  • 1.  Does Service Processor server still needed?

    Posted 6 days ago

    In the customer who doesn't have vmware, so its not possible to deploy ops center vm or service processor vm, does Service Processor server still needed?

    Or embedded GUI is enough for basic configuration? (Initial setup, create pool, create LUN, etc)

    What about creating shadow image? is it possible to do it without service processor server?

    Thank you

    Hello

    Yes, you can do the basic configuration via Embedded no problem.

    You can also deploy Ops Center on a Bare Metal Server or standard install. You can read more on how to do that here, should you like to use the Ops Center products:
    https://knowledge.hitachivantara.com/Documents/Management_Software/Ops_Center/10.8.x/Get_Started_with_Ops_Center
    The guide that says 'installer' is to do the installation manually.

    If you have questions or would like to see it in action, reach out to the CoE(Center of Excellence) for a demonstration.

    Well noted, thanks for the information.

    If the customer want to configure shadow image, can we also do it from Embedded GUI?

    Thank you

    Hello Kurniawan

    You can take quick clones(on the right, in the red box) even a snapshot(on the left, in the red box), but these are ad-hoc, by pressing the appropriate button:
    In the screenshot you can see a clone I made of the Volume on the right.

    Can this clone creating proces triggered by outside tool? maybe with rest-api or something like that?
    so it can be done on schedule with no need of manually press the button

    Hello Kurniawan

    Yes, you can just snoop it with your browser:

    Alternatively you can read all about it in the knowledge portal under the Storage Array documentation when accessing the platform rest API guide. Example of the E-Series below:
