To use the SMI-S function, create a Device Manager - Storage Navigator user account and specify a storage system as the access destination from the management software.

  1. Create a Device Manager - Storage Navigator user account in the management software. The user account must belong to one of the following built-in user groups:
    • Storage Administrator (View & Modify) User Group: Users have full permissions to access the SMI-S function from the management software.
    • Storage Administrator (View Only) User Group: Users have read- only permissions to access the SMI-S function from the management software.
  2. In the management software program, enter the following storage system information:
    • IP Address of the SVP
    • Protocol: specify HTTPS
    • Port: 5989
    • Namespace:root/hitachi/smis or interop
    Note: If you cannot access the storage system with error message "An error (20121-107097) occurred and the Device Manager - Storage Navigator login fails", you might not have selected the cipher suites corresponding to the key type of the certificate on the TLS Security Settings dialog box.
    1. Connect to the Tool Panel dialog box via an HTTP connection, and enable all cipher suites.
    2. Make sure you can log in to Device Manager - Storage Navigator.
    3. Verify the settings of the cipher suites.

    If this problem occurs again, verify the network environment and the access destination. If you still cannot access to the storage system after taking actions, contact customer support.
