Pinned topic IBM Systems Director 6.2 DS3300 System Discovery

‏2012-05-21T16:34:55Z |
I'm a new user to Systems Director and I'm unable to get it to discover my DS3300. I've attempted to follow the links and docs on the web site but I'm unable to resolve the problem. Does anyone have or can they point me to an updated How to? I've tried the IBM Systems Director web site procedure without success.
thx in advance.

    At a high level...

    You need to download and install the LSI (now NetApp) SMI-S provider on a OS that is not running any IBM Systems Director software, and configure it to authenticate with the DS3300. Then, create a Discovery Profile in IBM Systems Director to discover an Operating System, using the SMI-S protocol, and specify the DS as the type.

    Try out this url:
    http://support.netapp.com/NOW/apbu/oemcp/protcd/smi-s/
    You'll have to create a user to get access to the download page.
    Check out the attached file, I found some info there which turned out usefull for me the last time I had to discover a DS3500.

    Regards.

    Pablo,

    thx for the information it was helpful. When you setup the discovery profile which IP address do you point it at? The DS3300 or the server with SMI-S software installed on it?

    On the discovery profile you have to use the ip of the server where you installed the SMI-S provider.
    The ip's of the storage, you have to add them to the config of the SMI-S provider.

    Should I install the SMI-S provider software on the server that IBM director is installed on?

    Nop, you should install it on a server where there would be no agent. There might be conflict with the ports numbers user by the agent and the SMI-S provider.
    Try to follow the procedure shown in this redbook http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/abstracts/sg247694.html?Open
    (page 647)
    with a mix of the procedure shown in infocenter.
    That worked for me.

    I got it all working. I needed to turn authentication on Pegasus CIM service and that resolved the final issue.

    thx all for you assistance.

    Hello

     

     Does anyone know if this file is still available for any of the smi-s. Im really struggling to attach the storage arrays to the cimom. There just seems to be very litle documentation as to ow to storage subsystem passwords etc. I just assume that the arraymanagementutility.exe will do this. It just isnt in any of the zip files for the various versions of smi-s providers from netapp.

     

     Any help would be really appreciated. Many thanks in advance..
