Request for discover Fibre Channel topology for virtual AIX

0 Votes

Brief Description

Current jobs doesn't support FC topology discovery for virtual AIX. This is request to add such feature.

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

I'm not sure how exactly topology should be and which job should discover this information either Host Resources by Shell or IBM LPAR And VIO Server Topology by Shell.
