This course is intended for individuals who will perform SAN management activities using vendor or EMC tools. The Connectrix family of switches are managed to provide connectivity to host and storage through a SAN. SAN switches are administered through their CLI and GUI management tools for configuration in a multi-switch fabric and to enable communication between the hosts and storage. Fibre Channel, FCIP, iSCSI and FCoE environments are presented for management and switch configuration along with NPIV and NPV. The concepts of EMC SAN best practices, performance monitoring, basic troubleshooting and security are also addressed.


Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify SAN components and list current EMC Connectrix connectivityoptions, and management tools
  • Perform basic maintenance and configuration tasks on EMC Connectrix BSeries and MDS-Series switches
  • Describe security options for a SAN
  • Show the software licensing options for each Connectrix family of switches
  • Configure virtualization features in a SAN, including VSANs, Virtual Fabrics, NPIV, NPV and Access Gateway
  • Manage zoning
  • Describe the components of a Fibre Channel fabric
  • Expand a Fibre Channel fabric by merging switches
  • Extend a Fibre Channel Fabric using a FCIP tunnel
  • Configure a native iSCSI SAN
  • Describe a basic FCoE configuration
  • Perform basic troubleshooting using SAN Management tools


This course is intended for anyone who presently plans to manage Storage Area Networks in an EMC storage environment.
