EXCLUSIVE TO GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE - Accelerate your Cisco learning experience with complimentary access to the IT Skills Video On-Demand Library, Introduction to Cybersecurity digital learning course, course recordings, IT Resource Library, and digital courseware.

Classic data centers integrate many different components from many different environments, creating a very complex and decentralized approach to troubleshooting application deployment. Just as ACI allows for centralized management focused on application needs, you can troubleshoot your ACI fabric from a centralized location with the requirements of the application in mind.

The first step in any troubleshooting scenario is to fully understand your existing ACI environment. In this two day course, you have the option of configuring your own fabric as a foundation for the troubleshooting labs or discover a pre-built environment. Either path is designed to help you better understand your existing environment and is key to troubleshooting any problem.

You will use common ACI troubleshooting tools, such as Visore, API Inspector, and various show commands to identify problems that impact fabric-wide connectivity. You will use the APIC CLI to expose misconfigurations that trigger fault messages in the APIC GUI and practice applying GUI and CLI tools to various troubleshooting scenarios.

  • Discover a new ACI fabric
  • Confirm functionality of a fabric
  • Apply a basic troubleshooting methodology
  • Use CLI troubleshooting tools to discover misconfigurations
  • View faults in GUI

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.
