Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

Hello,

I'm trying to use Snapdrive 5.2.1 on Oracle Linux 6.5 (VMWare 5.5) to connect to NetApp NFS exports :

When I use sdconfcheck check :

NOTE: SnapDrive Configuration Checker is using the data file version  v12052013

  Please make sure that you are using the latest version.

  Refer to the SnapDrive for Unix Installation and Administration Guide for more details.

Detected Intel/AMD x64 Architecture

Detected Linux OS

Error: No Client Stats (/proc/net/rpc/nfs: No such file or directory).

Detected NFSv3 FileSystem on Linux

Detected   Ext4 File System

Detected   Linux Native LVM2

Did not find any supported Multipath solutions.

Did not find any supported cluster solutions.

Did not find any supported HU tool kits.

Trace-Enabled: on

Trace-Level: 7

Did not find any supported configurations by SDU Version 5.2.1

Did I miss something ?

Thanks in advance.

Olivier -

I don't think you're missing anything.

You're using Snapdrive for Snapmanager connectivity ?

The err messages are due to not having an FC SAN solution, hence no need for Host Utilities.

Next is to set snapdrive credentials for the storage system with 'snapdrive config set' ...

I hope this response has been helpful to you.

Re: Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

Hi Eugene,

Credentials have been set already.

Here is the output of snapdrive config list :

username    appliance name       appliance type

--------------------------------------------------

***                 ***-mgmt             StorageSystem

***                 ***-mgmt             StorageSystem

***                 oncommand        DFM

***                 ip                       DFM

I replace my information with *

You can test your setup with

snapdrive storage show -fs /oracle/oraclass/oradata

(your file system)

Or take a test snap:

snapdrive snap create -fs /oracle/oraclass/oratemp -snapname netapp123

See also the Snapdrive documentation.

Re: Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

Eugene,

Here is the output of snapdrive storage show -all

WARNING: This operation can take several minutes

          based on the configuration.

0001-185 Command error: storage show failed: no NETAPP devices to show or add the host to the trusted hosts (options trusted.hosts) and enable SSL on the storage system or retry after changing snapdrive.conf to use http for storage system communication and restarting snapdrive daemon.

It doesn't look like the config for the storage was set correctly.

You should see the NetApp listed when you do 'snapdrive config list'.

Re: Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

Eugene,

the "snapdrive config list" command returns me the SAS and SATA storage :

username    appliance name       appliance type

--------------------------------------------------

account1       netapp11-mgmt   StorageSystem

account1       netapp12-mgmt   StorageSystem

account2       oncommand        DFM

Are there NFS exports from these storage systems mounted ?

Re: Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

No, when I try to mount my NetApp NFS export :

mount.nfs: backgrounding "netapp:/vol/myvol"

mount.nfs: mount options: "bg,hard,rsize=32768,wsize=32768,vers=3,nointr,timeo=600,tcp,addr=my@IP"

Re: Installing SnapDrive UNIX 5.2.1

Olivier -

Take a close look at your exports in /etc/exports and get these mounts working.
