Storage  SMI-S Providers
* Note: For the SMI-S provider type, a value of “proxy” indicates that you must install the SMI-S provider on a server that the VMM management server can access over the network by IP address or by FQDN. Do not install the SMI-S provider on the VMM management server itself

 

Now VMM 2012 with SP1, supports the following types of storage providers:

  • SMI-S CIM–XML
  • SMP

Besides the new SMP provider type, the VMM 2012 SP1 release adds the following new functionality:

  • Supports auto (dynamic) iSCSI target systems, such as the Dell EqualLogic PS Series. System Center 2012 – Virtual Machine Manager supported only static iSCSI target systems.
  • Supports the thin provisioning of logical units through VMM. Your storage array must support thin provisioning, and thin provisioning must be enabled for a storage pool by your storage administrator
