Storage Resource Monitor provides the Add Storage Device wizard to adding storage arrays (and external providers if required) to your network.

Before you begin:

  • Refer to the knowledge base article linked from the Add arrays to SRM page for your array, and ensure you have enabled the provider/array if necessary and have the credential and other information required.

  1. From the Web Console, navigate to My Dashboards > Storage Summary, and then click Add Storage Device on the Getting Started with Storage Resource Monitor resource.

    If the Getting Started with Storage Resource Monitor resource is not displayed, you can quickly add it to the page.

  3. Click (+) Add SMI-S Provider and select the required information to add a provider.
