EMC Isilon (SSH)

Connector file name: MS_HW_EMCIsilon.hdf

This connector is superseded by:


This connector discovers the status of an EMC Isilon Storage Cluster


Typical platform: EMC Isilon

Operating system: Storage System


Relies on: EMC Isilon SSH interface

Technology and protocols: System Commands

This connector requires advanced privileges on the managed host for the commands below:

  • /usr/bin/isi_for_array
  • /usr/bin/isi

This connector therefore needs to run as root or you need to configure a privilege-escalation mechanism like sudo on the managed host to allow the monitoring account to run the commands listed above.

Sample of /etc/sudoers to allow the above commands to be run as root by the patrol account:

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/isi_for_array
patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/isi

Connector Activation Criteria

The EMC Isilon (SSH) connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all of the criteria below are met:

  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: if [ -f /usr/bin/isi ] ; then echo ms_hw_isi_found ; fi
    • Output contains: ms_hw_isi_found (regex)
  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: /bin/zsh -c " /usr/bin/isi_for_array /usr/bin/isi status -w"
    • Output contains: Cluster Name: (regex)
