If you change the storage system IP address or the maintenance password, edit the Storage Device List to reflect the change.

  1. If your network uses the spanning tree protocol (STP) Bridge Protocol Data Unit (BPDU) guard on your network, perform the following Registry changes. Otherwise, skip to step 2:

    1. If you use the physical SVP supplied by Hitachi Vantara, verify the following connections.

      SVP LAN Port Description
      1 Do not connect a cable to the LAN 1 port at this time. You will connect to this port after you complete the Initial Startup wizard.
      2 Connect the LAN 2 port to a Windows-based management console.
      3 The LAN 3 port is already connected to the user LAN port on controller 1.
      4 The LAN 4 port is already connected to the user LAN port on controller 2.

  6. Change the CTL1 and CTL2 LAN IP addresses, as required.

  7. Change the properties of the network bridge to reflect your IP address, subnet, and default gateway settings.

  8. To verify that the new LAN IP settings are appropriate for your environment, exit to a command prompt (DOS) window and ping controller 1 and controller 2 using the new IP addresses. Do not proceed until this step is successful.

  9. In the Storage Device List window, click the SVP IP address setting in the top-right of the window.

  10. Change the SVP IP address to match the new bridge IP address setting, and then click Apply.

  11. In the Storage Device List window, click Edit.

  12. Select the Connect Information check box, change the IP addresses for CTL1 and CTL2, and then click Apply.

  13. In the Storage Device List window, click Start Service. At the confirmation message, click Confirm.

      The 83xxxxyyyyyy directory is created when the following storage systems are registered in the Storage Device List window:
      • 6000: VSP G800 or VSP F800
      • 4000: VSP G400, G600 or VSP F400, F600
