Test the web username/password for EMC SMI-S providers

Table of contents

Updated June 16, 2017


This article describes how to test the web user name and password for EMC SMI-S providers by checking if they satisfy the following:

  • Installed as a third-party software on a remote machine
  • Installed on a more robust EMC storage array
  • Embedded in the storage array itself

This can be helpful in checking the validity of the user name and password when testing functionality to the SMI-S provider.


All STM versions


Note: For some EMC arrays, the default user name and password is Admin/#1Password. Other arrays may have different default values.


To test the username and password outside of SolarWinds you can use any of the following:

  • https://<ip address of provider or array>:5989/ecomconfig
  • SRM's built-in CIM Browser tool, which includes a graphical representation


The default path for the Solarwinds CIM Browser tool can be found in the default installation path for SRM: 

C:\Program Files (x86)\SolarWinds\Orion\SRM\SolarWinds.CIMBrowser.exe


Default connection for EMC arrays should automatically reserve HTTPS and port 5989, in which you can assign to /ecomconfig to get to the default web-based browser to log in for the SMI-S provider (whether it is embedded or not).


If the EMC software is installed on a third-party box, then substitute the IP address of the box where you installed the EMC SMI-S provider.


If the array is more robust and has an SMI-S provider built into the array itself, then substitute the IP address of the array itself.
