Course Outline

VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage v6.7

This is a 5 day, instructor-led course.

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. It is the foundation for most other VMware technologies in the software-defined data center.

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

•   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 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.

•   System administrators
•   System engineers
