IBM Cloud Pak for Integration Administration (WM601G)

Overview

This course provides technical professionals with the needed skills to do the IBM Cloud Pak for Integration administration and troubleshooting tasks.

The course begins with an introduction to IBM Cloud Pak for Integration. You explore the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment. You manage dashboard security for Cloud Pak Integration. You configure an external LDAP server (OpenLDAP) and add LDAP users to the Cloud Pak environment. You explore the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP) web console for container management such as Roles, Topology, Cluster Inventory, Alerts, Events, CPU, and Memory. You perform basic administration tasks in the RHOCP web console. You examine the available open-source monitoring options such as Metrics, Alerts, and Dashboards. You also scale the application deployment by using OpenLDAP as an example.

You examine the logs for pods by running commands and in the RHOCP console. To troubleshoot common Cloud Pak cluster problems, you get information and logs for nodes, cluster, and pods. You learn how to troubleshoot the Container Engine and the pods that fail to start. You set different log levels for Red Hat OpenShift, check the routes, and understand troubleshooting for installation. You learn how to collect MustGather files for submitting it to IBM Support team for troubleshooting.

You upgrade the Integration capabilities and runtimes and Platform Navigator. You also learn also how to remove the Integration capabilities and runtimes.
