IBM Storwize Disk Arrays (SSH)

Description

This connector discovers the enclosure and the disks of IBM SAN disk arrays, as well as the storage pools and storage volumes. It will also discover and monitor the FC ports, physical and logical disks of the array. It logs in directly to the v7000 cluster's management interface.

Connector ID: IBMv7000SSH

Target

Typical platform: IBM Storwize

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Leverages: IBM Storwize SSH console

Technology and protocols: SSH

This connector is not available for the local host (it is applicable to remote hosts only).

Examples

CLI

hws HOSTNAME -t storage -f IBMv7000SSH --ssh -u USER

hws-config.yaml

hosts:
- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: storage
  selectedConnectors: [ IBMv7000SSH ] # Optional, to load only this connector
  ssh:
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt

Connector Activation Criteria

The IBM Storwize Disk Arrays (SSH) connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • SSH is enabled on the monitored host
  • The monitored host sends a prompt
  • The connector sends lsenclosure -delim :[Return]
  • The monitored host sends another prompt
  • The connector sends exit[Return]
  • The captured output contains id:status:type:managed:IO_group_id:IO_group_name:product_MTM:serial_number (regex)
