SAN v7000: How to fix broken HTTP web-GUI

I see the Dude.


I thought i would never write about storage on this blog, but it turns out strange things happen to SAN”s as well. I do normally not work with SAN that much, the ones im familiar to is IBM DS3400 and Storeweize v7000. Today the v7000 stoped answer to https, so we could not manage it with the web gui.

Luckily one of the nodes still got HTTP service up. So here is what i did:

  1. Connect to the Node.
  2. Chose the Node you would like to restart the tomcat on (webserver).
  3. Go to “Restart Service”

4.  And chose to restart the Web server (Tomcat)

If you don’t have the same amount of luck as i had. You will have to restart the web server using CLI. You can only run satask commands if you connected to the CLI using the SSH private key which is associated with the user called superuser. No other SSH key will allow you to run satask commands:
