Overview

The Veritas Cluster Server 5.1 for Windows: Administration course is designed for the IT professional responsible for installing, configuring, and maintaining VCS clusters. This five-day, instructor-led, hands-on class covers how to use Veritas Cluster Server to manage applications in a high availability environment. After gaining the fundamental skills that are needed to manage a highly available application in a cluster, you will deploy VCS in a lab environment to implement a sample cluster design.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Manage highly available application services by using VCS.
  • Install VCS and create a cluster.
  • Configure service groups and resources.
  • Implement and verify failover and failback capability for application, storage, and network services.
  • Configure and optimize cluster behavior.
  • Protect data in a shared storage environment.
  • Configure VCS to manage SQL Server, Exchange Server, and other applications.
  • Analyze, troubleshoot, and correct cluster problems.
  • Configure service group dependencies and failover policies.
