Thanks for participating in the Beta! In order to minimize confusion in the general purpose forum, I'd encourage all Beta feedback to be directed to the Group: Storage Manager Beta | thwack.
Regarding your specific question, can you answer the following:
- Are you using SRM Orion or SRM Profiler?
- What types of arrays (SAN) are you trying to monitor?
- How many disks do you have on each SMI-S Provider?
In general, if you are using SRM Orion, you should not be hitting a scalability limit that would require extra pollers at that disk count. I'm guessing the scalability thresholds are being hit on the providers.
I'm using the SRM Orion.
Working with HP (3PAR) SAN.
Every SAN has it's own provider.
It might be though, that on the SAN's concerning i'm still polling for the old profiler.
I'll check that.
BTW: i've got only left 10 days on the eval license. is it possible to get an extension?
It would be useful to know, at which point does SRM tell you the arrays are "unreachable"? Is it able to connect to them in the "Add a Device" wizard, but then not able to poll them after they are added? Or are you not able to reach them even in the "Add a Device" wizard. If you're already polling them with SRM Profiler, are SRM Orion and SRM Profiler in the same network? Any NAT or Firewall rules between SRM Orion and the arrays that would gunk up communications?
