Hey safwan,

Yes this definitely works, you will need to install and configure an SMI-S provider on your agent...  This should help Installing and Configuring EMC SMI-S Provider and Solutions Enabler Appliance (VNX/CLARiiON) (just follow the instructions for installing and configuring the provider).  Once you have the SMI-S provider installed and you have added your arrays, adding the VNX in solarwinds is very easy; you will be prompted to add the IP where you installed the provider and it will then run a scan for the arrays that you have added to the provider. 

You can get the provider here:

Below are some screenshots of my VNX 5300 in solarwinds:

Hi Safwan,

Yes, SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor can absolutely monitor the EMC VNX family of devices. You can see details of what that support looks like in our live Orion Demo -

VNX support includes block and file side monitoring of performance, capacity, and configuration data.
