Active IQ Unified Manager 9.13

Uploading a new Active IQ rules file

Unified Manager checks for a new Active IQ events (rules) file automatically and downloads a new file when there are newer rules. However, in sites with no external network access, you need to upload the rules file manually.

Active IQ rules are also referred to as Config Advisor (CA) secure rules.

When you are installing or upgrading Unified Manager to a specific release in a site without network connectivity, the bundled Active IQ rules are automatically available for upload. However, it is recommended that you download a new rules file approximately once a month from Fujitsu’s Support Site to make sure that updated events are generated and your storage systems continue to perform optimally.

What you’ll need

  • Active IQ event reporting must be enabled. This feature is enabled by default. For information, see Enabling Active IQ portal events.

  • You must download the rules file from the DVD included in the Product.

  1. Download the current rules .zip file from the DVD included in the Product.

  2. Transfer the rules file to some media that you can bring into the secure area and then copy it onto a system in the secure area.

  3. In the left navigation pane, click Storage Management > Event Setup.

  4. In the Event Setup page, click the Upload Rules button.

  5. In the Upload Rules dialog box, navigate to and select the rules .zip file you downloaded and click Upload.

    This process can take a few minutes.

The rules file is unzipped on the Unified Manager server. After your managed clusters generate an AutoSupport file after midnight, Unified Manager checks the clusters against the rules file and generates new risk and incident events as required.
