Course Overview:

ONTAP 9.0 Cluster Administration Training (ONTAP9ADM) with Hands-on Labs

This 3-day, instructor led ONTAP 9.0 Cluster Administration Training (ONTAP9ADM) course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration and configuration of an ONTAP cluster. You will learn to use the cluster shell and OnCommand® System Manager to manage storage and network resources. The hands-on labs allow you to practice working with ONTAP features and manage your storage and network resources using the cluster shell and OnCommand System Manager.
