4 HP P6000 Command View
Fixes
• HP P6000 Command View management server time does not match Windows time—The times
now match.
• Virtual disk presentation failed due to unrelated virtual disk in a non-normal state—A virtual disk
in a non-normal state will no longer prevent HP P6000 Command View from gathering presented
units for presentation.
• Yellowevent and attention status displayed in GUI for DR group—The cause of the attention/failure
is now indicated on the DR group property pages.
• SSSU DELETE FOLDER command deletes presented virtual disks—Can no longer delete a virtual
disk family folder directly.You must delete the object(s) in the folder instead.
• DR destination has suspended state enabled—No longer incorrectly reports the suspend state on
the DR destination.
• Deleting virtual disk in HP P6000 Replication Solutions Manager 5.3 takes more time compared
to HP P6000 Replication Solutions Manager 5.2—Performance improvements make deletion of
virtual disks more efficient.
• Duplicate User Name error when creating a DR group—Error no longer occurs when creating a
DR group.
• Semi-colon and single quote characters cause an error when used in object names —Semi-colons
and single quotes no longer cause an error when used in object names.
• Virtual disks without derived unit are not displayed in the Command View GUI—The missing
derived unit is nowrecreated automatically during an array refresh and displayed in the Command
View GUI.
• Virtual disk ACTIVE portion of name missing—ACTIVE portion of virtual disk name now included.
Compatibility and interoperability
EVA3000 and EVA5000 no longer supported
HP P6000 Command View does not support the EVA3000/5000 arrays,nor can they be managed.
This includes management of EVA3000/EVA5000 arrays that are in a Continuous Access configuration.
IPv6 information (array-based management only)
If both IPv4 and IPv6 are installed on a single system,then,by default,HP P6000 Command View
starts on the IPv4 address.To start HP P6000 Command View on a specific address,you must add
the address entry under the webserver section of the cveva.cfg file.For example,to start HP
P6000 Command Viewon IPv6,enter address 0::0 under the webserver section of cveva.cfg.
IPv6 not supported on Windows 2003 Server
Windows 2003 Server does not provide acceptable operation of HP P6000 Command View in an
IPv6 configuration.Consequently,HP P6000 Command View is not supported in IPv6 configurations
on Windows 2003 Server.IPv4 configurations continue to work reliably and are still supported.If
IPv6 is required,HP recommends installing HP P6000 Command View on Windows 2008 Server.
HP Insight Remote Support support on server-based HP P6000 Command View
HP P6000 Command Viewserver-based version is supported with HP Insight Remote Support Advanced
and Standard 5.7.
HP P6000 Command View 5
Clarifying HP P6000 array-based management support
HP P6000 Command View array-based management:
• Manages only one array.
• Cannot manage HP P6000 Continuous Access relationships (HP P6000 Command View can only
see one side of the DR group).High availability solutions that rely on HP P6000 Continuous
Access,like HP Cluster Extension Software (CLX) and HP Metrocluster,cannot be managed using
HP P6000 Command View array-based management.
• Supports Insight Remote Support Standard,starting with HP Command ViewEVA 9.1,and supports
both Insight Remote Support Standard and Insight Remote Support Advanced,starting with HP
P6000 Command View 9.4.
NOTE:HP P6000 Command View is only supported with HP Insight Remote Support Advanced
and Standard 5.7.
• Does not support HP SMI-S EVA and HP P6000 Performance Data Collector natively.However,
both HP SMI-S EVA and HP P6000 Performance Data Collector support EVAs that are managed
by HP P6000 Command View array-based management.To do so,install the software on a
Windows server from the HP P6000 Command View installer.With the HP SMI-S EVA provider,
be sure to give the IP address and credentials of the array running HP P6000 Command View to
the provider.See the HP P6000 Command View Installation Guide for instructions.
• Supports hard disk drive firmware upgrades when running HP P6000 Command View 9.4 and
XCS 10000000 or XCS 10001000.
Installation and upgrade requirements
For supported HP P6000 Command View upgrade paths,see Table 2.1,“HP P6000 Command View
upgrade support,” in the HP P6000 Enterprise Virtual Array Compatibility Reference.For complete
information on requirements and installation and upgrade procedures,see the HP P6000 Command
View Installation Guide.
