Course Description

The Cisco Prime© Network Registrar (PNR) instructor-led course provides you with the advanced knowledge and skillsets required to successfully deploy, maintain, and troubleshoot Cisco Prime Network Registrar in a typical network environment. You will learn the fundamental concepts upon which the DHCP and DNS servers are based – this solidifies your understanding of how to troubleshoot and solve problems relating to installation and configuration. You will configure Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Domain Name System (DNS) servers. In addition, you will use a system command-line interface (CLI) to monitor the health, status, and functionality of DHCP, DNS, Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP), and other servers.
