Description

The Veritas InfoScale Availability 7.0 for Linux: Administration course is designed for the IT professional tasked with installing, configuring, and maintaining Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) clusters.


This five day, instructor-led, hands-on class covers how to use InfoScale Availability 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 can deploy InfoScale Availability in a lab environment to implement a sample cluster design.

Objectives

By the completion of this course, you will be able to:



  • Describe how clustering is used to implement high availability in the data center environment.

  • Describe VCS and cluster communication mechanisms.

  • Create a cluster, and 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.

  • Describe I/O fencing operations, and its implementation.

  • Configure VCS to manage an Oracle database and other applications.

  • Configure a global cluster environment, including remote clusters, global heartbeats, and global service groups.

  • Configure notification and failover behavior in a global cluster.

Participants

This course is for Linux system administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, network/SAN administrators, and systems integration/development staff, who will be installing, operating, or integrating InfoScale Availability.

Prerequisite(s)

Knowledge of and hands-on experience with Linux systems administration
