A disk shelf is a physical enclosure containing multiple disk drives. A disk shelf can be connected to a storage area network (SAN) or directly to a server machine.


XIA Configuration Server supports the manual creation of disk shelves and can store information relating to:


  • Manufacturer


  • Model


  • Serial Number


  • Asset Tag


  • Location


  • Support and Maintenance



Hardware items can be automatically detected and a representative image displayed by configuring a hardware definition for the tape libraries in the system.
