Zone Summary
Use Quick Search to find a template, report or dashboard by name. Search is case insensitive, supports partial entries, and will display a list of potential matches.
As you enter the name in the Search field, up to 10 potential matches are displayed. If the template, report or dashboard is shown, you can select and run it directly from the match list. You can also click All Items in the match list to go directly to the Search Results.
Use the Explorer to browse through the StorageConsole templates, dashboards and reports. The navigation pane displays templates organized by products along with user-created, and system folders. This report is located here:
Zones provide the mechanism for partitioning one environment from another in a switched fabric. This segregation supports several scenarios, such as restricting access for security purposes or configuring environments with different intents, such as testing versus production. For example, this segmentation scheme could be deployed to differentiate Linux environments from Windows environments, as storage provisioning differs by operating system; zones offer a way to more easily manage storage resources. Note that a device can be in more than one zone.
To facilitate availability and scalability, zones are deployed in a VSAN (Virtual SAN - partitioned physical storage). A zone is first defined and then activated, with only one zone set active at a time.
