DCIT v6.2 - Troubleshooting Cisco® Data Center Infrastructure **Part of the CCNP Data Center certification track** Course Outline

The Troubleshooting Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCIT) 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 troubleshooting of LAN, SAN, Cisco Data Center Unified Fabric, Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS), and Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI).

The course provides rich, hands-on experience in resolving problems on Cisco MDS switches, Cisco Nexus switches, Cisco fabric extenders (FEXs), Cisco UCS, and Cisco ACI.

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

Troubleshoot Layer 2 technologies, such as STP, port channels, vPC, Cisco FabricPath, and FEX
Troubleshoot first-hop redundancy, routing, and CFS in the data center
Troubleshoot virtualization solutions, such as OTV, VRF, and VXLAN
Troubleshoot storage area networks, including Fibre Channel, FCoE, zoning, NPV, and NPIV
Troubleshoot data center unified computing

The knowledge, skills, and attitudes that a learner is expected to have before attending this course are as follows:
Introducing Cisco Data Center Networking (DCICN) v6.0
Introducing Cisco Data Center Technologies (DCICT) v6.0
Implementing Cisco Data Center Infrastructure (DCII) v6.0
Implementing Cisco Data Center Virtualization and Automation (DCVAI) v6.0
Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI) v6.0
