Candidates should be able to perform the tasks listed below:
- Configure a high-availability cluster, using either physical or virtual systems, that:
- Utilizes shared storage.
- Provides service fail-over between the cluster nodes.
- Provides preferred node for a given service.
- Selectively fails over services based on specific constraints.
- Preemptively removes non-functioning cluster members to prevent corruption of shared storage.
- Manage logical volumes in a clustered environment:
- Create volume groups that are available to all members of a highly available cluster.
- Create logical volumes that can be simultaneously mounted by all members of a high-availability cluster.
- Configure a GFS file system to meet specified size, layout, and performance objectives.
- Configure iSCSI initiators.
- Use multipathed devices.
- Configure cluster logging.
- Configure cluster monitoring.
As with all Red Hat performance-based exams, configurations must persist after reboot without intervention.
