Flare 30 Features

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?

Re: Flare 30 Features

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.

Hi,

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

Re: Flare 30 Features

of course in terms of SAN storage use all the available Clariion video's and white papers apply to the Celerra FC enabled model as well

I figured it out I didnt know there was a Celerra login using a different IP and then a Clariion side login using a different IP.

Re: Flare 30 Features

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)

Re: Flare 30 Features

Do you have instructions for that?  What license do I need?

Re: Flare 30 Features

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)
