HDS NAS (HNAS) data source

The HDS NAS (HNAS) data source is an inventory and configuration data source to support discovery of HDS NAS clusters. Insight supports discovering NFS and CIFS shares, file systems (Insight Internal Volumes), and spans (Insight Storage Pools).

This data source is SSH based, so the acquisition unit that will host it needs to be able to initiate SSH sessions to TCP 22 on the HNAS itself, or the Systems Management Unit (SMU) that the cluster is connected to.

Terminology

OnCommand Insight acquires the following inventory information from the HNAS data source. For each asset type acquired by Insight, the most common terminology used for this asset is shown. When viewing or troubleshooting this data source, keep the following terminology in mind:

  • Device IP address
  • Port 22, SSH protocol
  • Username and password - privilege level: Supervisor
Note: This data collector is SSH based, so the AU that hosts it must be able to initiate SSH sessions to TCP 22 on the HNAS itself, or the Systems Management Unit (SMU) that the cluster is connected to.
