Course Content

Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI) v6.0 is a five-day instructor-led course that is designed to help students prepare for the Cisco CCNP Data Center certification and for professional-level data center roles. The focus of this skills-building course is on deploying, securing, operating, and maintaining the Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) and UCS C-Series Rack Servers for use in data center. The extensively-hands on course covers configuring, and managing Cisco UCS servers using unified I/O networking for LAN and SAN connectivity, virtualizing server hardware identifiers to enable rapid recovery of server operating system images, automating UCS deployments using UCS Central Software and Cisco Integrated Management Controller (IMC) Supervisor, configuring fault tolerance, implementing, role-based access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco IMC

Course Objectives

Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Install the UCS-B Series system out of the box and deploy service profiles using pooled identities and service profile templates
  • Configure the UCS-B Series system for deployments using iSCSI and configure B- and C-series systems for deployments using Fibre Channel for regular data accessing and booting
  • Configure and implement security mechanisms such as RBAC with Organizations and Locales, LDAP integration, trusted points, and key rings
  • Configure and implement monitoring with SysLog and Call Home
  • Manage UCS Manager domains with UCS Central, manage multiple C-Series servers with Cisco IMC Supervisor, and interact with the UCS Manager XML API
