Overview

In this course, you will learn to integrate, operate, and make the most of Veritas Storage Foundation, including Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM) and Veritas File System (VxFS), in a UNIX environment. You will learn to install and configure Veritas Volume Manager and how to manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using the graphical user interface and from the command line. You also learn about recovery from disk failures, online file system administration, remote mirroring across sites, offline and off-host processing using volume snapshots and storage checkpoints, and dynamic storage tiering. This course is 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.

Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:

  •  Install and configure Veritas Storage Foundation.
  • Configure and manage disks, disk groups, and volumes.
  • Administer file systems.
  • Identify types of disk failure and resolve disk failures.
  • Install Storage Foundation Manager and manage multiple Storage Foundation servers.
  • Monitor VxVM and change volume layouts to improve performance.
  • Manage the dynamic multipathing feature.
  • Create and manage point-in-time copies for off-host and on-host processing.
  • Manage LUN snapshots.
  • Remotely mirror your data across different sites.
  • Use dynamic storage tiering for optimal storage allocation.
  • Place the boot disk under VxVM control.
