NetApp SMI-S Provider

NetApp SMI-S Provider takes a long time to start

  • Description

    On Windows systems, with storage systems that are already under management, when you start NetApp SMI-S Provider using the smis cimserver command, the command does not return until the provider local cache is populated. It waits a maximum of 15 minutes while the cache is populated, and you cannot use NetApp SMI-S Provider until it returns.

    Using the smis cimserver command is the recommended method of starting NetApp SMI-S Provider.
