1. If you want to create a group for your Fibre channel ports you would click Settings > Resource Groups (Under Resource Mgt.) and select from the available options.
2. You may consider opening a ticket here- because there are many reasons this could be happening and it may depend on what types of devices you have. Do ensure that you are monitoring both ends (array & OS).
3. The SAN module offline is not an issue. The Modules feature is used for delivering updates and patches and should only be used with the assistance of SolarWinds support. They define what information is gathered by the agents and which products are installed on the STM server.
hope this helps-
For more info about groups-
..from the Admin Guide-
and from the Help section: http://www.solarwinds.com/documentation/storage/storagemanager/OrionSTMAdministratorGuide.2.091.htm
In Storage Manager Settings I can't find an option "Resource Groups" and also no Resource Mgt.
I think you are using Storage Manager 5.2 version. "Resource Groups" were renamed as "Device Groups"
Did you find what you were looking for to solve your problem?
