EMC Isilon discovery

Discovery uses the EMC Isilon pattern to find components of Dell EMC Isilon.

Discovery can find EMC Isilon running OneFS OS version 8.0 and later.

The EMC Isilon pattern is triggered by the EMC Isilon classifier that is part of the update set you download from Store.

Prerequisites

SNMP Community
Create a SNMP Community credential for the Isilon cluster. The discovery process begins with using SNMP-based queries to classify an application as an Isilon cluster.
EMC Isilon user
Once the application is classified as an Isilon cluster, the discovery process uses REST queries to find information about it. Provide the EMC Isilon user with the following REST capabilities:
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/cluster/config”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/network/interfaces”
  • "https://" + $host_ip + ":8080/platform/3/cluster/nodes/”
  • “https://” + $host + ":8080/platform/3/zones”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/network/pools”
  • "https://" + host_ip + ":8080/platform/3/cluster/nodes/”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/storagepool/nodepools”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/storagepool/storagepools”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/protocols/nfs/exports”
  • "https://" + $host + ":8080/platform/3/protocols/smb/shares"
In addition to these capabilities, this EMC Isilon user must have the following privileges:
  • ISI_PRIV_LOGIN_PAPI
  • ISI_PRIV_AUTH
  • ISI_PRIV_DEVICES
  • ISI_PRIV_NETWORK
  • ISI_PRIV_NFS
  • ISI_PRIV_SMARTPOOLS
  • ISI_PRIV_SMB
Basic authentication
In the Credentials module of the ServiceNow platform, create a basic authentication credential for the same EMC Isilon user.
Upgrade the ServiceNow platform
Upgrade the ServiceNow platform to the relevant patch: Jakarta Patch 10, Kingston Patch 8, or London Patch 1.
Note: The latest patches contain metadata rules for Isilon and its components.
