CODE: ZL1_TS612

LENGTH: 5 day(s)

PRICE: Ft682 000,00

Description

This course is the first of two five-day instructor-led courses for implementing, configuring and administering IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. In hands-on practice, you install the Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 server, backup-archive client, the Tivoli Integrated Portal, and Administration Center. After the product is installed, you configure the environment. You create and configure storage pool hierarchies and define policies to manage the flow of data from disk to disk or tape media. Lab exercises guide you through the steps to back up, restore, archive and retrieve client data. You also create schedules to run administrative and client processes and maintain your Tivoli Storage Manager environment to ensure recoverability. The Student Exercises are available for Windows and AIX (see course TSX12G). The lecture material covers all supported Intel and UNIX platforms.

Students who need advanced administration skills should also take course IBM Tivoli Storage Manager 6.3 Advanced Administration, Tuning, and Troubleshooting (TS622)
