HPE Serviceguard on Linux

( Duration: 5 Days )

This HPE Serviceguard on Linux training course is designed for experienced Linux system and network administrators implementing HPE Serviceguard. Topics include the basic requirements of a highly available system and progress through to the configuration of a Serviceguard cluster/packages, culminating in using both NFS and Oracle toolkit packages along with the cluster simulator and analytics utilities.

By attending HPE Serviceguard on Linux workshop, delegates will learn to:

  • Configure, implement, and manage an HPE SG cluster and packages
  • Install HPE Serviceguard A.12.00 and Serviceguard Manager
  • Use “cmeasyinstall”
  • Utilize basic troubleshooting techniques
  • Install and configure NFS and Oracle packages using the toolkits
  • Use Live Application Detach and “rolling upgrade”
  • Configure generic resources
  • Use the SG simulator and SG cluster analytics

  • Background in Linux system and network administration including Logical Volume Manager (LVM) and/or Veritas Volume Manager (VxVM)

The HPE Serviceguard on Linux class is ideal for:

  • Linux system and network administrators who currently, or soon will, develop, design, implement, and monitor Serviceguard (SG) clusters on Linux
