McData Fibre Switch

Description

This connector discovers the enclosure and fiber-channel ports of McData SAN switches as well as the various environment sensors (temperatures, fans, power supplies, etc.). It relies on the SNMP protocol.

Connector ID: McData

This connector supersedes:

Target

Typical platform: McData SAN

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Leverages: McData SNMP Agent (EF-6000-MIB)

Technology and protocols: SNMP

Examples

CLI

hws HOSTNAME -t storage -f McData --snmp v2c --community public

hws-config.yaml

hosts:
- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: storage
  selectedConnectors: [ McData ] # Optional, to load only this connector
  snmp:
    version: v1 # Read documentation for v2 and v3
    community: public # or probably something more secure

Connector Activation Criteria

The McData Fibre Switch connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • An SNMP Get-Next on the OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.289.2.1.1.2.2.1.1 must return a value in the same subtree
