Managing the EMC VNXe Storage system

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the EMC VNXe storage system. Therefore, you need to manually add the component for monitoring. Remember that the eG Enterprise automatically manages the components that are added manually. To manage an EMC VNXe storage system, do the following:

  1. Log into the eG administrative interface.
  2. Follow the Components -> Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile of the Admin menu.
  3. In the COMPONENT page that appears next, select EMC VNxe Series as the Component type. Then, click the Add New Component button. This will invoke .

  4. Specify the Host IP/Name and the Nick name of the EMC VNXe storage system. This EMC VNXe storage system can only be monitored in an agentless manner. Therefore, the Agentless check box will be checked by default. Next, select Other as the OS and Other as the Mode. Then, click the Add button to register the changes (see Figure 1).

  5. The EMC VNXe storage system so added will be managed automatically by eG Enterprise. Now, try to sign out of the user interface. Doing so, will bring up the following page as shown in Figure 2, which prompts you to configure a list of unconfigured tests for the new EMC VNXe storage system.

  6. Click on any test in the list of unconfigured tests. For instance, click on the VNXe Battery test to configure it. Figure 3 then appears.

  7. To know how to configure the test, refer to Monitoring the EMC VNXe Storage system .
  8. Finally, signout of the eG administrative interface.
