Sample Value
The domain identifies the top level of your host group hierarchy. The name was supplied during the installation process. All newly discovered hosts are added to the root host group associated with this domain. Typically, only one Domain will be available in the drop-down list.
If you are a Managed Services Provider, each of your customers will have a unique domain with its own host group hierarchy.
To find your Domain name select Admin > Hosts and Domains > Domains.
Array Addresses*
Enter one or more CLARiiON storage array address(es) separated by commas.
List only one SP (storage processor) IP address per array.
Typically, only the IP addresses are required, with port 443 used as the default. To change the port that the Data Collector uses to communicate with the array, use the format:
