Prerequisites

  • Storage administration experience on block or file storage devices
  • Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.x] course

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

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

  • Use VMware vSphere® Client
  • Create and manage VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
  • Create and modify a standard switch
  • Create and modify a distributed 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 [V7] course before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage.
