EMC storage systems are discovered via the EMC Solutions Enabler management software. As part of routine discovery, when the EMC Solutions Enabler management software is encountered, an EMC CIM Object Manager software instance is created. The management software is interrogated to discover any storage entities that it is managing. Once discovered, the storage entities are modeled in BMC Atrium Discovery.
Storage System with Management Servers:
ECOM credentials: Log into https://<SolutionsEnablerIP>:5989/ecomconfig to test connectivity and create new credentials using the ‘monitor’ role. These credentials should be entered as WBEM credentials for the Solution Enabler’s IP address.
Network access on a WBEM port (5988 for http, 5989 for https) from the BMC Discovery server to the EMC Solutions Enabler Server.
It is assumed that the EMC Solutions Enabler and EMC SMI-S Provider are installed and configured.If this is not the case, for installation and configuration are provided below.
Symmetrix systems can also be discovered by their embedded providers:
By default, the remote monitoring of Symmetrix storage systems is disabled. To enable the discovery of Symmetrix storage systems, set the 'disable remote symmetrix' option to false.
The minimum user role required is 'monitor'.
No known vendor specific information.
No known limitations.
