The NSX Mindset…VCP-NV & vSphere Foundations Exam Package Price!!

The NSX Mindset…VCP-NV & vSphere Foundations Exam Package Price!!

 

For those of you that may be interested in getting your VCP6-NV certification and need to also take and pass your Foundations exam as well, VMware has a deal for you!

There’s a discounted VCP-NV promotional package right now; for around $2,000 it gets you:

  • An exam prep course for the vSphere Foundations course
  • An exam voucher for vSphere Foundations exam
  • NSX Install, Configure, Manage On-Demand E-Learning course
  • A separate NSX exam prep course
  • An exam voucher for the VCP-NV 6.2
  • 6 CPUs of NSX Enterprise for non-production personal use (training)
  • A full year of VMUG Advantage, including eval licenses for almost all VMware products.

The Details

When one of my colleagues pointed out this promotion to me, I was blown away. Read the original post at The NSX Mindset. I wanted to make sure there wasn’t a hidden cost; The details do matter, so here they are. VMware is running this promotion in conjunction with the VMUG Advantage program. The individual needs to:

  1. Join VMUG (that initial step as a “Member” is free)
  2. Join the VMUG NSX Community (still no cost)
  3. Get VMUG Advantage with EVALExperience (This is $200)
  4. Get the VMUG NSX Training and Certification Package (This is $2,000)

DEMO: vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) 6.5 – Part 3 (vCenter Configuration)

DEMO: vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) 6.5 – Part 3

(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.

DEMO: vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) 6.5 – Part 2

(Configuration, Backup, & Restore)

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.
