Enable and configure ESRS

You can enable support for, and configure EMC Secure Remote Services ( ESRS) on an Isilon cluster in the OneFS Web UI.

Before you begin

The OneFS software must have a signed license before you can enable and configure ESRS.

Also, ESRS gateway server 3.x must be installed and configured before you can enable ESRS for a OneFS 8.1 or later Isilon cluster. The IP address pools that handle gateway connections must exist in the system and must belong to a subnet under groupnet0, which is the default system groupnet.

Procedure

  1. Click Cluster Management > General Settings > Remote Support.
  2. To enable ESRS, click Enable ESRS.

  8. To specify that event notifications must be sent to a fail over SMTP address if ESRS transmission fails, select Use SMTP if ESRS transmission fails.
    The SMTP address is configured at Cluster Management > General Settings > Email Settings.
  9. To send an alert to a customer email address if ESRS transmission fails, select Send email if ESRS transmission fails.
    The email address is configured at Cluster Management > General Settings > Cluster Identity.
