Micro Focus Open Enterprise Server Administration


5 Days


The purpose of this course is to teach students Open Enterprise Server (OES) basic administrative skills to install and configure Micro Focus OES (versions through OES 2015). Students learn the concepts, components, and processes of all Micro Focus OES Services, which is required core knowledge for anyone who plans to administer Micro Focus OES.

Students are provided a lab environment to build their administrative knowledge by performing “real-world" tasks through a variety of exercises related to installing and configuring Micro Focus OES and its services on a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.