Browser support
Internet Explorer 8.0 or later or FireFox 4.0 or later are the supported browsers for accessing HP
P6000 software user interfaces.Only 32-bit browsers are supported.If the browser version you are
using is earlier,you must upgrade your browser.When using HP Command View,HP Performance
Advisor,or HP Management Integration Framework,a minimum of Adobe Flash Player 10 is required
on the browser you are using.

Installing HP P6000 Command View 10.0 with HP Command View for Tape Libraries
IMPORTANT:
• HP P6000 Command View must be upgraded to version 10.0 before installing or upgrading HP
Replication Solutions Manager to version 5.4 or HP Command View for Tape Libraries to version
2.6,if all three products are installed on the same server.
• If HP Command View for Tape Libraries is installed,you must remove it before installing HP P6000
Command View 10.0.
• HP recommends that you install HP Command View for Tape Libraries 2.6 before installing HP
P6000 Replication Solutions Manager to avoid Postgre SQL error messages.
6 HP P6000 Command View
MIF configuration data lost if an upgrade fails
If an upgrade from HP P6000 Command View 9.3 or 9.4 to HP P6000 Command View 10.0 does
not complete successfully,all existing Command View files will be removed.This includes the MIF
configuration data which is lost and will have to be recreated when the 10.0 upgrade is completed.
Set server to the current time before installing HP P6000 Command View
Before starting HP P6000 Command View installation,make sure the time on the server (array-based
management or server-based management) is properly set.If the system time is not set properly,the
certificate generated during installation may be invalid and you will not be able to login to HP P6000
Command View,MIF Security GUI,or the MIF Configuration GUI.If this occurs,it will be necessary
to use one of the following methods to set the system time properly and regenerate a valid certificate.
For array-based management
1.Change the time on the server from which the browser is launched to match the time on the
array-based management machine.
2.Login to the MIF Security GUI.
3.Run HP P6000 Command View and change the time on the array-based management machine
using the set time options.
4.Generate the certificate again by moving the array-based management machine to a new
management group.
For server-based management
1.Change the time on the server from which the browser is launched to match the time on the
server-based management machine.
2.Log in to the MIF Security GUI.
3.Correct the server date and time on the server-based management machine.
4.Generate the certificate again by moving the server-based management machine to a new
management group.
Custom component setup from HP P6000 Command View Software Suite limited from HP P6000
SmartStart after Command View is installed
With this release of HP P6000 SmartStart,you will use the HP P6000 Command View installer to
perform a custom installation of the software suite;however,after HP P6000 Command View has
been installed and resides on the server,HP P6000 SmartStart will no longer start the HP P6000
Command View installer,and you will not be able to perform custom installations of other applications
from HP P6000 SmartStart.
If you want to perform a custom installation of other applications in the HP P6000 Command View
Suite after HP P6000 Command View has been installed,you will need to launch the HP P6000
Command View installer directly,using the P6000SmartStart.exe pop-up window or by double
clicking bin\installers\CV\HP P6000 Command View Software Suite.exe.
NOTE:See the HP P6000 Command View Installation Guide for additional information.
Workarounds and limitations
Most of the issues described in this section have a workaround and include a resolution.Some,
however,are limitations and should be noted for reference.
P6000 disk enclosures not powering up automatically
P6000 disk enclosures should power up automatically.If this does not happen,you many need to
power them on manually.For the correct procedure on powering up the disk enclosures,see
“Documentation updates” (page 27)
HP P6000 Command View 7
Trace history disabled in HP P6000 Command View trace logs
In HP Command ViewEVA 9.2 or later on both array-based and server-based management,the history
of trace information that accompanies a critical (level 1) error log in the cvevatrace*.log files is
disabled by default.To generate sufficient trace information when a critical error log is observed in
the trace files,change the configuration parameter backtrace=0 to backtrace=1 at the beginning
of the file ccbtrace.cfg.This file is located in the default HP P6000 Command View installation
directory,C:\Program Files\Hewlett-Packard\Sanworks\Element Manager for
StorageWorks HSV\.You must restart the management server
It is not necessary to restart the entire management host for this change to take effect.Restarting the
HP P6000 Command View service is all that is necessary.
CAUTION:Enabling trace history may adversely affect HP P6000 Command View performance.
HP Insight Remote Support Advanced software supported with HP P6000 Command View array-based
management
In addition to server-based management,HP Insight Remote Support Advanced software is supported
with array-based management.To enable array-based management support,you must set identical
credentials for both the HP P6000 Command View host (where you used discoverer.bat to set
up the connection to array-based management) and the array management module.
