Hello, engineers!

I want to add some hosts to FusionCompute 8.0.

Is there anyone who can share some guidance documents?

Thanks!

Hello, friend!

If you want to add a large number of hosts, you are advised to use a template to add hosts in batches.

1. In the navigation pane, click resource pool.

2. On the Cluster tab page, click the target cluster.

3. In the upper right corner of the page, choose More Batch Operation > Batch Add Hosts.

Figure  Batch Add Hosts

Batch Add Hosts


4. Click Download Template.

5. Download the template to the local PC.

The default file name of the template is HostYYYY-MM-DD HHMMSSXXX.xls.

6. Open the template and set the required parameters for the host.

The parameters include:

  • Host IP Address: Enter the management IP address of the host.

  • Host Name

  • Host Description

  • BMC IP Address: Enter the BMC IP address of the host. This parameter is required if power management automation needs to be set.

  • BMC Username: Enter the username for logging in to the BMC of the host. This parameter is required if power management automation needs to be set.

  • BMC Password: Enter the password for logging in to the BMC of the host. This parameter is required if power management automation needs to be set.

  • Use the site time sync policy: If you set this parameter to Yes, the site time synchronization policy is automatically applied on the host after the host is successfully added. This configuration requires the restart of CNA management processes, which will interrupt host services for 3 to 5 minutes. If you set this parameter to No, you need to manually configure a time synchronization policy for the host after it is added.

Note: The host IP address and the BMC IP address use the same IP protocol, IPv4 or IPv6, as the management IP address of the VRM node does.

15. Save and close the template.

16. Click Select next to Import Template on the Batch Add Hosts page.

17. Select the template and click Open.

18. Click OK.

You can click Recent Tasks in the lower left corner to view the task progress.

Hope this helps!
