Course overview

This training course covers monitoring and managing a computer network with HPE Intelligent Management Center Software Platform (IMC) version 7.3. This course discusses installation, then teaches adding devices, viewing and managing both firmware and configuration, and finally teaches managing alarms and VLANs. The hands-on laboratory exercises monitor and manage ArubaOS Switch, ArubaOS-CX, Comware, Cisco, Arista, pfSense firewall, Windows server, VMware ESXi, and Linux server.


Course objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Describe IMC’s software structureDescribe the protocols
  • IMC uses to monitor and manage devices
  • Discover devices automatically and add devices manually
  • View the managed devices in multiple ways
  • Manage device configurations and firmware
  • Automate device configuration changesMonitor the network’s performance


Learners should have networking experience to get the most from this training course.


  • Network engineers and administrators
  • Network architects and consultants
