A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

This plugin tests an IBM Storwize V7000.

The V7000 uses IBM's San Volume Controller (SVC) code as the base for its controllers, so this health check may work with SVC itself, but I can't test that.

For this script to work, you need to first setup an ssh key with no passphrase to access your V7000.

I recommend creating a nagios user specifically for this test.

In the V7000, create a user named "nagios". Put it in the "Monitor" User Group so it has limited access. Then, upload an ssh public key that doesn't have a passphrase.

You should test the ssh key to confirm it is working (and not prompting for a password) before trying to run this script.
