Preparation for Scanning Dell EMC VNX
StorageGuard collects configuration data from EMC VNX storage systems by running read-only NaviSECCLI commands on a storage management host installed with Navisphere CLI.
The following table lists the requirements for scanning EMC VNX / CLARiiON systems:
|Provide the network name or IP address of NaviCLI proxy hosts.
|Provide a user account (and password) for each NaviCLI proxy host.
|Provide the network name or IP address for SP A of each VNX / CLARiiON storage system.
|Provide an array user account (and password) for each VNX / CLARiiON storage system
|The user account should be assigned with an unlimited read-only role. Examples of read-only commands used:
|Verify IP connectivity through SSH (default is port 22) is available between the StorageGuard server and each NaviCLI proxy.
|Verify IP connectivity is available between the NaviCLI proxy and each VNX array that it scans.
