DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH

This patch fixes the following incidents:

Patch ID: Patch_7_3_10001_23_3942942

* 3942942 (Tracking ID: 3943399)

SYMPTOM:
InfoScale Storage does not identify ScaleIO block storage from Dell EMC.

DESCRIPTION:
Dell EMC ScaleIO is a software-defined storage solution that uses local storage of the existing servers to
create a virtual SAN. However, storage provisioned by ScaleIO is not discovered by SFW. Hence, SFW is not able to categorise storage from ScaleIO 
into a seperate enclosure and also cannot utilize the storage feature like thin provisioning.

RESOLUTION:
As a part of this hotfix, device discovery module is developed in SFW for ScaleIO. It identifies the storage 
available from ScaleIO and all the attributes like VDID, device type, array media type, serial number for use.
