Course Description

The ONTAP Cluster Administration (ONTAP 9.6) (ONTAP9ADM) Training is an instructor-led training course that gives hands-on experience and lecture on the basic administration jobs of an ONTAP 9.6 cluster.

You use the ONTAP System Manager and cluster shell for managing storage and network resources. ONTAP Cluster Administration Training is an intermediate course in a complete learning path for NetApp partners, NetApp employees, and NetApp customers.

This course mainly trained the learners with the 2 days ONTAP Data Protection course.  The specialized course at Microtek Learning is a division of the NetApp Certified Data Administrator, ONTAP (NCDA) Certifications.

NOTE: In ONTAP 9.7, NetApp has introduced enhancements in networking and security protocols, storage efficiency, REST API, data protection and encryption, hardware support, and so on. Fast Lane has included the current ONTAP 9.6 Administration training class to make certain you will get the new and up-to-date training available.
