• Can I use legacy HPE 3PAR MC software and HPE SSMC servers to manage my storage systems?

    In general, yes. However, with the release of HPE Storage Operating System 3.2.2, HPE SSMC software is the default management tool for HPE 3PAR Storage systems that support HPE Storage OS 3.2.2 and later.

  • Can I use HPE 3PAR CLI to manage my storage systems?

    Yes. However, command line interface (CLI) software is intended primarily for use by advanced users and storage specialists.

  • When I log in to HPE 3PAR MC, I can manage multiple storage systems that have different security credentials. Can I do this with HPE SSMC?

    No. To manage multiple storage systems, each connected storage system must have the same security credentials (user name and password) that are used to log in to the HPE SSMC Main Console. For more information, see the HPE SSMC Administrator Guide.

  • How can I manage more storage systems from an instance of HPE SSMC?

    To be managed, a storage system must be listed on the Storage Systems screen on the Administrator Console and have a connection state of Connected. See the HPE SSMC Administrator Guide for the maximum number of storage systems that can be managed at one time from an instance of HPE SSMC. Learn more: Adding and removing storage systems.

  • Where can I see health details?

    Health panels are included in the Overview view of most detail panes. Learn more: Detail panes quick tour.

  • Why is there an Action button and an Action + button on some dialogs?

    Clicking an Action button performs the action and closes the dialog. Clicking an Action + button performs the action but the dialog remains open. This is helpful when you need to perform the same action repeatedly. For example, the Create Virtual Volume dialog has a Create button and a Create + button. Learn more: Dialog screen details.
