The ESI VNX Adapter enables storage administrators to create, provision, and manage VNX storage arrays with ESI. This adapter supports all VNX storage systems that are supported in ESI.
This adapter has the following prerequisites:
This adapter uses a Secure Shell (SSH) network connection to communicate with VNX file storage systems. Confirm that the standard SSH port 22 is open on the ESI host. If it is not, the connection will fail.
For VNX block storage systems, enable Access Logix on the storage array before connecting a host disk on a Windows host.
Installing the adapter
The ESI VNX Adapter is installed by default with ESI. However, if you changed the default during your installation of ESI, then reinstall ESI and confirm that the EMC VNX Adapter is selected in the InstallShield Wizard Setup window. Prerequisites and Installing ESI provide system prerequisites and installation instructions for the ESI host system.
