Configure SRM with Dell Unisphere Central


I hope someone can help me. We installed SRM in our environment. I am trying to configure it to communicate with our Dell SC5020 datastore. We use Unisphere Central (ver to manage the data store. I have been using this article to configure the datastore, and I found this Youtube video ( that shows you how to enable SMI-S on Unisphere. Now I presume that the video uses an older version, as in our version the SMI-S service is gone. API is enabled on the datastore, but I still cannot setup the connection between SRM and Unisphere. I was able to setup the connection between the SRM and our IBM storage without any problems.

Please can anyone give me some ideas on connecting SRM with our Dell storage?

You may want to open a ticket with support to verify but as of now there are certain configurations where Dell has completely disabled the SMI-S interface and gone fully over to API. We are researching API based polling for these devices as a potential feature in a future release but we don't have a time frame for that functionality on the near term road map.
