Notes on Remote Storage


Notes on Remote Storage
  1. Java applets can no longer be used when the April 2019 update or a later update provided for Oracle Java SE 8 is applied. As a consequence, XSCF Remote Storage Server cannot be started from XSCF Web.
    Even in an environment where you cannot use Java applets, you can start XSCF Remote Storage Server with the Java command from a terminal in the following procedure.
  1. 1. Obtain the archive file for XSCF Remote Storage Server. You can obtain this archive file from the XCP firmware download site.
    This archive file is compatible between the SPARC M12 and SPARC M10. In both model series, you can use the file with all XCP firmware versions supporting the remote storage function.

    2. Extract the archive file for XSCF Remote Storage Server on the terminal.

    3. Execute the following command in the directory that has the extracted archive file.
    Specify the execution path of java.exe according to the environment used.
    The following example shows that the XSCF Remote Storage Server is started by using Oracle Java SE at "C:\rdvd" where the archive file is extracted.
    Example:
image
  1. XSCF Remote Storage Server starts, and the [XSCF Remote Storage Server] screen appears. You can select media on the [XSCF Remote Storage Server] screen.

    The steps after the [XSCF Remote Storage Server] screen appears are the same as the steps when starting XSCF Remote Storage Server from XSCF Web. For details, see "4.6  Using Remote Storage" in the Fujitsu SPARC M12 and Fujitsu M10/SPARC M10 System Operation and Administration Guide.
  1. These notes apply when Java Runtime Environment 8 Update 45 is used and, as described below, an automatic proxy configuration script (PAC file) is used in the Java network settings or by the browser being used. In this case, "The application cannot be run.", "Failed to validate certificate. The application will not be executed.", or another message appears, and the XSCF Remote Storage Server may fail to start.
    When [Use browser settings] is selected in the Java network settings.

    - For Internet Explorer

    The [Use automatic configuration script] check box is selected in [Tools] - [Internet Options] - [Connections] - [LAN settings].

    - For Firefox

    [Automatic proxy configuration URL] is selected in [Tools] - [Options] - [Advanced] - [Network] - [Settings].

    [Use automatic proxy configuration script] is selected in the Java network settings.

    To work around this problem, go to the [Java Control Panel] screen, select [General] - [Network Settings] - [Use proxy server], and change the Java network settings.
  1. Remote storage cannot be connected even when a terminal has more than one network connection.
    In this case, a terminal can be connected to the remote storage if you disable network devices on the terminal that are not used for the XSCF-LAN connection.
  1. Also, if the Hyper-V function in Windows is enabled, a virtual network adapter may be generated automatically. Therefore, remote storage cannot be connected even when there is just one physical network device.
  1. If remote storage is connected through a VPN or other network that performs address translation, the error message "iscsiadm: no records found!" is output and the connection is disabled.
    Do not connect remote storage through a VPN or other network that performs address translation.
