Red Hat Enterprise Clustering and Storage Management – RH436 is intensive, hands-on course that teaches storage management, the Red Hat High Availability Add-On and the shared storage technology delivered by Red Hat Global File System 2 (GFS2) and Red Hat Storage Server.

Course overview

Created for senior Linux system administrators, this course strongly emphasizes lab-based activities. You’ll learn how to deploy and manage shared storage and server clusters that provide highly available network services to a mission-critical enterprise environment.

This training will prepare you for the Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Clustering and Storage Management exam – RH436. After passing EX436 you will become Red Hat Certificate of Expertise in Clustering and Storage Management. This certification is part of the Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path and EX436 can be recognized as one of the five required exams.

Course content summary

  • Install and configure the Red Hat High Availability Add-On
  • Create and manage highly available services
  • Work with shared storage (iSCSI) and configure multipathing
  • Configure GFS2 file systems
  • Configure XFS file systems
  • Work with the Red Hat Storage Server


Senior Linux system administrators responsible for maximizing resiliency though high-availability clustering services and using fault-tolerant shared storage technologies. Red Hat Certified Engineers (RHCE) on their Red Hat Certified Architect (RHCA) path.


You do not have to be, but we recommend to you the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) certificate, but surely you must have equivalent knowledge, skills and experience.
