Enrolling for software downloads Before you can access updated software for the storage system, you must enroll the storage system for software downloads. We recommend that you do this registration now. If you did this as the last step in the initialization utility, you can skip this section. You will need the same storage-system hardware product ID/serial number (TLA S/N) that you used to initialize the storage system. If you purchased the storage system directly from EMC Corporation, register it on the EMC Online Support website . 1. Log in to EMC Online Support . 2. From the Home page in the navigator pane, search for the link to register VNX system. 3. Enter the required information and click Submit . If you did not purchase your storage system directly from EMC Corporation, please contact your vendor for instructions on how to enroll the storage system for software downloads. 2 Initializing and registering your VNX

Initializing the storage system After the storage system is fully powered up for the first time, use the Unisphere Storage System Initialization Utility to initialize the storage system. Initialization sets the network parameters for storage-system management and creates a management user account for the storage system so you can manage it over the LAN. Before you start To complete this procedure, you will need: The management port and login information in the Plan network connections section of the system install guide that shipped with your system. This information includes: z A static IP address for each storage processor in the system (for example, ). z The IPv6 global prefix and gateway for each SP if your network supports the IPv6 Internet Protocol and you want to manually configure IPv6 for the management ports. z The subnet mask of the LAN to which the system is connected. z The default gateway address of the LAN to which the system is connected.
