Implementing and Supporting Hitachi Unified Storage (TCI2208)

This 4 day instructor-led course covers the installation and configuration of the Hitachi Unified Storage (HUS) family and describes the specifications, architecture and components for each model. In addition, it takes you through the various steps to plan and perform installations, and introduces you to the Web Tool, Hitachi Storage Navigator Modular 2 (SNM 2) GUI and CLI. Once familiar with these tools, you will perform storage array operations, including creating RAID groups, mapping volumes and exporting Constitute files, and performing maintenance activities, including replacing and adding components. Finally you will go through the firmware update process, operational alerts and issues, and troubleshooting options.

The classroom sessions are supported by lab exercises.
