DSCLI issue connecting to ds8k

Hi all,
I installed dscli v7.7.21 on Virtual Appliance 2.6 and I created on the storage Ds8k the user lpar2rrd. 
The  connection test is ok
perl /home/stor2rrd/stor2rrd/bin/conntest.pl 192.168.1.100 1750
Connection to "192.168.1.100" on port "1750" is ok

But if I try connect to the storage I got this error:

[lpar2rrd@tix-stor2rrd-p1 ~]$ /opt/ibm/dscli/dscli  -hmc1 192.168.1.100 -user lpar2rrd  
CMUN00018E  Unable to connect to the management console server
Date/Time: June 5, 2020 8:30:36 PM CEST IBM DSCLI Version: 7.7.21.39 DS: -
I also configured the storage device on the browser interface and if I test the connection the error is: Under user: lpar2rrd DSCLI command failed: "/opt/ibm/dscli/dscli -hmc1 192.168.1.106 -user lpar2rrd whoami" Date/Time: June 5, 2020 8:34:08 PM CEST IBM DSCLI Version: 7.7.21.39 DS: - CMUN00018E whoami: : Unable to connect to the management console server lpar2rrd user on all IBM DS8K must belong to "monitor" role at least But the user lpar2rrd is correctly assigned to the role 'Monitor'. Infact I can login whith this user to the storage gui Is the dscli supported in the virtual appliance? Any suggestion? Regards Giuseppe

  • Hi,

    are you sure that DSCli version is compatible with the storage firmware?
  • Hi Pavel, I think it is compatible, but tomorrow I check if there is a newer version of dscli


  • Hi installed the last version of DSCLI and now it works fine!

    Thanks
    Giuseppe
  • Hi I have the same issue,

    Date/Time: April 29, 2021 8:50:32 AM CEST IBM DSCLI Version: 7.6.30.157 DS: -
    CMUN00018E ver: : Unable to connect to the management console server

    noting that i installed DSCLI same version on windows server and its connecting normally to the storage. Any ideas?
  • is this working?
      /opt/ibm/dscli/dscli -hmc1 <IP1> -hmc2 <IP2> -user stor2rrd ver -l


  • same result:

    Date/Time: April 29, 2021 10:26:07 AM CEST IBM DSCLI Version: 7.6.30.157 DS: -
    CMUN00018E ver: : Unable to connect to the management console server

  • go for IBM support, DSCli does not work properly
  • are you sure that you have enabled network connection from stor2rrd server to the DS8k? ports 1750, 1751


  • API host network connection: OK
    TCP connection to X.X.X.X:1750 is OK.
    TCP connection to X.X.X.X:1751 has failed! Open it on the firewall. (Warning)

    Crontab test: OK


    API authorization: NOK
    Under user: lpar2rrd
    DSCLI command failed: "/opt/ibm/dscli/dscli -hmc1 X.X.X.X -user lpar2rrd whoami"

    lpar2rrd user on all IBM DS8K must belong to "monitor" role at least
  • the above error is displayed from the GUI
  • open this port as per above message:
    TCP connection to X.X.X.X:1751 has failed! Open it on the firewall. (Warning)


  • according to the network team all ports are open. unless there is something to be done on DS8k or on Stor2rrd Virtual appliance?
  • telnet <IP> 1751
  • telnet 1750 successful but 1751 failed
  • output pls

    failed means that it hangs, got reset packet .... base on that is posible to find out what happened if firewall filters it, if nothing liste on thet port on the storage ...
  • edited April 29
    it remains: Trying X.X.X.X... until i go out
  • pls this output again

    telnet <IP> 1751

  • telnet X.X.X.X 1751
    Trying X.X.X.X...
    telnet: connect to address X.X.X.X: Connection timed out

  • it is filtered by a firewall
  • although network team are saying that there is no firewall between them
  • then it hangs on the storage, involve IBM support, we are not able to help you, DScli is not our software
  • I just tried the telnet 1751 from the Windows Server where the DSCLI command is functional, the result is the same:

    C:\Windows\system32>telnet X.X.X.X 1751
    Connecting To X.X.X.X...Could not open connection to the host, on port 1751: Connect failed
  • ok will open a case with IBM Storage support
  • ok, then it has nothing with that port, go for IBM support ....
