Modify the DATA 0 network interface settings on your StorSimple 8000 series device

Overview

Your Microsoft Azure StorSimple device has six network interfaces, from DATA 0 to DATA 5. The DATA 0 interface is always configured through the Windows PowerShell interface or the serial console, and is automatically cloud-enabled. Note that you cannot configure DATA 0 network interface through the Azure portal.

The DATA 0 interface is first configured through the setup wizard during initial deployment of the StorSimple device. When the device is in an operational mode, you may need to reconfigure DATA 0 settings. This tutorial provides two methods to modify DATA 0 network settings, both through Windows PowerShell for StorSimple.

After reading this tutorial, you will be able to:

  • Modify DATA 0 network setting through the setup wizard
  • Modify DATA 0 network settings through the Set-HcsNetInterface cmdlet

Modify DATA 0 network settings through setup wizard

You can reconfigure DATA 0 network settings by connecting to the Windows PowerShell interface of your StorSimple device and launching a setup wizard session. Perform the following steps to modify DATA 0 settings:

To modify DATA 0 network settings through setup wizard

  1. In the serial console menu, choose option 1, Log in with full access. When prompted provide the device administrator password. The default password is Password1.
  2. At the command prompt, type:

    Invoke-HcsSetupWizard

  3. A setup wizard appears to help configure the DATA 0 interface of your device. Provide new values for the IP address, gateway, and netmask.

Note

The fixed controllers IPs will need to be reconfigured through the Network settings blade of the StorSimple device in the Azure portal. For more information, go to Modify network interfaces.

Modify DATA 0 network settings through Set-HcsNetInterface cmdlet

An alternate way to reconfigure DATA 0 network interface is through the use of the Set-HcsNetInterface cmdlet. The cmdlet is executed from the Windows PowerShell interface of your StorSimple device. When using this procedure, the controller fixed IPs can also be configured here. Perform the following steps to modify the DATA 0 settings:

To modify DATA 0 network settings through the Set-HcsNetInterface cmdlet

  1. In the serial console menu, choose option 1, Log in with full access. When prompted provide the device administrator password. The default password is Password1.
  2. At the command prompt, type:

    Set-HCSNetInterface -InterfaceAlias Data0 -IPv4Address <> -IPv4Netmask <> -IPv4Gateway <> -Controller0IPv4Address <> -Controller1IPv4Address <> -IsiScsiEnabled 1 -IsCloudEnabled 1

    In the angled brackets, type the following values for DATA 0:
