OnCommand Insight discovers Symmetrix storage arrays by using Solutions Enabler symcli commands in conjunction with an existing Solutions Enabler server in your environment. The existing Solutions Enabler server has connectivity to the Symmetrix storage array through access to gatekeeper volumes. Administrator permissions are required to access this device.
Before configuring this data source, you should ensure that the OnCommand Insight server has TCP connectivity to port 2707 on the existing Solutions Enabler server. OnCommand Insight discovers all the Symmetrix arrays that are "Local" to this server, as seen in "symcfg list" output from that server.
The EMC Solutions Enabler Symmetrix CLI data source includes support for device configuration for thin provisioning and Symmetrix Remote Data Facility (SRDF).Definitions are supplied for Fibre Channel and Switch Performance packages.
|Service Name||Name of the Solution Enabler server as described in the local netcnfg file (Solutions Enabler install).|
|Full path to CLI||Full path to the SYMCLI commands. The default is C:\Program Files\EMC\SYMCLI\bin.|
|Inventory Poll Interval (min)||Interval, in minutes, at which the data source should poll the device. The default is 40 minutes.|
|Inventory Exclude Devices||Comma-separated list of devices, identified by serial number, that are not discovered by this data source. For this data source, an example would be Sym-000187461207.|
|Connection Caching||Type of remote connection to the Solutions Enabler. Could be LOCAL, REMOTE_CACHED, or REMOTE:
Note: This setting does not change OnCommand Insight behavior with respect to the arrays listed as REMOTE by the "symcfg list" output. OnCommand Insight gathers data only on devices shown as LOCAL by this command.
|CLI Timeout (sec)||The default is 7200.|
|SMI-S Host IP||For Array Performance, host name or IP address of the EMC SMI-S provider host.|
|SMI-S Port||For Array Performance, the SMI-S port. The default is 5988.|
|Protocol||For Array Performance, HTTP (if unsecured access) or HTTPS (if secured access).|
|SMI-S Namespace||For Array Performance, SMI-S namespace used to query the data.|
|SMI-S User Name||For Array Performance, name used for authentication by the SMI-S host for performance data.|
|SMI-S Password||For Array Performance, password used for authentication by the SMI-S host for performance data.|
|Performance Polling Interval (sec)||For Array Performance, the recommended setting and default for the poll interval is 1000 seconds.|
|Performance Filter Type||For Array Performance, set to exclude or include for acquisition by selecting the filter type as "exclude" or "include." The default is exclude.|
|Performance Filter Device List||For Array Performance, the comma-separated list of Solutions Enabler IP addresses to be included or excluded, depending upon the filter type selected. For this data source, an example would be Sym-000187461207.|
|RPO Polling Interval (sec)||For Replication, the interval, in seconds, at which the data source should poll the device. The default is 300.|
