How Discovery Works

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


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