Data ONTAP 7-Mode Administration Training (D7ADM)

Data ONTAP 7-Mode Administration Training (D7ADM)


Welcome to the NetApp® Data ONTAP® 7-Mode Administration course. This five-day instructor-led course enables you to perform basic support and administrative functions on a NetApp storage system running the Data ONTAP system operating in 7-Mode.

Customize It:

With onsite Training, courses can be scheduled on a date that is convenient for you, and because they can be scheduled at your location, you don’t incur travel costs and students won’t be away from home. Onsite classes can also be tailored to meet your needs. You might shorten a 5-day class into a 3-day class, or combine portions of several related courses into a single course, or have the instructor vary the emphasis of topics depending on your staff’s and site’s requirements.

Audience/Target Group

This course is intended for NetApp customers, partners and employees who provide basic support and perform administrative functions of the ONTAP 7-Mode operating system.
