Also noticed that spa.cfg is available but contentrouter.cfg is not present.,

$ ls -ltr /MSDP_pool/etc/puredisk/contentrouter.cfg
ls: cannot access /MSDP_pool/etc/puredisk/contentrouter.cfg: No such file or directory

$ ls -ltr /MSDP_pool/etc/puredisk/spa.cfg

Verified that SYMCPddea package is already installed in my media server

$ rpm -q SYMCpddea

Have you tried to create the storage server manually via CLI?

Hi Riaan

Thanks for your response.,

Yes we tried to configure via CLI also, we are getting the below error - 2060023

$nbdevconfig -creatests -stype PureDisk -storage_server xxxxx -media_server xxxxx
Storage server xxxxx has been successfully created


$/usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpconfig -add -storage_server xxxxx -stype PureDisk -sts_user_id yyyyy
Enter the OpenStorage host's password for User Id yyyyy:

Please re-enter the OpenStorage host's password to confirm it:

Failed to open server connection to type PureDisk server xxxxx: Error = 2060023
server is shut down
Authorization failed for OpenStorage server
xxxxx

nbdevconfig command completed successfully, but while adding credentials its throughing the error as server is shutdown.,

Hi,

Actually i tried of creating the STS and adding the credentials from master server - it failed.,

But, now i had added the credentails from the Medai server (From Storage server itself) - It worked fine.,

$ /usr/openv/volmgr/bin/tpconfig -add -storage_server xxxxx -stype PureDisk -sts_user_id yyyyy
Enter the OpenStorage host's password for User Id yyyyy

Please re-enter the OpenStorage host's password to confirm it:

Now the authentication went successful.,

But when i open the Storage server from the GUI - Storage path & DB path's are empty, how can i enter those details from the command line., Also the entered SPA ID/PWD is not displaying in the properties.,

refer the attached output of STS window

FInally it worked out - i created Storage server using nbdevconfig command, and credentials were authenticated using tpconfig -add command from the MSDP Media server and using the below tech note points i just configured the Storage path, SPA ID & PWD.

  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdevconfig -getconfig -storage_serverstorage_server_name -stype PureDisk -configlist file.txt 
  •  vi /file.txt . Then, fulfill in this file as follows:
V6.5 "storagepath" "/Storage" string
V6.5 "spalogin" "user_name" string
V6.5 "spapasswd" "user_password" string
V6.5 "spalogretention" "2" int
V6.5 "verboselevel" "5" int
 
  • /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/admincmd/nbdevconfig -setconfig -storage_servermedia_server_name -stype PureDisk -configlist file.txt

Finally it worked out - Am able to configure Disk pool on top of it.

Thanks for your help
