Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration (BNCA)

Course Description Schedule Course Outline
 

Course Content

This two-day course provides a technical overview of the features and benefits of NetApp ONTAP 9 data-management software. The course enables you to explain the architecture and functionality of an ONTAP cluster. You will also be introduced to basic administration, configuration and management of an ONTAP cluster. Through hands-on exercises, you will learn how to create a cluster, aggregates, storage virtual machines (SVMs), LIFs, FlexVol volumes and Snapshot copies.

Who should attend

NetApp customers, IT generalists, and academic alliance students
