OBJECTIVES:
By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:
  • Configure and manage vSphere networking and storage for a large and sophisticated enterprise
  • Manage changes to the vSphere environment
  • Optimize the performance of all vSphere components
  • Use  VMware vSphere® ESXi™ Shell and  VMware vSphere® Management Assistant to manage vSphere
  • Use VMware vSphere® Auto Deploy™ to provision ESXi hosts
  • Harden the vSphere environment against security threats
  • Use VMware vSphere® Web Client, the command-line interface, and log files to diagnose and correct problems in vSphere
  • Troubleshoot networking, storage, VMware vCenter Server®, ESXi host, vSphere cluster, VMware vSphere® vMotion®, and virtual machine problems
 
INTENDED AUDIENCE:
Experienced system administrators, system engineers, and system integrators
 
 
PREREQUISITES:
This course requires completion of one of the following prerequisites:
  • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.5] course
