Configure IP Availability Manager to discover IPStoragePath for KVM hypervisor and storage arrays connected via Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI). By default, discovery of IPStoragePath is disabled.
For configuring IPStoragePath for KVM hypervisor in IP, perform additional tasks described in “Configuring IPStoragePath for KVM hypervisor in IP” on page 165.
For FCoE based IPStoragePaths, perform additional tasks described in “Configure IP Manager for FCoE based IPStoragePaths” on page 166.
For iSCSI based IPStoragePaths, no additional tasks are needed. To discover the iSCSI based IPStoragePaths, IP Availability Manager requires that devices in the path respond to SNMP polling and support Bridge and LLDP MIBs.
Configure IP Availability Manager to discover IPStoragePath:
In the installation area where the IP Manager server is running, go to the BASEDIR/smarts/bin directory and type the following command to open the discovery.conf file:
Change the DisableIPStoragePathDiscovery parameter to FALSE.
# Enables or disabled IPStoragePath discovery in the IP topology. # A IPStoragePath is a physical path from a FileServer to a ESX Host # A IPStoragePath contains all the physical nodes and connections # which form the IPStoragePath. # Default Value = TRUE DisableIPStoragePathDiscovery = FALSE
Change the DisableJAVAProbe parameter to FALSE.
# This value determines if the JAVA probe is enabled # Needs Server restart # Default value is TRUE. So by default JAVA probe is disabled.
Save and close the file.
Restart the IP Availability Manager.
