Lessons

Learn how to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot Cisco Unified Computing System B-Series blade servers and C-Series rack servers in a virtualized data center environment.

In this course, you will prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification exam and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is on deploying, securing, operating, and maintaining the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and UCS C-Series Rack Servers for use in data centers. The extensively hands-on course covers configuring and managing Cisco UCS servers using unified I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, virtualizing server hardware identifiers to enable rapid recovery of server operating system images, automating UCS deployments using UCS Central Software and
Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC) Supervisor, configuring fault tolerance, implementing role-based access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco IMC.

What You'll Learn
• Install the UCS B-Series system out of the box and deploy service profiles using pooled identities and
• service profile templates
• Configure the UCS B-Series system for deployments using iSCSI and configure B- and C-Series
• systems for deployments using Fibre Channel for regular data access and booting
• Configure and implement security mechanisms such as RBAC with Organizations and Locales, LDAP
• integration, trusted points, and key rings
• Configure and implement monitoring with syslog and Call Home
• Manage UCS Manager domains with UCS Central, manage multiple C-Series servers with Cisco IMC
• Supervisor, and interact with the UCS Manager XML API

Who Needs to Attend
• System engineers and technicians who implement Cisco UCS B-Series Blade Servers and Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Servers
• Data center (LAN, SAN, Server) administrators, managers, designers, and engineers
• Familiarity with Ethernet and TCP/IP networking
• Familiarity with SANs
• Familiarity with Fibre Channel protocol
• Understanding of Cisco Enterprise Data Center Architecture
• Familiarity with hypervisor technologies (such as VMware)

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.

Everything was great, but the instructor wasted a lot of time talking about unrelated subjects (like demo-ing different programs, talking about other classes, and talks about how Excel/technology has changed) took up way too much time. The course could have been condensed or better focus would have been great
