What is Host to Storage SAN Implementation Training about?

In this course the different UNIX (AIX HP-UX Solaris and Linux) ESX Server and Windows hosts are configured to use storage through a SAN. SAN switches are administered through their GUI management tools to enable communication between the hosts and storage. EMC VNX and Symmetrix storage arrays are administered through Unisphere Unisphere for VMAX and Solutions Enabler to meet the host's needs. PowerPath is installed and configured in all the hosts for Multipathing capabilities. PowerPath Viewer is configured for a centralized view of the PowerPath environment.

What are the objectives of Host to Storage SAN Implementation Training ?

At the end of Host to Storage SAN Implementation training course, participants will be able to:

  • Qualify and prepare a SAN for implementation
  • List steps to install and configure a Fibre Channel and iSCSI networks
  • Connect and configure a host to a storage array
  • Configure a SAN switch and perform basic operations
  • Configure a storage array and perform basic array operations
  • Perform host configuration for drivers, multipathing, and volume and file system management
