REQUIREMENT

Discovery of EMC SAN Storage Unity

DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM:

We are unable to map devices allocated from storage with the hosts and applications running on them due to which we do not have comprehensive report from UD. Unable to discover EMC SAN Storage Centerra from UCMDB as there is no protocol available in UCMDB, which is required for this storage.These are critical devices of our datacenter and any impact/changes on these should be notified. The changes should be visible which will help us to manage our service by reporting it to higher management.

BUSINESS CASE

There is no protocol available to discover this storage and this report is required to represent any modifications performed at storage end. As storage is integral part of any datacenter, this optimization should be taken care.

UD does support the EMC namespace "root/emc".  Have you tried this and it didn't work?  UD can talk to EMC devices using CIM protocol talking to the storage via SMi-S.  Is SMI-S enabled on your storage device?
