Improve Physical AIX FC discovery by Host Resources by Shell job

0 Votes

Brief Description

Host Resources by Shell job doesn't discover relation between Disk and LUN for physical AIX (AIX without VIOS).

Benefits / Value

Our goal is to have in UCMDB information how host relates to storage array. This information is extremely important for calculating the cost of ownership of a host (without this information, we can't calculate exactly how much a business application is worth) , also it is very useful for administrators (storage admins, datacenter admins, virtual admins, etc), and of course it is useful for various kinds of audits.

Design details

On the screenshot below you can see relation that I'm asking for, but if fact end1 should not be LogicalVolume, it should be disk device like vmware discovery works (the second one screenshot).
