Configuring the node

After you rack and cable the hardware, you are ready to configure your new storage resource.

Before you begin

You have powered on the node.

Steps

  1. Attach a keyboard and monitor to the node.
  2. In the terminal user interface (TUI) that is displayed, configure the network and cluster settings for the node by using the on-screen navigation.
    Note: You must get the IP address of the node from the TUI. You need this when you add the node to a cluster. After you save the settings, the node is in a pending state, and can be added to a cluster. See the NetApp Element Software Setup Guide for configuration instructions.

  3. Configure out-of-band management using the Baseboard Management Controller (BMC).
    This steps applies only to H610S nodes.
    1. Use a web browser and navigate to the default BMC IP address: 192.168.0.120
    2. Log in using the following default credentials:
      • User name: root
      • Password: calvin
    3. From the node management screen, navigate to Settings > Network Settings , and configure the network parameters for the out-of-band management port.
