Release – IBM Storage Management Console for VMware vCenter version 3.0.0

A new version of the IBM Storage Management Console for VMware vCenter (3.0.0) has been released.  Enhancements in this version includes:

Support for IBM Storwize V7000 Unified and IBM Scale Out Network Attached Storage (SONAS)

Consistent display of volume names in the vSphere environment

-Any volumes created via the plug-in are now tagged in vSphere panels with the same name as was given when the volume was created.  So if my volume name “Test1” when I look in the storage management GUI, I also see “Test1” in my vSphere panels (like the Add Storage Wizard).

Multipath policy for vSphere hosts can now be changed from the plug-in

-This new feature allows for individual LUNs to have the multi-path policy changed which will be reflected across all hosts with access to the LUN, or it can be set for all volumes from a storage system.  An example of this would be setting the default policy on Storwize V7000 to be Round-Robin, and all new LUNs created via the plug-in will be set with this policy.


There are other enhancements which you can read about here:

The plug-in is available for no cost and works with IBM XIV, Storwize V7000, Storwize V7000 Unified, SONAS, and SAN Volume Controller.
