Course Overview

This course is a combination of NFS, 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.

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
  • Who Should Attend?

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