Duration: 5 Days (40 Hours)
Veritas High Availability Fundamentals with VSF 6.0 and VCS 6.0 for Unix Course Overview:
The Symantec High Availability Fundamentals with Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0 and Veritas Cluster Server 6.0 for UNIX course provides comprehensive training on managing storage in a high availability environment, performing cluster management, and conducting basic file system administration.
This instructor-led, hands-on class spans over five days and covers the utilization of Veritas high availability technology to meet data availability objectives within your operations. The course focuses on the implementation of Veritas Cluster Server and Veritas Storage Foundation, which includes Veritas Volume Manager and Veritas File System.
During the course, participants will learn key concepts and techniques for configuring and managing storage resources in a high availability environment. They will gain hands-on experience in deploying Veritas Cluster Server and Veritas Storage Foundation to achieve enhanced data availability and resilience. Additionally, participants will acquire skills in basic file system administration and cluster management tasks.
By the end of the course, participants will have a solid understanding of Veritas high availability solutions, enabling them to effectively implement and manage these technologies to meet their organization’s data availability goals.
This course is for UNIX system or network administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, and system integration/development staff who will be installing, operating, or integrating Veritas Storage Foundation and Veritas Cluster Server.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Install and configure Veritas Storage Foundation High Availability.
- Configure and manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using Veritas Volume Manager.
- Perform online file system administration by using Veritas File System tools and commands.
- Identify types of disk failure and resolve disk failures.
- Manage cluster services with Veritas Cluster Server and perform troubleshooting techniques.
- Describe cluster communications, identify faults, and configure failover behavior.
