I suspect the agent is trying to call some utilities on the host that dont exist.

There is very limited help and information on this product out there, so any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Storage Essentials - Discovery Errors

How are you discovering the Cisco Switch? Are you using SNMP or SMI-S? SMI-S is not currently supported on the MDS series, I believe.
