What's new in SANtricity Unified Manager

This version of Unified Manager includes the following new features.

Version 5.0

New feature Description
New storage system model – EF300 This release introduces the EF300 low-cost all-NVMe-flash storage system. The EF300 includes 24 NVME SSD drives and a single host interface card (HIC) per controller. The supported NVMe over Fabrics host interfaces include NVMe over IB, NVMe over RoCE, and NVMe over FC. The supported SCSI interfaces include FC, IB over iSER, and IB over SRP. Multiple EF300 storage systems and other E-Series storage systems can be viewed and managed in Unified Manager.
Certificate enhancements This release allows for using an external tool such as OpenSSL to generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR), which also requires you to import a private key file along with the signed certificate.

Version 4.2

New feature Description
Mirroring configuration changes The tasks for configuring synchronous and asynchronous mirrored pairs have moved from System Manager to Unified Manager. All other tasks for managing mirrored pairs remain in System Manager.
New 200Gb-capable HIC (EF600 arrays only) This release adds a new 200Gb-capable HIC for EF600 storage arrays. Interfaces supported are NVMe/IB, NVMe/RoCE, and iSER/IB. Additionally, 100Gb SRP/IB is supported. This HIC can be configured and managed in System Manager.
Additional options on 100Gb HIC (EF600 arrays only) On the existing 100Gb HIC, iSER/IB and SRP/IB interfaces are now supported for EF600 storage arrays. (These interfaces are already supported for EF570 and E5700 arrays.)

Version 4.1

New feature Description
Fibre Channel support for the EF600

This release adds Fibre Channel host support for the EF600 storage system. This is the first SCSI host supported by the EF600, which initially released with all NVMe over Fabrics host protocols. A single controller for the EF600 can be viewed and managed in System Manager. Multiple EF600 storage systems can be viewed and managed in Unified Manager.

Password requirements for admin user

For first-time login in Unified Manager, you must now enter a password for the administrator user. There is no longer a default "admin" password.

Version 4.0

New feature Description
New storage system model – EF600

This release offers a new EF600 all-flash storage system. The EF600 includes NVMe-oF host interfaces and NVMe SSDs. The EF600 significantly increases throughput and reduces latency. The supported host interfaces include NVMe over IB, NVMe over RoCE, and NVMe over FC, which can be configured in System Manager. Multiple EF600 storage systems can be viewed and managed in Unified Manager.
