XP10000 Disk Array Monitoring

[ Edited ]

Dear,

I have to monitor an XP disk array with Storage Essentials.
In the Installation Guide (p72), it's written the requirement to discover the XP.
The following must be installed:
HP Storage Appliance Management Software
HP Openview Storage Operations Manager
Command View Advenced Edition

I agree for the last one (Command View), but other software are not available in the XP software list (see link below)
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/xparraysoftware.html

Can you help me to determine which software must be installed to discover an XP Disk Array for the first time in HP SE ?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Re: XP10000 Disk Array Monitoring

The good news is that with SE 5.1 you will get an XP provider that allows managing the XP without the need for additional software.

In the SE installation guide on http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00764512/c00764512.pdf
it says:
Discovering HP StorageWorks XP Arrays
You can discover HP StorageWorks XP Arrays by using the following:
- Command View XP
- Command View XP Advanced Edition
- XP Provider for Storage Essentials.

In the same guide you find a chapter talking about:
Discovering HP XP Arrays by using XP Provider for Storage Essentials


I strongly recommend having SE installed by an experienced person in order to have a succesful and satisfactory installation!

Hi TANI,
Did you get this solved?
We are trying to discover XP20K from SE 6.1, are you aware of a mode setting which is required to allow SE to discover XP's?

Thanks,

How do you want to discover your XP20k?
You do have 3 ways. Find the instructions in the Installation Guide.

Out of the Installation Guide:

Discovering HP StorageWorks XP Arrays
You can discover HP StorageWorks XP Arrays by using the following methods:

- Discovering HP XP Arrays by Using Command View XP and SMI-S, page 145

- Discovering HP XP Arrays by Using Command View XP Advanced Edition, page 146

- Discovering HP XP Arrays by using the built-in XP Provider, page 146

You find the manual (currently still for 6.0) here:
