if the SAN is Equallogic and if the workstation has access to the iSCSI network,  you can install SAN HQ (a free tool for Equallogic managment) to monitor the SAN.   Alternatively you can you use the Group Managment page to manage the SAN as well from the workstation

If your workstation has no access to iSCSI network but only management access,  you would need to create a dedicated managment network on Equallogic SAN to monitor the SAN from LAN network using SAN HQ or Group Managment webpage.
