SAN Management (MR-1CP-SANMGMT)

Overview:This course is intended for individuals who will perform SAN management activities usingvendor or EMC tools. The Connectrix family of switches are managed to provideconnectivity to host and storage through a SAN. SAN switches are administered through their CLI and GUI management tools for configuration in a multi-switch fabric and to enable communication between the hosts and storage. Fibre Channel, FCIP, iSCSI and FCoE environments are presented for management and switch configuration along with NPIV and NPV. The concepts of EMC SAN best practices, performance monitoring, basictroubleshooting and security are also addressed.

Who should attend this Class:
This course is intended for anyone who presently plans to manage Storage Area Networks in an EMC storage environment.

Prerequisite:
To understand the content and successfully complete this course, a student must have a suitable knowledgebase/skill set. The student must have   an understanding of:
SAN protocols and devices
EMC Storage Area Network (SAN) concepts
Familiarity with operating system and storage array administration

Course Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:
Identify SAN components and list current EMC Connectrix connectivity options, and management tools
