Cisco UCS Director supports EMC VNX Block, File, and Unified accounts for the VNX versions 5100, 5200, 5300, 5400, 5500, 5600, 5700, and 7500.
For a VNX Block account, you create the following:
- Storage pools
- Storage groups
- RAID groups
- Logical Unit Numbers (LUNs)
The reports available for VNX Block accounts include details on all of these items, as well as on storage processors, ports, data movers, and disk devices. You can also view tabular reports for RAID groups or hosts, and instant reports for file system allocation, the top five storage capacity file systems, the top five file systems file count, and the top five storage capacity volumes.
For a VNX File account, you create use either Common Internet File Servers (CIFS) or Network File System (NFS) Export. For CIFS, you create the CIFS servers and shares, and the Domain Name System (DNS) domains.
For NFS Export, you create the following:
- Storage pools for files
- File systems
The reports available for VNX File accounts include details on these items, as well as system overview summaries.
For a VNX Unified account, which combines VNX Block and VNX File, you perform all the steps needed for both VNX block and VNX file accounts.
You can view any of the reports available for VNX block or VNX file accounts.
