Symmetrix Configuration Managament

In this course, you will gain the skills needed to configure a Symmetrix and prepare it for host access. You will focus on the use of the Symmetrix command line interface (SYMCLI) on the Symmetrix V-Max Series Array. You will also cover managing configuration changes with the Symmetrix Management Console (SMC) GUI. You will cover different types of devices and their functions as well as creation, mapping, and masking of devices. You will explore setting Symmetrix metrics and RDF group attributes, and other topics, including Auto provisioning, Virtual Provisioning, Virtual LUN migration for regular and thin devices, Fully Automated Storage Tiering (FAST) for disk groups, and Virtual Pools. Lab exercises will cover operational details of all topics.
