Introduction

The EMC Navisphere Secure CLI is used to discover and monitor CLARiiON arrays.

OpsRamp configuration

Configuration involves:

  1. Creating credentials.
  2. Configuring the integration.
  3. Adding a discovery profile.

Step 1: Create a credential

To create credentials:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Accounts > Clients.
  3. On the client’s Credentials tab, add the credential information.

The following describes some of the credential settings:

  • Type: EMC CLARiiON
  • Authentication Scope: Use Global.
  • Use Password Vault: If enabled, specify Policy Mapping, otherwise, specify a password.
    • Policy mapping enables integration of a Password Manager application with credentials.
    • Password is the authentication password to access a resource.

Step 2: Configure the integration

To integrate:

  1. From All Clients, select a client.
  2. Go to Setup > Integrations > Integrations.
  3. From Available Integrations, select Storage > EMC CLARiiON and click Install.
  4. Provide the following:
    • Name
    • IP Address
    • Credentials. Select an existing credential or create a new credential.
  5. Click Save.

Step 3: Add a discovery profile

To add a discovery profile:

  1. From the integration, click Add.
  2. Provide the following information:
    • Profile details.
      • Profile name
      • Select profile
      • SP A IP address: Use for file systems.
      • SP B IP address: Use for block systems.
    • Filter criteria
      • Smart filters: Use to filter resources based on the resource type.
      • Resource filters: Use to filter resources based on certain resource attributes.
    • Perform actions: Manage Device
    • Discovery schedule. Based on the settings, discovery is triggered based on the scheduled time. New resources added to the environment are automatically discovered.
  3. Click Save.
  4. From the Discovery Profiles section, click Scan Now for the associated profile.

What to do next

After a discovery profile is created, you can do the following:

  • View the integration: Go to Infrastructure > Storage.
  • Assign monitoring templates to the resource.
  • Validate that the resource was successfully added to OpsRamp.
