IBM Storwize 3700 Recover Lost IP Address

KB ID 0001388


While repurposing an IBM Storwize V3700 SAN, it became apparent that I didn’t know the IP addresses and they had been ‘misplaced’ by the client. 


Arm yourself with a FAT32 formatted USB drive, and create a file on it called satask.txt.

SATASK.txt file Srorwize

Pop your USB into the controller, and the fault light will flash for a few seconds.

Now on your USB drive theres should be a file called satask_result.html which you can open and locate the IP addresses
