Course Details

Overview

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

Objectives

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
  • Troubleshoot SAN connectivity and performance issues
