There are two methods to define the base configuration: the manual procedure and the startup command to invoke the DataPower Installation Wizard. Both methods use the command line interface (CLI).
We recommend that you use the startup procedure, because it provides the most user assistance. We describe this approach first. If necessary, the manual procedure is provided in case there is a need to make changes or if you prefer this approach.
To avoid unpredictable behavior and delays:
Configuring the network interface
Prior to beginning the startup procedure, obtain all the necessary network information, including static IPaddresses, subnet masks, default gateway address, and Domain Name System (DNS) address.
In this example, we make the following assumptions:
While using the wizard, the default reply contained in the brackets is indicated by the Enter key. This shows both default responses and keyed-in responses.
Startup steps 1 and 2Step 1 - Do you want to configure network interfaces? [y]:y
Configuring management access
It is crucial to set up access for administering and configuring the DataPower appliance after it is initialized in the network. The CLI operates over SSH on port 22 by default, and the WebGUI operates over HTTPS on port 9090 by default.
Startup step 3Step 3 - Do you want to configure management access? [y]:y
Configuring the hard drive
The hard disk array configuration requires patience, because it takes time to build the array and the volume and to synchronize the mirrored hard drive. The synchronization process can take about an hour. Completion of the startup wizard does not depend on the completion of the synchronization of the hard drives.
Example below shows the dialog for configuring the hard drive.
Example Startup step 4Step 4 - Do you want to configure the hard disk array? [y]:y
Reviewing and saving the base configuration
In this final step of the startup wizard, the base configuration is displayed, checked, and saved.Changes to the hard disk in Step 4 are saved immediately, and you do not have an option to back out the changes. If changes need to be made, there is no provision to delete an existing setting. However, there is an option to overwrite an existing setting in a subsequent pass through the startup wizard. We recommend that you make changes to the configuration after this initial pass by using the manual procedure. Example below provides a typical configuration of the IP addresses.
Startup step 5Step 5 - Do you want to review the current configuration? [y]:y
Prior to beginning the manual procedure, make sure to obtain all the necessary network information,including static IP addresses, subnet masks, the default gateway address, and the DNS address.
Thedefault reply contained in the brackets is indicated by the Enter key.In this example, we make thefollowing assumptions:
Configuring the network interface and management access
To define the base configuration,use the following procedure from a CLI session (which is run over the serial port during this phase of the device initialization):
Configuring the hard drive
The hard disk array configuration requires patience, because time is required to build the array and the volume and to synchronize the mirrored hard drive.The synchronization process can take about anhour. Completion of this step continues after you complete and exit the CLI, because synchronization of the hard drives can take about an hour:
Verifying the configuration
Continuing the examples one step further, because the IP address for the Ethernet interface is 10.10.13.35 and the specialized HTTP server to support WebGUI access listens on port 9090, we access the WebGUI from any browser, using the following procedure:
You can use the WebGUI or the CLI to verify the successful configuration of persistent storage (the harddrives) and to perform additional interface, network, and service configurations.
Checking and managing storage
The appliance uses persistent storage to store metadata about transactions.Access to the configuration of the B2B persistence object is limited to administrators in the default domain. To properly plan for archiving and the persistence store size, you need to estimate the traffic characteristics for your appliance.
By default, electronic data interchange (EDI) documents transferred through B2B Gateway objects are stored on the appliance hard disk and can eventually be transferred to a permanent archive.Each B2B Gateway object shares document store space. Additionally, metadata that is extracted from each transaction isretained in a separate B2B persistence store on the “onboard” hard disk.
Specifying document storage
Checking synchronization progress
Time is required to synchronize the mirrored hard drives.It is important to wait on further configuration andtesting until after the synchronization process completes.
The synchronization progress.From the left navigation menu, select Status → RAID
Resync in progress
Managing store size
To check and optionally change persistent storage on the appliance, use the following procedure:
Checking B2B Persistence Storage Size
You can use the CLI to check the document store size by using the show b2bp encrypted-space command.You can also use the CLI to check the persistent store size by using the service show b2bp size command.
The service show b2bp size commandxb60# service show b2bp encrypted-space
Important: When you change the B2B Persistence Store value, you are allocating the maximum size that the embedded database can grow on the hard drive. After you change the value of the B2B Persistence Store to a higher number, it cannot be changed to a lower number.
Managing encryption settings
During the installation of a B2B XB60 appliance, the document storage partition on the hard disk drive is encrypted with the internal system key.After installation,an administrator in the default domain can change the encryption settings either to be encrypted with a passphrase or to be unencrypted.
