Hitachi UCP Advisor provides pertinent information and allows you to manage operations for connected servers.
- Child Topics
- Compute node inventory
You can obtain a summary of pertinent details for a selected compute node (or Hitachi Compute Blade 500 chassis for UCP 4000 systems) by accessing the
Summary tab from the
UCP Navigator window.
- Modifying a chassis label
You can modify an existing chassis label.
- Replacing a compute server
You can replace an existing ESXi host in a VMware cluster with a new server. The storage settings are automatically updated so that the logical units used by the original host are presented to the newly replaced host, and the datastores (other than local) on the original host are presented to the newly replaced host.
- Modifying a compute server label
You can change the label currently assigned to a server to some other name.
- Upgrading server firmware
You can upgrade the server firmware to the latest level.
- Managing power settings
You can turn power on or off, or reset the power for the server.
- Operating locator IDs
You can identify the location of servers by turning the server lamp on or off from UCP Advisor. These lamps are called locator IDs (LIDs).
- Setting a boot option
You can specify the boot location where the initial operating system is loaded when a server is brought online.
- Listing vSAN datastores
You can get a list of vSAN datastores associated with a given server.
