Course Overview

TOP

In this course, you will learn how to install, configure, manage, and troubleshoot VMware vSphere 6, including VMware ESXi 6 and VMware vCenter Server 6. This course combines the content of the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage course with troubleshooting skills needed for maintaining highly available and scalable vSphere environments. You will gain practical experience with these concepts through the completion of hands-on labs.

This fast-track course satisfies the prerequisite for taking the VMware Certified Professional 6 - Data Center Virtualization (VCP6-DCV) exam.
