If asked to configure virtual machines vSphere, how do you get started? This course outlines how to configure Windows Server and Linux VMs for maximum performance, availability, and security. It introduces you to creating and modifying virtual networks via GUI or the vSphere client. After installing ESXi, it is essential to configure its management network. See how to use the command SU (substitute user) to create a shell under the root user. It is important you learn how to create, and modify virtual networks using CLI because it is faster and it saves time. Storage concepts, ISCSI storage, fibre channel devices, VMSF data storage, and your NAN storage will also be discussed. Once RAW LUNs is presented to an ESXi host, it can be used as a storage container for virtual machine data. You will learn about the steps involved in creating and viewing a VMSF Datastore.

This course provides you with practical information and easy-to-learn modules that teach you how to secure your vSphere machines. Learn about NFS components, as well as how to address and access control with NFS on Linus. See how to create two different interface NFS data storages. This course outlines the purpose of raw device mapping (RDM). Learn how to use RDM to store shared data directly on a LUN in your SAN. The material explains standard licensing, virtual standard installation and inventory within the virtual center. It analyzes managing virtual servers as well as how to plan the vCenter server deployment. It also outlines the requirements for cloning Virtual Machines on a standalone ESX/ESXi. This course further explains how you can troubleshoot the vCenter serve. Study how to handle startup and shutdown situations on virtual machines. This module describes the Start/Stop VMs during the off-hours feature, which starts or stops VMs on a schedule.

Finally, learn how to enforce VM security, including SSH Access and vCenter. Configuration, deployment, optimization, and troubleshooting techniques required to manage vSphere 4.1 are covered. This course will teach you how to secure, protect, and optimize Windows Server and Linux virtual machines The important process of controlling user access and password, active directory integration, managing firewalls, and also SSH access will be analyzed. With ESX only, you master how to run elevated privileges, the switch user, the sudo, and the set UID. You will also learn about the special modes of sudo setuid, and setgid so as to manage your users and permissions. This course is intended for IT professionals with Linux experience who want to learn more about permissions. The course will be helpful in preparing for the Certified Virtualization Expert (CVE) exam from VMware.
