NSP System Administration

Course number: OS00121-V-2200
Course duration: 3 days
Price: $2,395 US

Course overview

This hands-on instructor-led course enables the learner to develop a solid theoretical and practical understanding of NSP systems management, security and maintenance tools and procedures .  Begin by learning the key relationships within the NSP system architecture, including Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, RHEL, NSP cluster and NSP system components.  Understand how to secure Kubernetes and the internal NSP subsystems and services through TLS certificate management.  Discover how the “Kubectl” command line tool simplifies management of the Kubernetes cluster.  Learn important NSP component-specific admin procedures such as start/stop, status retrieval, and enabling logs.  Understand the different NSP system databases and how to perform backup/restore procedures.  Verify and monitor overall NSP system health and performance using tools such as Kibana, Grafana and log files.  And finally, view how to manage NSP user access control by creating/modifying users, user groups, roles and resource groups. This course is based on NSP version 23.4.
