command cannot be run even on an MP blade or a controller on which no failure occurs.

When you run this command, the processing is run asynchronously with the command input. Verify that the processing is complete by using the raidcom get command_status command. There is a limit to the number of asynchronous commands that can be accepted simultaneously. For details, see Maximum number of acceptable asynchronous commands.
