This is a tree of all storage objects in your environment, enabling you to drill down to, and access the Details page of any object.

By default, arrays are grouped by vendor, but this can be customized as needed.

Hover over an object name to display a pop-up snapshot. Click on the object name to go to the object Details page.

Click Edit to:

  • Change the title and subtitle.
  • Group objects.

    You can use the vendor, model, or storage array custom properties to group storage arrays.

    For example, to group by geographical location, create a Storage Array custom property called Location, and select this in these settings. The grouping methods you select are displayed under the resource title.

    For information on creating and editing custom properties, see Use Custom Properties with SRM.

  • List objects in order of name or status.
  • Retain the expanded state when you leave this view.
  • Always expand or always close root level grouping.
  • Specify the number of objects initially displayed in the tree
  • Experienced users can filter the objects displayed using an SWQL query.

    Example SWQL queries are:

    StorageArray.Name = 'NFCXTREMIO'

    Lun.UserCaption like '%ESX%'

    Pool.Status > 0

    StorageArray.CustomProperties.PropertyName = 'property value'

    If  no objects are displayed when the filter is applied, the following message is shown:
    Applied filter returned no data. Click Edit and check settings.
