Initialization Loop on EMC CX300 SAN SPA
Posted on 2007-10-15
I have an EMC CX300 SAN that I am trying to configure.
I have managed to get everything working except for one problem.
SPA seems to be stuck in a loop when Initialising the security and creating the domain. (Via Navisphere web interface)
I get the following messages/prompts:
Responds with:"Global security is not initialized. It is highly recommended that you initialise global security [YES/NO]"
Puts up Navisphere login, I enter username and password, same as SPB.
If I click [YES], it prompts for a username and password, which I enter, then it progresses to the next window.
Responds with: "Confirm: AddUser. Add the following user, admin [YES]"
Click on [YES]
Responds with: "Success: Initialize Security: Success [YES]"
Click on [YES]
Responds with: "This storage system is not in a domain. It is highly recommended you create a new domain for this system."
If I Select the only choice SPA's IP address and click ok, it says "This operation will assign the node - xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx to be the domain master [YES/NO]"
If I click YES, it says "Node xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx was successfully assigned to be the domain master of the domain. Please note that it will take few minutes to propagate the master information to all systems in the domain [OK]"
When I click [OK] It appears to login to the interface, then the page goes blank.
I wait 5 minutes then reload the Navisphere webpage again and it makes me go through the whole process again.
Am I missing a step? What else can i do to make this setting permanent?
Please note: this SAN has LUNs that are currently being used.
