Prerequisites for monitoring HP 3PAR Storage Arrays
- OpStor uses HP 3PAR SMI-S provider for monitoring the Storage Array.
- The provider is by default embedded in the Storage Array.
- Ensure that the SMI-S provider is properly running.
- By Default, SMI-S provider embedded in HP 3PAR Storage Array would be disabled. Kindly enable it.
Steps to enable SMI-S provider
- Login to HP 3PAR Command Line Interface (CLI) using SSH.
- Enter the IP Address of HP 3PAR Storage Array, Username and Password (Default Credentials: 3paradm / 3pardata).
- Execute startcim command at the CLI to enable the SMI-S provider.
- Execute showcim, to know the current status of the SMI-S Provider.
- To restart the SMI-S Provider,
- Execute "stopcim –f –x"
- Then execute "startcim"
Prerequisites for monitoring HP 3PAR Storage Arrays SNMP Traps
Steps to add OpStor server IP address as trap destination
- Connect to HP 3PAR CLI with an Administrator Account.
- Execute the following command addsnmpmgr <OPSTOR_SERVER_IP>
- To register the manager with the agent, use the addsnmpmgr command followed by the manager’s IP address ie., addsnmpmgr <Manager_IP>
- If you need to use one of the following options, enter it after the command and before the IP address.
- -p <port_number> - Specifies the port number where the manager receives traps. The default port 162.
- -pw <password> - Specifies the manager’s access password, if the manager has one.
- -r <number> - Specifies the number of times the system will attempt to resend the trap if the manager is not available. You can specify from 1 to 15 retries. The default is 2.
- -t <seconds> - Specifies the number of seconds to wait between retries. You can set the timeout from 1 to 300 seconds. The default is 200.
NOTE: The InForm OS supports a maximum of 10 registered SNMP managers
- To view the Registered Manager, execute showsnmpmgr
- To send a test trap to all registered SNMP managers, use the command checksnmp. Please check the link for further clarification. Reference
