What you're looking for (I'm guessing) is the passwords to the service laptop on the inside of the front door. There are multiple levels of access from read only to super user and everything in between, giving the appropriate access to the system. f you do not know what you're doing, don't even ***think*** about mucking around with the service laptop. You can easily destroy you're config and lose all your data. This is not a simple box, and it's setup and configuration is completely unlike ordinary RAID arrays.

If you need to allocate storage or create new hypers, you can use symmcli commands or EMC Control Centre to do it.

If you want to configure it from scratch, you need to go to EMC. They vet the configuration to make sure it will:
- do what you want
- actually work properly

If you can afford an 8830, then you can afford a maintenance contract and to have it set up correctly. Sorry to be so blunt, but that's the truth of the matter.

What you're asking for is EMC Proprietry information. You can't have it.

It also has to be said that unless you've done some pretty serious training on the Symms (which would suggest that you are ex-EMC and you would then know the passwords), the service laptop will be absolutely meaningless to you.

But thanks for the points.

FYI - "No" is also a valid answer.
