Description

Learn to implement Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 on clustered Data ONTAP storage. This solution-based course focuses on Windows Server Failover Clustering, Microsoft SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups, SnapDrive for Windows, and SnapManager for SQL Server. In this course, you will learn how to size and prepare clustered Data ONTAP storage virtual machines (also known as Vservers), install and configure SnapDrive for Windows, install and initialize SnapManager for SQL Server, move SQL databases to NetApp storage, backup and restore SQL databases, create Availability Groups, and troubleshoot common misconfigurations. By the end of this course, you will be able to confidently implement SQL Server 2012 on clustered Data ONTAP storage.

Who should attend

This training is for those who design and deploy NetApp storage systems in a Microsoft SQL Server environment.

 

Course Objectives

By the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the features of Windows Server 2012, Microsoft SQL Server 2012, and the clustered Data ONTAP operating system
  • Create and manage clustered Data ONTAP storage virtual machines (SVMs), create and manage logical interfaces (LIFs), data LIFs, and FlexVol volumes
  • Enable, configure, and manage a Windows Server 2012 failover cluster
  • Install and configure SnapDrive for Windows 2012, establish iSCSI sessions, and create LUNs
  • Install and configure SnapManager for SQL Server, migrate, back up, restore, and clone SQL Server databases
  • Implement the SQL Server AlwaysOn Availability Groups feature on clustered Data ONTAP
 

Topics Covered

  • Configure iSCSI sessions
  • Use SnapDrive on a Windows host to create and connect to LUNs on the storage system

Module 5 Implementing Availability Groups with SnapManager for SQL Server

  • Enable the AlwaysOn Availability Groups feature
  • Use SnapManager for SQL Server (SMSQL) to move databases
  • Use SMSQL to back up databases
  • Use the New Availability Groups Wizard to create availability groups and join secondary replica SQL Server instances

Module 6 Cloning SQL Server Databases with SnapManager for SQL Server

  • Describe database cloning
  • Clone backup sets
  • Clone a production database
  • Clone a database on a SnapMirror destination volume
  • Delete a cloned database
