        Eyeglass Cluster Config Reports

        Eyeglass collects key cluster settings for the PowerScale clusters that it is managing, and makes them available in an HTML report format by email or on demand. Use the contents of this report to automate, and keep up to date, the documentation of cluster configuration for DR and your DR run book.  This information is also valuable for IT planning, cluster expansion, networking and security

        Cluster Networking for Failover and Cluster Reports

        Cluster networking is now added to cluster reports and can also be viewed in the zone inventory tree (see examples below).  This information is key to assisting with Access Zone failover. Each Access Zone maintains a mapping to subnet pools and configuration data.

        See the Failover Design Guide  (Eyeglass Failover Design Guide) for instructions on creating hints to allow Eyeglass to failover networking with SmartConnect Zone migration, SPN updates, and pool mapping.  This information is also needed to assist with Runbook Robot configuration within an Access Zone, and will allow customers to verify complete failover and failback operations between sites using Eyeglass automation.
