About this Course

This course is a combination of ONTAP NFS Administration (NFSAD), SMB (CIFS), and performance analysis courses into a single, in-depth one-week course. It provides the knowledge and skills that you need to administer SMB version 1.x to 3.x and NFS versions 3, 4, and 4.1 in a clustered Data ONTAP® operating system. You also learn the knowledge and skills that you need to collect and analyze system performance data from NetApp storage systems that are running ONTAP 9.

Who should attend

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