How did the installation go?

     - Straightforward OVA import in  vSphere cluster.

Have you stepped through the how-to videos?

     - Some

Where are you in the process?

     - Installed controller , discovered 3x VMAX arrays, 2x CiscoMDS Fabrics and one vCenter, added individual hosts, attempted discovering Isilon (failed because of OneFS version not supported), created Tenant, Virtual Array, provisioned block storage to one host

What questions do you have?

     - Best practices for implementing in environment that already has non-ViPR allocated storage

     - What logs we can monitor for progress during discovery ?

Hi bhalilov,

Looks like you are making good progress!

    - Best practices for implementing in environment that already has non-ViPR allocated storage

          Have you explored "Discover Unmanaged Volumes" and "Ingest Unmanaged Volumes" services in the service catalog? They will let you bring any other LUNs already present in your environment under ViPR control.

    - What logs we can monitor for progress during discovery ? You can look at the "controllersvc" service to see the discovery progress.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Regards

Javier
