Huawei iManager U2000 network management system is Huawei’s network management solution for the management and maintenance of data communication equipment. So how to install U2000 single -server system software? This topic will describe how to do it.
Collecting Installation Information
OS Configuration Requirements
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (64-bit)
The server OS can identify a memory with the size only of 32 GB or lower. If the physical memory of the server exceeds 32 GB, the OS can be installed properly, but only 32 GB memory can be identified and used.
Only a single OS can be installed, and the OS can be installed only on disk C.
If the OS is different from the OS patch versions on the live network, re-installing the OS and patches of the required version is recommended to ensure that the U2000 runs properly.
User Name and Password Planning
|User||Default Password||Password Set After Preinstallation|
|Database user sa||Changeme_123||Changeme_123|
|Database user dbuser||None.
The dbuser user does not have a default password. The password of the dbuser user must be configured during U2000 installation.
|U2000 user admin||Changeme_123
The password for the U2000 System Monitor must be the same as that for the U2000 client.
|Msuite user admin||Changeme_123||Changeme_123|
The password is an example only. Change the password after completing the installation.
Disk Partition Scheme
It is required that the installation software be decompressed to an NT file system (NTFS) partition.
|Table Server disk partition list (A single hard disk is 300 GB)|
|Disk C||100||It is used to install the OS and database software.|
|Disk D||Size of the remaining space||It is used to install the U2000 software, store the database data and store the Backup data for the U2000.|
|Table Server disk partition list (A single hard disk is 146 GB)|
|Disk C||40||It is used to install the OS and database software.|
|Disk D||100||It is used to install|
|Table Server disk partition list (A single hard disk is 300 GB)|
|The U2000 software and store the database data.|
|Disk E||Size of the remaining space||It is used to store the backup data for the U2000.|
The basic principles for disk partitioning are as follows:
Disk C, as the system disk, which is used to install the OS and database software.
Disk D is used to install the U2000 software and store the database data.
The remaining space is allocated for free use. It can be used for NMS data backup.
Checking Required Software
IP address setting
At least one NIC has been started. This IP address is not allowed to change, after the installation of U2000, so you plan a fixed use has been fixed.
The following types of IP addresses need to be planned:
IP address of the IMM (Integrated Management Module) on the PC server: For IBM server, IP address of the IMM can be used to remotely log in to a PC server to manage and maintain PC server in Web mode. For example, you can use this IP address for remote OS installation, or use it to maintain the PC server if the OS fails to start properly.
IP address of the iMana on the PC server: for Huawei RH series rack server, IP address of the iMana can be used to remotely login to a PC server to manage and maintain PC server in Web mode. For example, you can use this IP address for remote OS installation, or use it to maintain the PC server if the OS fails to start properly.
System IP address: this IP address can be used to log in to the server for OS management and maintenance as well as the U2000 communication, for example, the communication between the U2000 server and client and between the U2000 server and NEs.
Installing the U2000 Server
Pre-installation Check (Windows 2008)
The U2000 server is powered on.
Disk C, a system disk, which must exist. Otherwise, the U2000 fails to be installed.
1. Ensure that the OS version and disk partition are correct.
2. Ensure that the OS patches are installed.
3. Ensure that the Windows 2008 OS has been activated.
4. Ensure that the Windows 2008 OS is of the 64-bit type.
5. One NIC must have only one IP address.
6. Ensure that Framework 3.5 has started.
The installation of the U2000 server software includes installing the database software. If the database has been installed on the system, check whether the database can meet U2000 installation requirements. If the database does not meet the installation requirements, uninstall and then re-install it. This install guide installation SQL and U2000 at the same time.
The database patch is required for the database installation on the Windows 2008. The database patch software is stored in the OS patch.
Starting the U2000 Installation Program
This topic describes how to install U2000 server software.
If the database has been installed, exit the SQL Server enterprise manager before the U2000 is installed. This operation prevents U2000 installation failures due to database errors.
Ensure that the system time of the U2000 server is set correctly. If the system time is incorrect, the SSL authentication will fail and the U2000 cannot be installed. The system time of the U2000 server is of great importance. Changing the system time during U2000 installation is prohibited.
In the installation process, the installation program needs to start certain services of a network adapter. Thus, the network adapter must be connected to the network; otherwise, the U2000 server cannot be installed.
If the U2000 software has been installed, the client is also installed on the server.
If the SQL Server 2008 has not been installed. The U2000 server software will automatically install the SQL Server 2008.
1. Log in to Windows OS as an OS user with administrator rights.
The name of the directory where the installation packages are stored can contain only letters, digits, and underscores the directory name cannot contain spaces, brackets, or Chinese characters; otherwise, the installation fails.
The name of the OS user cannot contain spaces, otherwise, the installation fails.
2. Starting U2000 installation as follows:
a) Unzip the file, but except for U2000V100R009C00SPC300_client_win32_x86.zip
the U2000V100R009C00SPC300_client_win32_x86.zip just use at install Client.
b) Put all the unzip files to d:/ install_u2000
c) Double-click the install.bat file in the installation package path.
The Set the Installation Environment dialog box will be displayed. If database has been installed on the OS, wait 5 to 10 minutes. If no database has been installed on the OS, wait about 20 to 30 minutes until database installation is complete.
d) After finished installation of SQL, you can see next photo on the program.
3. The Copyright Notice dialog box will be displayed.
4. Click I accept the terms, and click Next to continue. The Select Language dialog box will be displayed.
5. Select a language, such as English.
6. Click Next. The Select Installation Type dialog box will be displayed.
We advise load the license after installation of U2000 Server.
