Pure Storage FlashArray storage systems are discovered via their own Pure Storage Embedded SMI-S Provider. The SMI-S Provider is embedded with the Purity operating system. Pure Storage FlashArray storage systems are discovered by scanning the purity host on which the SMI-S provider is running. Once discovered, the storage entities are modeled in BMC Discovery.
- SMI-S provider enabled.The SMI-S provider can be enabled through the Purity GUI (System > Configuration > SMI-S > Enable) and Purity CLI (puresmis command).
- Credentials to log into the Pure Storage storage system. They should be entered as WBEM credentials in BMC Discovery for the storage system IP address. It can be a directory service account (such as Microsoft Active Directory account or OpenLDAP account) with Readonly permission.
- Network access on a WBEM port (5988 for http or 5989 for https) from the BMC Discovery server to the storage array.
