storage bridge add

Add a bridge for monitoring

Availability: This command is available to cluster administrators at the admin privilege level.

Description

The storage bridge add command enables you to add FC-to-SAS bridges for SNMP monitoring in a MetroCluster configuration.

Parameters

-address <IP Address> - Bridge Management Port IP Address
This parameter specifies the IP address of the bridge that is being added for monitoring.
[-managed-by {SNMP|in-band}] - Bridge Management Method
This parameter specifies whether the bridge uses the SNMP or in-band management method. FibreBridge 6500N uses SNMP only; FibreBridge7500 may use either.
[-name <text>] - Bridge Name
This parameter identifies the bridge being added. It is required only when the managed-by parameter is set to in-band.
[-snmp-community <text>] - SNMP Community
This parameter specifies the SNMP community set on the bridge that is being added for monitoring.
[-veto-backend-fabric-check {true|false}] - Veto Backend Fabric Check (privilege: advanced)
If specified, the storage bridge add command will not check if the bridge is present in the MetroCluster's backend fabric. By default, it does not let you add bridges that are not present.

Examples

The following command adds a bridge with IP address '10.226.197.16' for monitoring:
    cluster1::> storage bridge add -address 10.226.197.16

    cluster1::> storage bridge show
