This course provides the student with the foundation and basic skills necessary to install and configure both host and target DSM/SCM systems. Additionally, they will learn the basic skills necessary to use the five DSM/SCM block mode interfaces, and two GUI interfaces. This four-day course is  50 percent lecture and 50 percent hands-on labs using the DSM/SCM environment.
