Discovery and Identification
HP Systems Insight Manager discovers the storage systems that are on the LAN network and Command View storage device managers running on managed systems or devices. For internal disks, that HP Systems Insight Manager inventory component is able to identify all of the drives installed, the disk manufacturer, models, disk types, firmware revision, the internal location of the drive in the system, and the details of the controllers that they are managed by. For RAID drives, the RAID type (1 to 5) and manufacturer is discovered in addition to the details gathered for the internal drives. For SAN systems, HP Systems Insight Manager discovers the Command View servers that manage the devices on the SAN.
