Zoning option is supported via a Windows Agent only.

Click Test to test SNMP communication between the SRM Profiler proxy agent and the Fibre Channel Switch device. You must select a SRM Profiler proxy agent; enter a SNMP community string and device IP address, before you click Test.

  1. On the new device page enter the appropriate values.

    McData i10K series switches do not require the McData checkbox to be enabled. 

    • Select Agent: Select the SRM Profiler proxy agent you want to monitor the Fibre Channel
    • Switch IP Address: Type the IP address of the switch
    • Device Display Name: Type a descriptive name for the Fibre Channel (ex: FC NY1)
    • Active: Do not clear this check box, doing so stops information collection from the Fibre Channel
    • McDATA Switch: Check this if the device uses the FIBRE-CHANNEL-MGMT MIB rather than the standard Fibre Alliance MIB (for example, McDATA switches use this MIB)
    • Device Groups: Optional - if you have configured groups, you can add this Fibre Channel Switch to them by clicking the group name
    • Zoning: Check this box and provide credentials, which will generate the Zoning reports.
  2. Click Next.
  3. Provide the appropriate information about the Fibre Channel switch you want to monitor. If you are unsure about a value, do not change the value from the default.
    1. Status: Select On
    2. SNMP Community String: An SNMP v1 read-only community string
  4. Click Save to save the configuration and push it out to the SRM Profiler proxy agent to begin monitoring the Fibre Channel.
