After taking this course, you should be able to:
• Discover and describe the Cisco Multilayer Director Switch (MDS) platform of multilayer switches and directors. Describe the MDS hardware, NX-OS operating system, Data Center Network Manager (DCNM) management software, and key architectures of the platform, such as FC and Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE);
• Describe key product features of the MDS platform, including VSANs, RBAC, NPV, port channels, zoning, device aliases, inter-VSAN routing (IVR), and fabric security;
• Configure and implement the Cisco MDS switches and platform features, such has initial configuration, building a fabric, building a SAN extension, and configuring inter-VSAN routing for that purpose;
• Configure FCIP tunnels;
• Resolve issues and troubleshoot FC domains, zones and zone merges, and switch boot and firmware upgrades.

Público Alvo

Technical and professionals who implement, configure, support and manage data center SAN environments using Cisco MDS 9000 Switches.

This course also helps prepare student to take the Implementing Cisco Storage Area Networking (300-625 DCSAN) exam, which is part of the new CCNP® Data Center.


To fully benefit from this course, you should have the following knowledge and skills:
• Basic understanding of data storage hardware components and protocols, including Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and Fibre Channel;
• Basic understanding of network protocols, including Ethernet and IP;
• Basic routing and switching knowledge.

These are the recommended Cisco courses that may help you meet these prerequisites:
• DCFNDU - Understanding Cisco Data Center Foundations;
• DCMDSO - Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches Overview;
• DCIMDS - Introducing Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches.
