Created for senior Linux® system administrators, this 4-day course strongly emphasizes lab-based activities. You’ll learn how to deploy and manage shared storage and server clusters that provide highly available network services to a mission-critical enterprise environment.
This course also helps you prepare for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in High Availability Clustering exam (EX436).
- Clusters and storage
- Get an overview of storage and cluster technologies.
- Create high-availability clusters.
- Review and create the architecture of Pacemaker-based high-availability clusters.
- Nodes and quorum
- Review cluster node membership and how quorum is used to control clusters.
- Understand fencing and fencing configuration.
- Resource groups
- Create and configure simple resource groups to provide high-availability services to clients.
- Troubleshoot high-availability clusters
- Identify and troubleshoot cluster problems.
- Complex resource groups
- Control complex resource groups by using constraints.
- Two-node clusters
- Identify and work around two-node clusters issues.
- ISCSI initiators
- Manage iSCSI initiators for access to shared storage.
- Multipath Storage
- Configure redundant storage access.
- Logical volume manager (LVM) clusters
- Manage clustered LV.
- Global File System 2
- Create symmetric shared file systems.
- Eliminate single points of failure
- Eliminate single points of failure to increase service availability.
- Comprehensive review
- Set up high-availability services and storage.
This is course is intended for:
- Senior Linux system administrators responsible for maximizing resiliency though high-availability clustering services and using fault-tolerant shared storage technologies
This course is intended for students who already have their RHCE Certification or equivalent experience.
