I would be responsible for Knowledge Transition for a customer using VMAX 20k.
I haven't worked on 20K before but have experience in VNX.
Could you guys please help me with the list of documents I need and probably if someone can share some templates that would help me document the environment in a better way. The customer doesn't hav good process in place, so would be a lot of effort for me.
Thank you so much for your help!!
If you're not familiar with VMAX management. Probably you should start from Solutions Enabler & Unisphere for VMAX documents on support.emc.com. The product documents provide the general management tasks of VMAX. Below are the links:
Thank you for your reply.
I am already aware of Unisphere and Solutions enabler, what I am looking at is some standard process related documents, best practices to follow or some kind of key point agenda that I should be looking at.
As suggested earlier, the customer really don't have anything other than the configuration report that EMC provides after installation.
Thank for your help.
If you are already familiar with Unishere and solutions enabler then your are most of the way there. Best practices for configuring VMAX is make sure it is balanced.
There are a number of presentations which go through this subject which you can search for on emc support.:
I would always allow for the following basic rules as a starting point, below some pointers I would always look for at first glance.
The list above is a short summary of what is detailed in may of the docs but it will give you an idea of what you need to look out for. Look for documents that explain FAST in a VMAX as those docs cover a lot of the best practices even without considering FAST.
Thank you very much for your reply.
I have noted down the pointers, let me have a look at the current state of infrastructure and I would like to trouble u with some more questions.
