API to manage VNX devices remotely

Hi,

I would like to develop a Java client to manage a VNX array and perform basics operations (create/retrieve/delete pools and luns, iscsi operations, etc.).

I've been looking everywhere to find an existing API to manage remotely VNX devices, but i couldn't find any concrete documentation or Java examples how to do it.

So my question is, nowadays, is it possible to perform such a thing ? For example is there a RESTful API in XML or JSON ?

Appreciate your help.

Thanks.

Vivien

You can get some articles on Powerlink that can help you with the API information for programming.

eg:

- XML API Programmer Guide for VNX for Filehtml

- Software Development Kit Remote API Programmer’s Guide.pdf

If you don't have access to those articles, let me know so I can send you by email.

Cheers!

Re: API to manage VNX devices remotely

Hello Parrig,

I am using CLI command scripts to monitor our VNX as of now. If you have any documents per se that contains APIs that can monitor VNX I can take a look at the coverage (CLI vs API) and see if I can port. So please send those docs to my login ID 'developarvind at gmail dot com' Thank you!
