Configuring and Monitoring NetApp E-Series and EF-Series Storage Systems (CMESERIES)

Configuring and Monitoring NetApp E-Series and EF-Series Storage Systems (CMESERIES)

Overview

Duration: 4 Days 

In this course, you learn how to recommend configurations based on a pre-deployment assessment for a new NetApp E-Series or EF-Series storage system. In the deployment phase, you use both the NetApp SANtricity® storage management (v11.30) and system management software to create the configuration, perform administrative tasks and employ data protection features. During post-deployment, you use SANtricity system management software to collect storage system information for trend analysis, troubleshooting, performance monitoring and tuning. 

Objectives

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Identify and use administrative and support tools for E-Series storage systems
  • Install SANtricity Storage Manager software on host platform
  • Recommend and create logical configurations on E-Series storage system
  • Manage volume group and dynamic disk pools using SANtricity System Manager
  • Perform routine E-Series administrative tasks using SANtricity System Manager
  • Configure and administer E-Series features such SANtricity Snapshot image, volume copy and mirroring technologies
  • Collect E-Series storage system information such as the event log, profile and support bundle
