Passed HP0-611: Entry Level SAN Solutions Exam ..!!!

Hi,

Yesterday I appeared for the HP0-611 and passed with a score of 80%. This exam is one of the core requirements to be certified as AIS - StorageWorks. Next, I am planning to give "Implementing EVA". Any inputs on the exam are welcome ...

Thanks,
Karthik S S

Hi Karthik,

I passed HP0-680 a couple of weeks ago. The exam itself is not that up-to-date (mostly based on VCS 2.xxx configurations)
Some areas to study up on:
- Physical Configuration of EVA (Max/Min no. of disks, internal FC-Cabling)
- Capacity questions: e.g. how much usable space for disk group with "x" disks with "y" protection level
- Diagnostics/troubleshooting: OCP, EMU, various LED indicators, log files
- Management questions (Appliance, Command View EVA, SSSU)
- Snapshot/Snapclones (basics)

Good luck!

Stephen

Karthik,
congratulations! I can't help with the EVA test, because mine was quite some time ago, but for next step, Data Protector, I suggest you _really_ work with the thing.

The product comes with a time-limited demo license, in case your employer isn't using it already.

Good luck on your next steps!

Hello,

I've cleared Data Protector (Data Protector basic for windows exam #HP0-606) & HP-UX CSA Exam. Next, I want to take up AIS Storage Works track. So, I'm planning to do the following:

1)HP Entry Level SAN Solutions Exam #HP0-611
2)Implementing Enterprise Virtual Array Exam #HP0-680

Does anyone have the reference material or the links for preparation for the above exams?

Thanks & Best Regards,
Abdul Salam

Abdul:
For Entry level exam I would suggest you to go through the MSA1000 User and Service Guides at,

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/msa1000/documentation.html

The exam is comparitively easier than HP-UX CSA.

Uwe, I have temporarily moved to California, US and will be here till mid August. Not able to pariticipate in the forums much these days :-( .. Hope to meet you in some thread again ..!!

Thank you John ..!!

Karthik,
Many congratulations for clearing this exam that too with 80 %.

Well, i have seen you more interested in storage area and learning more on it. Well i would like tell you about SNIA SNCP certification exam which is more comprenhensive and talk much about storage / Fibre Channel.

Have a look at this site:

www.snia.org

You can appear for this exam in 3 levels and get recognised as SNCP certified Engineer.

With best comlpiments,
Bharat

Uwe,

Vacancy?? Do you mean in ITRC or India?? ;-) .. hey come on I did not quit my job from India. It is just that I am on a business trip to the US :-))


Bharat,

Thanks a lot ... Yes you got it right. Somehow FC SAN fascinates me a lot. Ask Uwe he will explain you better :-)) ... By the way I have already considered taking up SNIA exams and it is in the pipe-line :-) ..
