  • Create a multisite content library for synchronizing virtual machine templates, vApps, ISO images, and scripts across vCenter Server instances
  • Deploy virtual machines from a content library
  • Increase ESXi security by enabling lockdown mode on an ESXi host
  • Upgrade virtual machines to the latest virtual hardware and VMware Tools version
  • Configure NFS- and iSCSI-backed virtual volumes to provide a common storage platform, independent of the underlying storage hardware
  • Create storage policies, and use them with virtual machines and virtual volume datastores
  • Register a key management server with vCenter Server, and create an encrypted virtual machine
  • Create a distributed switch, and use VMware vSphere Network I/O Control to allocate bandwidth for a virtual machine
  • Activate VMware vCenter Server High Availability

Prerequisites

This course requires completion of one the following courses or equivalent knowledge and administration experience with VMware ESX /ESXi and vCenter Server:

  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage
  • VMware vSphere: Fast Track
  • VMware vSphere: What's New
  • VMware vSphere: Troubleshooting

Experience with working at the command line is helpful.

The course material presumes that you can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:

  • install and configure ESX or ESXi
  • install vCenter Server
  • create vCenter Server objects, such as data centers and folders
  • create and manage vCenter Server roles and permissions
  • create and modify a standard switch
  • create and modify a distributed switch
  • connect an ESX/ESXi host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
  • create a VMware vSphere VMFS datastore
  • enable VMware vSphere vMotion on an ESX/ESXi host
  • use a wizard or a template to create a virtual machine
  • modify a virtual machine's hardware
  • migrate a virtual machine with vSphere vMotion
  • migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere Storage vMotion
  • configure and manage a VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler cluster with resource pools
  • configure and manage a VMware vSphere High Availability cluster.

If you cannot complete all of these tasks, then VMware recommends that you instead take the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.7] course.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
