NS1-050 Post Mortem: NetApp Installation Accredited Professional

July 29th, 2008

What is there to say about NS1-050…

Avoid taking it if you don’t have a good understanding of FAS equipment and Data ONTAP

It doesn’t require an advanced understanding, but a good solid foundation, having worked with equipment for some time, as well as some basic diagnostic and configuration work.

Still nothing published about this on the NetApp Certification site, but betas are as betas will be!

Good luck taking it!
