CHAPTER 6 Configuring IP Addressing In order for there to be an out-of-band Ethernet connection between the local management host and the array controllers. Perform the following procedures to ensure that the local management host and the array controllers have valid IP addresses: ■ Configure IP addresses for the array controllers (see “Configuring the IP Address of the Array Controllers” on page 94) Configure an IP address for the management host (see the Sun Storage Common Array Manager Software Installation Guide) ■ 93 . This chapter describes how to configure IP addressing on the local management host and the array controllers. the management host and the array controllers must have valid IP addresses. It contains the following sections: ■ ■ “About IP Addressing” on page 93 “Configuring the IP Address of the Array Controllers” on page 94 About IP Addressing The Sun Storage 6180 array is managed out-of-band by way of a standard Ethernet connection between the redundant array of independent disk (RAID) controllers and your management host.

168. An IP address assigned to an Ethernet port is held only as long as needed. Static IP addresses remain in effect until you modify or remove them or you change the method of IP addressing for the Ethernet port to DHCP. if the array controllers cannot find a DHCP server upon initial poweron. this server assigns a dynamic IP address for Ethernet port 1 on each controller.128. see one of the following sections: ■ ■ “Configuring Dynamic (DHCP) IP Addressing” on page 94 “Configuring Static IP Addressing” on page 95 Configuring Dynamic (DHCP) IP Addressing If BOOTP services are available on the DHCP server at initial array power on. the controller tray defaults to internal static IP addresses as described in “Configuring the IP Address of the Array Controllers” on page 94. refer to “Configuring a DHCP Server” on page 101 for a description of how to configure BOOTP services in Sun Solaris or Microsoft Windows environments. By default. By default.101 Ethernet port 1 of Controller B is assigned IP address 192.Configuring the IP Address of the Array Controllers You can configure two types of IP addressing for Ethernet port 1 of each array controller: ■ Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) IP addressing—IP addresses for Ethernet port 1 are assigned dynamically from a DHCP server running bootstrap protocol (BOOTP) services.102 To configure Ethernet port 1 on a controller with either dynamic or static IP addressing. Static IP Addressing—You assign a specific IP address to Ethernet port 1 of each controller. You can restore DHCP IP addressing to Ethernet port 1 of either controller in either of two ways: ■ Using the serial port interface (see “Using the Serial Port Interface to Assign IP Addresses” on page 95) Using the Sun Storage Common Array Manager (see the Sun Storage Common Array Manager Software Installation Guide) ■ 94 Sun Storage 6180 Array Hardware Installation Guide • May 2010 . an internal IP address is assigned to Ethernet port 1 of each controller: ■ ■ ■ Ethernet port 1 of Controller A is assigned IP address 192. this occurs automatically at initial poweron. If you want to set up a DHCP server.168. If a DHCP server is not available.128.

2. Chapter 6 Configuring IP Addressing 95 . Using the Serial Port Interface to Assign IP Addresses You can use the serial port interface on a controller to set the IP address for Ethernet port 1 on the controller. To use the serial port interface to configure IP addressing for Ethernet port 1 of each controller. To connect a terminal to the serial port of a controller: 1. Connect the RJ-45 connector of the serial cable to the serial port connector on the terminal. Two mini-DIN to RJ45 serial port cables are supplied with each controller tray. you must complete the tasks described in the following sections: ■ ■ “Connecting a Terminal to the Serial Port” on page 95 “Setting Up a Terminal Emulation Program to Connect to the Serial Port” on page 96 “Establishing a Connection With the Serial Port” on page 96 “Configuring the IP Addresses” on page 97 ■ ■ Connecting a Terminal to the Serial Port You will establish a serial connection to each controller. Connect the 6-pin mini-DIN connector of the serial cable to the serial port connector on the controller (FIGURE 1-5). Controller A and Controller B.Configuring Static IP Addressing There are two methods of assigning static IP addresses to the Ethernet ports of a controller: ■ The serial port interface (see “Using the Serial Port Interface to Assign IP Addresses” on page 95) The Common Array Manager (see the Sun Storage Common Array Manager Software Installation Guide) ■ Note – It is recommended that you use the serial port interface to assign IP addresses to Ethernet port 1 of each controller. if possible.

You must be sure when you move an array that you change the array’s IP addresses to IP addresses on the new subnet before setting up BOOTP services. ■ Are the RAID controllers set up for BOOTP access? It is possible that they were previously configured to have static IP addresses. but they cannot respond out of the subnet for the software if the gateway is not configured properly.

2.APPENDIX B Disk Drive Insertion This appendix describes how to properly insert a disk drive into a controller or expansion tray. Drives are inserted with the power on. unless specifically instructed not to by Sun technical support. 111 . Lift the drive handle up to open it. When the handle starts to move itself downwards. push the disk drive handle down. 3. This will crank the disk drive the rest of the way into the chassis. The correct way to insert a disk drive into the tray is as follows: 1. Push the disk drive into the chassis by slowly pushing against the drive housing until the drive handle engages with the chassis.

FIGURE B-1 shows a drive being inserted into the chassis the correct way. FIGURE B-1 Inserting a Disk Drive 112 Sun Storage 6180 Array Hardware Installation Guide • May 2010 .

When the drive is completely installed, the drive and handle will be flush with the others, as shown in FIGURE B-2.
FIGURE B-2

Caution – Do not insert a disk drive into a tray by pushing on its housing until it is
all the way in. This can cause the handle to be stuck in the “up” position so it is unable to close.
