Planning your storage complex setup

During installation, IBM® customizes the setup of your storage complex that is based on information that you provide in the configuration worksheets.

Each time that you install a new storage system or management console, you must complete the configuration worksheets before installation by technical service representatives.

Use the configuration worksheets at IBM Techdocs ( to specify the initial setup for the following items:
  • Company information
  • Management console network settings
  • Remote support (includes call home and remote service settings)
  • Notifications (includes SNMP trap and email notification settings)
  • Control Switch settings
Important: Technical service representatives cannot install a storage system or management console until you provide them with the completed configuration worksheets.
