Fabric monitoring/visibility for PowerVC

Hello team,

We have PowerVC 2.0.2 and during migration storage fabrics were replaced as well. Unfortunately without accounts for PowerVC. Once that was done PowerVC was blind for that, we tried:
- create new LUN - it failed, without any notification about Fabric
- create new virtual machine - it failed with the same reason
- modify existing LUN - it was completed successfully.

So you can see that if monitoring of fabric would be on place then could find the issue much faster. Because if we clicked on Fabrics details it was all red, but with new LUN creation there was no information about the Fabric.
