16.4. Logging In to Virtuozzo Storage Management Panel

Note

This feature is only supported for Virtuozzo 7 servers.

From Virtuozzo Automator, you can log in to the Virtuozzo Storage management panel to manage and monitor your Virtuozzo Storage clusters. To do this, Click the Storage link in the left menu to open the management panel login screen in a separate browser tab and enter your Virtuozzo Storage credentials.

By default (i.e. if you installed both the VA MN and Virtuozzo Storage management panel on the same node) the Storage link points to the IP address or hostname of the Virtuozzo Storage management panel specified during Virtuozzo installation. The default port is 8888.

If you happen to have the management panels on different nodes, you can add the link to the Virtuozzo Storage management panel to VA MN manually by installing the Virtuozzo Storage integration plugin:

  1. On the VA Management Node, run

    # yum install va-cc-storage
    
  2. On each hardware node in the VA infrastructure, run

    # yum install va-agent-storage
    
  3. Specify the IP address of the Virtuozzo Storage management node in the pvacc.conf configuration file located on the VA Management Node. For example, if the container with the Virtuozzo Storage management panel has the IP address 10.30.10.101, do the following:

    1. On the VA Management Node, open the /etc/opt/pva/cc/pvacc.conf file, locate the <storage> element and change the local IP address to 10.30.10.101:

      <storage>
          <web-panel>
              <address>10.30.10.101</address>
              <port>8888</port>
          </web-panel>
      </storage>
      
    2. Restart the va-cc service to apply changes:

      # systemctl restart va-cc
      

    You can configure the port value in the same way if needed.
