    This is a full open source plugin that implements HP 3PAR storage support in UCS Director.

    Most common tasks are implemented (creating/editing/deleting volumes, hosts, host sets, volume sets, CPGs, VLUNs, snapshots and copies) as well as a GUI to operate these features.

     

    It is released under an open source MIT-style license.

     

    Downloading & Installing

    Visit the releases page for the latest version. You can download the source code and modify it if you wish under the terms of the license.

     

    To install you will first need to enable the WSAPI on your 3PAR array. Login via ssh and issue the following command:

    startwsapi

     

    You can check if it's running by issuing:

    showwsapi

     

    This plugin currently cannot be distributed as a binary. It's easy to compile it yourself - instructions here.

     

    Once the WSAPI is enabled and the plugin compiled, you can install the UCS Director plugin:

    1. Navigate to Administration -> Open Automation
    2. Select Add and select HP3Par-plugin.zip to upload
    3. Once it has finished uploading, select the plugin and click Enable to mark it as active
    4. ssh to your UCS Director installation as shelladmin and select 3 to stop services and y to confirm
    5. Select 4 to start services again

     

    Note: It may take up to 15 minutes for UCS Director to restart during this time. You can view progress by selecting 18.

     

    Once UCS Director has come back online, navigate to Administration -> Physical Accounts, select the Physical Accounts tab and click Add.

     

    Select HP 3Par as the account type and fill out the form to add it. From here you can use it like you would any other storage account in UCS Director.
