The IP Manager discovers and monitors VMware Celerra network-attached storage (NAS) gateways and NAS connectivity problems. It discovers NAS chassis, Control Stations, and Data Movers, and represents them as instances of the NASChassis, Host, and FileServer classes, respectively.

In IP 9.2, once the Control Station is discovered, by default, it will automatically move the File servers attached to it to the Pending List.

Note:

Monitoring of File System of File Servers and DataMovers are not supported.

The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide provides descriptions of these object types.
