This five-day course features intensive hands-on training that focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vSphere 6.7, which includes VMware ESXi 6.7 and VMware vCenter Server 6.7. This course prepares you to administer a vSphere infrastructure for an organization of any size.
This course is the foundation for most of the other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.
What Do Participants Learn?
Describe the software-defined data center • Explain the vSphere components and their function in the infrastructure • Add ESXi hosts to a VMware vCenter Server Appliance instance • Manage vCenter Server Appliance • Use a local content library as an ISO store, and deploy a virtual machine • Describe vCenter Server architecture • Use vCenter Server to manage an ESXi host • Configure and manage vSphere infrastructure with VMware Host Client and VMware vSphere Client • Describe virtual networks with vSphere standard switches • Configure standard switch policies • Use vCenter Server to manage various types of host storage: VMware vSphere® VMFS, NFS, iSCSI, and RDM • Examine the features and functions of Fibre Channel and VMware vSAN • Manage virtual machines, templates, clones, and snapshots • Migrate virtual machines with VMware vSphere vMotion • Migrate virtual machine storage with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion • Monitor resource usage, and manage resource pools • Discuss the VMware vSphere® High Availability (vSphere HA) cluster architecture • Configure vSphere HA • Manage vSphere HA and VMware vSphere Fault Tolerance • Use VMware vSphere Replication and VMware vSphere® Data Protection to replicate virtual machines and perform data recovery • Use VMware vSphere Distributed Resource Scheduler clusters to improve host scalability • Use VMware vSphere Update Manager to apply patches and perform basic troubleshooting of ESXi hosts, virtual machines, and vCenter Server operations • Identify troubleshooting methodology to logically diagnose faults and improve troubleshooting efficiency
