Lessons

The course covers all of the tasks Nutanix administrators perform, including configuring and maintaining a Nutanix environment. It also introduces basic Nutanix troubleshooting tools, offers tips for solving common problems and provides guidelines for escalating problems to Nutanix support.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
After introducing the basic concepts of the Enterprise Cloud Platform, participants will understand how to rack a Nutanix block, install and configure a cluster, and use different interfaces to manage a cluster.

The program then delves into the details of managing VMs in Acropolis, monitoring cluster health and performance, protecting data and optimizing cluster capacity, and performing in-place hypervisor conversion. Various failure scenarios in data centers are presented and participants will learn how to implement strategies to safeguard their data.

Participants will also understand how to use Nutanix's Prism interface to monitor and manage multiple activities across clusters, review and analyze resource needs, and assess future resource requirements.

Module 12: Prism Central

 The module describes the multiple capabilities of Prism Central, including monitoring and managing multiple activities across a set of clusters.

Module 13: Maintaining the Nutanix Cluster

 This module introduces Nutanix Cluster Check (NCC), a framework of scripts that helps diagnose cluster health.

Module 14: Life Cycle Operations

 The final module provides an overview of essential lifecycle operations, including starting/stopping a Nutanix cluster, starting/shutting down a cluster node and searching/updating inventory.

Participants will also learn how to expand a cluster, manage licenses and upgrade software and firmware.

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
