Course Details

Overview

This course explores the technology of the Enterprise Virtual Array focusing on configuration and management. The product concepts and terminology are initially presented to ensure a grasp of the key elements of the array. The configuration is then performed through the Command View GUI. More detailed topics are then presented such as snapshots/ snapclones/ mirrorclones and the SSSU command line as well as EVAPerf.

Objectives

This 5-day course combines theory and practical labs to teach how to manage the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array. The hardware, concepts and terminology are covered in-depth followed by configuration tasks which include Command View EVA, Local Replication using Business Copy EVA with Snapshots, Snapclones and Mirrorclones, Replication Solutions Manager for Business Copy, Multi-path management with HP MPIO DSM on Windows, native multi-pathing on HP-UX 11iv3, command line/scripting with SSSU, Upgrading controller and disk drive firmware.
