I'm trying to get the EMC adapter (version 4.0.168071) working with a VMAX in our environment. When I try to add a VMAX to the adapter, I give it:
Management IP address with port :5988
Set connection type of VMAX
Don't add in a license (as this is a trial)
Enter the valid credentials.
I get the error:
"Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. error connecting to array."
When I change the port ID to :5989 I get the error:
"Unable to establish a valid connection to the target system. Wait for response of task 'Test connection' is timed out for collector "vRealize Operations Manager Collector vRealize Cluster node'".
Anyone have a similar issue and manage to fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Are you on VMAX2 or VMAX3? When adding the adapter in ESA, is the ip address you entered for "solutions enabler" or "VMAX unisphere"?
As Zack notes you are attempting to use an SMI-S Provider when ESA 4.0 requires the Unisphere REST API. You need to put in the Unisphere for VMAX IP address. Check out this blog post for detail: ESA 4.0 and Unisphere for VMAX REST API |
I've been trying to use version 4 of the plugin - but I think that it is not supported with the versions of VMAX(s) that I am using:
SymmID Attachment Model Version Size (MB) Devices Devices
0001234567899 Local VMAX-1 5876 120320 11 5836
0009876543211 Local VMAX100K 5977 207872 13 181
0001212121212 Remote VMAX20K 5876 120320 0 3018
I'm looking at the notes and it looks like plugin version 3.3 is the latest supported version for my environment?
ESA 4.0 no longer supports VMAX2 which would be your VMAX-1 and VMAX20K arrays. It will support, however, the VMAX100K which is a VMAX3. The last version of ESA to support VMAX2 and VMAX3 is version 3.5. Just a reminder that ESA 3.5 uses SMI-S and requires that all arrays are seen as Local, not Remote.
