You will need all of the above. Navisphere is kind-of optional but a really nice to have when you query servers from the EM C management stations, it gives you some real good data. Powerpath, definitely. Even if you are old XP1024 or others user with securepath, PowerPath is much superior multipathing software, I was told by our SAM admins. Snapview, if you are going to do snaps, you have to have it.

Bottomline, you will need all of the above.

SAM admins ? Sorry it should have read rather "SAN" admins. Unfortunate placement of N and M keys and fast typing handicap...

Hi,

if you want connect a HP-UX to the clariion,
you need to install naviagent, and if you need make some operation directly from the box, navicli ( now naviseccli ).

Powerpath is cool software, but only with a EMC products, from a version 5, doesn't support other vendor products ( hitachi/HP ... ), checked in december 2008, maybe somebody in EMC made a change in Support policy => Check support on powerlink.emc.com

On our production SAP cluster, we don't use powerpath now, switch to PV links, powerpath doesn't support Hitachi box.

Snapview - activated newer used

2, yes from navisphere
3, powerpath don't need any agent, after installation is the kernel rebuild required = reboot.
