Implementing Cisco Storage Networking Solutions

Categories: Cisco, Guaranteed To Run™

Duration: 5 Days

Implementing Cisco Storage Networking Solutions (ICSNS) v4.2 is a 5-day lecture/lab course that provides learners with fundamental skills in implementing and troubleshooting Cisco storage networks. Course topics include installing and bringing up the switch, configuring Virtual SANs (VSANs), domains, interfaces, and zones, implementing PortChannels, configuring management security, and basic troubleshooting. Students will also learn how to configure highly available FCIP tunnels and tune the performance of your FCIP links.

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Identify the components, services, and features of the MDS 9000 platform that can be used to improve the availability, scalability, performance, and manageability of the SAN
  • Describe how to safely install the switch hardware and perform the initial software configuration process
  • Explain how to implement the logical topology specified by a SAN design, so that connectivity between end devices can be verified
  • Describe the traffic management features associated with Intelligent Network Services for the MDS 9000 series in order to configure basic traffic management services for the SAN
  • Describe how to use FCIP to implement appropriate solutions for SAN extension
  • Identify MDS 9000 diagnostic tools in order to diagnose SAN problems and common configuration errors
