Introduction:

Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training (BNCA) with Hands-on Labs – NetApp Training Units: 24 NTU

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.

Duration: 2 days
