Enabling HPE 3PAR Web Services API Server

This step must be performed if you plan to work with the HPE Primera or HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage system.

Veeam Backup & Replication uses the HPE 3PAR Web Services API server to communicate with the HPE Primera or HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage system. When you add the HPE Primera or HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage to the backup infrastructure, Veeam Backup & Replication attempts to enable the server automatically. If Veeam Backup & Replication fails to enable the server automatically, for example, Veeam Backup & Replication does not have enough privileges to do this, you need to enable the server manually.

Enabling HPE 3PAR Web Services API ServerImportant!

The HPE 3PAR Web Services API is a part of the HPE 3PAR OS starting from version 3.1.2. Veeam Backup & Replication does not support earlier versions of the HPE 3PAR OS.

To check if the HPE 3PAR Web Services API server is enabled and enable it if needed:

  1. Log on to the Processor with administrator privileges:

#ssh <administrator account>@<SP IP Address>

  1. View the current state of the Web Services API Server:

#showwsapi


-- -State- -HTTP_State-
HTTP_Port -HTTPS_State- HTTPS_Port -Version-
Enabled   Active Enabled       8008
Enabled       8080         1.1

  1. If the Web Services API Server is disabled, start it:

#startwsapi

  1. If the HTTP(s) state is disabled, enable it:

#setwsapi -http enable

or

#setwsapi -https enable
