Configuring deep discovery for EMC CLARiiON storage enclosures using Veritas Operations Manager Storage Insight Add-on for Deep Array Discovery and Mapping 5.0

The Veritas Operations Manager Storage Insight Add-on for Deep Array Discovery and Mapping provides you detailed information on the storage enclosures in your datacenter. By bringing you the information to the level of adapters and disks, the Storage Insight Add-on lets you understand your storage enclosures in a much deeper level.

As part of its deep array discovery capabilities, the Storage Insight Add-on provides you options to understand the EMC CLARiiON enclosures in your datacenter in a better way. Storage Insight Add-on communicates to the EMC CLARiiON enclosures through the NaviSphere Secure CLI (NaviSecCLI) utility, which is the secure CLI for communicating to the NaviSphere package on the enclosure. The NaviSphere Secure CLI utility must be installed on a discovery host that is a part of the Veritas Operations Manager domain.

After you configure deep discovery, you can view the following information on the details page of an EMC CLARiiON enclosure:

  • Details of the enclosure with a graphical representation of the components

  • Array ports and storage processors

  • LUNs

  • Thin pools and thin LUNs

  • Physical disks

  • RAID groups

  • Replications

Storage Insight Add-on supports only the EMC CLARiiON CX series enclosures with a firmware version 6.26 and later.

Note:

Storage Insight Add-on supports only the NaviSphere Secure CLI, version 6.29. It does not support the NaviSphere Classic CLI (NaviCLI).
