Configuring Cisco MDS 9000 Series Switches (DCMDS) v3.1

Objectives

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
