Want to add your shiny MDS Cisco switch into HTnM (Hitachi Tuning Manager) – that’s very easy. All you have to do is to enable cim, preferably secure cim server, and configure agtw (SAN agent) using HTnM cli. How I did it…
- ssh into a switch to configure CIM server. First I copied SSL certificate (self-signed will do well) to configure secure cim server:
- Go to the server’s console of your server to do HTnM part.
- Check /opt/jp1pc/agtw/agent/mds_switch_name/jpcagt.ini to make sure that you have port 5989 and secure option enabled in it./
- Start the agent.
