Installing and setting up the VMAX Adapter

Installing the VMAX Adapter

The EMC VMAX Adapter is installed by default with ESI. If you changed the defaults during your installation of ESI, then reinstall ESI and confirm that the EMC VMAX Adapter is selected in the InstallShield Wizard Setup window. Prerequisites and Installing ESI provide system prerequisites and installation instructions for the ESI host system.

Setting up SMI-S

After installing the latest version of EMC SMI-S Provider, use VMAX to create two or more gatekeeper devices and unmask the gatekeepers to the SMI-S server that is hosting the SMI-S provider. Gatekeepers are required for accessing and issuing management commands. EMC Symmetrix VMAX documentation has more details.
