DCUCI v6.0 - Implementing Cisco® Data Center Unified Computing **Part of the CCNP Data Center certification track** Course Outline

 (5 days)
Version 6.0

Overview
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 professionallevel
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
centers. 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 rolebased
access control (RBAC), backing up and restoring system configurations, and using the monitoring and troubleshooting tools in Cisco UCS Manager and Cisco IMC.

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 access 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
