hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Command View Upgrade The hp StorageWorks command view xp 2.0 contains major architecture changes to support the new XP12000 array, enhanced user security and other new features. Unlike earlier hp StorageWorks command view xp (CV XP) version, CV XP 2.0 is known to be incompatible with XP1024 and XP128 array firmware version of /00 and earlier. As a result, existing customers with XP128 and XP1024 with incompatible firmware cannot use CV XP 2.0 to manage their arrays. If the customers decide to purchase a XP12000, the customers must use CV XP 2.0 to manage this new array architecture. Please refer to the CV XP compatibility white paper for compatibility matrix. The white paper will be available in PIT. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

10 CV and XP array firmware dependency

CV XP versions XP128 and XP1024 FW version XP12000 FW version XP512 and XP48 FW version XP256 FW version CV XP 1.8B Minimum: /00 Recommended /00 or later (up to ) Not Supported Minumum: /00 Recommended: /00 or later Minimum and Recommended: /00 CV XP 2.0 and later Initial GA version ?? White Paper on CV XP migration will be available soon Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

11 CV 2.0 and PA and APM compatibility
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 CV 2.0 and PA and APM compatibility CV 2.0 management server software can only co-locate with PA 2.0 management software. CV 2.0 Path Connectivity host agent can co-locate with PA 2.0 and older PA host agents. CV 2.0 management server communicates to CV 2.0 host agent only. CV XP Host Agent APM Host Agent PA Host Agent Note CV XP 1.8B APM 3.0B or 3.0C PA or 1.7A CV XP 2.0 APM 3.0E PA 2.0 Please refer to the CV/PA installation guide and README for further instructions. CV 2.0 and PA host agent older than 2.0 are installed in completely separate directory structure and do not affect each other. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

12 Multiple Version of CV/PA Existing in the SAN
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Multiple Version of CV/PA Existing in the SAN CV 1.8 MS CV 2.0 MS XP 128 with new FW XP 128 with older firmware XP 1024 with older firmware XP 12000 Host 1 with CV 1.8 Host Agent Host 2 with CV 1.8 Host Agent Host 3 with CV 2.0 Host Agent Host 4 with CV 2.0 Host Agent Manages Arrays CV 2.0 management server can only manage array with firmware version equal or greater than firmware specified in streams document. Some user may maintain both earlier CV version and CV 2.0 on the same SAN. For Path Connectivity, user needs to use the corresponding host agent from the CV release. For example, host connected to the arrays managed by CV 1.8 needs to use CV 1.8 host agent for the CV 1.8 MS to see ALL path Connectivity data. In the above figure , CV 1.8 is needed to manage arrays with older firmware and CV 2.0 is needed to manage XP12000 and array with newer firmware. Host 1 and Host 2 are connected to the arrays managed by CV 1.8 and so required CV 1.8 host agent. Host 2 will not be able to gather array information from the XP128 managed by CV 2.0; therefore, the CV 1.8 Path Connectivity will not be able to show array specific and connectivity health information for this array. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

13 Launching Array Management GUI
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Launching Array Management GUI For XP128, XP1024 and XP12000 array types, the Web Console (GUI) can be launched directly (without CV XP) using the following URL: IP Address> The main differences between the Web Console GUI and the CV GUI will be that there will be no Online help icon. Hence the Online help icon functionality is not available in Web Console GUI when launched directly (without CV XP) using the above URL. Another significant difference is that you  cannot  list or kill web console GUI sessions from Command View where as you can list or kill CV GUI  sessions from command view.

Mainframe support is available in XP12000, XP1024 and XP128 through GUI only. Note: There is no support for XP256 arrays from Command View 2.0 version forward. To manage XP256 arrays, the user needs to have CV1.8 or earlier versions. Support for XP1024/128/ No support for XP256. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

15 Array Manager - device launcher
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Array Manager - device launcher For XP512/48 – Opens in the same CV window. Command View 2.0 The image above shows the Command View XP 2.0 GUI. Open Systems support is available in XP12000, XP1024, XP128, XP512 and XP48 through GUI, API and CLI. Mainframe support is available in XP12000, XP1024 and XP128 through GUI only. For XP12000, XP1024 and XP128 array, only one link is available in Device launcher. When the user clicks on this link, a new browser is launched. This new browser is always launched in the default View Mode. For XP512 and XP48 array types, two links for View and Modify are available in Device launcher screen. Note: There is no support for XP256 array types from CV2.0 version onwards. To manage XP256 arrays, the user needs to have CV1.8 or earlier versions. It is recommended that for actively managing XP256 arrays, Remote Control XP be used. For XP128/1024/12000 – Opens a new browser window. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

