(vCenter Configuration)

part-3

 

This enablement video is Part 3 of a video series. In part 1, I  showed you how to deploy the vCenter Server Appliance 6.5. In Part 2, I show you how to configure the appliance itself from the appliance admin console and go through some initial settings. If you have not watched Part 1 & 2, I highly recommend you go back and watch them first in order. The links to all (3) videos are listed below.

In the Part 3 video, I show you some basic initial configurations in the vCenter Server Appliance 6.5 from the vSphere Web Client. These configurations include adding the appliance to an Active Directory domain, adding Active Directory as an Identity Source, etc.

part2

This enablement video is part 2 of a video series. In part 1, I  showed you how to deploy the vCenter Server Appliance 6.5. In Part 2, I show you how to configure the appliance itself from the appliance admin console and go through some initial settings. Then I show you the new feature in the VCSA 6.5 appliance where you can directly backup and restore VCSA from the appliance itself. This is one of the new features of the VCSA 6.5. This like some of the other new features (Builtin  – HA / Update Manager) are only available in the VCSA 6.5, but not in the Windows-based version of vCenter Server 6.5.

If you missed Part 1 of this demo series, I highly recommend you watch it first before watching Part 2. Then after watching Part 1 & 2, watch Part 3 which covers configuring the vCenter Server via the vSphere Web Client.
