(BNCA) Basic NetApp Configuration and Administration Training

Level: Foundation

Learn 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)”.

Key Features of this BNCA Training:

  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • Learning Tree end-of-course exam included

You Will Learn How 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
