SMI-S Compliant Storage Libraries

Connector file name: MS_HW_SMISLibrary.hdf

This connector is superseded by:

Description

This connector discovers the enclosure of a storage library as well as its specialized devices: tape drives, cartridges, media changers, etc. 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 tape libraries only.

Target

Typical platform: Any SMI-S compliant storage library

Operating system: Storage System

Prerequisites

Leverages: SMI-S Agent provided by the library vendor

Technology and protocols: WBEM

Connector Activation Criteria

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

  • The WBEM query below to the managed host succeeds:
    • Namespace: Automatic
    • WQL Query: SELECT Name,Dedicated FROM CIM_ComputerSystem
    • Result contains: [;|]\(22\|35\)|[0-9|]*;$ (regex)
  • The WBEM query below to the managed host succeeds:
    • Namespace: Automatic
    • WQL Query: SELECT DeviceID FROM CIM_TapeDrive
