Gathering data for deploying StorageGRID Webscale appliance

Before deploying the StorageGRID Webscale appliance, you must gather information about Ethernet switch ports and IP addresses.

About this task

Refer to StorageGRID Webscale appliance connections, and use the following worksheet to collect the information from your administrator.
Information needed Your value
Specify the Ethernet switch port you will connect to management port 1 on the E2700 controller (used to access the management network for SANtricity Storage Manager) Switch port for management port 1 on E2700 controller:
Specify the Ethernet switch port you will connect to management port 1 on the E5600SG controller (used to access the Admin network for StorageGRID Webscale) Switch port for management port 1 on E5600SG controller:
MAC addresses or IP addresses for management ports
  • If the management network (or networks) includes a DHCP server, enter the MAC address from the labels next to management port 1 on the back of each controller. The network administrator can use the MAC address to determine what IP address was assigned by the DHCP server. (For some E5600SG controllers, the DHCP-assigned IP address is displayed on the seven-segment display after you apply power.)
  • If you do not use DHCP, enter the static IP address that you plan to use for these ports on your network.
Address for management port 1 on E2700 controller:

Address for management port 1 on E5600SG controller:
Specify the switch ports you will connect to the four 10-GbE optical ports on the E5600SG controller.
Note: If you plan to use Fixed Port Configuration, ports 2 and 4 connect to the Grid network for StorageGRID Webscale, and ports 1 and 3 connect to the Client network for StorageGRID Webscale. If you plan to use Aggregate Port Configuration, see information about StorageGRID Webscale appliance connections and cabling the appliance.
