Re: Configuring VMware's VASA with ViPR

Jump to solution

Hi Conor,

I got the issue of 'connecting Isilon with ViPR' resolved with the help of technical team from EMC.

I had below doubts regarding working of ViPR:

Q1. How do ViPR manage server swaps? Lets say I unmask a LUN and set up my FCP zones for server A. Then server A dies. Can I say that WWID XXXX is now server A’s replacement and have ViPR re-zone everything and unmask the LUN to the new WWID?

Q2. Are ViPR aware of path status for FCP and IP? What happens when a path is degraded? Do they keep provisioning against that degraded object? Do they attempt remediation?

Q3. Can ViPR take VMDK granular actions? Like, when I put a VMDK onto an NFS share, can I turn on backup against it?

Q4. Where is the service lying in ViPR for managing tenant management? URL? Say, create a new tenant.

Regards,

Sachin

I have errors configuring VASA for ViPR and when I go to https://< Virtual IP address (VIP) of the ViPR instance>:9083/storageos-vasasvc/  I do not see the Apache web page. I am using ViPR 2.4.1 and I see that the vasa service is running. I also tried restarting the vasa service.

Hi Mumshad,

I was wondering if you were following the info in this guide when setting vasa up:

http://www.emc.com/collateral/TechnicalDocument/docu59842.pdf

I do not believe the above doc was changed from version Vipr-c 2.3 to 2.4.

After you have seen the vasa serverice running, there are a few more steps after that:

Copying the Storage Provider Service EPR

Registering the Storage Provider

I hope this helps!

Hi Jay,

I am trying to perform that step, but when I run the below URL, I do not see any results:

Type the appliance URL as specified https:// :9083/storageos-vasasvc/ services/listServices in the browser address bar.

Is there anything else to be done in ViPR 2.4?

Never mind. My issue was due to an expired VMWare certificate, which I resolved following https://kb.vmware.com/kb/2079087

I couldn't see the Tomcat web pages mentioned above though.
