Setting up a support page

Setting up the support page completes the cluster setup, and involves setting up the AutoSupport messages and event notifications, and for single-node clusters, configuring system backup.

Before you begin

You must have set up the cluster and network.

About this task

If you have enabled the AutoSupport button, all the nodes in that cluster are enabled to send AutoSupport messages. If you have disabled the AutoSupport button, then all the nodes in that cluster are disabled to send AutoSupport messages.


  1. If you have enabled the AutoSupport button, set up the AutoSupport messages by entering the proxy URL in the Proxy URL field.
    Note: The format of the proxy URL must be username:password@proxyUrl:port.
  2. Set up the event notifications by using the mailhost, or SNMP trap host, or Syslog server.
    Note: You must set up at least one event notification system.
  3. If you have a single-node cluster, configure a system backup on an FTP server or on an HTTP server.
    Note: System backup is applicable only for single-node clusters.
  4. Click Submit and continue.