Verifying HP P6000 Command View code
HP products deliver on the “trustworthy and reliable” brand promise.Creating and delivering an
electronic cryptographic"signature"for HP code (such as software,firmware,drivers,applications,
patches,and solutions) provides an industry-standard method to verify the integrity and authenticity
of the code you receive from HP before deployment.Digitally signed code helps you manage your
security vulnerability risk from using non-HP versions of the software and firmware,which may fail to
meet expectations and may contain malicious code (like a virus or worm).
To verify the HP P6000 Command View code before installing the software,contact your HP
representative for instructions.
Emulex HBA requires latest driver version
Servers that use an Emulex HBA with Storport drivers (earlier than version 5-2.00a12) may experience

Setting the HP Management Integration Framework Web Service IP address in a multi-homed
configuration
For authentication,on a multi-homed machine (a machine with multiple NICs),HP Management
Integration Framework binds to the first IP address reported by the operating system.If this is not the
desired IP address,set the HP Management Integration Framework Web Service IP address as follows:
1.Navigate to the HP Management Integration Framework Configuration GUI:
The Configuration window opens.
a.Open HP P6000 Command View.
b.In the settings point of view,click the instance of HP P6000 Command View.
c.Select Management Options+Configure Management Integration Framework.
HP P6000 Command View 9
2.Expand the General pane.
3.In the Web Service IP Address box,enter the IP address.
4.Click Save Changes.
Wait until the change is saved.
5.Click Restart Service.
HP Management Integration Framework will bind to the IP address.
Array-based management proxy displays incorrectly
In an array-based management configuration,the managed proxy displayed will be different from
that of the web access point.When a layered application uses this information,it will see different IP
addresses in Managed Proxy and Launch URL.Although the management proxy displays incorrectly,
the URL for HP P6000 Command View launches the array-based management correctly.
Cannot access HP P6000 Command View from HP Systems Insight Manager or HP P6000 Replication
Solutions Manager
To log on to HP P6000 Command View directly from HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM) or HP
P6000 Replication Solutions Manager,a trust relationship,referred to as Single Sign-on,must be
established between the applications.When the trust relationship is broken,HP P6000 Command
View cannot be run from HP SIM or HP P6000 Replication Solutions Manager.In this case,you must
re-establish the trust relationship.See “Single Sign-on from HP Systems Insight Manager” in the HP
P6000 Command View User Guide.
Using HP P6000 Command View for Single Sign-on with HP SIM 5.3
Although launching HP P6000 Command View 10.0 or later from HP SIM5.3 opens another browser
window with a login screen for HP P6000 Command View for Single Sign-on (automatic login),the
feature needs HP SIM 6.0 to work as designed.
Install of HP Command View for Tape Libraries 2.6 fails during database install
When you install HP Command View for Tape Libraries 2.6,an error message is displayed indicating
that installation of the database has failed.This error message may be displayed if Cygwin is installed
on the server and appears in the path environment variable.If this is the cause of the failure,you can
temporarily remove Cygwin from the path and attempt installation again as follows:
1.Right-click My Computer.
2.Select Properties.
The System Properties dialog box opens.
3.If Cygwin appears in the path environment in either the User variables or the System variables,
remove it.
4.Click the Advanced tab and select Environment Variables.
The Environment Variables dialog box opens.
5.Save your changes and click OK twice to exit the Environment Variables and System Property
windows.
6.Reinstall HP Command View for Tape Libraries 2.6.
After successful installation,you can add Cygwin back into the PATH environment variable.
Internet Explorer 8 language code change
In Japan,Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 (IE8) installs using the Japanese language code ja_JP by default.
This is a change from earlier and current English versions,which default to ja.To use HP P6000
Command View with IE8 as a Japanese client,you must set the browser language preference ja.To
change the language preference,select Tools→Languages→Language→Add.
10 HP P6000 Command View
Setting the Network Time Protocol server time using array-based management
When setting the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server time using array-based management,the system
time is not updated immediately.The system time should update to match the NTP server within 10
minutes.
Not able to log in to HP Replication Solutions Manager server
If the Windows TEMP environment variable is not set correctly,you may not be able to log in to the
HP Replication Solutions Manager server.Ensure that the TEMP environment variable is pointing to
an existing folder and the folder is accessible.
