I am looking for a tool/script which verifies the symmetrix/VMAX existing configuration and generates o/p either excel sheet or csv format. This o/p file shows disks their location like engine, DA's, Size, Type etc then devices allocated to each host. FAs and their settings. Cache settings etc. in short complete encyclopedia of a box. A tool like this will be very useful.
Solved! Go to Solution.
A lot of this info can be gathered with solutions enabler commands, it’s just a matter of putting these commands in a script. How’s your Perl/bash ? ☺
We have a tool that we use in Customer Service that will give you the information you want. If you give me the serial number of your vmax I will run it for you.
I had a tool once that read your /var/adm/symcli/symapi_db.bin (something like that) and produced a spreadsheet. I think it was called "SymmReport". I no longer have it.
EMC has a BUNCH of really useful tools that they DON'T give to customers, such as "CAP" for CLARiiONs, which turns "SP-Collects" into a spreadsheet, and a tool that reads HEATs and turns them into spreadsheets.
If we could get them, I'd like to know.
