Course Content

The ONTAP 9.2 Cluster Administration and Data Protection combo course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to show you how to configure and maintain a cluster. You will practice working with ONTAP features and will use the cluster shell and OnCommand® System Manager to manage storage and network resources. This course will also show you how to become proficient with NetApp ONTAP SnapMirror, SnapVault, SVM DR, SyncMirror, and NDMP technologies used to replicate, restore, and protect mission-critical data in the enterprise. Backup and restore operations are taught using the NetApp storage system CLI and the OnCommand System Manager.
