An introduction to VMware's cloud-based virtual operating system, vSphere 6.
- [Voiceover] Hello my name is Brandon Neill and I've been working with VMware and teaching VMware courses for the past six years. Up and running with VMware vSphere 6.0 will provide the information necessary to create a full vSphere 6.0 environment running inside a VMware workstation using Auto Lab. After the initial lab creation I will explain the basics of how the vSphere components work and walk you through the configuration of networking and storage, creating a virtual machine manually, and using templates and clones, and finally using vMotion and snapshots.
After the completion of this course you will have a running vSphere environment to use for exam prep or to improve your knowledge and experience with vSphere. Let's get started.
This course teaches the basics of installing, configuring, and maintaining vSphere 6, including installation of the ESXi hypervisor and vCenter Server using a pre-created environment called AutoLab. Following lab creation, Brandon Neill introduces the core components of vSphere (ESXi and vCenter) and shows how to configure storage and networking. Finally, he runs through some typical virtual-machine management tasks, such as creating a virtual machine manually vs. creating one with templates and clones, working with snapshots, and performing a vMotion migration.
- Recognize the purpose of the vCenter server in a lab environment.
- Identify the correct settings needed to create a virtual network.
- Explain how to correct a duplicate IP address issue.
- Understand the difference between iSCSI interfaces and virtual machine interfaces.
- Describe the steps in the process of cloning.
- Recall how to revert back to previous stages of a snapshot chain.
