EMC Information Storage and Management (ISM) v2 - Labs

The EMC ISM v2 labs introduce the principles and concepts of storage area networking technologies. These labs offer hands-on practice in the skills needed to make informed decisions about storing, managing and protecting digital information.

The NETLAB+ EMC ISM v2 pod is used to support the EMC Information Storage and Management (ISM) course.

These labs are also available as an NDG Online hosted lab offering.

Please review the content-specific requirements for EMC ISM v2 labs.

Enabling the Labs

To enable the EMC ISM v2 labs, check the box for "EMC ISM v2 Labs" in the class settings. This must be done for each class requiring access to the labs.


Using the Labs

Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.

Importance of Choosing the Correct Lab Exercise

Several of the labs may differ from the standard pod topologies. This is handled by NETLAB+ Dynamic VLAN Mapping technology. Always select the correct lab exercise for the actual lab. This insures that NETLAB+ will set up VLANs on the control switch such that lab devices and PCs are placed in the correct LAN segment for the exercise being performed. Selecting the correct exercise will also make the completed lab output easier to find in the archive.
