Introduction to Lab Exercises


Purpose:

This lab is designed to familiarize the user with the configuration


and management of a CLARiiON Storage System using the
Navisphere Manager Graphical User Interface (GUI). The
Navisphere Manager GUI is very robust in its ability to provide the
necessary information for day-to-day management of a CLARiiON
data storage environment, while providing an easy to use,
Windows look and feel. This lab will walk the user through the
steps necessary to create and allocate data storage on a
CLARiiON Storage System as well as acquaint the user with
optional CLARiiON software that allows for disaster recovery and
staging data for online data backups.

Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:


Configure RAID Groups on a CLARiiON Storage System
Bind LUNs to RAID Groups on a CLARiiON Storage
System
Configure Storage Groups on a CLARiiON Storage System
Configure Snapshots
Create Clones
Create SANCopy Full and Incremental Sessions
Create MirrorView Synchronous and Asynchronous Images
Expand a LUN to create metaLUNs
Migrate a LUN to another LUN

Lab Exercise 4: Configuring SnapView Snapshots


Purpose:

A snapshot is a virtual LUN that when activated, allows a


secondary server to view a point-in-time copy of a source LUN.
An active snapshot is a composite of a source LUN and reserved
LUN data that lasts until you destroy the snapshot. Each
snapshot is linked to a source LUN(s). If the storage system loses
power while the SnapView session is running both the session
and snapshot would survive the storage system power failure, as
long as all sessions run in persistent mode.
Writes to an active snapshot from a secondary server are stored
in the reserved LUN pool until the snapshot is deactivated. When
a secondary server deactivates the snapshot, the software
destroys all writes made to the snapshot.

Objectives:

In this exercise, students will:

Lab Exercise 5: Configuring SnapView Clones


Purpose:

A clone is a complete copy of a source LUN. You specify a source


LUN when you create a clone group. The copy of the source LUN
begins when you add a clone LUN to the clone group. The
software assigns each clone a clone ID. This ID remains with the
clone until you remove the clone from its group.
While the clone is part of the clone group and unfractured, any
production write requests made to the source LUN are simultaneously
copied to the clone. Once the clone contains the desired data, you can
fracture the clone. Fracturing the clone separates it from its source LUN,
after which you can make it available to a secondary server.

Objectives:

In this exercise, students will:

Lab Exercise 7: Creating Synchronous and Asynchronous

Mirrors
Purpose:

A remote mirror consists of a primary image and up to two


secondary images. The production image (the one mirrored) is
called the primary image; the copy image is called the secondary
image.
MirrorView/S supports up to two remote images. Each image
resides on a separate storage system. The primary image
receives I/O from a server called the production server; a
separate storage system maintains the secondary image. This
storage system can optionally have a failover/standby computer
connected to it or can be connected to its own computer system.
Both storage systems can be in different domains, which you
manage with the User Interface (UI). The client that is managing
the storage system containing the primary images can fail over to
the secondary image if the primary image becomes inaccessible.
In the previous labs, you created RAID Groups, Storage Groups
attached hosts, and created Clones and Snaps. CLARiiONs
arrays support two (2) types of mirrors - Synchronous and
Asynchronous.
The creation of RAID Groups Storage Groups and LUNs should
have already been done on BOTH ARRAYS.

Objectives:

In this exercise, students will:

Remote Mirrors

Note The write intent log keeps track of writes that have not yet been made to the
remote image for the mirror. It allows for fast recovery when the primary storage
system fails. When the primary fails and is recovered, the write intent log is used to
synchronize the data on the remote image. Otherwise, a full resynchronization
would be required for the remote image. In situations where you must replace the
primary storage system due to a catastrophic failure, you can use a promotion to
access data on the secondary storage system. To recover and restore I/O access,
you must promote a secondary mirror image to the role of primary mirror image, so
that a server can access it.

Navisphere Manager Simulator Lab v3.28

Purpose:

Expanding LUNs on a CLARiiON is how you can increase the


capacity of an existing LUN
You must first create a LUN to use for the base metaLUN.
MetaLUNs can be created using two methods
The LUN migration feature lets you move the data in one LUN or
metaLUN to another LUN or metaLUN. You might do this to
change the type of drive the data is stored on (for example, from
more economical ATA to faster FC, or vice-versa), to select a
RAID type that better matches the data usage, and/or recreate a
LUN with more disk space.

Objectives:
