Symmetrix VMAX Configuration Management (MR-1CP-SYMCFG)

The course provides participants with the information needed to configure a Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 and prepare it for host access. The course content will emphasize the use of the Symmetrix Command Line interface (SYMCLI) on the Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 Series Array. Time will also be spent on managing configuration changes with the Unisphere for VMAX GUI. The content will cover different types of devices and their functions. Creation, mapping, and masking of devices to traditional and VMware ESXi servers will be included in lecture and lab material. Other topics include Autoprovisioning, Virtual Provisioning, Virtual LUN migration for regular and thin devices, Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST) for disk groups and Virtual Pools, and Federated Tiered Storage.
Lab exercises will cover operational details of all topics

Who should attend this training:
This course is intended for EMC personnel, customers and partners who
Configure Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 devices
Use Symmetrix Enginuity features to manage storage
Use Enginuity features to manage non-Symmetrix storage from EMC and other vendors

To understand the content and successfully complete this course, the student must have an understanding of Symmetrix VMAX 1/2 and VMware vSphere fundamentals.
Labs will be conducted on Unix and Windows systems. Students must be familiar with the editor so they can create files during the lab exercises.
