Can someone tell me the use of management blade servers in HUCP 4000. Is it used for installing hitachi command suite. Pls explain me .
Please consult the HDS Learning Center at learningcenter.hds.com. You can self-register and search the HDS offered training courses.
In particular, course with course code TCI2527 Managing and Monitoring UCP for VMware vSphere is the 4-day, ILT or vILT course for customers - this courses teaches how to use UCP Director running with the VMware hypervisor. There are other courses for HDS employees and partners, only. If you are associated with an HDS partner organization, check to see what trainings are available to you. It is not possible to share training materials through the HDS Community.
(I would welcome it when you mark your question as answered. Thank-you.)
In both the UCP 4000 and UCP 4000E models, the CR210 management servers are the foundation for the management environment. Now, that may sound redundant, but the architecture of the UCP with Unified Compute Platform Director is divided into "management" and "Compute" sides of the environment. The UCP Management stack, the set of VMs that "make UCP Director work" run on the CR210 management servers. I believe there is an ordering option for the UCP 4000E with only a single non-redundant management server, but in my opinion, always having the second is a really good idea. By having 2 CR210 management servers, you can setup the "management" side as a failover cluster....and this is a really good idea.
The "management" side manages the Compute environment that runs on the server blades in 1 or more Hitachi Compute Blade server chassis.
I hope this has been helpful. Let me know if you have more questions.
(I have written training for the UCP 4000 and UCP 4000E)
Thanks for your reply.
As per my understaning ucp 4000 has 2 management servers. one server will be running ucp director software and other server would be running management softwares like hitachi command suite,device manager etc.. Pls correct me if am wrong.
The management servers will run a hypervisor platform which can be either VMware ESXi or Windows Hyper-V failover cluster. (This choice must be made when ordering the system.) The UCP management infrastructure stack is a set of "management" VMs that run on this cluster. There is a basic set of management VMs and a few that are optional depending on some configuration options. One of the management VMs runs Hitachi Command Suite. (Hitachi Device Manager and Hitachi Compute Systems Manager run in this VM.) The UCP Director software runs in a separate management VM. Some of the other management VMs run Active Directory, Hitachi Tuning Manager, a SQL instance, vCenter (or Windows System Center) and there is a Linux utility VM (collects logs).
Again, the management infrastructure, the "stuff that makes a system running UCP Director work" is a set of VMs that run on the CR210 management servers that are/should be configured as a failover cluster. I hope this helps your understanding of UCP with Unified Compute Platform Director.
Thanks Janet..Now i got an idea...
if you have any training doc can you pls share ...
One of the management VMs runs the Hitachi Command Suite (Hitachi Device Manager and Hitachi Compute Systems Manager) and another of the management VMs runs Hitachi Tuning Manager.
