Enhancement for uCDMB to support namespace /root/emc/smis

Status : Duplicate
over 2 years ago

Using the SMI-S Provider Configuration we are unable to connect to:
• Dell EMC Unity 400F and 500F
• All devices run firmware version: 4.2.1.9535982

We are receiving and error while using the SMI-S provider.

Using the ecom explorer I see that the root/emc is empty but root/emc/smis has the populated data


I have tried to edit the below scripts to reflect this but we are still receiving an error
Smis_emc.py
Smis_topology.py
cimCatagories.xml

Below is the error:
<< Progress message, Severity: Error>>
CIM: Internal error. Details:

  • We've been working with another customer with the same requirement and have already completed the process of capturing the data dump from his EMC Unity storage device, under the namespace /root/emc/smis.  We expect to have the updated SMI-S discovery for this namespace/device included in the next content pack toward the end of 2019.

  • Hi,

     

    We’re also trying to discover below storage devices with the job: Storage Devices Connection by CIM.

     

    EMC VNX 5600 Unified Storage

    EMC UNITY 400F ALL FLASH STORAGE

     

    And we have the below error:

    Waiting for this ER solution.

  • Waiting for this discovery too.

  • Almost a year has passed since creation of this idea, but EMC Unity storages still not supported. At the same time BMC ADDM supports Unity and many others - https://docs.bmc.com/docs/display/Configipedia/EMC+Unity+Storage+Systems Dell provides free virtual unity storage named UnityVSA, RnD could use it to implement discovery https://www.dellemc.com/en-us/products-solutions/trial-software-download/unity-vsa.htm
  • The idea has received an initial review to ensure adherence to our idea submission and community guidelines. More information may be needed at this stage and we expect the community to help prioritize the idea with comments and voting
