Hitachi Configuration Manager

Hitachi Configuration Manager can be used as a replacement of Hitachi CCI, its configuration is much easier than CCI.
Either use direct storage REST API instead of CCI, which is not however available on older systems like the VSP G1000 or VSP G200/400 which have no REST API support.
Therefore its implemented Hitachi Configuration Manager support to enable REST API access even for these storage devices.

Configuration is easy, create an account on Hitachi Configuration Manager and put its hostname and user credentials into STOR2RRD configuration.
You have to define also device id of the storage.

Hitachi Configuration Manager is apparently free for Hitachi customers.


  • Open port to the HCP are 23450 (HTTP) or 23451 (HTTPS) from STOR2RRD server
  • It uses same user account which is used for Export Tool already created on the back-end storage

Storage Device ID

For the storage device ID, specify a 12-digit value consisting of the fixed value designated for the model of the storage system and the storage system's 6-digit serial number. If the serial number is less than six digits, pad it with leading zeros. The fixed value designated for the storage system model is as follows.
Storage systemFixed value
VSP 5100, 5100H, 5500, 5500H900000 (1)
VSP E990936000
VSP E590, E790934000
VSP F370, F700, F900, G370, G700, G900   886000
VSP F350, G350882000
VSP G130 (2)880000

#1: These storage systems have serial numbers that are less than 6 digits. Pad the storage device ID with zeros, added after this designated value and before the serial number, to bring the total number of digits for the storage device ID up to 12.
#2: This model is available only in select markets. Contact your local sales representative for availability.
