Novell's hands-on Advanced Technical Training (ATT) course to run in September, will show students the latest version of eDirectory 8.7 running across multiple platforms (NetWare, Windows and Linux).
Novell has been running eDirectory courses in major cities accross Australia since 2000.
Advanced topics include performing health checks, troubleshooting eDirectory problems, LDAP configuration and use, backup and recovery options, eDirectory background processes, as well as design and implementation guidelines. Students attending this class will perform an actual upgrade to eDirectory 8.7, tree merge, troubleshooting and configuration.
Jim Henderson, the co-author of "Novell's Guide to Troubleshooting eDirectory" has created a Web site that provides support and background information about the eDirectory Advanced Technical Training course. See http://ediratt.dyndns.org/.
On his Web site, Henderson explains that the course is aimed at sudents with experience in the subject matter.
"Because of the fast pace of the course, we do not spend time on introductory topics such as installation, basic configuration and administration," Henderson said.
Potential students should:
- Understand how to use the eDirectory Administration tools.
- Understand how to perform directory partition and replica operations.
- Be comfortable working with eDirectory or Novell Directory Services.
- Be familiar with basic daily administration of a production environment.
- Be familiar with basic design techniques for small to midsize environments.
- Know how to run a health check with iMonitor.
The ATT edirectory course will run over three days in Brisbane from September 15, and will cost $1950.
