Cisco SAN Scanner
Cisco SANs are scanned using the Cisco DCNM. Data for all SAN fabrics managed by the DCNM are automatically collected by a single Cisco SAN scanner instance. Data is collected using SMI-S.
Cisco DCNM user
A user with operator perspective is sufficient for BVQ to collect data from the DCNM (user role "network-operator"). Users with admin perspective will also work (user roles "global-admin", "network-admin", "san-admin", or "san-network-admin").
Gather information for BVQ Scanner configuration
BVQ scanners need the following information to be configured for the DCNM:
- DCNM server IP address or DNS name
- DCNM user and password for the bvq user
- Port number (default: 5989)
- SSL certificate handling
- namespace (default: cimv2)
