Description

This course is a combination of ONTAP NFS Administration (NFSAD), SMB (CIFS), and performance analysis courses into a single, in-depth one-week course. It provides the knowledge and skills that you need to administer SMB version 1.x to 3.x and NFS versions 3, 4, and 4.1 in a clustered Data ONTAP® operating system. You also learn the knowledge and skills that you need to collect and analyze system performance data from NetApp storage systems that are running ONTAP 9.

Who should attend

Professionals who manage NetApp storage systems and need a deeper understanding of protocols and performance in a clustered Data ONTAP environment.

Course Objectives

  • Define and describe NFS protocol versions
  • Configure clustered ONTAP 9 for NFSv3,NFSv4,and NFSv4.1 with parallel NFS (pNFS)
  • Configure Kerberos in a Linux and NetApp ONTAP 9 environment using Windows Active Directory authentication
  • Discuss performance management and troubleshooting for NetApp storage systems and clients
  • Explain the CIFS and SMB protocol
  • Demonstrate the Windows PowerShell CLI
  • Configure SMB features using ONTAP 9 software
  • Create and manage SMB shares and sessions
  • Secure SMB sessions
  • Configure ONTAP for multiprotocol data access
  • Discuss SMB advanced topics, such as opportunistic locks (oplocks), BranchCache, auditing, group policy, automatic home shares, symbolic links (symlinks), and widelinks
  • Understand how a storage system running ONTAP 9 functions
  • Identify the commands and tools to use to collect and monitor storage system performance
  • Interpret performance data and identify hindrances to storage system performance
  • Use system commands and features to enhance storage system performance and efficiency
