Veritas Education Services NetBackup 8.1.2 administration training, now available

I’m pleased to announce open registration for a new Veritas Education Services course on NetBackup 8.1.2 administration. If you’re new to NetBackup, or would benefit from additional insight to the platform, this 5-day course will provide you with expert instruction on NetBackup configuration and management, including hands-on lessons on the new tools offered in NetBackup 8.1.2.

With NetBackup 8.1.2: Administration, you’ll learn how to effectively monitor backup operations to ensure your organization’s data recovery objectives are met.

Training is available in both Instructor-Led and Virtual Instructor-Led formats, and you may find a comprehensive course description here including the global class schedule and registration details.

And for those looking to update their Veritas Certification credentials in NetBackup 8.1.2, stay tuned! We are developing the new NetBackup 8.1.2 Veritas Certified Specialist exams for release next quarter.

Thanks @KimberleeChev

I don't see any module for NBU 8.1.x  security certificates? 

I can see by the amount of forum posts how this 'feature' is creating major headaches for backup admins.

Any chance that a separate module can be developed? 
Maybe as VILT (Virtual Instructor-Led Training) ?

Security certificates do seem to be covered in NBU8.1 Advanced Administration according to the course description... Best regards, Andrew

Thanks @andrew_mcc1!

I was not aware that it is now built-in to Advanced Admin.

I would still like to see this topic as a separate VILT module.

I used to present both NBU Admin and Advanced Admin training, but these Security certificates makes me feel that I don't know NBU anymore.
I was told confidentially that Veritas Support engineers received 3 days worth of training for NBU secure comms alone....

Hi @Marianne,

I've confirmed NetBackup security certificates are indeed covered within our NetBackup 8.1: Advanced Administration course. In the course, we address the basics of security, including securing NetBackup port communication, understanding and configuring security certificates, and topics such as NetBackup access control (NBAC) and auditing. Our lab activities provide students hands-on experience with these features.

Additionally, the Veritas Education Services team is currently working on the version 8.1.2 update to the course - available in December 2018.

Kindly,
Kimberlee
