BACKGROUND

In order to add some storage targets in Turbonomic we need to connect to an SMI-S provider. In some cases the SMI-S provider is not embedded in the storage appliance and needs to be installed as a client instead. This article aims at presenting a visual (photo) documentation of the installation and configuration procedure.

  • Windows VM
  • SMI- S Provider (e.g. EMC). 

 

CHECKLIST:

  • Have a Windows VM to install the SMI-S Provider
  • Download the latest SMI-S Provider by your storage appliance vendor.
  • Install SMI-S Provider
  • Configure SMI-S Provider (access, credentials, add SPs)
  • Add Turbonomic Storage Target (via SMI-S)
  • Verify Turbonomic Targets
