SMI-S Compliant Disk Arrays

Connector file name: MS_HW_SMISDiskArray.hdf

This connector is superseded by:

Description

This connector discovers the enclosure and the disks of SAN disk arrays, as well as the storage pools and storage volumes. It will also discover and monitor the FC ports of the array and the various environment sensors when available (temperatures, fans, power supplies, etc.). It relies on the WBEM technology and supports SMI-S compliant disk arrays only.

Target

Typical platform: Any SMI-S compliant disk array

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Relies on: SMI-S Agent provided by the array vendor

Technology and protocols: WBEM

Connector Activation Criteria

The SMI-S Compliant Disk Arrays connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all of the criteria below are met:

  • The WBEM query below to the managed host succeeds:
    • Namespace: Automatic
    • WQL Query: SELECT Name,Dedicated FROM CIM_ComputerSystem
    • Result contains: [;|]3|[0-9|]*;$ (regex)
  • The WBEM query below to the managed host succeeds:
    • Namespace: Automatic
    • WQL Query: SELECT DeviceID FROM CIM_DiskDrive
