can't discover new Clariion array from RM server on host

Hi,

first few facts:

RM server: win 2003 server SP2, RM v5.2.3.0

RM agent: aix 6.1, ERM Oracle Application Agent V5.2.3.0, EMC Solutions Enabler 7.1.1.0, NAVIAGENT 6.29.5.0, NAVICLI 6.29.5.0, EMCpower.base 5.3.1.0

Clariion: cx4, Flare 04.29.000.5.006, snap view

On aix I attached few luns to this aix host, created vg/lv/fs on this host, and have oracle instances on other disks on Symmetrix and other Clariion.

When I run refresh on hostname -> properties on RM server i get info about all oracle instances, one symmetrix, one clariion, but new clarrion is not there.

In log I have:

2010 05 19 13:06:10 (518) main.  INFO:Starting symmetrix array discovery. /*e*/
2010 05 19 13:06:40 (518) main. 100990 INFO:Number of Symmetrix Arrays Discovered: 1 /*e*/

2010 05 19 13:07:23 (518) main.

I try to run cfgchk.sh wih IP adresses, username and password and all was ok except:

Test name: NAVIAGENT_VERSION, because it searches naviagent in /usr/lpp/NAVICLI ( ?!).

naviagent is installed in /usr/lpp/NAVIAGENT. I put symbolic link in /usr/lpp/NAVICLI caled naviagent and pointing

on /usr/lpp/NAVIAGENT/naviagent, and then cfgchk.sh went ok, but I have same error on array descovery.

I noticed that there isnt any navicli command, just naciseccli. Is it possible that I have too new version of

navicli? In version 6.28 there are both versions?

I was unable to get info about new clariion with "symcfg discover -clariion", I had to add file with ipaddresses of SPs

in it.

But I still can add storage to this host on RM.

On Clariion I see host regulary ( not "Agent host not reachable" ).

Any clue?

Re: can't discover new Clariion array from RM server on host

Hi,

update.

I removed symapi_db_emcrm_client.bin and do array discovery and now I see ma new storage.

But now when I create app set ( one fs from aix filesystem ), creating job there is this error message:

rm_error.JPG

In debug log there are bunch of errors:

seems that there isnt proper communication from rm agent and navicli?
Any hint?

Re: can't discover new Clariion array from RM server on host

Have you tried to re start the RM Server

Can you refer emc211925

Please attach the error from Job History and Summary Log at the time of failure

Re: can't discover new Clariion array from RM server on host

Could you solve this matter? I have the same issue:

Storage Services could not find a suitable plug-in to process GetStorageDetails message. Make sure that all the source filesystems are mounted and are on supported storage arrays.
