The Initial Setup wizard allows you to configure system information, date and time settings, and network settings.

The Initial Setup wizard settings are presented on three windows. Buttons at the bottom of each window allow you to apply or skip the settings on that window. If you skip settings, you can complete them later by running the Initial Setup wizard again. To display details about the settings in the windows, click the question mark icon in the bottom right.

Log in to Storage Advisor Embedded, and then open the maintenance utility by clicking the gear icon at the top-right corner and selecting User Administration.

  1. In the maintenance utility navigation tree, under Menu, click Initial Setup Wizard.
    Tip: Initial Setup Wizard is near the bottom of the navigation tree. If you do not see this selection, scroll down the tree.


  2. At the bottom, click Skip this step two times to bypass the Set Up System Information and Set Up Date & Time screens.
  3. In the Set Up Network Settings screen, enter the IPv4 or IPv6 configuration settings for the production network to which the storage system will be connected. For example:


    Setting Description
    Protocol IP addressing method to be used for configuring the storage system.
    MAC Address Read-only field that shows the MAC address for controllers 1 and 2.
    IPv4 Configuration/ IPv6 Configuration
    • IPv4 Address: IPv4 address of the production network to which the storage system will be connected (IPv4 only).
    • IPv6 Address: IPv6 address of the production network to which the storage system will be connected (IPv6 only).
    • Subnet Mask: IP address mask that identifies the range of IP addresses in the subnet to which the storage system will be connected.
    • Subnet Prefix Length: Subnet prefix length of the network to which the storage system will be connected (IPv6 only).
    • Default Gateway: IP address of the default gateway to which the storage system will be connected. The gateway is the IP address of the router used to communicate outside the local subnet.
    • DNS Server 1-3: If your configuration uses DNS to resolve IP addresses (for example, the IP address for the NTP server used with the storage system), enter up to three DNS IP addresses.
    Network Connection Mode Determines whether the storage system negotiates the speed and duplex mode automatically with the attached device. The default setting (Auto-Negotiation) connects the storage system at the highest speed and appropriate duplex setting supported by itself and the connected device.
    Option
    • DNS Domain Name: IP address of the DNS server that will perform address resolution.
    • DNS Search Order: Search domain names. Use the Up and Down buttons to order the domain names.
    • Maintenance Port: Do not change these values.
    • Internal Network: Do not change this value.
  4. Click Apply, and then click Close.
    The system logs you out.
  5. Remove the Ethernet cable from the management console and attach the cable to your production network. Leave the other end of the cable connected to the management port on the rear of the controller.


    Item Description
    1 Management port on the rear of controller 1
    2 Management console
    3 Production network
  6. Connect one end of another Ethernet cable to the management port on the rear of the other controller. Connect the other end of the cable to your production network.


    Item Description
    1 Management port on the rear of controller 2
    2 Management console
    3 Production network
  7. Wait 5 minutes for the maintenance utility to fetch the new IP addresses.
  8. Open a web browser, and log in to Storage Advisor Embedded again. Use the new IP address you specified in the Initial Setup wizard and the new password you specified for the maintenance user.
  9. In the top-right corner, click the gear icon, and then select User Administration.
  10. In the maintenance utility navigation tree, under Menu, click Initial Setup Wizard.
  11. Enter the system information, and then click Apply and Next.


    Setting Description
    Storage System Name Name used to identify the storage system. This name will appear in the maintenance utility, so use a name that is meaningful.
    Contact Name of the contact person associated with the storage system.
    Location Location of the storage system.
  12. Enter the date and time settings, and then click Apply and Next.


    Setting Description
    UTC Timezone Time zone in which the storage system is located.
    Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time If the time zone in which the storage system is located follows Daylight Saving Time, check this box to have the storage system automatically adjust its time twice a year.
    Use NTP Server
    Determines whether the storage system time is synchronized with an NTP server.
    • Yes: Synchronize system time with an NTP server. Enter the IP address or domain name of the NTP server. To add more than three servers, click the + Add NTP Server button. To synchronize the system time to the NTP server time now, check Synchronize immediately.
    • No: Do not synchronize system time with an NTP server. In Date & Time, enter the date and time that the storage system will use.
    Synchronizing Time To synchronize the storage system time with the NTP server at a specific time, enter the time when the two will be synchronized.
  13. Confirm or change the network settings that you entered earlier in this procedure, and then click Apply.


  14. When prompted that initial settings are complete, click Close.

(Optional) Configure syslog and SNMP notifications.
