Preface

This user’s guide describes the features of SANsurfer Router Manager used to configure and manage the QLogic iSR6152 Intelligent Storage Router (iSR6152). The iSR6152 management utility is a GUI consisting of menus, buttons, and options that you can use to manage iSR6152s from a workstation on Linux® and Windows® platforms. You can view and change network, port, security, and mapping configuration for one or more iSR6152s. The utility shows the most current system information.

For hardware installation, configuration, and diagnostic details, see the iSR6152 Intelligent Storage Router Installation Guide.

Intended Audience

This guide is for users who are responsible for installing, managing, and servicing the iSR6152 router and the SAN equipment to which it is attached.

What’s in this Guide

This guide contains the information needed to monitor the iSR6152 router using SANsurfer Router Manager. This preface explains the typographic conventions used in this guide, lists related documents, and specifies the intended audience.

The remainder of the user's guide is organized into the following chapters and appendices:

Chapter 1 Getting Started provides information to help you begin using SANsurfer Router Manager. It describes how to start and exit SANsurfer Router Manager, connect to routers, use the help system, and set system security.

Chapter 2 Understanding the User Interface illustrates and describes the components of the SANsurfer Router Manager’s graphical user interface (GUI), including the windows, panes, menus, toolbar buttons, and status icons.

Chapter 3 Viewing Router Information describes the pages used to monitor and manage the iSR6152 router—including its ports and connected devices—by viewing and selecting components in the router tree.

Connecting the Management Workstation to the Router

This section describes how to connect the management workstation to the router for the first time, which requires the following procedures:

“Connecting the Hardware” on page 1-2

“Setting the Workstation IP Address” on page 1-2

“Configuring the Router Ports” on page 1-3

“Updating the Firmware” on page 1-3

Connecting the Hardware

SANsurfer Router Manager requires an Ethernet connection to the router using either of the following hardware configurations:

Indirect Ethernet connection from the management workstation to the router RJ-45 connector through an Ethernet switch or hub. This requires a 10/100 Base-T straight cable.

Direct Ethernet connection from the management workstation to the router RJ-45 Ethernet connector. This requires a 10/100 Base-T crossover cable.

For hardware configuration details, refer to the iSR6152 Intelligent Storage Router Installation Guide.

Setting the Workstation IP Address

The IP of a new router is 10.0.0.1. To ensure that your workstation is configured to communicate with the 10.0.0 subnet, refer to the following instructions for your workstation.

Basic Information

Click the first vertical tab on the router’s Information page to view the Basic Information page, as shown in Figure 3-1.

Figure 3-1. Router Information: Basic Information Page

The Basic Information page provides the following router information and settings:

Product Name identifies the router model.

Symbolic Name provides a box for you to assign a symbolic name (64 characters maximum) for the router.

Serial Number shows the router’s serial number.

Boot Loader Version identifies the version of the installed boot loader.

Hardware Version identifies the router hardware version number. Starting with version 6, the hardware supports IPv6.

Software Version identifies the version of firmware loaded on the router. IPv6 requires software version 2.4.0.0 or later.

iSCSI Port Count identifies the quantity of iSCSI ports on the router.

ISR645610-00 B

3–Viewing Router Information Router iSR6152

Fibre Channel Port Count identifies the quantity of Fibre Channel ports on the router.

Temperature shows the router’s current temperature in degrees Centigrade.

System Uptime indicates the number of days, hours, minutes, and seconds that this router has been up since booting after the last shutdown or reboot.

System Settings provides the following options:

System Log Level specifies the level of logging as either 0, 1, or 2 (levels 1 and 2 will adversely impact performance).

SSH Enabled. Select Enabled or Disabled to allow or deny access to the router through SecureSHell (SSH).

Telnet Enabled. Select Enabled or Disabled to allow or deny access to the router through Telnet.

FTP Enabled. Select Enabled or Disabled to allow or deny access to the router through FTP.

Target - LUN Settings provides the following options:

Target Access Control. Select Disabled (the default setting) to present all targets to all initiators. Or, select Enabled to obtain more control over which iSCSI targets are presented to which initiators. Target access control allows you to restrict access to iSCSI targets from initiators, per router. When enabled, the targets are presented to an initiator only if one or more LUNs are presented to that initiator from that target. When Target Access Control is enabled, the target is presented to an initiator if one or more LUNs are mapped to that initiator from any VP group. That is, the host “sees” all VP groups, even if the LUNs are presented only from one of the VP groups from that target.

Target Presentation Mode. Use this setting to specify whether the Fibre Channel targets are automatically or manually presented into the iSCSI SAN. Select Auto (the default and recommended setting) to have the Fibre Channel target automatically presented into the iSCSI SAN. Or, select Manual to manually present the Fibre Channel targets into the iSCSI SAN using the Target Map Wizard or the CLI targetmap add command.

LUN Mapping. Select Enabled or Disabled to allow or disallow access to a LUN.
