Dell Compellent’s Enterprise Manager is growing up and has been rebranded Dell Storage Manager, since it can now manager SC and PS storage. DSM is available as a VMware Appliance, and that is what we will use to deploy DSM.
First things first – You’ll need to get the download link from CoPilot, as it is not publicly available in Knowledge Center.
Once you have the DSMVirtualAppliance-16.xxxx.zip file, extract it and deploy the OVF file as you would any other appliance in VMware.
Once deployed and running, you have a few options:
1- Download the Client, Admin Guide, etc (Do this by going to https://appliance_IP)
2- Run the Setup (https://appliance_IP/setup
We are going to run the setup
Start by hitting the URL https://appliance_IP/setup
Add you existing SC and PS Storage Systems and you’re ready to rock and roll
