Table of contents


In this training you will learn how to configure and manage Netapp ONTAP clusters, and work from the command-line only. Many day to day administrative tasks will be dealt with, theoretically and practically. There will be no fiddling around. Every module has the same layout: topic discussion, practical example(s), review. There will be reference to the exam-topics as well, to help you study for the NCDA-exam. 
1. Overview           
    – What is a cluster
    – What is physical storage and what is logical storage
    – What is an SVM
    – Which protocols are supported
    – Which configurations are available                                  
2. lab setup
    – Setting up a two node cluster in ESXi
     ( in module 13 there is a vmware workstation/fusion setup)
3. shells 
     – cluster shell
     – node shell
     – system shell
4. licensing
     – add licenses
     – clean up licencses
5. physical storage

6. Logical storage
    – flexible volumes
7. Networking 
    – ports and logical interfaces
    – interface groups

You will learn

✓ Work with NetApp’s ONTAP clusters using the command-line interface.
✓ Perform day-do-day administration tasks and tackle more advanced challenges.
✓ How ONTAP functions.
✓ Create aggregates, manage aggregates. Create volumes, manage volumes.
✓ Configure Storage Efficiency techniques like deduplication, compression and compaction.
✓ Setup cluster peering, SVM peering and snapmirror relationships.
✓ Understand the concepts of a Metro-Cluster.
✓ All in all, it is going to be helpful in preparing for the NCDA exam.


• Students should have basic computer knowledge, basic network knowledge and basic storage knowledge.

• This training is aimed at ONTAP administrators and future ONTAP administrators.
Netapp Trainer/Consultant
I have been a Netapp trainer/consultant for more than fifteen years. I train customers, partners and Netapp engineers on a regular basis. I am based in the Netherlands. 
Since I am also a Linux and UNIX fan, I like to work on the command-line. There is nothing wrong with GUI’s or BUI’s, but to my mind, the CLI gives you more direct control. So I always urge my students to not only work in a graphical interface.
I am certified in Netapp, UNIX, Linux.
