Installation & configuration of the Cisco Unified Computing System with Virtual Reality (ICUCSVR)


Installation & configuration of the Cisco Unified Computing System with Virtual Reality (ICUCSVR) 1.0 is a 3-day instructor-led course. In this Cisco UCS server training course, you will become experienced with the installation, configuration, and troubleshooting of Cisco Unified Computing System (UCS) B-Series. The learner will also get virtual hands on experience with racking and connecting UCS devices in a virtual environment using NterOne’s ClearConnect VR application. This custom-built Cisco UCS training class was developed by NterOne using the best lessons from all available Cisco server courses to maximize the learning experience for individuals who want to focus on day-to-day administration using Cisco UCS Manager as the primary interface.


Using real-world scenarios and examples in a traditional lab as well as a state-of-the-art virtual reality environment developed by NterOne, this Cisco training course will explore all of the components of the UCS B-Series from a day to day administrative point of view. Learn UCS Manager, B-Series administration, troubleshooting, and management tools used to support basic UCS and multi-cluster support with UCS Central.

Note: Registrants are required to be located in the US, VR goggles cannot be shipped outside of the US.
