Install Centralized Monitor Email-Home Webex Remote Access


.1

iesrs060_R005
Done

Overview
These procedures are for a new installation Centralized Monitor Email-Home with Webex remote
access using the latest released ESRS IP Client kit.
The ESRS IP Client remote support software kit uses InstallAnywhere installer to verify the customers
workstation environment install Navisphere/Unisphere monitoring agent, ConnectEMC, ACU, and
UDoctor. The installer discovers CLARiiON storage systems to monitor, configures
Navisphere/Unisphere monitor, ACU, and executes a test call home for all the systems in the
configuration.
This configuration is not customer installable and requires a Service Provider to follow these
procedures to install and implement this configuration. You will be required to manually configure a
ConnectEMC Email connection record.
Without internet access the user must enable the EMC_CLARALERT_NOINERNET option. With this
option enabled ConnectEMC connection records are not preserved and must be reconfigured. This
procedure will guide you through these tasks.

ESRS IP Client requirements


The version of ESRS IP Client software must be at or later than the version of the management
software bundled with the CLARiiON system that is being monitored.
ESRS IP Client installation requires:
Monitor station: The monitor station must be a host or virtual machine with a CPU speed of 1.0 GHz
or greater, have a total physical memory size of 2 GB or greater and 1 GB of hard disk space, must
be running a supported Windows operating system, have the .NET Framework version 2.0 installed,
and use the latest JRE version 1.6.0_xx (version 1.6.0_24 or later
Note: For the latest list of supported Windows operating systems, refer to the EMC ESRS IP Client
Release Notes.
ESRS IP Client Release Notes
If you do not have an existing monitor station You can create a monitor station by installing
ESRS IP Client on a Windows host.
If you have an existing monitor station running CLARalert You can upgrade to ESRS IP Client
on the monitor station. When you perform an upgrade, the wizard asks if you want to preserve your
existing email configuration or if you want to reconfigure it.
If you have an existing monitor station running event monitor You can install ESRS IP Client
on the monitor station.
Fixed or static IP address: The monitor station must have a fixed or static IP address. If DHCP is
used, a reserved IP address must be configured. The wizard automatically detects and configures the
ESRS IP Client with the IP address for the monitor station, which is required for ESRS IP Client
installation.
Open TCP Ports from the monitor station to your storage systems:
TCP port 80 (for HTTP, inbound/outbound)
TCP port 443 (for HTTPS, inbound/outbound)

TCP port 25 (for SMTP server, outbound)
TCP port 6389 (for Unisphere Host Agent, outbound)
TCP port 5414 (for EMCRemote Client, outbound)
TCP port 9519 (for RemotelyAnywhere on CX4 systems running FLARE version 04.29 or later
or on VNX systems, outbound)
TCP port 6391, 6392, and 60020 (for Remote Diagnostic Agent, outbound)
TCP port 22 (for CLI via SSH)
TCP port 13456 (for KTCONS)
TCP port 22 and 9519 (for RemoteKtrace)
TCP port 80, 443, 2162, 2163, and 8000 (for USM, Unisphere, and NaviSecureCLI)
Proxy server: If the monitor station connects to the Internet through a proxy server, you must indicate
this during ESRS IP Client installation and provide the IP address, port, and protocol (HTTPS or
SOCKS) for the proxy server. If the proxy server requires authentication (SOCKS is supported only
with authentication), you must also indicate this during installation and supply login credentials for the
proxy server. You must supply both username and password for authentication.
Powerlink account: You must have an existing and proper Powerlink account. You are required to log
in to the EMC Powerlink website and supply your valid storage-system serial number before you can
download and install ESRS IP Client software.
Registered monitoring site: The monitoring site must be registered on Powerlink. During ESRS IP
Client installation, you must specify contact information that includes the name, email address and
phone number of a person to contact at the monitoring site.
Portal system: The portal system must be a CLARiiON system running FLARE Release 22 or higher.
You must provide the IP address for either SP of the portal system during ESRS IP Client installation.
You must also supply global administrator login credentials for the portal system during installation.
Note: If your ESRS IP Client installation will use the optional email notification, for example, as a
backup communication method for the Call Home feature, you will need connectivity to an outgoing
SMTP server. You must provide the IP address for the SMTP server during ESRS IP Client
installation. You must also provide your email address (in the from field) for email notification.

Service Provider Powerlink Authentication Requirements:


Your EMC employee corporate login user name or your Authorized Service Provider Powerlink
user name (your company email as registered with EMC Powerlink).
Your EMC RSA SecureID FOB credentials.
Note: EMC Authorized Service Providers require an RSA SecureID two factor authentication token
(FOB) by EMC to download and install ESRS IP Client for CLARiiON. Contact your GS Partner
Relationship Manager to obtain an EMC RSA SecureID FOB.

Installer Overview
ESRS IP Client uses InstallAnywhereapplication that automates the installation and configuration.
You supply required configuration data elements and the program will install and configure all required
software components except ConnectEMC connection record for this configuration.

All installation error conditions will be clearly identified during the installation process. However, if you
need to examine the log file, the filename is esrsipclient_installer.log. It is located in C:\Documents
and Settings\Administrator\emc\ESRSIPClient directory.
.4

Workstation with no Internet access installation


For customer environments where the customers centralized monitoring workstation does not have
internet access the ESRS IP Client installer can be set to bypass this requirement. When the internet
access requirement is bypassed the installer does not authenticate the service provider, perform
system environment checks, download and install ESRS IP Device Client software, or auto configure
ConnectEMC. Only use the internet requirement bypass option if it is offered by a CPG procedure
configuration.
To bypass the ESRS IP Client installer Internet access requirement perform the following steps:
.a Login to the customers workstation as Administrator or a login with administrator privileges.
.b Open workstation Environment Variables panel; Start > Settings > Control Panel > System >
Advanced > Environment Variables

Before you begin


Do not install the ESRS IP client for VNX on an ESRS gateway server.

Before installing the ESRS IP client for VNX on a Windows 7 host with the Windows
firewall enabled, ensure TCP/IP port 6389 is open. TCP/IP port 6389 must be open to allow
the Unisphere Host Agent to function properly. If TCP/IP port 6389 is blocked, the
installation will fail because the client will not be able to communicate with the target
storage systems. The HostAgent.exe is located at C:\Program
Files\EMC\HostAgent\HostAgent.exe for 32 bit Windows versions and C:\Program Files
(x86)\EMC\HostAgent\HostAgent.exe for 64 bit Windows versions.
Also, the ESRS IP Client for VNX and the Unisphere Server for Windows cannot coexist on
the same server. A pre-installation check in the ESRS IP Client for VNX will prevent
installation of the ESRS IP Client for VNX on a system that already has the Unisphere
Server installed on it. If this is the case, uninstall the Unisphere Server before installing
the ESRS IP Client for VNX. The ESRS IP Client for VNX uses the presence of the registry
key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\EMC\Management Server to determine if the Unisphere
Server is installed. If that key is not removed by the Unisphere Server uninstaller, it can
prevent the ESRS IP Client for VNX from being installed. You can delete the key from the
registry by using regedit and then you should be able to install the ESRS IP Client for
VNX.

Run the ESRS IP Client Installation program:


.a Login to the customers workstation as Administrator or a login with administrator privileges.
.b Insert your IIG CD into the CD-ROM drive or start the ESRS IP Client for CLARiiON executable
