Veritas InfoScale Storage 7.0 for UNIX: Administration
This five day, instructor-led, hands-on class covers how to use InfoScale Storage to manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using a variety of InfoScale Storage user interfaces including the Veritas InfoScale Operations Manager (VIOM) Web console. You learn the basics of online file system administration and recovery from disk failures. In addition, you learn about data replication using Veritas File Replicator and Veritas Volume Replicator. You also learn how to configure Veritas Cluster Volume Manager and Veritas Cluster File System.
Hands-On This course includes practical lab exercises that enable you to test your new skills and begin to transfer those skills into your working environment.
AudienceThis course is for Linux system administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, network/SAN administrators, and systems integration/development staff, who will be installing, operating, or integrating InfoScale Storage.
Knowledge of and hands-on experience with Linux systems administration.
