Classic data centers integrate different components from many different environments, which creates a very complex and decentralized approach to troubleshooting application deployment. Just as ACI allows for centralized management focused on application needs, you can troubleshoot your ACI fabric from a centralized location with the requirements of the application in mind.

The first step in troubleshooting any scenario is to fully understand your existing ACI environment. In this two-day course, you will configure your own fabric as a foundation for the troubleshooting exercises that will follow. You will use common ACI troubleshooting tools, such as Visore, to identify problems impacting fabric-wide connectivity and use the APIC CLI to expose misconfigurations that trigger fault messages in the APIC GUI while practicing applying GUI and CLI tools to various troubleshooting scenarios.
