Como instalar el Dell PowerVault™ MD Storage Manager en Ubuntu

Miércoles, 8 de enero de 2014 Dejar un comentario Ir a comentarios

PowerVault™ MD Storage Manager, es un software que se utiliza para administrar los storages Dell.
Es un producto Javacoso, que corre en cualquier plataforma, pero el paquete de instalacion solo soporta distribuciones que usen RPM. Aquí veremos la forma de correrlo en Debian/Ubuntu.
Primero, debemos bajar el paquete de instalacion desde la pagina de Dell (para nuestro storage especifico) o usar el que viene en el CD.

Descomprimir el paquete en alguna ubicación temporaria y luego ejecutar el instalador, que debe estar dentro del directorio ‘MDSS/Linux’. Seguir todas las instrucciones en pantalla, son bastante simples / intuitivas.

# cd MDSS/linux/
# ./mdss_install.bin

Una vez que termina & reinicia el equipo, debemos ir al directorio
/opt/dell/mdstoragesoftware/mdstoragemanager, en donde el instalador nos dejó
los paquetes RPM sin instalar y convertilos a .DEB usando Alien.

Para ello:

cd /opt/dell/mdstoragesoftware/mdstoragemanager
sudo apt-get install alien -y
sudo alien --scripts -v *.rpm
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

(si falla el dpkg por alguna dependencia, volver a ejecutar la ultima linea del dpkg varias veces)

Una vez instalado, debemos modificar los scripts para que funcionen correctamente en nuestro sistema.

Debemos ir a /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/ y editar 3 archivos: SMcli, SMclient y SMmonitor y en los 3, se debe modificar la primer linea, en donde dice ‘#!/bin/sh’ cambiarlo por: ‘#!/bin/bash’

vim /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMcli
vim /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient
vim /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMmonitor

Editar en cada uno la primer linea y donde dice:

#!/bin/sh

Por:

#!/bin/bash

Por ultimo, para que el MD funcione, necesita ser ejecutado como root, por lo tanto debemos modificar el acceso directo, para que use sudo al momento de lanzarlo.

vim /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient.desktop

y debemos dejarlo similar a esto:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Modular Disk Storage Manager
Comment=Configures and manages Dell Storage Arrays
Name[en_US.ISO8859-1]=Modular Disk Storage Manager
GenericName=Modular Disk Storage Manager
GenericName[en_US.ISO8859-1]=Modular Disk Storage Manager
Comment[en_US.ISO8859-1]=Configures and manages Dell Storage Arrays
Exec=gksudo -k -u root /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient
Icon=/opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/client_icon.png
Terminal=false
MultipleArgs=false
Type=Application

Lo importante en ese archivo es la linea:

Exec=gksudo -k -u root /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient

Con la cuál le estamos diciendo que ejecute el SMclient usando sudo.

Cuando terminamos de editarlo, lo copiamos a la carpeta de Unity

cp -fv /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient.desktop /usr/share/applications/SMclient.desktop

Con eso debería funcionar todo!

Observaciones varias:

– Si cuando lo ejecutas te aparece la splash screen de Dell, pero nunca carga el software, es porque lo estás ejecutando sin sudo.
– Para correrlo a mano, y no usando el acceso directo, en una terminal ejecuta: sudo /opt/dell/mdstoragemanager/client/SMclient.
– En la lista de aplicaciones de Unity, debería aparecerte como ‘Modular Disk Storage Manager’.
