This step must be performed if you plan to work with the HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage system.
Veeam Backup Free Edition uses the HPE 3PAR Web Services API server to communicate with the HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage system. When you add the HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage to the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup Free Edition attempts to enable the server automatically. If Veeam Backup Free Edition fails to enable the server automatically (for example, if it does not have enough privileges to do this), you need to enable the server manually.
The HPE 3PAR Web Services API is a part of the HPE 3PAR OS starting from version 3.1.2. Veeam Backup Free Edition does not support earlier versions of HPE 3PAR OS.
To check if the HPE 3PAR Web Services API server is enabled and enable it if needed:
- Log on to the Processor with administrator privileges:
#ssh <administrator account>@<SP IP Address>
- View the current state of the Web Services API Server:
- If the Web Services API Server is disabled, start it:
- If the HTTP or HTTPS state is disabled, enable one of them:
#setwsapi -http enable
#setwsapi -https enable
