Troubleshooting VMware Virtual Infrastructure
VMware Training Overview

Troubleshooting VMware Virtual Infrastructure gives the student an opportunity to setup a VMware environment. After it is set up, the class will see how to troubleshoot an environment, and then use those tools to actually solve problems that have been set on the lab.

This class will focus on troubleshooting processes and developing troubleshooting skills. The resources used in class will provide students with a toolbox that can be used in their production environment. The student should have a working knowledge of VMware (vSphere or VI3). The class will be approximately 25% lecture and 75% demo and labs.


Course duration

The class can be 4 days or 5 days. The 5th day will focus on Security Configuration and Troubleshooting.
