Step 1. Enable HPE 3PAR Web Services API Server

In this article

    Veeam Backup & Replication uses the HPE 3PAR Web Services API (WSAPI) server to communicate with HPE Primera and HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage systems. When you add an 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.

    To check if the WSAPI server is enabled and enable it if needed:

    1. Log on to the Processor with administrator privileges:

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

    1. Run the following command to view the current state of the WSAPI server:

    #showwsapi


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

    1. If the WSAPI server is not running, run the following command to start it:

    #startwsapi

    1. If the HTTP port is disabled, run the following command to enable it:

    #setwsapi -http enable

    If the HTTPS port is disabled, run the following command to enable it:

    #setwsapi -https enable
