This chapter is an introduction and overview of the hp StorageWorks edge switch 2/16
Product Manager application. It is intended as a quick reference for using features
available through the main Product Manager window.
Managing the StorageWorks Edge Switch 2/16
Three options are available for managing the switch through a user interface:
The Product Manager application installed on an HAFM server. Access to the
Product Manager must be through the hp StorageWorks ha-fabric manager
(HAFM) application. These applications are installed on the HAFM server.
The Embedded Web Server (EWS) interface. Using a browser-capable PC with an
internet connection to the switch, you can monitor and manage the switch through
the web server interface embedded in the switch firmware. The interface provides
a GUI similar to the Product Manager application, and supports switch
configuration, statistics monitoring, and basic operation.
To launch the web server interface, enter the switch's IP address as the Internet
uniform resource locator (URL) into any standard browser. Enter a user name and
password at a the login screen. The browser then becomes a management console.
Refer to the web server interface online help for details on use.
NOTE: The default user name for the right to view status and other information is "operator."
The default user name for the right to modify configuration data, perform maintenance tasks, or
perform other options is "administrator." The default password for both user names is
The command line interface (CLI). The CLI allows you to access many HAFM
and Product Manager functions while entering commands during a Telnet session
with the switch. The primary purpose of the CLI is to automate management of a
large number of switches using scripts. The CLI is not an interactive interface; no
checking is done for pre-existing conditions and no prompts display to guide users
through tasks. Refer to the hp StorageWorks CLI reference guide for director 2/64,
edge switch 2/16, and edge switch 2/32 (A6534-96027/AA-RQ7AB-TE).
