Learn how to install, cable, and configure the DS8000 system using the IBM TotalStorage DS Storage Manager Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the IBM TotalStorage DS Command-Line Interface (DS CLI). Complete labs on the DS Storage Manager using the offline simulator mode of the DS Storage Manager.

This is an intermediate course for storage administrators, systems programmers, IBM System Engineers (SE), and support groups who install and maintain the DS8000 in the zSeries environment.

Objectives:

  • Describe the benefits of the DS8000 switched Fibre Channel Arbitrated Loop (FC-AL) device attachment and Self-Learning Cache Algorithms (SARC)
  • List the implementation tasks involved in installing and implementing a DS8000
  • Describe the FICON configuration requirements for a DS8000 configuration
  • Explain the zSeries Host Attachment considerations for the DS8000
  • Use the DS CLI and Storage Manager GUI to configure and maintain the DS8000
  • Use Time Sharing Option (TSO) and Device Support Facilities (ICKDSF) commands to invoke copy services for the DS8000
  • Discuss the tools available for monitoring the performance of the DS8000 system
  • Implement DS8000 Copy Services functions and scripting using the DS CLI
