In this section, you verify the configuration by running a REST API or CLI command from the controller node as the user that was created in Creating an initial user.

  1. Log in to the EC2 instance for a controller node.
  2. Change the password of the user created in the "ServiceAdministrators" user group, according to the procedure described in Creating an initial user. The parameters and values required to change the password are as follows:
    • userId: ID of the user created in the "ServiceAdministrators" user group

    • currentPassword: Password used when the user was created

    • newPassword: New password

    REST API: PATCH /v1/objects/users/<userId>/password

    CLI: user_password_set

  3. Obtain a list of event logs and verify that startup of the storage cluster is completed before confirming configuration.

    REST API: GET /v1/objects/event-logs

    CLI: event_log_list

    If the KARS08100-I message has been output to the event log, startup of the storage cluster is completed. Perform the following procedures to confirm each configuration.

  4. Obtain compute port information, and then verify the configuration. In the following steps, use the same credentials as in step 2.

    REST API: GET /v1/objects/ports

    CLI: port_list

    Verify the obtained information to make sure of the following.

    Obtained information

    Make sure that:

    Number of portSummary objects

    The number is the same as that of storage nodes selected for ConfigurationPattern in step 9 of Configuring a storage cluster.

    Value of protocol

    It is "iSCSI".

    Value of status

    The status value is "Normal".

    Value of subnetMask

    The number of bits of this value is the same as that of the net mask of the compute network subnet selected in step 9 of Configuring a storage cluster.

    Value of mtuSize

    It is "9000".

    The statusSummary value is "Normal".

  6. Obtain storage cluster information, and then verify the configuration.

    Value of softwareVersion from which periods (.) are excluded

    The value matches the version of VSP One SDS Block selected in step 5 of Configuring a storage cluster.

    Value of status

    The status value is "Ready".

    CAUTION:

    When building multiple VSP One SDS Block, also check the value of internalId.

    If the value of internalId is duplicated in any other VSP One SDS Block, perform the operation described in Removing the storage software in the VSP One SDS Block System Administrator Operation Guide. Then, perform the operation again from Configuring a storage cluster.

  7. Obtain storage node information, and then verify the configuration.

    REST API: GET /v1/objects/storage-nodes

    CLI: storage_node_list

    Verify the obtained information to make sure of the following:

    Obtained information

    Make sure that:

    Number of storageNode objects

    The number is the same as that of storage nodes selected for ConfigurationPattern in step 9 of Configuring a storage cluster.

    Value of status

    The status value is "Ready".

    Value of modelName

    The value is the same as that of StorageNodeInstanceType set in step 9 of Configuring a storage cluster.

    Value of memory

    The memory capacity is sufficient for the instance type you selected in step 9 of Configuring a storage cluster.

  8. Obtain fault domain information, and then verify the configuration.

    REST API: GET /v1/objects/fault-domains

    CLI: fault_domain_list

    Verify the obtained information to make sure of the following:

    Obtained information

    1

    Value of numberOfStorageNodes

    It is equal to the number of storageNode objects.

    Value of status

    Be "Normal"
