Prerequisites

This course requires completion of one of the following courses:

  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.x]
  • VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale [V6.x]
  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V7]
  • VMware vSphere: Optimize and Scale [V7]

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

This course requires that a student be able to perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course

  • Create VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers and folders
  • Create a virtual machine using a wizard or a template
  • Modify a virtual machine’s hardware
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
  • Configure and manage a vSphere DRS cluster with resource pools
  • Configure and manage a VMware vSphere® High Availability cluster

If you cannot perform all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete one of the prerequisite courses before enrolling in VMware vSphere with Kubernetes: Deploy & Manage.
