Scenario 2: Defining network connectivity before adding a c7000 enclosure to manage

In this scenario, you configure the logical interconnect group, including its uplink sets, and the enclosure group before you add the enclosure for management. After you define those configurations, the process is the same as adding an enclosure to an existing enclosure group. This scenario creates a single logical interconnect group for the enclosure.

Resource

Task

Description

Logical Interconnect Groups
  1. Create at least one logical interconnect group.

  • You add uplink sets as part of creating a logical interconnect group. Ensure that at least one of the uplink sets you add includes an uplink port to the data center networks you want to access.

Enclosure Groups
  1. Create an enclosure group.

  • You can create an enclosure group with logical interconnect groups initially, or you can create an enclosure group that does not specify logical interconnect groups, and then add the logical interconnect groups later.

Enclosures
  1. Add the enclosure.

  • Select Add enclosure for management.

  • Specify the enclosure group you created.

  • Select a firmware baseline and an HPE OneView Advanced licensing option.

Server Profiles

and

Server Hardware
  1. Do one of the following:

    • Create a server profile manually or from a server profile template, and assign it to the server hardware.

    • Copy a server profile and assign it to the server hardware, then edit the server profile as necessary.

  2. Power on the server hardware.

For a server blade to connect to a data center network, it must have a server profile assigned to it, and that server profile must include a connection to either the network or a network set that includes the network:

  • If there is an existing server profile that matches how you want the server hardware configured, you can copy that server profile and assign it to the server hardware.

  • Otherwise, you must create or copy and modify a server profile that includes at least one connection to the network or a network set that contains the network.

  • Server profiles contain much more configuration information than the connections to networks.
