Course Overview


The Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Administration 5.10 course enables administrators (system, network, and storage) to

successfully configure and manage Nutanix in the datacenter.

The course covers many of the tasks Nutanix administrators perform through the use of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and

command line interfaces (CLIs). It also provides insight into the fail-over and self-healing capabilities, offers tips for solving

common problems and provides guidelines for collecting information when interacting with Nutanix support.

Course Schedule


Target Audience


The primary audience for the course includes administrators, architects, and business leaders who

manage Nutanix clusters in the datacenter and anyone who is seeking the Nutanix Certified Professional (NCP) certification.

The secondary audience includes managers and technical staff seeking information to drive purchase decisions.

Course Content


1: Introduction

The section describes the Nutanix HCI solution, walks you through the components of the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud, and explains the relationship between physical and logical cluster components.

2: Managing the Nutanix Cluster

In this section you will use the Prism console to monitor a cluster, configure a cluster using various interfaces, use the REST API

Explorer to manage the cluster, and learn how to deploy Nutanix-specific PowerShell cmdlets.

3: Securing the Nutanix Cluster

This section shows how to secure a Nutanix cluster through user authentication, SSL certificate installation, and cluster access control.

4: Networking

This section explains how to configure managed and unmanaged Acropolis networks, describe the use of

Open vSwitch (OVS) in Acropolis. You will learn how to display and manage network details, differentiate between supported

OVS bond modes, and gain insight into default network configuration.

5: VM Management

This section shows you how to upload images, and how to create and manage virtual machines.

6: Health Monitoring and Alerts

In this section you will use the Health Dashboard to monitor a cluster’s health and performance. Plus, the Analyze dashboard is

used to create charts you can export with detailed information on a variety of components and metrics.

7: Distributed Storage Fabric

This section discusses creating and configuring storage containers, including the storage optimization features: deduplication, compression, and erasure coding.

8: AHV Workload Migration

Using Nutanix Move, this section shows how to migrate workloads to a cluster running Acropolis hypervisor followed by a lab where a VM running on a Nutanix cluster configured with ESXi is migrated to a Nutanix cluster running AHV.

9: Acropolis Services

This section gives you detailed information on Nutanix Volumes which provides high-availability, high-performance block storage

through a few easy configuration steps. It also discusses Nutanix Files.

10: Data Resiliency

This section shows how Nutanix provides comprehensive data protection at all levels of the

virtual datacenter: logical and physical.

11: Data Protection

Data can be replicated between Nutanix clusters, synchronously and asynchronously. This section shows how to configure a

Protection Domain (PD) and Remote Sites, as well as recover a VM from a PD and perform a planned fail-over of a PD.

12: Prism Central

Having discussed and used Prism Element earlier, this section looks at the capabilities of Prism Central. With the added

functionality provided by a Pro license, the focus is on features related to monitoring and managing multiple activities across a set of clusters.

13: Monitoring the Nutanix Cluster

This section shows you where to locate, and how to interpret cluster related log files. In addition, you will take a closer look at the

Nutanix Support Portal and online help.

14: Cluster Management and Expansion

This section outlines essential life-cycle operations, including starting/stopping a Nutanix cluster, as well as starting/shutting down a cluster’s node. You willalso learn how to expand a cluster, manage licenses, and upgrade the cluster’s software and firmware.

15: Remote Office Branch Office (ROBO)

Deployments :In this section, you will be presented with the various configurations and requirements specific to a ROBO

site, including hardware/software, witness VM requirements, failure and the recovery scenarios for two-node clusters, and the seeding process

Course Prerequisites


Familiarity with traditional virtualization storage architectures.

Comfort with Unix/Linux command line interface.
