Course Overview

Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS) v1.0 is a five-day lecture and lab course that provides participants with fundamental skills in configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series switches. Course topics include setting up the switch, configuring interfaces, virtual SANs (VSANs), domains, zones, port channels, management security, and Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) tunnels.

Program Objectives

• Identify the components, services, and features of the Cisco MDS 9000 Series switch platform that can be used to improve the availability, scalability, performance, and manageability of the SAN

• Describe how to install and configure the Cisco MDS 9000 switch and perform the initial software configuration process

• Explain how to implement the logical topology that is specified by a SAN design, so that connectivity between end devices can be verified

• Describe the traffic management features associated with Intelligent Network Services for the Cisco MDS 9000 switches in order to configure basic traffic management services for the SAN

• Describe how to configure Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), modules on Cisco MDS 9500 Series switches

• Explain how to implement security so that management access is secure, and that only trusted devices are allowed to connect to the fabric.

• Describe how to use FCIP to implement appropriate solutions for SAN extension solutions
