Course Overview:

Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training – Hands-on

This two-day Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA) course provides a technical overview of the features and benefits of NetApp ONTAP 9 data-management software. The Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA) 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.

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of this Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the course around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
• If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
