Enabling the disk pairs for logging after reinitializing the M-100 appliance
Created On 09/26/18 13:54 PM - Last Updated 02/07/19 23:42 PM
When you restore an M-100 appliance to factory defaults, or you perform a private data reset, the appliance recognizes only one disk pair. Even if your shipping configuration included up to an additional 3 disk pairs for expanded storage, only the drives installed in bays A1 and A2 (in a RAID 1 configuration) are available after a factory reset.
To reinstate the additional storage on the M-100 appliance and use the disks for logging, you must complete the following tasks:
Add the disk pairs to the log collector and commit your changes to make the disk pairs available for logging.
Log in to the Panorama server that is managing the M-100 appliance.
On the Panorama > Managed Collectors tab, click on the default collector that is listed. By default, the collector name displays as the M-100.
On the Disks tab of the Collector dialog, click Add and select the disk pairs to enable. Disk A should already display, add the remaining disk pairs.
Commit your changes to Panorama. Click Commit and in the Commit Type drop down select Panorama.
Commit the changes to the Collector Group. Click Commit and in the Commit Type drop down select Collector Group and pick the default collector group.
Verify that the disks are enabled and available for log storage.
On the Panorama > Managed Collectors tab, verify that the Log Collector displays as Connected and that the Configuration Status displays as In sync.
On the Panorama > Collector Group tab, click on the collector group link that displays. In the General tab, verify that the Log Storage capacity displays accurately.
