After recently installing our first 8000 Series 3PAR we
discovered the RCIP ports now default to FSIP ports. The 8000 Series introduced
the ability to use the RCIP ports as FSIP (which we knew) but having them
default as FSIP was a surprise. No worries! A simple change via CLI returns the
ports to RCIP. Be aware, if you try and find RCIP ports in the Management
Console before making the change they will not show up. File Persona on a 3PAR
can only be configured/managed via the StorServ Management Console (SSMC). The
ports will show up in the SSMC but as the default FSIP. Once the ports are
changed they will show up in the Management Console and the SSMC as RCIP ports.
Use the commands after the jump to change the ports via CLI and enjoy!
This is the command to change the ports. You will need to
configure the RCIP IP address and Netmask.
controlport rcip add [-f] <IP_address> <netmask>
The next command sets the gateway on the RCIP port.
controlport rcip gw [-f] <gateway_address>
