Configuring & Monitoring NetApp E-Series Storage Systems


LENGTH: 32 Hours (4 days)

PRICE: €3.800,00


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 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.


This course focuses on enabling you to do the following:
• Identify and use administrative and support tools for E-Series storage systems
• Install SANtricity Storage Manager software on a host platform
• Recommend and create logical configurations on E-Series storage systems
• 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 as SANtricity Snapshot image, volume copy, and mirroring technologies
• Collect E-Series storage system information such as the event log, profile, and support bundle


This course is designed for Professional Services workers who are NetApp employees, NetApp partners, or NetApp customers.
