How to query zoning configuration via SMI Agent?

  • 1.  How to query zoning configuration via SMI Agent?

    Posted 02-05-2014 04:39 AM

    Hello,

     

    can anybody give me a hint on how to retrieve the active zoning configuration via the SMI-S agent? I've checked the BNA SMI Agent Developer's Guide but did not find any useful information for CIM novices.

     

    What I've done so far is something like

     

    wbemcli ei -noverify -nl -dx 'https://user:password@agenthost:5989/root/brocade1:Brocade_Zone'

     and

     

    wbemcli ei -noverify -nl -dx 'https://user:password@agenthost:5989/root/brocade1:Brocade_ZoneAlias'

     

    but this doesn't give me all wanted information. E.g., ZoneAlias doesn't show the alias' WWPN and Zone doesn't show the actual zone members.

     

    Thanks for your help.

     

    Best regards,

     

    Stephan

    How you want to query or collect the Zoning Information trough the SMI ?

     

    Keep in mind, SMI have the functions to work as Agent, and no mainly to figures out like as Management Software.

    Hi,

     

    for my understanding, the SMI-S Agent acts as standard interface between (my) management application and the SAN fabrics and as such provides basic methods for information retrieval and configuration. For testing, I'm using a command line CIM client from the SBLIM project, and for my application a Perl implementation of the DSP0200 standard.

     

    I was already able to collect most relevant information through the agent (SAN topology, logged-in initiators, etc.) but don't get zone config retrieval to work.

     

    Best regards,
