Configuring RAID network and SNMP settings - Basic

  • Fibre Channel cable(s) must be connected
  • Ethernet cable(s) must be connected
  • Power must be on
  • Fibre channel cable(s) must be connected
  • Power must be on
Use the Storage Utility to configure the following settings for the K2 RAID controller:
  • IP address
  • Subnet mask
  • Gateway Address
  • SNMP trap destinations

For K2 RAID, network and SNMP settings are set and stored on the RAID controller module, so the combined RAID storage devices, including the optional Expansion chassis, exist as a single entity on the control network.

The RAID storage device is configured by default for the SNMP community name “public”. If your site’s policies require using a different SNMP community name, contact your Grass Valley representative.

  1. Launch Storage Utility from the K2Config application.
  2. As prompted, wait while Storage Utility gathers system information, then Storage Utility opens.
  3. In Storage Utility tree view, expand the node for the K2 RAID, right-click the icon for a RAID controller, and select Configuration | Network Properties. The Controller Network Settings dialog box opens.

  4. In the Controller Slot Number field enter 0 and then press Enter. The settings from controller 0 are loaded into the Controller Network Settings dialog box and are available for you to modify.
  5. Enter the control network IP address and other network settings.
  6. For SNMP Configuration, enter the IP address of the SNMP manager PC.

    You can also enter IP addresses for other SNMP managers to which you want to send SNMP trap messages.

    Refer to related topics about Grass Valley recommended deployment and monitoring solutions in the "Release Notes" section of the K2 Topic Library.

  7. Click OK to save settings and close.
  8. In Storage Utility click View | Refresh.

Next, bind disk modules.
