When the SRM Profiler module and the SRM Orion module are integrated, the SRM Orion module generates a hidden service account username and password and passes this information to the SRM Profiler module. The SRM Profiler module also generates a hidden service account username and password passing this to the SRM Orion module. Once integration is complete, all requests to the SRM Orion module and the SRM Profiler module are authenticated based on the service account information. Information transferred between the SRM Orion module and the SRM Profiler module is encrypted and passed via HTTPS over TCP port 8443.

You can change the default port of 8443.

When the SRM Orion module and SRM Profiler are integrated

  • The SRM Profiler module is the primary owner for holding license keys and is responsible for handling any license related queries.
  • The products will try to sync every 5 minutes.

When the SRM Profiler module goes offline

  • The SRM Orion module continues connection attempts to the SRM Profiler module until connectivity is re-established
  • The SRM Orion module will not add any arrays when the SRM Profiler module is unreachable
  • If the SRM Profiler module is unreachable for more than 24 hours, the SRM Orion module will mark all arrays as unlicensed and polling will stop

When the SRM Orion module goes offline

  • The SRM Profiler module continues working
  • The SRM Profiler module will use the last retrieved license validation from the SRM Orion module for 30 days
  • After 30 days the last retrieved license validation from the SRM Orion module is discarded and the SRM Profiler module reclaims the licenses from the SRM Orion module and continues working
  • The SRM Profiler module continues connection attempts to the SRM Orion module until connectivity is reestablished. When the SRM Orion module goes offline, if desired, you can reclaim the licenses from the SRM Orion module immediately.

For more information on reclaiming the license from the SRM Orion module, see Reclaiming your License.
