Publishing connections

You can use the Publish Connection option to reuse the creation information, or parameters, that you enter when you add storage systems. When you use this option, you do not have to re-enter the parameters again.

You can choose to publish storage system creation information to three different locations:

Publishing systems to another user

To publish one or more systems to a specified ESI user or administrator:

  1. In the left pane of the ESI window, select EMC Storage Integrator.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Publish Connection.

  3. In the Publish Connection Information dialog box, set the following field values.



IP Address/Name

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

Publish To

Select Another User to receive the connection information for the published systems.


Type the username to get access to the published systems.


Type a password for the specified user.

  1. Click Refresh to get 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 to accept the list of systems to publish in the Service – Storage and Replication Systems pane.

  4. Click Close to close the dialog box.

Removing or unpublishing systems from another user

You cannot unpublish a system from another user after publishing it with the Publish Connection action or with the ESI PowerShell Toolkit. However, you can remove the systems by running ESI under the user’s session and removing the system with the ESI Remove Systems action or the ESI PowerShell Toolkit.
