This course is designed to provide the system support engineer (SSE) with the skills necessary to install, configure, and perform first-line maintenance of the SGI® storage area networks (SAN) solution.
The course introduces the 1-, 2- 4- and 8-Gb/s Brocade® SilkWorm® series family of Fibre Channel switches and switch features such as zoning, trunking, and fabric monitors. SGI supported SAN topologies are also addressed.
At course completion, the student will be able to install and configure Fibre Channel switches, connect storage systems and servers, perform fabric route analysis and tuning, isolate SAN failures to the field-replaceable unit (FRU) level in a heterogeneous environment, and perform routine maintenance tasks using a command line interface and graphical user interface.
