VMware vSAN: Production Operations (SANPO6) Version 6.x

Course Description Schedule
 

Course Overview

In this three-day course, you will focus on building skills in configuring and performing common Day 2 administrator and end-user tasks with VMware vSAN™ 6.x. You will gain practical experience with vSAN production operations through the completion of instructor-led activities and hands-on lab exercises.

Product Alignment

  • ESXi 6.5
  • vCenter Server 6.5
  • vSAN 6.6

Who should attend

Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who are responsible for production support and administration of vSAN v6.x

Prerequisites

This course has the following prerequisites:

Completion of the VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage (VSDM) course or equivalent experience with vSAN is desirable.

The course presumes that a student can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling:

  • Use VMware vSphere® Web Client
  • Create and manage VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
  • Create and modify a standard switch
  • Connect a VMware ESXi™ host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
  • Create a VMware vSphere® VMFS datastore
  • Use a wizard or a template to create a virtual machine
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®

If you cannot complete all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage (VICM) and VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage (VSDM) courses before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Production Operations.
