Publishing and unpublishing systems to the extension

Publishing systems to the extension

After confirming the HTTP connections, you must publish EMC storage systems and related EMC replication systems to the extension. After publishing the systems to one of the extensions on one of the Exchange mailbox servers, the extension propagates the system information to the other extensions on the other servers.

To publish the connection information for the systems to the extension on an Exchange mailbox server in the DAG:

  1. In the left pane of the ESI window, on the ESI host controller system, select EMC Storage Integrator.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Publish Connection.

  3. In the Publish Connection Information dialog box, set the following fields:



IP Address/Name

Type the IP address or name of the host system that is running the extension or service.

Publish To

Select ESI Exchange Extension to receive the connection information for the published systems.

Default Port

Accept the default port or clear the checkbox to specify a different port number for the extension.


If you clear the Default Port checkbox, type the port number for the extension.

  1. Click Refresh to view a list of available systems.

  2. In the Local – Storage and Replication Systems pane, select the systems that you want to publish, and then click Add.

  3. Click OK in the Service – Storage and Replication Systems pane to accept the list of systems to publish.

  4. Note: This panel lists systems that were previously published or registered by using the ESI PowerShell Toolkit or this procedure.

  5. Click Close to close the dialog box.

Removing or unpublishing systems from an extension or service

Repeat the previous procedure for publishing systems, but in step 5 click Remove to remove the systems from the Service – Storage and Replication Systems pane.

You can also use the Publish-EmcPublisherConnectionInfo and Unpublish-EmcPublisherConnectionInfo cmdlets in the ESI PowerShell Toolkit to add or remove systems from the published list.
