The firmware is too old.  We didn't start offering performance stats on the array until TS201xxx.  The latest firmware for your array is TS230P008.

Once the firmware is up to date. 

 

Performance tool -> Discovery tab.  The peformance tool will try's default login credentials.  If it can't log into the array it will tell you there.  Click the blue circle ? and enter your credentials. 

 

Also, the performance tool needs you to be the administrator of the computer that you are using.  Make sure the array has telnet enabled.

The issue is related to your regional settings. If your server uses a different time format than MONTH/DAY/YEAR the schedule creation will fail. The performance tool will display something like this in its log - no Windows scheduler task is created.

P2000G3 :5829382S6034B200 CLI TOOL ERROR: [ Unable to schedule the task][OUTPUT:command from xml file is = "C:\Program Files\HP P2000 MSA Performance Tool\msacli.exe" -ip 192.168.10.210 -user monitor -pass hpinvent -cmdfile  "C:\Program Files\HP P2000 MSA Performance Tool\appData.Perf\get_astat.xml" -outdir "C:\hp\msa\datamodel\MSAG3.P2000G3.5829382S6034B200\CG.20120425.123522" -format xml:verbose  -gendelta -noConsole  -useTimeStamp  schcmd =  SCHTASKS /Create /TN "get_P2000G3~~5829382S6034B200~~20120425~~123522" /TR "\"C:\Program Files\HP P2000 MSA Performance Tool/hideCmdConsole.exe\" \"C:\hp\msa\datamodel\MSAG3.P2000G3.5829382S6034B200\CG.20120425.123522/get_P2000G3~~5829382S6034B200~~20120425~~123522.cmd\""  /SC MINUTE /MO 2 /ST 12:36:00 /SD 04/25/2012 error in creating a schedule collection task ]

If you try to run the command afterwards manually, the error message gets more clear.

C:\>SCHTASKS /Create /TN "get_P2000G3~~5829382S6034B200~~20120425~~123522" /TR "\"C:\Program Files\HP P2000 MSA Performance Tool/hideCmdConsole.exe\" \"C:\hp\msa\datamodel\MSAG3.P2000G3.5829382S6034B200\CG.20120425.123522/get_P2000G3~~5829382S6034B200~~20120425~~123522.cmd\""  /SC MINUTE /MO 2 /ST 12:36:00 /SD 04/25/2012
ERROR: Incorrect Start Date.

Since I'm not willing to change my regional settings just for this tool, do the following.

1. Setup P2000 discovery and schedule as usual
2. The schedule will be started, but remain in initializing state
3. Copy the command from the log using CTRL+C and start it manually on cmd prompt / adjust the start date to match your system
4. Check Windows scheduler to see if the job is created

Data is now captured until the job is stopped. This can be done using the Performance tool. Graphing is working as expected.

Regards,
Sebastian
