Hello all,

Have a nice day! Now I’d like to share with you how to check the running status of the controllers for OceanStor Dorado 8000 V6 and Dorado 18000 V6. Controllers of the storage device are responsible for running storage applications, implementing storage mechanisms (StoragePool, LUN mapping, and striping), and managing alarms. You can learn about the health and running status of a controller by checking its status information on the DeviceManager.

A fault on a controller may impair read/write performance, deteriorate reliability, interrupt services, and cause data loss on the controller module.

If controllers are working properly, the following items are true on the DeviceManager:

  • All of the controllers are in the Normal health status and Online running status.

  • No controller alarm appears on the Current Alarms tab page.


1. Choose Storage > Hardware.

2. In the navigation tree on the left, select the controller enclosure where the controller to be checked resides.

3. Click the controller to be checked in the device view on the right.

The detailed information about the controller is displayed.

4. View the controller module information in the group box that is displayed.

Table 1 describes associated status parameters.

Table 1 Controller status parameters and their meanings



Health Status

  • Normal: The functionality and operating performance of the controller are normal.

  • Faulty: The controller is working improperly.

Running Status

If a controller alarm appears on the Current Alarms tab page, select the alarm and diagnose the problem according to its details and repair suggestions.

This is what I want to talk about today, thank you!
