How to Monitor IBM Storwize v7000 Storage System Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise  monitors the IBM Storwize v7000 storage system in an agentless manner. All that is required for this is a single eG agent  on any remote Windows host in the environment. To start IBM Storwize v7000 monitoring, first manage the IBM Storwize v7000 component using eG administrative interface. The procedure to achieve this is explained in the following section.

Managing the IBM Storwize v7000 storage system

The eG Enterprise cannot automatically discover the IBM Storwize v7000 storage system. This implies that you need to manually add the component for monitoring.
