SMI-S FAQ

Updated: June 16, 2017

Q: What is SNIA?

A: SNIA is the Storage Networking Industry Association in-charge of SMI-S.

Q: What are the Default Ports used by the providers?

A: The default ports are 5988 for http traffic and 5989 for https traffic.

    Before installing the Provider, run netstat to make sure the default ports are not being used. If another Cimom or IBM Director is running on the machine, changing the port the Provider listens on will be required for the Provider to run.

Q: How do I test the connection to the SMI-S provider for my storage array?

A: You can use Telnet to test the network connectivity to the SMI-S Provider. For example, on a Windows system:

  1. Log onto the SRM Profiler agent or server where you are collecting the data for your storage array.
  2. Open a command prompt and type the command: telnet <SMI-S provider IP address> <port>
    Example: telnet 192.168.1.2 5988
  3. If the connection is working, you will see a blank screen. If you get an error message, try the following troubleshooting tips.

    Troubleshooting tips:

    1. Check the SMIS-provider IP address and port number.
    2. Check if a firewall is blocking the connection to the IP address or the port number.
    3. Check if the SMI-S service is started.

Q: What is the default namespace for my array?

A: The following table provides array default name spaces:

    Vendor

    Namespace

    LSI

    root/lsissi11

    3PAR

    root/tpd

    EMC
