Storage Essentials - Discovery EMC Symmetrix/VMAX arrays via Solutions Enabler

Hi Support,

 

I am working with Storage Essential 9.7 and Solution Enabler client 7.6.


C:\Users\HPSE>symcli
Symmetrix Command Line Interface (SYMCLI) Version V7.6.1.0 (Edit Level: 1755)
built with SYMAPI Version V7.6.1.0 (Edit Level: 1755)

Installation was good and the comunication with Solution Enablare give us expected info like manged Storage list.

My issue is on importing this information into SE, seems that Se and symcli do not have a proper communication.

 

After solutions enabler client installation, I have restarted succesfully AppStorManager service but into its logfile i got this error messages:

 

[2015-03-30 12:47:38] INFO  [main com.appiq.service.system.cimom.Cimom] Have been waiting 3599 seconds for Cimom Default-rmi://localhost:5986 to start

CIM_ERR_FAILED

Do you have any suggestion on integration between SE and EMC Solutions enabler ? How can i discover these kind of devices (Symmetrix/VMAX arrays) ?

 

Thanks.

Regards,

Fabrizio

Re: Storage Essentials - Discovery EMC Symmetrix/VMAX arrays via Solutions Enabler

Check for the following

  1. The solution enabler that you are installing on SE server is a supported one
  2. The solution enabler is 32 bit (only 32 bit is supported by SE)
  3. Check if you find reference of "EMCprovider" starting/probing when you click Test button
