In the Veritas Storage Foundation 6.0 for UNIX: Administration course, you learn to integrate, operate, and make the most of Veritas Storage Foundation (SF), including Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) and Veritas File System (VxFS), in a UNIX environment.

You learn to install and configure Veritas Storage Foundation and to manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using a variety of SF user interfaces, including the Veritas Operations Manager (VOM) Web console. You also learn about recovery from disk failures, online file system administration, including data compression and deduplication, remote mirroring across sites, offline and off-host processing using volume snapshots and storage checkpoints, and dynamic storage tiering using the SmartTier feature.

This course is specially design for UNIX system or network administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, and system integration/development staff who will be installing, operating, or integrating Veritas Storage Foundation

  • Knowledge of UNIX system administration

This course is available in the following delivery methods:

  • Instructor-led training (ILT) – 5 days
  • Virtual Academy (VA) – 5 days

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to :

  • Install and configure Veritas Storage Foundation.
  • Configure and manage disks, disk groups, and volumes.
  • Administer file systems.
  • Install Veritas Operations Manager and manage multiple Storage Foundation servers.
  • Monitor VxVM tasks and change volume layouts to improve performance.
  • Manage the dynamic multipathing feature.
  • Identify types of disk failure and resolve disk failures.
  • Create and manage point-in-time copies for off-host and on-host processing.
  • Optimize storage utilization using advanced features, such as file system data compression and file system deduplication.
  • Remotely mirror your data across different sites.
  • Use the SmartTier feature for optimal storage allocation.
  • Replicate a Veritas File System using the Veritas File Replicator option on a Linux platform.
