Hi I have upgraded our Celerra NS120 so now we are using Unisphere and Flare 30. I tried finding some guides/videos on configuring Compression, Fast Cache, and Auto-Tiering but they all seem to be for the clarion? Is there any documentation for the Celerra on how to start using these?
Chads Youtube Video on these features uses a version/hardware way different than me because I dont have any of those options/settings like he shows I am guessing the video was done on a Clariion.
these features are all configured using UniSphere block - you need the corresponding license (enabler) installed.
FAST Cache you just turn on for your NAS Luns in the LUN properties there
compression and sub-LUN tiering are currently not supported for LUNs that contain NAS file systems
if you configure it correctly with a storage domain based account you can use either one IP and then select the NAS or SAN side from the menu without additional login (single sign-on)
No extra license necessary
A storage domain should have been automatically created when installing / upgrading – just select global account when logging in
Take a look at the UniSphere white paper on Powerlink for a description of the archticture
troubleshooting info should be in the knowledgebase (Primus)
