About this Course

Code TPU4176S
Duration 5 Days

This 5-day course provides the knowledge and skills needed to incorporate the HP NonStop servers into your TCP/IP environment and perform system configuration. Upon completion of the course you will be familiar with the products and utilities that allow you to configure, monitor, modify, and control your system.
