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

You can use Storage Insight Add-on to perform the deep discovery of EMC VPLEX enclosures. After the Storage Insight Add-on performs the deep array discovery, you can view the following additional information on the overview page of the EMC VPLEX enclosure:

  • Virtual Volumes

  • Storage Volumes

  • RAID Groups

A VPLEX enclosure is represented as a virtual container object that contains one or more VPLEX nodes. The container object's waterfall page provides the information about the objects seen by all nodes. The individual tabs display the details of the distributed objects. The nodes show the details of the objects that can be seen only from the nodes.

Note:

To configure VPLEX enclosure, you must have the administrator privileges.
