The SAN Guy

I’ve been in IT for over 17 years now, and have a few tricks up my sleeve after all this time.  My most recent job transition in this field has been to a full time SAN Administrator.  It’s a job function I’ve performed for 8+ years, but for the past four years it’s been my exclusive responsibility.

I work for a global company with EMC SAN hardware deployed in many countries around the globe.  I’m responsible for the management and administration of all of this hardware, primarily Clariion and Celerra hardware.  Because EMC doesn’t always provide all of the tools you need, sometimes administrators like us have to get a bit creative to get the job done. 😉

I’ll be posting some tips and tricks I’ve picked up about EMC SAN administration here, as well as some simple, “work smarter not harder” tips for every day tasks, and maybe just some general info as well.

  1. Hi Sanguy,

    I’ve bash script made ready for capturing disk faults on VMAX. This file will capture disk faults details and finally put into .csv format. There is another script to convert csv2html

    How can I publish about it on this page?


    1. I added the ability to create a guest post, it’s a link at the top of the page. Note that I will retain editorial control and must approve anything submitted before it will appear on the site. Feel free to post any content you’d like me to share. I will credit the person submitting the article within the article with whatever information is included in the guest post submission.

  2. MK – I don’t currently have guest publishing enabled on this site. It’s something I’d certainly consider, I’d just need to research the requirements. I’m not going to grant admin access to my site to just anyone. Feel free to email me directly at sescreen-thesanguy at yahoo dot com to discuss it further.
