Navisphere (NaviCLI) Installation
Copy the the files to the host via WinSCP (will go into the /home/vmadmin folder)
The script (ESX_install.sh) needs the file in the directory to be named naviagentcli.noarch.rpm, the file will usually be named with the version number in it, just rename it as above.
Be sure to get the correct version of the file that corresponds with the level of flare code the SAN is at.
Put the file in a /opt/naviagent folder on the host
Run chmod 777 "filename" (to make all files executable)
root@oocesx1 naviagent# ./ESX_install.sh naviagentcli (command to run install)
ESX_install.sh ver 1.1
The following ports need to be enabled for the software to operate properly
port -> 6389,tcp,in,NaviCLI
port -> 6389,tcp,out,NaviCLI
port -> 6390,tcp,in,NaviCLI
port -> 6391,tcp,in,NaviCLI
port -> 6392,tcp,in,NaviCLI
port -> 443,tcp,out,NaviCLI
port -> 2163,tcp,out,NaviCLI
Do you want to enable ? yes yes
Enabling ports now!
Install operation complete!
Run the script file (if it does not completely run the install, it will at least open the ports.)
To run the install manually run "rpm -ivh filename"
Run "service naviagent start" to start the service after the install.
I had to bounce each host at OOCESX in order for them to Register in Navisphere on the CX3-20.
esxcfg-firewall -o 6389,tcp,in,naviagent (Manual firewall config)
query: esxcfg-firewall -q (Should setting)

Add the host to Navisphere
Install the naviagent software to the host before connecting the cables.
The host should automatically Register with Navisphere after the install / connection, just refresh the display in Navisphere.
The host has to be in a storage group before it will see the storage in VMWare.
Currently we are using one host per storage group and presenting each LUN to each storage group. Make sure to add (or present) each LUN in the same order for each host.
I had to re-boot the host before the host would register.
