How Discovery Works

The PowerMax Integration connects to the Unisphere management interface, which connects to one or more storage arrays. The integration communicates with PowerMax storage using REST API calls to Unisphere and identifies physical and virtual objects in your PowerMax environment. Therefore, a PowerMax user with access to the REST APIs must be provided during configuration of the PowerMax Integration.


If you have more than one Unisphere storage manager monitoring your PowerMax, make sure that you only subscribe to a PowerMax storage array from one of the Unisphere instances. Subscribing to the same PowerMax array from more than one Unisphere instance will result in modeling and metric collection problems.
