I have never touched NetApp stuff before. I've just inherited a small VMware cluster that has a Dell Equalogic NAS, and a DS4243 that is supposed to be the new datastore. The DS4243 came with a poster-sized "quick start", but it doesn't tell me how to access it.
I know there's a bunch of free courses in NetApp U, but which ones should I watch in which order to get moving on this?

Two things that have been recommended include:
Installation and Service Guide:
And the NetApp DS4243 Planning and Implementation course. I do not know if this is something that you can access:
I am trying to find other information for you but hope this can help.

If there isn't a controller to go with that disk shelf, then your sinking feeling is correct !
(Though I find it hard to believe they could have purchased a disk shelf wo a controller.)
There's an 'Introduction to NetApp Products' web based course on learning center you may wish to view...
I hope this response has been helpful to you.