Best practice for online migration
Before initiating the online migration operation,be sure to perform a full backup of the virtual disk.
Write cache policy not maintained when migrating a virtual disk
When migrating the Vraid type and/or disk group of a virtual disk using the Online virtual disk
migration feature,the write cache policy is set to write-back.If the virtual disk had write cache policy
set to write-through,the policy is changed to write-back.
Multi-home Agent IP does not change for SNMP traps for different VLANs
Server-based HP P6000 Command View can be installed on a multi-homed server where multiple IP
addresses are configured.The array can be accessed fromany of the IP addresses of the server through
HP P6000 Command View.Consider the following when using HP P6000 Command View on a
multi-homed server:
• If the network is not accessible through an IP address on the server,the array will remain actively
managed by HP P6000 Command View on that IP address.However,it may be necessary to use
an HP P6000 Command View instance on another IP address to take management of the array
away from the inaccessible HP P6000 Command View instance.
• When SNMP traps are configured from HP P6000 Command View,the SNMP agent IP address
that generates the trap will be the same,regardless of the destination IP address to which the trap
is to be sent.The agent IP address will be the IP address from which the array is actively managed.
Online virtual disk migration limitation
HP P6000 Command View should not be restarted or management of the array transferred while a
migration is in progress.Doing so will cause HP P6000 Command View to abandon the migration
tasks,leaving behind temporary mirrorclones that must be deleted manually.This does not impact host
I/O directed at the original virtual disk.
Changing the management IP address of an iSCSI controller using the CLI
When the management IP address of the iSCSI controller is changed using the CLI,HP P6000 Command
View loses connection with the iSCSI controller,resulting in a Not Available status displayed in the
iSCSI controller GUI pages.To correct this,use the HP P6000 Command View GUI to delete the
existing iSCSI controller,and then add the new IP address using the Add iSCSI controller page.
Using an FCoE CNA-based server with MPX200 connectivity
When managing an EVA using an FCoE Converged Network Adapter-based server and through
MPX200 connectivity,unpresenting the last FCoE LUN from the MPX200 iSCSI controller may cause
HP P6000 Command Viewto lose communication with the array.To resolve this issue,use the lunmask
add wizard in the MPX200 CLI to present LUN 0 from each array target WWN to each MPX200
FCoE port and to each management server FCoE-CNA port.To gather the necessary information,use
the show fc,show targets,and show initiators MPX200 CLI commands.Then,use the
lunmask add wizard.
HP P6000 Command View 11
iSCSI or iSCSI/FCoE module configuration file indicates zero bytes
When saving the iSCSI or iSCSI/FCoE module configuration (from the iSCSI Controller Configuration
page in HP P6000 Command View),HP P6000 Command View may indicate the file size is zero
bytes.If this occurs,you must restart the controller and then save the configuration again by performing
the following steps:
1.Select the applicable iSCSI controller in the navigation pane.
2.Select Shutdown on the iSCSI Controller Properties window.
3.Select Restart on the iSCSI Controller Shutdown Properties window.
4.After the controller has restarted,select the iSCSI controller in the navigation pane.
5.Select Set Options.
6.Select Save/Restore Configuration.
7.Select Save Configuration.
If you attempt to restore the configuration from a zero byte file,the iSCSI or iSCSI/FCoE module
configuration will not be restored and it may cause the HP P6000 Command View content page to
hang.
iSCSI/FCoE controller inaccessible from HP P6000 Command View
If an iSCSI/FCoE controller is inaccessible from HP P6000 Command View,avoid performing any
management operations on that controller and any iSCSI/FCoE objects displayed in HP P6000
Command View.
Installer displays error that user does not have administrator privileges
Ensure that you add your user name to the local Administrators group before installing version 10.0
or upgrading from an earlier version;otherwise,you may receive an error message stating that you
do not have administrator privileges.
Creating disk groups with double protection level
When creating a disk group with double protection level on an array running XCS 1000000 and
later,a minimum of 10 disk drives is required on the array.If the disk group contains fewer than 10
drives and double protection is requested,only single protection level will be used.
If all the physical disks in the disk group are of the same capacity,double protection level is achieved
by reserving capacity equal to four times the capacity of a single disk.If the physical disks in the disk
group are of different capacities,double protection is achieved by reserving capacity equal to the
sum of the four highest capacity disks.
