Cisco Certified Network Professional (CCNP) – Data Center -Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing (DCUCI)


DCUCI Implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing exam is associated with the CCNP® DC certification and with the Cisco Unified Computing Support Specialist. This 90-minute, 65?75 question exam tests a candidate's knowledge of implementing Cisco Data Center Unified Computing. Concepts like setup of the computing environment in a standalone and rack-mountable configuration, provisioning of storage resources, backup, management functions and deployment of a virtualized environment are covered by this exam. The exam is closed book and no outside reference materials are allowed.


• Install Cisco R-Series Rack Enclosures in the data center. • Use Cisco Integrated Management Controller to provision LAN and SAN connectivity for the C-Series server. • Use the LSI MegaRAID web user interface to provision local hard drives into a RAID 5 array. • Implement system management, maintenance, and high availability services for Cisco UCS B-Series. • Maintain Cisco UCS in a high-availability configuration Implement generation 1 and generation 2 connectivity. • Implement LAN & SAN connectivity for Cisco UCS B-Series hardware. • Provision VLANs and fabric interconnect uplinks for server connectivity to the Layer 3 data center cloud. • Provision VSANs and fabric interconnect Fibre Channel uplinks for server connectivity to the data center storage cloud. • Provision service profiles with initial and updating templates Implement virtualization features. • Provision Cisco VM-FEX
