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.

By the end of this course, you should be able to:
  • Install the SANtricity 11.50 Storage Management software
  • Install SANtricity Unified Manager
  • Access System Manager features
  • Configure attached servers for I/O operations
  • Administer your storage using the E-Series storage management features
  • Monitor E-Series storage system performance
