    Hello All,

    We have got a new Storage support project which includes IBM storewise in there environment.
    Client doesnt have much infomation to give us.. we need to figure out details on our own.

    They have provided inventory which includes onlt the serial number and model of the boxes.

    We need to find out management server details, Login ID's etc.

    Please suggest some ways by whic we will get details.

    Thanks in advance.

    If they have a storage insights instance they can grant you access, that's probably the easiest.  Short of that if they don't know IP/Credentials you can use the USB key recovery method.

    You may also want to check out the non-IBM tool called Stor2RRD.

    You can also use Qperf to get the config info:

    Recommended is Storage Insights (free) , even if history is limited (client view) , IBM support has access to more history data.
