NOTE: This course has replaced Clustered Data ONTAP 8.2 Administration (DCADM). It combines the 3-day Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 Administration (NA-D8CADM) and the 2-day NetApp Data Protection Administration (NA-DATAPROT).

This course uses lecture and hands-on exercises to teach basic administration of clustered Data ONTAP. In this course, you will configure and manage a Data ONTAP cluster. You will practice working with Data ONTAP features and managing your storage systems with the CLI and UI interfaces. This course also discusses network management fundamentals, basic protocols that are used to access your data, and how to protect, manage, and monitor your clustered storage environment. Become proficient with Data ONTAP Snapshot, SnapRestore, SnapMirror, SnapVault, Open Systems SnapVault, and NDMP technologies used to replicate and restore mission-critical data in the enterprise. Backup and restore operations are taught using the NetApp storage system command line and OnCommand System Manager. The course also provides an overview of the Data ONTAP 8.3 MetroCluster solution. Data ONTAP 7-Mode administrators will benefit from comparisons to earlier Data ONTAP versions to help them master the basics of clustered Data ONTAP.

  • Identify the components of a Data ONTAP storage environment
  • Install and set up a Data ONTAP cluster
  • Perform basic administration on a storage system
  • Configure physical and logical storage
