The Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration (BNCA) provides you knowledge on how to configure the basic technologies of the NetApp Data ONTAP® operating system—clustered Data ONTAP and Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode. Through lectures and hands- on exercises, learn how to create aggregates, storage virtual machines (SVMs), virtual interfaces(VIFs), FlexVol® volumes, qtrees, Snapshot® copies, and more.

NOTE: The term “storage virtual machine (SVM)” is equivalent to the term “virtual server (Vserver)”.

Upon completion of this course, students are able to:

  • Explain features of the Data ONTAP operating system
  • Use the CLI and OnCommand System Manager to identify storage components
  • Configure storage systems and storage virtual machines (SVMs) for NAS and SAN client access
  • Create FlexVol volumes, qtrees, and LUNs
  • Manage Snapshot copies and FlexClone software
  • Manage volume move and storage efficiency

Course Outline


Module 1 Getting Started with Data ONTAP

  • List basic storage concepts such as aggregates, RAID groups, volumes, qtrees, and LUNs
  • Describe Data ONTAP features such as Snapshot copies, unified storage, and storage efficiency Describe the similarities and differences between the 7-Mode and clustered Data ONTAP operating systems Use the CLI and GUI for administrative purposes

Module 2 Hardware Basics

  • Describe the NetApp storage system hardware platforms and the types of disks that they support Describe the hardware components of NetApp storage controllers
  • Use OnCommand System Manager or the CLI to identify hardware components in Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode and the clustered Data ONTAP operating system

Module 3 Creating and Managing Aggregates

  • Describe aggregates and RAID groups
  • Create aggregates in Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode Create aggregates in the clustered Data ONTAP operating system
  • Manage aggregates

Module 4 Managing NAS Client Access

  • Configure NAS client access in Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode
  • Configure data storage virtual machines (SVMs*) for NAS client access in clustered Data ONTAP
  • Create FlexVol volumes and qtrees

Module 5 Managing SAN Client Connections

  • Describe SAN protocol implementation in Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode and the clustered Data ONTAP operating system
  • Use OnCommand System Manager to create iSCSI- attached LUNs
  • Use NetApp SnapDrive for Windows to create and format iSCSI-attached LUNs
  • Access and manage a LUN from a Windows host

Module 6 Managing Volumes

  • Explain the relationship between space guarantees, volumes, and aggregates
  • Define thin provisioning and explain how it is used Define deduplication and describe the benefits that it provides
  • Use OnCommand System Manager to set quotas

Module 7 Managing Snapshot Copies

  • Define the function of Snapshot copies
  • Create and delete a Snapshot copy
  • Create Snapshot policies in the clustered Data ONTAP operating system
  • Restore a volume from a Snapshot copy
  • Create FlexClone volume clones that are backed by Snapshot copies

Module 8 Steps to Certification

  • Review/ Recall the steps to NetApp Certification
