Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS) v2.0 is an instructor-led five-day product training course that is designed as a comprehensive hands-on experience to familiarize data center systems engineers, field engineers, architects, and Cisco partners who implement storage-networking solutions with the Cisco MDS 9000 Series switch platform.
This course covers features on each of the MDS 9000 Series product family of switches including the 9100, 9200, 9500, and 9700 models and the Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and service modules supported. Fundamental topics include 8-Gbps Fibre Channel, 16-Gbps Fibre Channel, Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP), multihop FCoE, upgrading the Cisco NX-OS, and the common management tool Cisco Prime Data Center Network Manager (DCNM). The course provides comprehensive SAN configuration for features such as 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). Topics introduced also include centralized SAN services using 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), management security and role-based access control (RBAC) topics.
The goal of this course is for students to learn how to install, configure, and manage the Cisco MDS 9000 Series switch platform in a scalable, highly available environment.
