Preparation for Scanning Dell EMC XtremIO
StorageGuard collects configuration data from EMC XtremIO storage systems by running read-only REST API calls through HTTP/HTTPS on the XtremIO Management servers (XMS).
The following table lists the requirements for scanning EMC XtremIO storage systems:
|1||Provide the name or IP address of each XMS.
|2||Provide a user account (and password) for each XMS.
|3||The user should be assigned with unlimited read-only rights, enabling it to query all XMS configuration objects through Rest API V2/3.|
|4||Verify IP connectivity through HTTP/HTTPS (443) is available between the StorageGuard server and each XMS.|
