    Notifications for EMC Clariion - Disk status other than ok


      Hi all,

      I am working on an alert to be sent when and EMC Clariion disk status is something other thank ok, but I think that is too broad. Instead I would like to know if anyone has a list of possible disk status's that the EMC provider returns for disk drives to alert on.

      Thanks in advance.

          Hi Shane,

          1. Go to: Threshold Rules

          2. Create a new rule based on > Threshold Rules.

          3. Give it a name

          4. Section = Storage Array

          5. Category = Disk Drive Asset

          CLARiiON drives usually are listed as x_x_x for example 0_0_0

          6. Move the CLARiiON disks over to the "Selected" box.

          7. Condition: Operational Status != OK (not equal to)

          You should get an alert if you've set your mail address and groups up correctly.
          If you haven't, do the following:

          1. Provide email SMTP details under Settings > Server Setup: E-Mail

          2. Go to: Settings > Manage Users > edit your account (admin) > add your mail address

          3. Add Notifications by Group or Resource. If the CLARiiON is in a group with other EMC equipment or storage arrays then select that group instead.

          4. @ Severity, chose Critical, Error  and Warning. That should be enough to trigger an alert when the Operational Status changes. Please Confirm.

          5. Add yourself as the subscriber.
