Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) Training

Veritas Cluster Server (VCS) from Symantec connects multiple, independent systems into a management framework for increased availability. VCS links commodity hardware with intelligent software to provide application failover and control. VCS detects failure of an application by issuing specific commands, tests, or scripts to monitor the overall health of an application. VCS also determines the health of underlying resources supporting the application, such as file systems and network interfaces. VCS uses a redundant network heartbeat to discriminate between the loss of a system and the loss of communication between systems.

After completing this course, students will be able to:
  • Manage existing highly available application services using VERITAS Cluster Server
  • Install VCS and create a cluster
  • Configure service groups and resources
  • Implement and verify failover and failback capability for application, storage, and network services
  • Perform a few ongoing maintenance
  • Reconfigure cluster membership to add and remove systems from a cluster
  • Configure dependencies between service groups
  • Implement alternative storage and network configurations
  • Perform common maintenance task
  • Validate your cluster implementation
  • Configure and optimize cluster behaviour, NFS share, and other applications
  • Analyze, troubleshoot and correct cluster problems.
  • Configure and manage service group dependencies and workload management
