Storage Manager

Storage manager is all things storage.  Creating volumes and managing them happens here.  You can have a bird’s-eye view of your entire storage platform or peek into individual disk’s S.M.A.R.T. Info.  Disk Doctor is there to perform an instant or scheduled Bad Block Scan or S.M.A.R.T. Scan.  You can also create and manage all aspects of an iSCSI target or LUN, including port.
