dell powervault remote login / role

If anyone uses a dell 'power vault' device within their environment, do you know the name of the remote management application, and default login address/port number, e.g. can it be accessed via  a browser, or do you need to RDP onto the machine itself?

Also, as dell networking equipment is something fairly new to me, if you have 2 Dell Equalogic SAN's (one at a primary site and one at a DR site), and use backup exec for the backup application, what exactly is a 'dell powervault' for in relation to a disc-to-disc (SAN to SAN) backup process? e.g. what role does it play?

Do you have the Modular Disk Storage Manager (MDSM) installed anywhere ? It's available as a download from Dell.

There are many different "dell powervaults" they could be iSCSI or Direct Attached SA/DAS.

It could just be a backup location used by Backup Exec.

thanks. Will ask around, is MDSM something you can access remotely through a browser, or a local app that you'd need to RDP onto to access?

MDSM is installed on your management workstation.

it could be installed on a server, which you use for Admin, and can access remotely.
