Course Overview

As a network administrator, you have to juggle many different tasks.  NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 can simplify one of your most demanding responsibilities: routine network management. You can learn the basics of eDirectory management by attending Fundamentals of NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 (Course 3078).  During this course, you will learn how to perform directory-related administrative tasks using NetIQ eDirectory 8.8 on a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 platform.  The course focuses on design principles essential to planning an optimized eDirectory tree and the critical infrastructure processes that enable eDirectory to reliably maintain and securely replicate directory data.

Training Level: 1 - Novice

Duration: 5 Days

Key Objectives

During this course, you will learn how to complete the following tasks:

  • Install eDirectory 8.8 on a SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Server
  • Administer eDirectory using iManager
  • Design and evaluate an eDirectory tree
  • Maintain eDirectory using iMonitor
  • Back up and restore eDirectory

Audience Summary

This course is intended for network administrators and other network management professionals who have little or no experience using NetIQ eDirectory but who are planning to implement eDirectory on a mixed or homogeneous platform network. This can apply to a student deploying eDirectory in any network environment on any of the supported platforms (Windows, NetWare, Linux, Unix, Solaris, AIX, etc) for any reason or students with significant Linux training and/or experience who need to implement NetIQ services in their Linux environment. All of the services (such as GroupWise, ZEN, IDM, iFolder, iPrint, etc) are directory-enabled, so a fundamental understanding of eDirectory is prerequisite to deploying any of those services.

Course Prerequisites

Students should have a basic knowledge of the following:
  • Experience with proprietary network operating systems including NetWare, Windows, or Linux
  • Familiarity with a Linux server and management tasks performed on a Linux server
  • Fundamental knowledge of networking technologies such as those in Fundamentals of Networking (Novell Course 3003 v2)
