About this Course:
This course intends to discuss the features of each MDS 9000 Series product family of switches such as 9100, 9200, 9500, and 9700 models and the Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), along with the support of service modules. The basic topics cover the content on 8-Gbps Fibre Channel, 16-Gbps Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP), multihop FCoE, upgrading the Cisco NX-OS, and the simple handling tool Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager (DCNM).
The course further explores the understanding the SAN configuration for traits including interface configuration, Cisco N-Port Virtualizer (NPV), N-Port ID Virtualization (NPIV), virtual SAN (VSAN) and domain setup, SAN zoning, and SAN extension using FCIP and Inter-VSAN Routing (IVR).
The topics included will also talk about centralized SAN services through the employment of the Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch and Cisco MDS 9250i Multiservice Fabric Switch for Cisco I/O Acceleration (IOA) and Cisco Data Mobility Manager (DMM), alongside management security and role-based access control (RBAC) training.
The end goal of the course is to help students learn about the installation, configuration and management of the Cisco MDS 9000 Series switch platform in a measurable, easily available environment.
A Cisco Certified Network Engineer makes an average salary of $77,484 per year.
Explain the MDS 9000 Series switch platform, Cisco NX-OS, and the characteristics associated with Cisco Prime DCNM.
Discuss the concepts and techniques that will help the students perform the initial software configuration of a Cisco MDS 9000 Series switch, carry the system software upgrade, and enable the licensing system.
Explain the configurations involved in building a Cisco Fibre Channel SAN fabric including interfaces, VSANs, domains, port channels, device aliases, NPV, NPIV, and zones.
Explain and perform the configuration of smart SAN fabric services on exclusive Cisco MDS 9000 Series switches along with the tools that are available.
Understand and explain the FCoE protocol and the incorporation of FCoE modules on the Cisco MDS 9500 Series Multilayer Director and Cisco MDS 9700 Series Multilayer Director as a Fibre Channel forwarder within a single-hop and multihop design.
Explain the procedure of implementing the configuration of security features on Cisco MDS 9000 Series switches in order to secure the system from unauthorized access, intrusion, and data theft, and to protect the data integrity in an enterprise SAN environment.
Understand the steps used for the fundamental FCIP configuration, high availability implementation, and accomplishing a fault tolerant SAN extension through the IVR feature.
