About this course

Course code TPHH674S
Duration 5 Days

This course prepares you to administer and manage the HP NonStop NS-2000/NS-2200 server. Topics include how to start, monitor, and shut down your system and its subsystems and how to identify and resolve common problems. Learn how to make alterations to the server configuration and to fall back from changes made to a previous configuration. Where resolution is unsuccessful, you will be able to escalate to the appropriate service provider with suitable supporting information. This five-day course is 70 percent lecture and 30 percent hands-on labs using HP servers.
