Planning a DS8000 series installation
This planning information defines preinstallation requirements for the IBM® DS8000® series. It is important to ensure that you meet all requirements to help achieve a fast and reliable installation.
Good planning is essential for the successful setup and use of your storage system. It ensures that you have everything that you need and that you meet all the prerequisites for the storage system. It minimizes errors and helps installation go faster. Use this planning information to place your storage system, plan power and environmental needs, and prepare for unique configurations that are based on how you plan to use your storage system.
Configuration worksheets provides several worksheets that must be completed for each storage system. Use the worksheets to record information that is needed by your IBM service representative to install and initially configure the storage system.
If you cannot meet any of the installation requirements, notify your IBM service representative to devise alternative solutions.
