Note regarding adding VNX, VNXe or Unity storage devices:
To manage VNX storage devices, you must have Dell's Navisphere CLI tool installed before starting Entuity.

The command line name of the tools are naviseccli and uemcli. For Entuity to manage these devices, the Collection Engine must have access to the tool commands:
- On Linux, the tool should be installed locally in the root directory using .rpm files:
- On Windows, the default install locations are:
- C:\Program Files (x86)\EMC\Navisphere CLI
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell EMC\Unity\Unisphere CLI
