Cisco UCS Training (DCUCCEN)

Deploy, Manage, and Scale Cisco UCS Domains with UCS Central (DCUCCEN) is a 2-day training program designed to teach about a scalable management solution for growing Cisco UCS environments. You will learn about the management of multiple Cisco UCS domains, global policies, and global ID pools. Cisco UCS Central does not replace Cisco UCS Manager, which is the policy-driven management for single UCS domain. Instead, Cisco UCS Central focuses on managing and monitoring the UCS domains on a global level, across multiple individual Cisco UCS Classic and Mini management domains worldwide. During this two-day lab-driven course, you will become familiar with, deploy, configure, and manage multiple UCS domains with UCS Central.
