Part Number

You can send an SMI-S artificial indication to determine whether the communication between the listeners and the SMI-S provider succeeds or fails.

  • SMI-S Provider software application must be installed.
  • The network environment is configured so that the computer on which the listener application operates is connected to the SVP.
  • The listeners are subscribed to the SMI-S provider.
  • The user specified for the parameter must have the following roles:
    • Storage Administrator (Initial Configuration)
    • Storage Administrator (System Resource Management)
    • Storage Administrator (Provisioning)
    • Storage Administrator (Performance Management)
    • Storage Administrator (Local Copy)
    • Storage Administrator (Remote Copy)
  • The services of the SMI-S provider should be running.
  1. On the SVP, start Windows command prompt as an Administrator.
  2. Move the current directory to the directory where the tool MappSmisArtificialIndicate.bat exists. Execute the following command:
    cd /d C:\Mapp\wk\Supervisor\MappIniSet
    MappSmisArtificialIndicate.bat serial-number-of-storage-system username password
    Note: C:\MAPP indicates the installation directory of the storage management software and the SVP software. When the installation directory other than C:\Mapp was specified, replace C:\Mapp with the specified installation directory.
  3. The SMI-S artificial indication result message appears. Press any key to continue.
  4. Close the command prompt.
