    4 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Storage Networking

    Course Details


    The Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS) v3.0 course shows you how to implement, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco¬ģ MDS 9000 Series Switches, to build highly available, scalable storage networks. Through expert instruction and extensive hands-on practice, you will learn how to deploy and use capabilities such as virtual storage area networks (VSANs), Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), N-Port Virtualization (NPV) fabric security, zoning, automation with NX-API, Slow Drain Analysis, Fibre Channel over TCP/IP (FCIP) tunnels, and more. You will learn how to configure and implement platform features and learn troubleshooting techniques pertaining to Fibre Channel (FC) domains, firmware upgrades, zones, and zone mergers.


    Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

    • Discover and describe the Cisco Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) platform of multilayer switches and directors. Describe the MDS hardware, NX-OS operating system, Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) management software, and key architectures of the platform, such as FC and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE)
    • Describe key product features of the MDS platform, including VSANs, RBAC, NPV, port channels, zoning, device aliases, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), and fabric security
    • Configure and implement the Cisco MDS switches and platform features, such has initial configuration, building a fabric, building a SAN extension, and configuring inter-VSAN routing for that purpose
    • Configure FCIP tunnels
    • Resolve issues and troubleshoot FC domains, zones and zone merges, and switch boot and firmware upgrades
