Course Overview

Course Duration 3 days.
Managing HP 3PAR StoreServ I This course reviews HP 3PAR hardware and architecture along with providing administrators insight into the constructs within the HP 3PAR array family. Topics include Management Console GUI and CLI, Common Provisioning Groups, Thin Provisioning, DAR data encryption and Virtual Lock. Dynamic Optimization and Adaptive Optimization are also discussed. Virtual Copies and Physical Copies are addressed as well. The course is 50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on labs using HP 3PAR arrays. Note: hosts used are MS Windows.

Who Should Attend

  • HP 3PAR administrators who desire training on basic concepts and best practices needed to administer the array.

Course Certifications

This course is part of the following Certifications:


  • An understanding of general storage concepts including fibre channel technologies, RAID, and functional at an Operator level in a Windows environment. (Labs are performed on a Windows host and Command Line labs are cross-platform.)

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this course you should be able to:
  • Know the numbering schemes for the HP 3PAR hardware components
  • Understand data flow and communication concepts in an HP 3PAR controller node
  • Use Management Console GUI and CLI
  • Set-up a Common Provisioning Group (CPG) and manage alerts
  • Create a Thin Provisioned Virtual Volume (TPVV)
  • Use Autonomic Groups (Host Sets and Volume Sets) to simplify provisioning storage
  • Change volume RAID, availability, and service levels using Dynamic Optimization
  • Work with Virtual Lock for Virtual Volumes and Snapshots
  • Administer Virtual Volumes using the CLI and Management Console GUI to manage space
  • Create a Virtual Copy Volume (Snapshot)
  • Create, manage, and remove an Adaptive Optimization configuration
  • Convert a Virtual Volume from fully-provisioned to thin-provisioned
  • Use SmartStart to initialize a 7000 Series array
  • Use HP 3PAR info to analyze luns presented to hosts
