|Cisco Unified Computing System Implementation and Troubleshooting (UCS-ITS)|
This five-day, hands-on course focuses on the Cisco Unified Computing System's (UCS's) deployment, operations, and troubleshooting in a five-day boot camp format. The course teaches students the physical and logical architecture of the Cisco UCS. It teaches UCS LAN and SAN fundamentals, then in a hands-on method, teaches students the basics of UCS B-Series operations. Students will learn to install Cisco UCS fabric interconnects and blade chassis, upgrade firmware, create identity and physical resource pools, create service profiles templates, policies and deploy servers in a state-less computing environment. The student will also learn to perform day-to-day operations from monitoring logs to performing back-ups. It features an introduction to Cisco UCS Central 1.1 and UCS PowerTools 1.0. The course proceeds to teach advanced component upgrade and troubleshooting skills at all layers of the Unified Computing System, LAN, SAN, and Compute. Students are tested with challenge labs, yet provided answer keys to assist them.
