The article contains information on enabling the Dell Compellent SMI-S Provider, so that Dell Compellent arrays can be monitored by SRM.
Compellent arrays communicate with SRM using the SMI-S provider included with the Dell Enterprise Manager, which runs on an external server. SMI-S is configured either during initial Data Collector installation or after installation by modifying the Data Collector Manager properties. When SMI-S is enabled and configured, the Data Collector automatically installs and manages the Provider.
For more information, please consult the documentation supplied with your array, or visit the Dell Compellent support site at https://customer.compellent.com/.
Ensure you have the following information before adding the provider to SRM.
