SRM and IBM DS3500

Hello everyone,

We currently have 2 sites that  we have (at each site) 2 IBM x3650 M3 vSphere4.1 attached to an IBM  DS3524 SAS Bay, an IBM x3550 M3 server vCenter.

Bay DS3524 Site #1 replicates the bay DS3524 Site #2 by ERM (Enhanced Remote Mirroring) fiber.

We want to automate the switch between the two sites with SRM.

According to document our srm_storage_partners.pdf DS3524 is compatible with SRM

Before investing in the product, I'm doing tests with SRM.
I installed SRM on my two servers vCenter and I set the connection between the two.
I then setting the option "Array Managers" on the first screen I set the options of the DS3524 array of Production:

Then on the next screen, the options in the Bay DS3524 Backup:

My problem is that the next screen I have nothing.

I'm doing "Rescan Arrays" I have nothing that appears.

Could someone help me?

thank you in advance
