This article provides brief information and steps to resolve the issue when List Resources on Storage Array in NPM do not return array information.



All NPM versions


Any of the following can cause the issue:

  • NPM typically monitors via ICMP, SNMP and WMI.
  • It is not able to provide Array specific information.
  • NPM List Resources is discovering OIDs that are already coded into the application.
  • Storage Arrays are typically monitored via SMIS to get array specific information.



Another module is required for information on array on NPM - SRM.

The following are different workarounds:

  • Using Universal Device Poller, you will be able to poll some information that is exposed and available via the SNMP Agent on the Storage Array.
  • To know which OIDs will hold the information that you are looking for, you will have to check with the hardware vendor, as SolarWinds do not manage the OIDs on the device.
  • Adding MIB file of the Storage Array will not help in getting NPM to recognize the arrays.
