Installing Navishere within Celerra Manager

Hello,
I'd like to know how I can install Navisphere within Celerra Manager which is connected to Clariion CX300 (Celerra NS35).
Instead of connecting my laptop to the SPA or B directly which is the only way I can connect to Navisphere in order to view additional details such as Raid groups, Luns, etc. that are not easily visible while using Celerra Manager. When I login to Celerra Manager and click on Tools folder, only the SSH Shell tab is available while the Navisphere tab is greyed out and I'm not able to launch.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Please view my previous post for additional details below:

From EMC's support site (https://emc--c.na5.visual.force.com/apex/KB_BreakFix_1?id=kA1700000000Icq):

For any integrated Celerra without FC option, Celerra Manager will show the storage processor management addresses as "Unavailable" (in some earlier versions of 5.6 as "No items to display"). Only Gateway Celerras and integrated Celerras with FC option are actually supposed to display the storage processor IP addresses in the GUI, which can then be used to launch Navisphere to manage the CLARiiON backend.

On integrated Celerras without FC option, other options must be used to manage the CLARiiON backend. The /nas/sbin/setup_clariion command will always be available. Depending on the CLARiiON model and level of FLARE code that is running on it, it may also be possible to use Navisphere Service Taskbar (NST) and/or Navisphere Off-array Manager. Please check on Powerlink for details on whether you can use NST or Off-array Manager or both in your case. The Celerra documentation has more details on the setup_clariion script.

Bottom line is that, at best, Celerra Manager will launch Navisphere - you can't use Navisphere from within Celerra Manager.
