Set Up Celerra File Server

Perform the following tasks from the command prompt on the Celerra File Server using the following procedure:

Procedure

  1. Set permissions to archive and recover Unix data.

    On the Celerra file server, make sure that the CIFS path is mounted with read/write permissions on the CIFS share. In the Access-Checking Policy area, select the NATIVE option.

  2. Enable access to the data on the file server.

    The account you use must have read, write, and modify permissions for the data on the file server.

  3. Define the proxy computer where the Windows File System Agent is installed.
  4. Establish communication between the file server and the proxy computer.

    By default, port 5080 is used for the communication. Make sure that the port is open for access.

  5. Ensure that the Celerra file system is configured for CWORM=off.

    To verify if CWORM=off, run the following command:

    Syntax:

    nas_fs –info FileSystemName

    Example:

    [root@cs0vnx5300 nasadmin]# nas_fs -info FS_Automation

    Sample Output:

    id = 20

    name = FS_Automation

    acl = 0

    in_use = True

    type = uxfs

    worm = off

    volume = v126

    pool = clarsas_archive

    member_of = root_avm_fs_group_32

    rw_servers= server_2

    ro_servers=

    rw_vdms =

    ro_vdms =

    auto_ext = hwm=90%,thin=no

    fast_clone_level = 1

  6. Enable DHSM services on the File System share.

    Syntax:

    fs_dhsm –modify <file_system_name_where_share_resides> -state enabled

    Example:

    fs_dhsm –modify FS6 –state enabled

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <file_system_name_where_share_resides> refers to the name of the file system that is created on the Virtual Data Mover.

  7. Enable the DHSM services on the Celerra file server:

    Syntax:

    server_http <server_name_where_file_system_resides> -service dhsm -start

    Example:

    server_http server_4 -service dhsm -start

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <server_name_where_file_system_resides> refers to the physical data mover that the Virtual Data Mover points to.

  8. Disable the digest authentication on the Celerra file server:

    Syntax:

    server_http <server_name_where_file_system_resides> -modify dhsm -authentication none

    Example:

    server_http server_4 -modify dhsm -authentication none

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <server_name_where_file_system_resides> refers to the physical data mover that the Virtual Data Mover points to.

  9. Verify that the dhsm services have been enabled and the digest authentication has been disabled by running the following command on the file server:

    Syntax:

    server_http <server_name_where_file_system_resides> -info

    The correct values should be returned as follows:

    Active: True

    Authentication: none, Realm: DHSM_Authorization

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <server_name_where_file_system_resides> refers to the physical data mover that the Virtual Data Mover points to.

  10. Obtain the name and the IP address of the proxy computer and the computer on which the webconsole is installed.

    Type the following command to add the IP address of the proxy server and the computer on which the webconsole is installed to the list of valid target hosts:

    Syntax:

    server_http <server_name_where_file_system_resides> -append dhsm -hosts <IP_address_of_web_console_machine_>

    Example:

    server_http server_4 -append dhsm -hosts 172.19.97.208

    Where "server_4" is the name of the server where the file system resides, and where "172.19.97.208" is the IP address of the proxy server (in this example).

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <server_name_where_file_system_resides> refers to the name of the file system that is created on the Virtual Data Mover.

    Note:

    If the proxy and the webconsole are installed on different computers, then their IP addresses should be registered to the Celerra file server. Also, the two machines must be in the same domain as that of the Celerra file server.

    [root@celerra_cs nasadmin]# server_http server_4 -append dhsm -hosts 172.19.97.208

    server_4 : done

  11. Navigate to the command prompt and define a connection between the EMC Celerra file server and the computer on which the webconsole is installed. The EMC Celerra file server will use this connection to recall files. When you perform a Preview operation on a file, the file is recalled and the stub is replaced with the file on the file server.

    Important: Replace -read_policy_override with -read_policy_override passthrough, if you do not want the stubs to be replaced with the file when you perform a Preview operation on the file server.

    HTTP Syntax:

    • fs_dhsm -connection <file_system_name_where_share_resides> -create -type http -secondary <http://machine_name> -read_policy_override full -cgi n -user <domain\\username> -password <user_password>
    • fs_dhsm -connection <file_system_name_where_share_resides> -create -type http -secondary <http://machine_name> -read_policy_override passthrough full -cgi n -user <domain\\username> -password <user_password>

    HTTP Example:

    fs_dhsm -connection FS6 -create -type http -secondary http://machine_name -read_policy_override full -cgi n -user <domain\\username> -password <user_password>

    Where "FS6" is the name of the file system where the share resides, and where "http://machine_name" is the URL of the webconsole computer (in this example).

    For a Virtual Data Mover, <server_name_where_file_system_resides> refers to the name of the file system that is created on the Virtual Data Mover.

    [root@scylla bin]# fs_dhsm -connection FS6 -create -type http -secondary http://machine_name -read_policy_override full -cgi n

    FS6:

    state = enabled

    offline attr: = on

    popup timeout = 0

    backup: = passthrough

    read policy override = none

    log file: = on

    max log size: = 10MB

    cid = 1

    type = HTTP

    secondary = http://machine_name

    state = enabled

    read policy override = full

    write policy = full

    user =

    options = cgi=n Done
