Getting Started with the Technical Resource Center

The Technical Resource Center is an intelligent content delivery platform that provides all Converged Platforms and Solutions technical content in a centralized, easy-to-access environment for customers, partners, and employees. A range of features have been provided to allow you to search and organize content.

You can search the Technical Resource Center using keywords, metadata filters, or you can use navigation tiles to progressively narrow your search.


Add search terms to find content that matches your terms. The search results display topics that contain one or more of your search terms.

To refine your search, add a filter from the Filters list.


Use filters to search for topics and documents that have been tagged to associate them with specific products and the task that you are performing. Filters allow you to quickly refine your search to meet your exact requirements. While a keyword Search returns topics containing words or phrases, the filter search is more accurate.

To refine your search, select your product and select the task that you are performing from the following list:
  • Plan: Get all the information you need (new features, bug fixes, HW specs, compatibility) to be ready to install your product.
  • Install & Upgrade: Perform your installation or upgrade. Find out about licensing and software.
  • Configure & Secure: Configure, customize, and secure the product, and go live. Learn how to connect to DellEMCfor an optimal support experience.
  • Manage & Use: Carry out day to day operations (admin functions, commands, alerts, backups, performance tuning, etc.) to keep things running smoothly.
  • Troubleshoot: Diagnose and solve operational problems.
  • Add, Install, Replace Hardware: Find instructions on how to add or replace components in your system.
  • What’s New: Find the latest information (for x period of time).