7. The Configure Server dialog box will be displayed.
Set the installation path. For example, d:\oss. We select default.
8. Click Next. The Select Domain dialog box will be displayed.
If the d: \oss path does not exist, the Confirm dialog box will be displayed. Click Yes to create the d:\oss path.
This section assumes that the access, IP, and transport packages are uploaded and decompressed. If only the access package is uploaded and decompressed, the page will display Access domain alone. Select the domain where instances need to be deployed based on the managed devices. By default, an instance is deployed for every component in the selected domain. Components instead of deployment instances are by default installed for the deployment domains that are not selected. Selecting all the displayed domains is recommended. After a domain is selected, deploying instances for the domain is not required. The instances that are deployed by default occupy database space and the default startup of processes occupies resources. To add other domains, upload and decompress the corresponding packages and perform the installation again.
9. Click Next. The Configure Database dialog box will be displayed.
a) If the uploaded and decompressed package involves the transport domain, the Version Style dialog box is displayed.
The following is an example of the differences between the two styles:
? For the Default style, alarms come in the following descending order of severity: Critical, Major, Minor, and Warning.
? For the North American version style, alarms come in the following descending order of severity: Critical, Major, Minor, Not Alarmed, and Not Reported.
b) Click Next. The Version Time slot Mode will be displayed.
c) Select the time slot mode as required, such as Sequential mode. The Sequential mode, a time slot numbering policy recommended by the ITU-T.
The following table lists parameters for the database U2000 user and the database server. (We use all the password is Changeme_123)
|Data File Path||Specifies the path for storing data files. The default installation path is?d:\data.
Please click Browse and change the data file save path. To meet space requirements for long-term running, changing this path to a path on another partition (especially the partition with the largest remaining space) by referring to the disk partition planning before installation is recommended.
Ensure that the disk for saving data files is not a compact disk. If the disk is a compact disk, creating an instance database will fail.
|Server Address||The server address of the database.|
|Server Name||The default server name is DBSVR.|
|Server Port||The default server port is 1433.|
|Administrator Password||Enter a password of the database administrator and refer to the following operations to verify the password.
If the database is installed with the U2000, enter the default password Changeme_123.
If the database has been installed before the U2000 installation, and the administrator password meets the following requirements, enter the database administrator password.
If the database has been installed before the U2000 installation, and the administrator password does not meet the following requirements, change the password based on the following requirements.
The database administrator password must meet the requirements:
The password contains a minimum of eight characters and a maximum of 30 characters.
Other special characters are not supported. Do not include other special characters, such as ()|<>&`!$\”%’=;,space in passwords.
The password cannot be the same as the user name written in either the forward or backward format.
|OSS Database User Password||The OSS database user password must meet the requirements:
As Administrator Password setting.
|Confirm OSS Database User Password||Confirms the DB user password.|
Set the installation parameters and click Next. The Preinstallation Check dialog box will be displayed.
If a check item is abnormal, the Next button is unavailable and the installation fails to be continued. Perform the following operations to solve the issue.
If the remaining space of the OS is insufficient, release the space as required. Click Retry in the Preinstallation Check dialog box until the check item is displayed normally.
If the user database is occupied, perform the following operations to solve the issue.
a. Choose Start > All Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2008 > Configuration Tools > SQL Server Configuration Manager, choose SQL Server Services from the navigation tree, right-click SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) in the right pane, and then choose Stop from the shortcut menu to stop the database server. Then choose Start to start the database server to ensure that no external user accesses the SQL Server database.
b. Click Retry in the Preinstallation Check dialog box until the check item is displayed normally.
If one item among the database command, database version number, database environment variable, and database sorting rule is abnormal, uninstall the database and then install the U2000 again.
Click Next. Verify that the installation information is correct.
For Windows 2008, the system starts installing the database patch when the installation progress reaches 99%. If the following dialog box is displayed, do not manually close it. Otherwise, database patch installation fails.
The system will display a prompt indicating that installation was successfully completed.
After the preceding settings, click Finish to complete U2000 installation. Are you sure you want to restart the operating system now? Dialog box will be displayed.
Optional: In Windows 2008, for installation with a software package, the system automatically installs the database patch. You can click Yes to restart the OS.
Change the OS setting
Modify OS NIC MAC. ***
Change your Server NIC MAC address to our License use of MAC.
Modify OS time.***
Because we are offering the license for the temporary license, it must be used in accordance with the specified MAC address and time period.
The period for 90 days.
When the time goes beyond, need to be modified again.
After modifying the MAC and time, restart the server.
Loading U2000 License
1. Log in to the OS as a user with administrator rights.
You can see the shortcut on the desktop as shown in the above. The server U2000 will co-exist with U2000 Server and U2000 Client.
a) Double click U2000 Server.
b) Double click U2000 Client.
Default password is Changeme_123.
The first time you must modify it.
2. Load the U2000 license file.
Load the license in the GUI.
To save the server disk space, need to delete software package name. Zip in the software packages directory, such as D: \install.
The Network Management System Maintenance Suite is used for U2000 commissioning, maintenance, and redeployment. Generally, the Network Management System Maintenance Suite starts along with the OS.
In the Windows Task Manager dialog box, check whether msdaemon.exe and msserver.exe are listed.
? If the two processes are listed, the MSuite server has started.
? If the two processes are not listed, the MSuite server has not started. Navigate to the C:\OSSENGR\engineering directory and double-click start server to start the MSuite server.
If login to a U2000 client fails, see Failure to Login to the U2000 Server from a U2000 Client to resolve the problem.
