Description

This course combines CIFS, NFS, and performance analysis topics into a single, in-depth one-week course. It provides the knowledge and skills that you need to administer CIFS version 1.x to 2.x and NFS versions 3, 4, and 4.1 in a clustered Data ONTAP® operating system. You also learn the skills you need to collect and analyze performance data from NetApp® storage systems.

Who should attend

Professionals who manage NetApp storage systems and need a deeper understanding of protocols and performance in a clustered Data ONTAP environment.
