This course provides the skills and knowledge necessary to Install, Configure, Monitor, and Troubleshoot the Cisco 5100/5400 Enterprise Networking Compute System (ENCS). Students will learn how to deploy the ENCS as a standalone as well as in High Availability Mode. Students will then learn how to deploy and Manage NVFIS with Windows, Linux and other Cisco Functions. Students will then learn how to monitor and troubleshoot the Hardware, IOS, and NFVIS Functions. Students will also perform several labs from the Initial Configuration, High Availability, Deployment of NFVIS VMs and Monitoring and Troubleshooting Hardware, VMs, and Applications.
