In order to communicate to HP 3Par You will need to connect to the host name or IP address of the SMI-S Provider that supports the 3Par device (same as management IP). Turbonomic should now be able to connect to the 3Par device to discover all relative inventory components. Discovery may take up to 10 minutes to complete.
