In this workshop course, you learn how to connect Windows® and Linux® hosts via Fibre Channel (FC) and iSCSI protocols to NetApp® SANs.

Prerequisites

  • Certification as a NetApp Data Management Administrator
  • Completion of the following courses:
    • SAN Fundamentals on Data ONTAP WBT
    • "NetApp Portfolio: Exploring SAN Architectures and Configurations (SANARCH)"
    • Either "Data ONTAP 7-Mode Administration (D7ADM)" or Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 Administration or "Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 Administration and Data Protection (CDOTDP)"

Delegates will learn how to

By the end of this course you should be able to:
  • Define and describe SANs that use FC, FCoE, and iSCSI protocols
  • Configure Windows Server 2012, Red Hat® 6.4, and Data ONTAP® systems for iSCSI connectivity
  • Configure Windows Server 2012, Red Hat 6.4, and Data ONTAP systems for FC and FCoE connectivity
  • Use FC and iSCSI protocols to create and access LUNs from Windows Server 2012 and Red Hat 6.4 systems
  • Install and use SnapDrive® for Windows and SnapDrive for Linux software to create LUNs and Snapshot™ LUNs, to restore LUNs from Snapshot copies, and to remove LUNs
  • Size, clone, back up, and recover LUNs on Windows Server 2012 and Red Hat 6.4 systems
