The Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS) v3.6 course teaches you to implement, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco® MDS 9000 Series Switches to build highly available, scalable storage networks. Through expert instruction and extensive hands-on practice, you will learn how to deploy and utilize capabilities such as Virtual Storage Area Networks (VSANs), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), N-Port Virtualization (NPV) fabric security, zoning, automation with NX-API, Slow Drain Analysis, SAN analytics, Fibre Channel over TCP/IP (FCIP) tunnels, and more. You will learn how to configure and implement platform features and learn troubleshooting techniques pertaining to Fibre Channel (FC) domains, firmware upgrades, zones, and zone mergers. This course helps you prepare to take the 300-625 Implementing Cisco Storage Area Networking (DCSAN) exam, which leads to CCNP Data Center and the Certified Specialist – Data Center SAN Implementation certifications. This course will help you:
  • Learn how to deploy and troubleshoot the Cisco Nexus® 9000 Series Switches to support performance, resiliency, scalability, and enhanced operations for data centers
  • Gain knowledge and skills through Cisco’s unique combination of lessons and hands-on practice using enterprise-grade Cisco learning technologies, data center equipment, and software
  • Succeed in today’s demanding data center operations roles
  • Earn 40 CE credits toward recertification
