For this task, when you use the console, you need to have Smarts administrator credentials to open the Configure menu where you specify the ScaleIO credentials.

  1. Open the Service Assurance Manager Global Console attached to the Server Manager (INCHARGE-ESM, by default).

  2. In the Topology Browser Console, select Configure > Domain Manager Administration Console.

  3. Right-click the ESM server in the left pane and select Configure ESM credentials.

  4. In the Configure ESM credentials dialog box, select ScaleIO for the host type.

  5. Type values in the following fields:




ScaleIO Gateway host IP Address or hostname.

User ID

ScaleIO MDM Administrator user name.


ScaleIO MDM Administrator password.


Port number for the ScaleIO service. Default is: 443.

  1. Click Apply credential with testing.

  2. Verify that your ScaleIO credentials are accepted by checking the status indicator in the Configure ESM credentials dialog box.

    A green Passed test status indicates that the credentials are accepted.

    If the ScaleIO credentials are not accepted, confirm that the credentials are correct and enter them again in the Configure ESM credentials dialog box.

    You can also check the log file: “Verify that ScaleIO credentials are accepted in the log file” on page 193

  3. Click Close.

  4. In the Domain Manager Administration Console, select your IP Manager and select Topology > Discover All to discover ScaleIO. At the end of the IP Manager discovery process, the Server Manager discovery process is automatically started.
