Overview

This article provides information on Storage Manager integration.

Environment

SRM 6.0+

Detail

Storage Resource Monitor (SRM) can run as an integrated module with SRM Profiler (formerly Storage Manager (STM)). This feature gives you the option of running both products in parallel, so that you can monitor arrays not supported in SRM. For a full list of devices supported by SRM and SRM Profiler, see Which arrays are supported by SRM and SRM Profiler? in the SRM Administrator Guide. Migrating devices from one product to the other is not necessary. SRM and SRM Profiler work independently with each other in supporting separate databases.

Licensing

When SRM and SRM Profiler are integrated, SRM Profiler serves as the licensing server for both products, and is responsible for maintaining the total disk license count. For more information on licensing SRM Profiler, see the SRM Profiler Administrator Guide.

Communications between SRM and SRM Profiler 

SRM and SRM Profiler 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 SRM Profiler allowing them to update their license cache with the changes. The license cache information is shared every 5 minutes between SRM and SRM Profiler via secure communications over HTTPS using port 8443.

Ensure0your firewall does not block the port used by SRM and SRM Profiler for communications. These are:

For integration, the following ports cannot be blocked by a firewall:

  • HTTPS 8443
  • HTTPS 9000
  • TTPS 17778

Integrate SRM and SRM Profiler

From the Orion Web Console:

  1. Navigate  to Settings > All Settings > SRM Settings > Manage Storage Manager Integration.
    This opens the Setup Storage Manager Integration web site.
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Server name or IP address – Name or IP address of the SRM Profiler server.
    • Port – HTTPS port used for exchanging license cache information.
    • User name – Administrator account for the SRM Profiler server.
    • Password – Password for the administrator account of the SRM Profiler server.
  3. Once the information has been entered, click Submit.

Disable integration between SRM and SRM Profiler

From the Orion Web Console:

  1. Navigate  to Settings > All Settings > SRM Settings > Manage Storage Manager Integration.
    This opens the Setup Storage Manager Integration web site.
  2. Click the Disable Integration button. You will be asked to confirm that you want to disable integration.

Once integration between SRM and SRM Profiler is disabled, the following happens:

  • SRM Profiler remains licensed and polling continues for storage devices assigned to it
  • If the 30 day evaluation period has not expired for SRM, polling continues for devices assigned to it.
  • If the 30 day evaluation period has expired for SRM, polling stops for devices assigned to it.

For more information on integration, see Use SRM with SRM Profiler in the SRM Administrator Guide.
