Course Contents

This 5-day, instructor-led course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach the basic administration tasks of an ONTAP 9.5 cluster. You use the cluster shell and OnCommand System Manager to manage storage and network resources. Also describes some of the key concepts and techniques for protecting data in NetApp ONTAP systems. You learn about the different data protection solutions that are integrated into ONTAP software, including the SyncMirror, SnapMirror, storage virtual machine (SVM) disaster recovery, and SnapVault solutions.

The course also provides an overview of ONTAP MetroCluster configuration, NDMP, and cloud-based data protection with NetApp Cloud Volumes ONTAP and NetApp Data Availability Services. You also learn about the tools for managing ONTAP

data protection features. In the hands-on exercises, you use NetApp OnCommand System Manager and the CLI to complete key data protection tasks.
