Download OnCommand

Download the OnCommand program for administering NetApp storage.

Enable HTTP for port 80 in the filers for management

To enable HTTP, enter the following commands in the NetApp CLI.

Alternatively, you can enable HTTP in the Filer (the web interface of the NetApp).
Go to HTTP and set the option HTTP Enabled to Yes.

Use the following command in the NetApp CLI.

Alternatively, you can enable iSCSI in the Filer.
Go to LUNs then Enable/disable and set the option Enable iSCSI to Enable.

Reconfigure NetApp Initiator Groups

Only for Previously Configured NetApp Devices

This section only applies to NetApp devices that have already been configured outside of Abiquo.

If you have previously used the NetApp storage with a hypervisor host outside of Abiquo, the host's IQN may have been added to another initiator group, so Abiquo will not be able to automatically add it to "abiGroup". You must reconfigure the NetApp before you can use the NetApp with Abiquo. The hypervisor IQNs must all be in the same group. If this group is not called abiGroup, then you must set group name in the Abiquo properties files.

  1. Open your browser and access the Netapp filer manager screen (http://<Filer_IP>/na_admin/ and click on FilerView).
  2. Navigate to LUNS > Initiator groups. Check that all the hypervisor IQNs are in the same initiator group. If some hypervisors do not appear here, you do not need to add them.
  3. If the initiator group is not named "abiGroup", do these steps:
    1. Using an ssh terminal, access your Abiquo Remote Services Server and edit the file /opt/abiquo/config/abiquo.properties.
    2. Add the following line or modify it your desired initiator group name:

      Add to /opt/abiquo/config/abiquo.properties
      abiquo.storagemanager.netapp.initiatorGroupName = "myGroup"
    3. Then restart the tomcat service using:

      # service abiquo-tomcat restart
