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.
  2. 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 on the Storage Home Dashboard,  you can quickly add it as described in SRM Resources.

    The Add Storage Array wizard is opened.

  3. Select the array type from the Choose Array Type drop-down list, and click Next.

    If you are running multiple pollers you are prompted to choose the poller to use to monitor the array. Click Next.

Arrays monitored using a provider

For arrays that use a provider, the Choose Data Source pane is displayed as below.

  1. If a suitable provider already exists for this array type, you can select it from the list shown, click Next, and continue from Step 6.

  2. If there is no existing provider, or you want to add a different provider, click the Add Provider button.
  3. Enter the connection information for the provider. The information requested depends on the array.
    Select an existing credential, or create a new credential by selecting <New Credential>, and entering the username and password.

    You can create and edit credentials on the Edit storage object properties page.

  4. (Optional) Click Advanced. The default protocol, port, and namespace information used to communicate with arrays of this type are displayed. If necessary, enter the values for this specific array.

  5. Click Test Connection to ensure the information entered is valid, and click Save.
  6. The arrays on the network of this type are displayed, including any already being monitored. If more than one array is found you can select those you want to monitor.

  7. Click Next.
  8. The Summary tab is displayed. Click Finish. The array or arrays are polled by SRM and the data displayed in the appropriate resources.

Arrays monitored without a provider

For arrays that do not use a provider, the Choose Data Source pane is displayed as below:

  1. Enter the connection information for the provider. The information requested will depend upon the array. 
  2. Select an existing credential or create a new credential by selecting <New Credential> and entering the required username and password.

    You can create and edit credentials at any time using the Edit storage object properties page.

  3. Click Test Connection to ensure the information entered is valid, then click Next. srm-choose-data-targets-2.png

  5. Click Next.
