Storage Connection node

A Storage Connection node represents a connection between a storage client (a host using the storage) and a storage volume. The same connection may be linked to multiple volumes representing the client's visibility of multiple storage volumes.

Creation/update

A Storage Connection node is created or updated when a storage entity is discovered by one of the following:

  • WBEM queries to storage management software triggered by the creation or update of an SI representing storage management software
  • Directly discovered storage using WBEM queries to the WBEM/SMI-S provider triggered by the creation or update of a Storage Device node representing the chassis
  • Directly discovered storage using SNMP triggered by the creation or update of a Storage Device node representing the chassis

Removal

A StorageConnection node is removed when its parent Storage System node is removed. This is Containment Removal.
