AvailabilityGuard™ runs read-only svcinfo CLI commands over a secure shell (SSH) session to collect IBM V7000 / SVC storage system configuration data.
To scan an IBM SVC / Storwize V7000 storage system, you should make the following preparations:
- Obtain the IBM storage system Name or IP address.
Obtain an IBM storage system user account with permission to run read-only svcinfo commands.
- Verify that IP connectivity through SSH (default is port 22) is available between the AvailabilityGuard™ collector server and the target IBM storage system.
