7.1 Introduction After you have completed the installation of TotalStorage Productivity Center, you must install and configure the Common Information Model Object Manager (CIMOM) and Service Location Protocol (SLP) agents. Note: For the remainder of this chapter, we refer to the TotalStorage Productivity Center, TotalStorage Productivity Center for Fabric and TotalStorage Productivity Center for Data simply as TotalStorage Productivity Center. The TotalStorage Productivity Center uses SLP as the method for CIM clients to locate managed objects. The CIM clients may have built in or external CIM agents. When a CIM agent implementation is available for a supported device, the device may be accessed and configured by management applications using industry-standard XML-over-HTTP transactions. In this chapter we describe the steps for: Planning considerations for CIMOM Installing and configuring CIM agent for Enterprise Storage Server and DS6000/DS8000 Installing and configuring CIM agent for DS 4000 Family Configuring CIM agent for SAN Volume Controller Planning considerations for Service Location Protocol (SLP) SLP configuration recommendation Setting up Service Location Protocol Directory Agent (SLP DA) General performance guidelines
