Verify that you have successfully completed the sequential "Installation Checklist" instructions in
page 21. Once you have successfully completed steps 1 through 8 therein, you can access the
management interfaces using your web-browser, to complete the system setup.
Accessing the SMC
Upon completing the hardware installation, you can access the controller module's web-based
management interface (the SMC) to configure, monitor, and manage the storage system. Invoke your web
browser, and enter the IP address of the controller module's network port in the address field (obtained
during completion of "Installation Checklist" step 8), then press Enter. To sign-in to the SMC, use the default
user name manage and password !manage. If the default user or password—or both—have been
changed for security reasons, enter the secure login credentials instead of the defaults shown above. This
brief Sign In discussion assumes proper web browser setup.
IMPORTANT: For detailed information on accessing and using the SMC, see the "Getting Started"
section in the web-posted Storage Manager Guide.
In addition to summarizing the processes to configure and provision a new system for the first time—using
the wizards—the Getting Started section provides instructions for signing in to the SMC, introduces key
system concepts, addresses browser setup, and provides tips for using the main window and the help
TIP: After signing-in to the SMC, you can use online help as an alternative to consulting the Storage
Configuring and provisioning the storage system
Once you have familiarized yourself with the SMC GUI, use the interface to configure and provision the
storage system. Refer to the following topics within the Storage Management Guide or online help:
• Getting started
• Configuring the system
• Provisioning the system
IMPORTANT: If the system is used in a VMware environment, set the system's Missing LUN Response
option to use its Illegal Request setting. To do so, see either the configuration topic "Changing the missing
LUN response" in the Storage Manager Guide or the command topic "set-advanced-settings" in the CLI
