We recently purchased a VNX 5300 at auction and would like to reinitialize to factory default, we are new to the EMC world.
What we are able to do;
What we are not able to do;
We would appreciate any constructive advice offered (pls do not suggest to contacting Dell for an engineer to assist us, as there charges are outside of our affodability).
Can you browse to the setup page of the SP? Even via the service port?
Remotely Anywhere access is usually blocked on the Management Port.
Don't know why the NaviSecCli commands fail. Did you reboot after changing the IP?
I assume you already tried Unisphere Initialization Utility to discover the array.
There is a procedure to Reimage an Array, you need to use the serial port, but it also wipes any feature keys (enablers) on the array. Unfortunately this procedure is only available to EMC internal and partners and I'm not allowed to disclose that.
