Troubleshooting the Cisco ACI Fabric - ACITS Course Outline

(2 Days)

Overview

Classic data centers integrate many different components from many different environments, creating a very complex and decentralized approach to troubleshooting application deployment. Just as ACI allows for centralized management focused on application needs, you can troubleshoot your ACI Fabric from a centralized location with the requirements of the application in mind. This two-day Cisco ACI training will introduce you to common ACI troubleshooting practices. You will use the ACI GUI and show commands in the CLI to identify faults in this Cisco ACI troubleshooting course. You will troubleshoot FA policies, app profiles, VMM domains, L3 OUT, and contracts, as well as analyze health scores to determine the current condition of the Fabric. This Cisco ACI troubleshooting training will help you be able to identify faults and determine current condition of faults in order to determine the appropriate next step.
