Gathering the information for verifying the MetroCluster configuration

To verify that the MetroCluster configuration is configured correctly, you must first collect information related to various components that are used in the configuration, such as switches, FibreBridge 6500N and so on. This information gathered is used for is then used for verifying a takeover and giveback operations.

  1. Collect and make a note of the IP address, user IDs, and passwords of the storage controllers at each node:
      Node A Node B
    IP address    
    User ID    
    Password    
  2. Collect and make a note of the IP addresses, User IDs and password of the four switches used at both the nodes:
      Node A_Switch 1 Node A_Switch 2 Node B_Switch 3 Node B_Switch 4
    IP address        
    User ID        
    Password        
    ISL1        
    ISL2        
  3. Collect and make a note of the IP address, UserID and password of the FibreBridge 6500N at both the nodes:
      Node A_Bridge 1 Node B_Bridge2
    IP address    
    User ID    
    Password    

Perform the takeover and giveback operation.
