Offers students a hands-on experience programatically managing network hardware and essential network services such as DHCP, DNS, ARP, FTP, Telnet, HTTP, SSH, SMTP, TFTP, and SNMP through the use of cross-platform scripting. Students with little or no programming experience will learn scripting by replicating functionality provided in common management suites such as HP OpenView, Nagios, Zennos, IBM Netview and others.


By the end of this course students will be competent in their ability to create scripts that can automate non-trivial management tasks. Students will also have a good understanding of how network management software operates, and how to extend its functionality to meet their needs.
