Veritas Storage Foundation 5.1 for Solaris

In this course, you will learn to integrate, operate, and make the most of VERITAS Storage Foundation, including VERITAS Volume Manager (VxVM) and VERITAS File System (VxFS), in a UNIX environment. You will learn to install and configure VERITAS Volume Manager and how to manage disks, disk groups, and volumes by using the graphical user interface and from the command line. You will also learn system troubleshooting and recovery, online file system administration, cross-platform data sharing, and offline and off-host processing using volume snapshots and storage checkpoints.

Skills Gained

By the end of this course, you should be able to:• Install and configure VxVM and VxFS.• Configure and manage disks, disk groups, and volumes.• Administer file systems.• Perform cross-platform data sharing.• Perform basic VxVM recovery operations.• Manage the dynamic multipathing feature.• Identify types of disk failure and resolve disk failures.• Interpret plex, volume, and kernel states, and fix plex and volume failures.• Place the root disk under VxVM control.• Monitor VxVM.• Create and manage point-in-time copies using VERITAS FlashSnap.

Who Can Benefit

This course is for UNIX system or network administrators, system engineers, technical support personnel, and system integration/development staff who will be installing, operating, or integrating VERITAS Storage Foundation.
