Connectivity and synchronization with the appliance

The appliance monitors the health status of storage systems and issues alerts when there is a change in status of a storage system. The appliance also monitors the connectivity status of storage systems. If the appliance loses connectivity with a storage system, an alert is displayed until connectivity is restored. The appliance attempts to resolve connectivity issues and clear the alert. If it cannot, you must resolve the issues and use the Storage Systems screen to manually refresh the storage system to synchronize it with the appliance.

The appliance also monitors storage systems to ensure that they are synchronized with changes to hardware and configuration settings. However, changes to storage systems made outside the appliance (such as changing credentials) might cause the storage system to lose synchronization with the appliance, in which case you can manually refresh the storage system.
