Creating a VC domain

[ Edited ]

Hello all

I'm in charge of some C7000 enclosures that have been installed by some peop^le months ago.

One has 2xHP 1/10Gb VC-Enet Module and 2xHP 4Gb VC-FC Module

 

Blades servers are running ESX OS and access LUN over the SAN

 

but .. the people who installed this didn't create any VC domain ...

 

I need one ..  to make some specific Fabric configurations,

but when I use the HP Virtual Connect Domain Setup Wizard, it tells me :

"This step will disable network access to all blade servers in the enclosure until Virtual Connect Networks are configured and Virtual Connect Server Profiles have been applied to the servers."

 

Is this network downtime will take a long ?

Do I have to stop applications and servers ?

 

Many thanks in advance

 

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

 

To create or modify VC Domain configuration all the servers in the blade enclosure should be powered off. Please check the cookbook's which has complete details on the Virtual Connect the files to download.

Re: Creating a VC domain

it's a warning message but since you don't have VC domain created, it really does't matter. all those blades shouldn't have any LAN/SAN connectivities before domain is created. the next step just take several secs in general and it's very quick

Hey,

 

We just added to new flex-10 Virtual Connect interconnect modules to our chassis and I'm wondering also about the network connectivity. We have production up and running using other network switches in other interconnect bays, will this really switch off all the network connectivity -> crash the production if I continue?