16 Array Manager - device administration
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Array Manager - device administration To add or register a disk array: From the Device Administration window, enter the disk array’s IP address in the Agent IP Address field. Press Enter or click Submit. The Serial Number, Product Type, and Product Number fields are filled in automatically. If the Device Name field is blank, enter a name for the disk array. For the XP1024/XP12000, select the left DKU type and right DKU type from the drop-down lists. If the Contact and Location fields are blank, enter a contact name and a location. Select the Manage Array check box. This check box is selected by default. If it is not selected, the disk array is added to Command View’s list, but it will not be managed by Command View. No configuration data will be retrieved. Click Save and then click OK to confirm. Device Administrator screen is used to add/delete new disk array, change array parameters Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

17 Array Manager - Session Administration
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Array Manager - Session Administration Use Session Administration to view information about disk array sessions and to end sessions. Multiple users can access a disk array simultaneously. Only one user is allowed to be in Modify mode, but there can be many view-only users. View-only or modify status is determined by user permissions (set using the User Administration functions) and by whether another “modify” user is already managing a disk array. In that case, the second user’s permissions are downgraded to view-only. If a session is inactive after a certain period of time because a user has not used the system, Command View automatically terminates the session. The default is 60 minutes, which can be changed. To change the value, edit the SESSION_TIMEOUT_PLAN value in the CommandView.properties file Use Session Administration to view information about disk array sessions and to end sessions. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

18 Changing session timeout value
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Changing session timeout value The session timeout value determines how long a session lasts after a user in Modify mode has not used the browser. The default is set to 60 minutes. You can change the value by editing a configuration file. To change the value, edit the SESSION_TIMEOUT_PLAN value in the CommandView.properties file. SESSION_TIMEOUT_PLAN value can be: ONCE:Value Using this setting, Command View checks the CommandView. properties file only once, when someone adds a device or restarts the server, and then sets the session timeout value at that time. ALWAYS:value Using this setting, Command View checks the CommandView. properties file every time a user in Modify mode clicks a tab to manage an XP128, XP1024 and XP12000 (Identity and Status tabs excluded). CV session timeout To change the session timeout value: Locate the CommandView.properties file in the C:\hpss\dm\tomcat\webapps\hpstmgmt\webroot\Stormgmt directory. Use a word processor or text editor to open the file. Look for the SESSION_TIMEOUT_PLAN setting by locating the following line: SESSION_TIMEOUT_PLAN=ONCE:60 Replace 60 with the number of minutes you want a session to last before it times out due to inactivity. This setting is applicable to all XP disk arrays. If you are managing an XP128, XP1024 or XP12000, also consider changing ONCE to ALWAYS. The default is ONCE:60. Most users will want to choose the ONCE setting. Using this setting means that Command View checks the CommandView.properties file only once, when someone adds a device or restarts the server, and then sets the session timeout value at that time. Certain users may find they need the flexibility of the ALWAYS setting, which ensures that Command View always determines the timeout value. Using this setting means that Command View checks the CommandView.properties file every time a user in Modify mode clicks a tab to manage an XP128, XP1024 or XP12000 (Identity and Status tabs excluded). You may want to consider using this setting if you or someone else needs to change the timeout value on the SVP, but you want to override that when using Command View. Note: This setting adds an additional delay of approximately 45 seconds when loading a new window. Save and close the file. Restart Command View XP Services by clicking Start  Programs  HP StorageWorks Command View XP  Restart Services. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

29 Command View security architecture
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Command View security architecture Command View security architecture Command View 1.80 user administration and authentication system is fragmented where GUI, CLI and PC used one authentication system with its own user database and Command View API had another system with its own user database. Command View 2.0 user administration system is an integrated one, where all of GUI, CLI, API and Command View snap-in apps: PC, PA uses the same authentication system and user database, which is based on the CSSI security model. The CSSI security system provides only very basic authentication system, where the user can be authenticated, gets authorization token, which can be used to verify his access to various parts of the system. The Command View 2.0 model has a thin layer above CSSI security system basically to maintain rules for Command View imposed restrictions on users/groups so that any unauthorized, timed out, logged out users cannot use their access token to re-enter the security system. The layer above CSSI security system is provided through a separate module in CSSI layer. This module exposes various methods for authentication, authorization checks, management of users/groups (add/delete/modify users/groups etc.). This component makes necessary checks for the user rights before passing on the information to the actual CSSI security system. The clients (GUI, API, CLI) can contact this new module to use these services. This new module is a separate RMI service running on Management station. This RMI service is an extension of security RMI Service provided by CSSI security system with Command View specific code. Thus RMI server will be used by Command View CLI, Command View GUI and PA (with or without Command View). Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

Command View 2.0 User administration system is integrated All GUI, CLI, API and Command View snap-in applications (for example, Performance Advisor) use the same authentication system and user database Authentication system is based on the CSSI security model. Command view security The overall design of CSSI is loosely based on the Windows security model. Much of the terminology used here is the same as that used in the Windows security documentation. The CSSI security system provides only very basic authentication system, where the user can be authenticated, gets authorization token, which can be used to verify his access to various parts of the system. The Command View 2.0 model has a thin layer above CSSI security system basically to maintain rules for Command View imposed restrictions on users/groups so that any unauthorized, timed out, logged out users cannot use their access token to re-enter the security system. The layer above CSSI security system is provided through a separate module in CSSI layer.

hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Users and groups Users in Command View 2.0 are classified in four categories: Normal Users Basic group with read only access to entire Command View Framework Storage Administrators These users are storage administrators for one or more arrays. Command View Administrators These users are the super administrators of the Command View management station. They have modify access to everything. Command View 2.0 user categories Normal/Ordinary users These users are basically read-only users who can only view the configuration of the command View. These users always are member of Users group. Storage administrators These users are storage administrators for zero or more arrays. These users have modify permissions on zero or more arrays but rest of the permissions are same as that of Normal users. These users always are members of StorageAdmins group. Command View administrators These users are the super administrators of the Command View management station. They have modify access to everything. These users will always be the members of Administrators group. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

32 Default users and permissions
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Default users and permissions User-id User Group administrator Administrators storageadmin StorageAdmins user Users Command View users Command View maintains users and groups information in the user.xml and group.xml in hpss\security\store folder. The information in these files is encrypted as base-64 encoded string. When the server comes up, it checks to see if these files exist. If not it creates these files with default users (mentioned in subsequent sections) and groups. So if users & groups database are accidentally removed, at least default users/groups information can be restored in this way. Administrator There is one default super user with user-id administrator and belongs to the Administrators group. This default user will always be part of Administrators group and cannot be deleted by any user. Only this user can change the password of this user. This user can create additional users in any of the groups. Default password is administrator Password of administrator can’t be changed by other Administrators StorageAdmin There is one default user with user id storageadmin and is part of StorageAdmins group. Always be part of StorageAdmins group and cannot be deleted from it. Cannot be deleted by any other user, including administrator. Only storageadmin or members of Administrators group can change password of storageadmin. User There is one default read-only user with user id user who belongs to the Users group This user will always be part of Users group and cannot be deleted from it. This user cannot be deleted by any user. Although this user belongs to the Users group (the members of which have no array access initially), this will have by default read only access to all the arrays added to the Command View and the access cannot be removed or changed. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

33 Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals
hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Command View SVP users All users of Command View will have the same web console user name for all of the arrays (XP128, XP1024, and XP12000 only) to which they have access. The same user name should be used to gain GUI or RSD API access to the arrays. Following are the scenarios where users are created in SVP When a device is added to Command View The device addition will be successful only when the all users in Administrators group could be added to the SVP of that device. Otherwise, device will not be added. When a user is created with Administrators group The user will be created in all arrays added in the Command View XP station. If user addition fails on any one of the array (due to network problem, unavailability of lock, and so on), the user will not be added to the Command View. When a user of Users or StorageAdmins group is assigned to one or more arrays ,this user will be created in those arrays. If the user addition fails on any array, that array will not be assigned to the user and a message will be shown in GUI or CLI indicating which array could not be assigned. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

34 Single sign-on for Command View
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Single sign-on for Command View Once logged into the Command View XP GUI, users are able to access array managers and Command View XP snap-in components (for example, Priority Port Control (PPC) and Performance Advisor (PA)) without being challenged for authorization and authentication. The Security or user admin system will be the common user management platform for all snap-in applications. Command View sign-on Only Performance Advisor (PA) may have the requirement of running alone without CommandView. The user admin panel of Command View can be directly reused in the PA if it has to run as a stand-alone. As mentioned in the introduction section, the user admin applet has to contact the CSSI RMI service to get the user administration facilities. If PA is installed with Command View 2.0 or later, PA will share the user admin and security components with Command View XP. Command View and PA will have same security, user administration GUI and security back-end. If PA runs standalone without Command View XP, it will have the security binaries installed in \hpss\security\bin directory. PA will use its own set of Administrators for creating PA users and accessing PA functionality. If Command View is installed on the same management station later, the installer must install the Command View from \hpss directory. The installer will downgrade all user IDs in the Administrators group, other than default administrator to StorageAdmins group. It will also force the password of the default administrator to be changed during installation of Command View over PA. PA will now use the user administration GUI screen available in Command View browser GUI. Sept 2004 HP Restricted Sept 2004

35 Access to Command View features
Implementing XP12000 Solution Fundamentals hp StorageWorks Command View 2.0 Access to Command View features Access to Command View XP framework features Users who wish to access features of the Command View XP framework, such as Path Connectivity, Performance Advisor and so on, must login to the Command View XP management station. Access to Command View XP device managers (Web consoles) There are two ways for users to access the Web Consoles. One is from within the Command View framework by utilizing links provided there. Alternately, users can launch the web console directly without having to login to Command View XP. Access to Command View XP CLIs Any user who has an account in Command View XP framework except default API users, can use CLI by logging-in with the user ID and password with which the user has been defined in Command View XP. However there is no single sign-on between the CLI, GUI and API sessions. If the user is using the GUI after logging in, to use the CLI the user has to login again. Web Console access Via Command View XP Command View XP provides a centralized place for users to access their arrays.
