I'm currently working with an EMC tech to troubleshoot issues with an NS-120. We are repeatedly getting "Query hardware components All. Invalid component information :BackendResume:Power:Name:Power C:EMC_PART_NUMBER:071-000-523 (etc)" warnings in the Status area of the Celerra Manager Web GUI.
Looks to be a power supply.
Anyways, when the tech was doing the normal status checks of the SAN he ran:
The tech asked if we were truly working on an NS-120. I'm sure we are, but he sure we weren't after seeing this.
He also ran /nas/sbin/serial, which returned a completely different S/N than what is listed in the Celerra manager Web GUI, which ALSO led him to believe it was a different SAN than what I was talking about.
Is this normal for an NS-120 to return a model# of NS40G when running this command?
this shouldn't happen.
NS-120 reports itself as a NS-120 as expected :
[nasadmin@CSNS120 ~]$ /nas/sbin/model
Check the serial number ( /nas/sbin/serial ), and make sure you are on the right system, as dynamox said.
You can also try this one :
[nasadmin@CSNS120 ~]$ nas_storage -i id=1 |egrep "model_num|captive_storage"
model_num = CX4-120
captive_storage = True
The above output shows it's a CX4-120 on the backend, and it's a captive model ( aka integrated ).
Thanks for the responses.
That's a little disconcerting as we definitely sold the customer an NS-120 w/EMC professional services (so EMC shipped, racked, installed and configured it). I'm looking at the BoM right now and NS-120 is all over it - no mentions of NS40G.
OK, my experience with EMC products is... very minimal, so bear with me
The tech asked me to connect PuTTY to the SAN, so I SSH'd into the Celerra control station *(this is correct... right?)*:
EMC Celerra Control Station Linux Thu Jun 3 23:58:56 EDT 2010
*** slot_0 primary control station ***
Here's the output of the command you mentioned:
nas_storage -i id=1 |egrep "model_num|captive_storage"
model_num = CX4-120
captive_storage = False
/nas/sbin/model again returns NS40G
/nas/sbin/serial returns a different serial number than what is in the Celerra manager GUI
well...there are several things to check...
I suggest you to open a support ticket, or contact you local EMC representative.
I'm definitely going to contact our EMC rep. This is actually the 3rd rather strange issue on this SAN (could not re-IP the SP's with CSA or script, and the invalid component warnings - now this).
Here's the output from the command you mentioned, Dynamox:
[nasadmin@hoidpns01cs0 ~]$ nas_storage -l
id acl name serial_number
1 0 APM0010200XXXX APM0010200XXXX
X'd out the last 4 on the name/serial. Both name and serial are exactly the same.
