TrueSight Server Automation 8.x: Advanced Administering

TrueSight Server Automation is a leading platform for the management, control, and enforcement of configuration changes in the datacenter. This course is designed for administrators responsible for administering and maintaining the TrueSight Server Automation (TSSA) environment.

Students will learn how to plan and scale the TSSA environment using best practice techniques; plan and apply best practice techniques to security and access management; perform application release management; configure a PXE-based provisioning solution using TSSA; and use NSH scripts and the BladeLogic Command Line Interface (BLCLI).
