You can also use Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager to visualize and report about the hosts which do not have Storage Foundation High Availability products installed on them.

In Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager, you can establish user credentials such that authorized users can access the product to perform sensitive management tasks. Other users can perform only a basic set of operations, or can only view information.

A typical Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager deployment consists of the following:

  • Management Server

  • Managed hosts

A Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager deployment may also discover the following:

  • Virtualization environment

  • SAN/NAS or Unified storage

  • SAN fabrics
