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 VMware technologies in the software-defined data center and helps accelerate the transformation to cloud computing.

VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.7] also fulfills a course requirement for the VMware Certified Professional 6.5 - Data Center Virtualization (VCP6.5-DCV) exam.

• Manage vCenter Server Appliance
• Use a local content library as an ISO store, and deploy a virtual machine
• Know 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
