Screen Shot 2016-09-22 at 6.37.41 AM.png

This is a full open source plugin that implements HP 3PAR storage support in UCS Director.


Most common tasks are implemented (creating/editing/deleting volumes, hosts, host sets, volume sets, CPGs, VLUNs, snapshots and copies) as well as a GUI to operate these features.

It is released under an open source MIT-style license.

Downloading & Installing

Visit the releases page for the latest version. You can download the source code and modify it if you wish under the terms of the license.

To install you will first need to enable the WSAPI on your 3PAR array. Login via ssh and issue the following command:


You can check if it's running by issuing:


This plugin currently cannot be distributed as a binary. It's easy to compile it yourself - instructions here.

Once the WSAPI is enabled and the plugin compiled, you can install the UCS Director plugin:

  1. Navigate to Administration -> Open Automation
  2. Select Add and select to upload
  3. Once it has finished uploading, select the plugin and click Enable to mark it as active
  4. ssh to your UCS Director installation as shelladmin and select 3 to stop services and y to confirm
  5. Select 4 to start services again

Note: It may take up to 15 minutes for UCS Director to restart during this time. You can view progress by selecting 18.

Once UCS Director has come back online, navigate to Administration -> Physical Accounts, select the Physical Accounts tab and click Add.

Select HP 3Par as the account type and fill out the form to add it. From here you can use it like you would any other storage account in UCS Director.

Hi there, this plugin has been temporarily taken offline to ensure it matches Cisco's compliance policy. If you're interested in it, please drop me a private message.

Hi matday, when uploading in open automation I get the error "Please upload the selected file" after it appears to upload successfully and I select the submit button.  I attempted to work around this by uploading to the /opt/infra/uploads/dirxxxxxxxx and then selecting submit but then receive the error "no module properties file found".  In reviewing the infra log I see the error message "Error while validatin g feature java.lang.Exception:  No Module properties file found".  Can you verify if this is an issue with compiling using ANT or something related to UCSD?  Thank you.

not sure what versin you are on, but at some point there was a bug where the dir was not readable and need a chmod.

It’s 5.5.0

Should the dirxxxxxxxxx directories be set to ucsdu and ucsdg instead of root/root?
