Download the application installer and admin guide from here:


You need to browse to "Operations Manager, Protection Manager, Provisioning Manager"

Start off with the defaults and then start changing things when you have a 'feel' for how it works.  3.8 is the better version as you can have more filters on your alerts.

Hope this helps

Really just pretty straightforward -- go through the docs (and the sizing Technical Report) and you should be good.

Discovering arrays in particular is pretty easy.
