Read This First

Is your VMAX3 connected to Secure Remote Services (SRS) with an unrestricted access policy?  If your answer is yes, then you do not need Live Optics.  Contact your Dell EMC Systems Engineer and ask them to open a request with Presales Solution Services (PSS) to collect the VMAX3 data and generate a VMAX3 Array Report.

If your VMAX3 is not connected to SRS or your SRS connection is restricted, you must open a Service Request at MyService360 to extract the VMAX3 Metrics Files (.DCF).  This procedure must be completed before starting the Live Optics VMAX3 service.  Live Optics does not recommend extracting VMAX3 Metric Files without assistance from qualified Dell EMC Customer Engineer.
