Import system settings

You can import the system configuration from one storage array to other storage arrays. This batch operation saves time when you need to configure multiple arrays in the network.

Imported settings include media scan settings for a volume, SSD settings for controllers, and automatic load balancing (does not include host connectivity reporting).

  1. From the Manage page, click Import Settings .
    The Import Settings wizard opens.
  2. In the Select Settings dialog, select System and then click Next .
    A dialog box opens for selecting the source array.
  3. In the Select Source dialog, select the array with the settings you want to import, and then click Next .
  4. In the Select Targets dialog, select one or more arrays to receive the new settings.
    Note: An array does not appear in this dialog if SAN Manager cannot communicate with that array (for example, if it is offline or if it has certificate, password, or networking problems).
  5. Click Finish .
    The Operations page displays the results of the import operation. If the operation fails, you can click on its row to see more information.
The target storage arrays are now configured with the same system settings as the source array.
