HP MSA2000 user interfaces

You can configure an MSA2000 system through the Storage Management Utility (SMU), which is a web server on each controller, or with the command-line interface (CLI).

To access the MSA2000 system initially you can go through either a serial interface or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). You can also configure user access and privileges.

The SMU is a web-based GUI that runs on each controller that is accessible through the IP address of each controller. All management and monitoring tasks can be completed on each controller.

MSA2000 command-line interface (CLI)

The CLI is accessible through Secure Shell (SSH), Telnet, and serial port. The CLI includes all functionality that is available in the GUI.
