we have a list of users and i want to add them in Hitachi Storage Navigator tool through scripting.
Have a look at the Hitachi document, Hitachi Unified Storage Command Line Interface Reference Guide. Specifically, the "auaccount" command should have what you need. Let us know if that helps!
Is this an enterprise type array, e.g. HUS-VM, VSP G1000, VSP Gx00?
This is for VSP and its an enterprise array. I am referring to SN(Storage Navigator)
Unfortunately there is no CLI capability to create/modify/remove/etc... array users.
Or, you are referring to HCS itself?
its like we have a large no users to be added in the Hitachi Storage Navigator , so as its very hard to add them one by one through GUI is very difficult so want to run a script and it should be added in the respective VSP or all the VSPs.
got this from REST API manual:
First, I'm not a current HDS employee but I was a HDS CE for a long time.
There is no API to add users to Storage Navigator that runs on the SVP (for a VSP). GUI is the official sanctioned way to add users.
I'd recommend using HiCommand (HCS) software suite and enable active directory or ldap integration of you have that many users or frequent user edits.
That said, I'd you don't want HCS, work with your local CE and you may be able to replicate the GUI user list text file from one SVP to another. The file is referenced in the SVP replacement procedure and the VSP GUI password recovery KB article (internal). The procedure's purpose is to retain the user list when a SVP is replaced but I've used the procedure to copy the user list to a DR array from production. File format is, of course, model specific and filename is case sensative.
HCS 8.5 Configuration manager REST API has support
for adding and managing users.
