Programm
The Managing HPE 3PAR StoreServ I course is designed for the new or entry-level HPE 3PAR administrator. The goal of the class is to acquaint the 3PAR administrator with the most common day-to-day tasks and best practices associated with administration of the 3PAR array. The levels of provisioning storage are emphasized.
This training reflects the newest release of the HPE 3PAR OS: 3.3.1. The course is approximately 50% lecture and 50% hands-on labs using HPE 3PAR arrays. NOTE: Hosts used in the lab environment are MS Windows.

At the conclusion of this course, the student should be able to:
  • Explain the numbering schemes for the HPE 3PAR hardware components: controllers, ports, and physical disks
  • Use the StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) GUI and the CLI to perform administrative tasks
  • Create and work with a Common Provisioning Group (CPG)
