P4000 training?

My company does 3rd party maintenance and purchased a P4300G2 as part of a plan to service the Lefthand product line, my part of it is to give a course to our Field Engineers in installing, servicing, and maintaining this product line. By the way, I know nothing about this product, my background is HP-UX.

 

HP doesn't provide training on this so can somebody give me suggestions or point me someplace that can get me started on creating a course? I need to create a syllabus too.

Re: P4000 training?

Hi,

 

I am a trainer for HP Belgium and some other countries around, and one of the (popular) trainings is the Lefthand course...

So it definitely exist... Look for instance for the code HK364S...

Re: P4000 training?

thanks Bart,

I am thinking my company might not want to pay that money for me to attend the HP course and, if they dont then I am stuck trying to figure something out for myself :(

Re: P4000 training?

Hi Mark,

 

As a certified instructor I am not allowed to give out any training material, sorry for that...

 

However if U take a look on my website I have plenty of blogs and URL referrals to best practice documents that can help you on the way...

 

 

Kr,

Bart

Re: P4000 training?

Bart,

 

Is there a course available that is more advanced than HK364S?

Re: P4000 training?

as a side note.  It doesn't help with hardware training, but the full software is available to use with their software VSAs for a 60 day trial that you can just keep reinstalling (assuming you don't care about the data you put on the trial VSAs.

 

The trials are full function and there is no difference (other than performance and raid setup options) between the software VSAs and the hardware nodes.

Re: P4000 training?

Hi,

 

There were initially 2 1-day trainings available, 1 day for an overall overview and functionality and the 2nd day more advanced stuff...

Now these 2 days are bundled in a 2-day training...

 

On the hardware itself there is not that much to say about (max 10 slides), all the rest is about software and functionality inside...

 

I cannot speak for the other Lefthand trainers but I see in my trainings also the slide deck that I presented at HP Discover around Tips and Tricks for Lefthand, Blade, Virtual Connect and VMware environments...

Was a quite popular session...

 

 

Kr,

Bart

Re: P4000 training?

Hi,

 

As a certified instructor I am not allowed to distribute training material...

 

However on this page http://www.hp.com/education/courses/hk364s.html U can find a indepth overview per chapter of what is seen in the training...

And there is indeed the 60day VSA trial that U can use to try... Is 100% the same code and functions as the physical P4000 boxes...

Bart

Re: P4000 training?

Bart,

 

Do you know if any training is included in the support packages with the P4000 VSA? I thought I remembered a snippet in the support documentation regarding training, but I haven't been able to find anything. The product nunber is TA688AA.

 

Thanks.

Re: P4000 training?

Hi,

 

As far as I know there are all additional services that you will need to pay for... Never heard that the training was included inside a license...

Re: P4000 training?

The P4500 10.8TB SAS Virtualisation SAN Solution package used to include 1 Seat for the HP Training Course. Seems like they've stopped that perk on the G2 versions though.

Re: P4000 training?

You can also refer to the HP Guided troubleshooting tree for LHN.
