Description

This connector provides hardware monitoring for IBM DS Storage Systems through the the SMCli utility.

Target

Typical platforms: IBM DS3000, IBM DS4000, IBM DS5000

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Relies on: The SMcli utility, which is part of IBM DS Storage Manager. The version must be compatible with the system being monitored. Multiple versions of SMcli on the same system is not supported.

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • Second_Address

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 command listed above.

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

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: Second_Address

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