AvailabilityGuard™ uses read-only HP Virtual Connect CLI commands to collect configuration data regarding HP Virtual Connect infrastructure. AvailabilityGuard opens an SSH session to the HP Virtual Connect switch and executes read-only HP Virtual Connect show commands.
To scan HP Virtual Connect (HPVC), you should make the following preparations:
- Obtain the HPVC domain name or IP address.
- Obtain an HPVC user account with a user privilege level.
- Verify that IP connectivity through SSH (default is port 22) is available between the AvailabilityGuard™ collector server and each HPVC domain.