Cannot connect to HP P6000 Command View from Firefox 4.0 in an IPV6 environment
When using Firefox 4.0 in an IPV6 environment,the browser cannot connect to HP P6000 Command
View because the required certificate is not trusted.In this situation,it will be necessary to use Internet
Explorer or Firefox 3.6 to save the required certificate locally and then import it manually into Firefox
4.0.Use the appropriate procedure to import the certificate.Once the certificate is imported,the
browser will be able to connect to HP P6000 Command View.

Downgrading from HP P6000 Command View 10.0
Use the following instructions when downgrading from HP P6000 Command View 10.0 to 9.4,9.3,
or 9.2:
• Array-based management system—After downgrading,reset the system using the reset button.
Failing to reset the system may result in the inability to open the MIF Security GUI and the MIF
Configuration GUI after loading HP P6000 Command View 9.4.
• Server-based management system—To downgrade,perform a complete uninstall of HP P6000
Command View 10.0 and then reinstall the earlier version.
LDAP security domain not supported in management group consisting of array-based management
only
Adding an LDAP security domain for authentication is only supported for machines in a management
group with a server-based management machine.It is not supported for machines in a management
group consisting of array-based management only.
Array code load fails in VMware Guest OS configuration
Attempting to perform a code load to an array accessed through VMware Guest configuration may
fail with the following error message:
The controller is temporarily busy and it cannot process the request.
Retry the request later.
The may occur when performing a code load to an array that is initialized or un-initialized.The problem
occurs in VMware SX 3.5,4.0 and 4.1,but does not occur in VMware direct configuration or normal
sever.
Files not removed during uninstall of HP P6000 Command View
When uninistalling HP P6000 Command View,some files may not be removed.This may occur because
the file is locked by another application or has been marked for deletion by Windows.The presence
of these will not impact the reinstallation of HP P6000 Command View.

HP Storage System Scripting Utility 10.0
This section describes HP SSSU 10.0 enhancements,fixes,limitations,and other information.
Enhancements
• HP SSSU now returns exit codes to the operating system.
• A wait_until command is now available which will wait until the object reaches the specified
state
• HP SSSU nowuses asynchronous commands to avoid locking resources until a command completes.
• HP SSSU times out and generates an error response if HP P6000 Command Viewdoes not respond
within a specified interval of time.
Limitations and workarounds
• If you use the CODELOAD DISK command to upgrade firmware on multiple disk drives,no error
is displayed for disks configured with Vraid0.
Syntax error when capturing configuration of array in DR relationship
When using HP SSSU to capture the configuration of an array that is in a DR relationship,the resulting
configuration file contains a syntax error that renders the file unusable when restoring the configuration.
The capture configuration incorrectly captures two properties at a time for the SET DR_GROUP
command:
SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DR Group 001" LINK_DOWN_AUTOSUSPEND=DISABLE
SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DR Group 001" LINK_DOWN_AUTOSUSPEND=DISABLE
FULLCOPY_AUTOSUSPEND=ENABLE
Attempting a restore using a file with this syntax error will fail because HP SSSU attempts to set two
properties at a time.
After capturing the configuration,edit the SET DR_GROUP command in the configuration file as
follows:
SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DR Group 001" LINK_DOWN_AUTOSUSPEND=DISABLE
SET DR_GROUP "\Data Replication\DR Group 001" FULLCOPY_AUTOSUSPEND=ENABLE
Editing the file before it is needed enables you to restore the configuration successfully,if necessary.
Running HP SSSU in OpenVMS
There are two options for running HP SSSU in OpenVMS:
• Change to the directory where HP SSSU is installed and run the application from there.
• To run HP SSSU from any directory,set an environment variable to the HP SSSU executable file
name and path.For example:Env_Var_Name :== [Path] file_name_of_executable
HP SSSU memory utilization issue on VMware ESX 3.5
In VMware ESX 3.5,if HP SSSU closes due to a memory utilization issue,increase the console memory
to more than 400 MB.
HP SSSU does not create an FCoE host with HP-UX
The HP P6000 Command View GUI enables you to create an FCoE host with operating system type
as HPUX.However,HP SSSU does not support this operation.
HP SSSU may hang when using long commands on Solaris
When using long commands on Solaris,the HP SSSU process may hang.This is a result of how Solaris
handles long commands.
HP Storage System Scripting Utility 10.0 25
