This article provides information on Storage Manager integration.
All STM versions
Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) can run as an integrated module in Storage Manager (STM). This feature gives you the option of running both products in parallel which is useful if you want to try SRM before purchasing. You can also monitor arrays in SRM that are not currently supported in STM. For a full list of devices supported by SRM, see the Storage Devices Supported section in the SRM Help Online document. Migrating devices from one product to the other is not necessary. SRM and STM work independently with each other in supporting separate databases. This article discusses the following:
When SRM and STM are integrated, STM serves as the licensing server for both products. If you are running SRM as a standalone, you must first deactivate the SRM license and re-apply it to STM. When integrated, STM is responsible for maintaining the total disk license count. For more information on licensing STM see the STM administrator guide.
Communications between SRM and STM
SRM and STM maintain individual license caches that keeps record of their total disk count. When changes happen such as adding or removing a disk, a notification is sent to both SRM and STM allowing them to update their license cache with the changes. The license cache information is shared every 5 minutes between SRM and STM via secure communications over HTTPS using port 8443.
Note: It is important that your firewall does not block the port used by SRM and STM for communications.
To integrate SRM and STM, log into the Orion web console for SRM and click Settings > SRM Settings > Manage Storage Manager Integration. This opens the Setup Storage Manager Integration web site. Provide the following information for integrating SRM to STM:
Once the information has been entered, click SUBMIT.
If you choose to disable integration between SRM and STM, click the Disable Integration button on the Setup Storage Manager Integration website. You will be prompted twice before integration is disabled and once SRM and STM is disabled, the following happens:
Ports that cannot be blocked by a Firewall:
