HP have 2 integrations with Virtual Machine Manager , this post will cover the basic install of the HP Storage UI Add-In for System Center , this tool provides a overview of the storage connected to the Microsoft Hyper-V / Microsoft Virtual Machine Manager Installation , 2nd a post will cover SMI-S integration for assigning storage to Hyper-V hosts

 

This post will cover the install and a few screen shots of the UI integration with Virtual Machine Manager

Start the installer

image 

This is the install on the Virtual Machine Manager server so we will select HP Storage UI Add-In Server

image

Select path for install

image

Go Go

image

Install should not take more than a few minutes

image

DO NOT use a domain admin for this purpose , testing with the Hyper-V management account , not sure why HP wants to use a domain admin seems like a terrible idea

image

So i will use the Hyper-V account used in VMM again needs further testing

image

Go to Settings Console Add-Ins , ensure that you did a run as administrator when launching the VMM console

image

Import the add-in

image

Go Go

 

image

Add the HP 3PAR storage systems through VMM

image

Set the IP address on the 3PAR’s and select the action account

image

Just for testing i added the FC and NL for provisioning in a later post

image

Go Go

image

In the VMM console select HP Storage Management , and select Authorize on the storage systems , this will prompt for credentials

image

And we now can see what LUN on the 3PAR a VM is located on and what paths/speed is used

image

And a general overview of the 3PAR
