Gatekeeper devices assignment

Do we need to assign Gatekeeper devices to all the client machines consuming storage from the Symmetrix Storage Array or Only the management host requires Gatekeeper devices to  be masked? from which we administer the storage array using symapi/symcli?

AFAIK gatekeeper devices act as an agent conveying the symcli commands we run from the management hosts, and their size negligible(~3Mb).

Re: Gatekeeper devices assignment

Hi Pranav,

When you issue the CLI command,those commands are communicating with storage arrays through gatekeeprs..Only management host required the gatekeeprs and no need to assign to gatkeeprs to all your host.
