Re: Find VNX management IP

If you can get access to the Control Station (say, via ESRS), you can get the internal (customer-facing) IP via the CLI.  You can run 'navicli' commands and get information from the Block array.  For a captive VNX on the backend, you'll only get the internal IPs.  But for a gateway unit, you'll get the public IPs.  Here's a captive array:

[nasadmin@test-vnx~]$ /nas/sbin/navicli -h A_APM999999999 networkadmin -get

Storage Processor:                  SP A

Storage Processor Network Name:    SPA

Storage Processor IP Address:      192.168.1.200

Storage Processor Subnet Mask:      255.255.255.0

Storage Processor Gateway Address:  192.168.1.104

And here's a gateway

[nasadmin@vnx-dr-2012a~]$ /nas/sbin/navicli -h A_APM999999998 networkadmin -get

Storage Processor:                  SP A

Storage Processor Network Name:    SPA

Storage Processor IP Address:      10.99.91.11

Storage Processor Subnet Mask:      255.255.254.0

Storage Processor Gateway Address:  10.99.91.1

The /etc/hosts file can help determine the internal IP/hostname to use in your navicli command.

Let us know if that helps!
