Cisco Data Center Unified Computing Implementation v5.0

This 5-day intensive instructor-led course is designed to provide engineers involved in deployment of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) B-Series Blade Servers and Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Servers with the knowledge and skills required execute a virtualisation solution based on a detailed implementation plan. Delegates will be able to install, provision server hardware, operating systems, hypervisors and applications. Management, maintenance and troubleshooting aspects are incorporated into this course.

Delegates are expected to have an understanding of the UCS product family before arriving in class, and will be provided with links to e-learning content, which needs to be completedprior to attendance ( approx 10 hours).


After you complete this course you will be able to:

  • Implement Cisco UCS C-Series rack servers in standalone mode. Boot from the local hard drive and mount the Fibre Channel SAN LUN for shared storage
  • Install Cisco R-Series rack enclosures in the data center
  • Install components in the Cisco UCS C-Series rack server prior to rack mounting
  • Install Cisco UCS C-Series rack servers in a Cisco R-Series rack
  • Use the Cisco UCS Host Upgrade Utility to upgrade or downgrade C-Series firmware to the correct version
  • Provision SNMP and syslog, and use C-Series monitoring tools
  • Use the Cisco Integrated Management Controller to provision LAN and SAN connectivity for the C-Series server
  • Use the LSI MegaRAID web user interface to provision local hard drives into a RAID 5 array
  • Install VMware ESXi in the C-Series server local hard drives
  • Implement system management, maintenance, and high-availability services for Cisco UCS B-Series
  • Implement local and remote authentication services to restrict privileges and delegate management authority in Cisco UCS Manager
  • List the processes for managing the firmware repository and upgrade or downgrade Cisco UCS firmware components using Cisco UCS Manager
  • Implement backup and restore capabilities in Cisco UCS Manager
  • Implement syslog, Smart Call Home, and SPAN
  • Maintain Cisco UCS in a high-availability configuration
  • Implement generation 1 and generation 2 connectivity
  • Differentiate between physical connections on the IOM and the redundant connections for management and data plane over the I/O MUX and midplane
  • Implement LAN and SANconnectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series hardware
  • Provision servers by leveraging reusable pools, policies, and templates that allow for rapid provisioning and consistency of policy
  • Perform initial Cisco UCS cluster setup and provide management IP addresses for blade servers
  • Provision VLANs and fabric interconnect uplinks for server connectivity to the Layer 3 data center cloud
  • Provision VSANs and fabric interconnect Fibre Channel uplinks for server connectivity to the data center storage cloud
  • Provision resource pools for servers, UUIDs, MAC addresses, WWNN, WWPN, and iSCSI
  • Configure reusable server policies in Cisco UCS Manager
  • Provision service profiles with initial and updating templates
  • Implement virtualization features unique to Cisco UCS that improve performance and manageability
  • Provision Cisco VM-FEX in Cisco UCS Manager and the VMware vCenter Server
  • Provision Cisco VM-FEX universal passthrough in Cisco UCS Manager and the VMware vCenter Server
