Re: Configuring TPC with HP EVA

Hi!

I don't know anything about TPC.

But for a starter is it supported?

Does TPC ask for any settings done on the EVA?
What is it you want to do?
Like to create vdisks/LUNs?
With that I suppose you'll find some help here. Getting a specific list of things to do with an EVA under IBM TPC you would hopefully get more information from IBM..

HP EVA uses a web based tool called Command View to configure the array.

Sounds like this one is meant:

As this is an IBM product, you will have to check the IBM documentation how they interface to the EVA (management system). Most likely by SMI-S (good luck).

Hi Johan,

Thanks for your reply.

We have TPC installed and to connect the EVA management server to it, SMI-S EVA is installed and added user using Cimuser. Added as a client in the TPC CIMOM. After running discovery still the storage is not displayed in managed storage list.
I felt missed some other steps, let me know if you can help me on this...

Please verify if commandview is unable to see & manage EVA. If this works fine, you should take further help from IBM folks.

Re: Configuring TPC with HP EVA

HP SIM has a tool wbemdisco - does this come with your SMI-S install? If you do you can use this to further test if you can communicate with the EVA.

SMI-S is installed from Command View CD, but I am unable to find wbemdisco

Re: Configuring TPC with HP EVA

hmm.. shoot. I don't remember where it was located. But probably then it doesn't come with CV but with HP SIM.

Re: Configuring TPC with HP EVA

Right, it comes with HPSIM, but it's use is documented in the "HP Insight Remote Support Advanced Vn.n Managed Systems Guide". IRSA is the call-home service solution that plugs into HPSIM.

C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager>wbemdisco IP-addr 5989 interop username password

You can also just run:
> wbemdisco.cmd
