After you complete the self-installation of your storage system, configure the storage system to suit your requirements using the management software (Ops Center Administrator, Device Manager - Storage Navigator, Command Control Interface, or Hitachi Command Suite).

Typical configuration activities include the following:

  • Onboard the storage system
  • Create pools
  • Create volumes to attach to servers
  • Create a message that appears at login
  • Create user accounts
  • Back up system settings in case you need to restore them in the future
  • Set up spare drives
  • Create pools and volumes
  • Configure Fibre Channel ports
  • Create a message that appears at login
  • Create user accounts, and then back up the accounts
