Netapp ONTAP Command-line Administration
What you'll learn
- Work with NetApp's ONTAP clusters using the command-line interface.
- Perform day-do-day administration tasks and tackle more advanced challenges.
- How ONTAP functions.
- Create aggregates, manage aggregates. Create volumes, manage volumes.
- Configure Storage Efficiency techniques like deduplication, compression and compaction.
- Setup cluster peering, SVM peering and snapmirror relationships.
- Understand the concepts of a Metro-Cluster.
- All in all, it is going to be helpful in preparing for the NCDA exam.
- Students should have basic computer knowledge, basic network knowledge and basic storage knowledge.
In this training you will learn how to configure and manage Netapp ONTAP clusters, and work from the command-line only. Many day to day administrative tasks will be dealt with, theoretically and practically. There will be no fiddling around. Every module has the same layout: topic discussion, practical example(s), review. There will be reference to the exam-topics as well, to help you study for the NCDA-exam.

Who this course is for:
- This training is aimed at ONTAP administrators and future ONTAP administrators.
I have been a Netapp trainer/consultant for more than fifteen years. I train customers, partners and Netapp engineers on a regular basis. I am based in the Netherlands.
Since I am also a Linux and UNIX fan, I like to work on the command-line. There is nothing wrong with GUI's or BUI's, but to my mind, the CLI gives you more direct control. So I always urge my students to not only work in a graphical interface.
I am certified in Netapp, UNIX, Linux.
