After you configure deep discovery for the enclosures, the discovery happens once every six hours, and Veritas Operations Manager database is updated accordingly.
To perform deep array discovery of enclosures, you require the access to storage views and operations.
Apart from providing deeper insight on your enclosures, the Storage Insight Add-on also lets you define the tiers for the LUNs in the datacenter. The tiering of LUNs supports the Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM), which manages the data by putting them into different types of storage media according to various parameters. Also, the Storage Insight Add-on lets you perform the maintenance of the Dynamic Multipathing (DMP) paths in the level of array ports and adapters.
Storage Insight Add-on also supports network-attached storage (NAS) discovery from the NAS enabled-enclosures in your datacenter. NAS discovery is a Veritas Operations Manager Advanced feature. You can temporarily use the feature under a demo license of Veritas Operations Manager Advanced. To obtain a permanent license, you need to accept the End User's License Agreement (EULA) for Veritas Operations Manager Advanced.
