This involves a lot of tasks, would be better to take assistance from local EMC team.

Re: Vmax 10k Configuration

Hello,

Just to complete the thought, the VMAX 10K is completely configured when it arrives from manufacturing.  Part of the CE installation process is to run a install script.  This is a series of CLI commands which build the TDATS, define the pool,s and define the FAST VP tiers and basic policy.  The customer is not part of this process.  Its completely done by the EMC CE and is part of our installation so no additional charges.  I would strongly recommend that the array be deployed as it was configured since this has proven to be the optimal layout.

Re: Vmax 10k Configuration

Thanks for the reply ,  i am from the partners . the vmax came with emc rack and installed on 3rd party rack . which  i have done so far along with the proper cabling .

now my question is what are the next steps , To generate credential  and install bin . is this my responsibility or for that there should be an emc engineer to complete the remaining tasks.

Re: Vmax 10k Configuration

Correct, EMC CE needs to do the remaining steps now that you have the physical install completed.  I would also remind the CE to execute the software scripts since they may not always be familiar with that part.  Its really just the second part of the install and ask if you want to use the mfg layout, then it will execute all the correct CLI.

The is an article on the support site describing how to install a 10K but you wont be able to complete it yourself.
