VMware Education has decided to make enhancements to the Desktop Virtualization Certification Program. Effective immediately, VMware Certified Associate 4 – Desktop (VCA4-DT) certification is not a pre-requisite for the VMware Certified Professional 4 – Desktop (VCP4-DT) exam. For the new path see the official VCP-DT page. All other requirements for the Desktop Certification Program remain the same: for the VCAP-DT certification (still no news about it and when the beta will start) require the VCP-DT (and also the VCP certification, but this was already required for the VCP-DT). Why of this change? Maybe because there […]

Still work in progress to the VCP5 Blueprint study notes, but first two objectives are (quite) completed. Stay tuned for the next objectives! For the blueprint see: http://vinfrastructure.it/certifications-on-virtualization/vcp/vcp5/

Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi See also this similar post: Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi and Objective 1.2 – Install and Configure VMware ESXi. Perform an interactive installation of ESXi (similar as vSphere 4.x) Interactive installation is quite simple and similar to a generic ESXi 4.x. Seems strange but there is no mention on scripted installation (introduced first time, for ESXi, in version 4.1) in the blueprint, but IMHO you must know them, at least how you can boot from (you can PXE boot the ESXi installer or boot […]

Objective 1.1 – Install and Configure vCenter Server See also this similar post: Objective 1.1 – Install and Configure vCenter Server and Objective 1.1 — Install and Configure vCenter Server. Identify available vCenter Server editions (new in vSphere 5.x) As in vSphere 4.x, the vCenter Server 5 editions are: vCenter Server Foundation: same limits of 4.x (max 3 hosts, no Orchestrator, no Linked mode) vCenter Server Essential: basically a Foundation edition to be used in the Essential and Essential+ bundles vCenter Server Standard: the full edition (with some limits only in the appliance version) For […]

With this first post, I will start a collection of link and notes about the VCP5 exam prep. I will use the official blueprint (the actual version is 1.2, and is still related to the beta exam, but probably it will remain the same). Let’s start from the part that is not included in the blueprint (something is in objective 1.5): the VMware products and solutions overview and some concepts about cloud computing. Section 0 – VMware Vision (not included in the blueprint, but required) Objective 0.1 – VMware Products VMware vSphere VMware View VMware vCloud Director VMware SRM […]

After two year I’m again on the VCP beta exam… (on July, 14 2009 I’ve take the VCP4 beta exam, that was the first beta exam from VMware). The story is available on: http://communities.vmware.com/people/AndreTheGiant/blog/2011/07/21/my-vmware-vcp5-beta-exam-experience The beta exam As written in the official blueprint (v1.2) the beta exam (code VCP511) consist of 180 questions (with a short pre-exam survey of 8 questions). Beta exam period will finish on July, 24 (I never though that some VUE testing center were open also on other day than Mon-Fri) and can be schedules in any VUE center (depending on […]

After  the launch of vSphere 5 on July 12th, also the new VCP5 has been launched! The VMware Certification portal has already been updated with the VCP5 exam blueprint and even a VCP5 mock exam, and there is a substantial amount of information about the training requirements on the VCP5 homepage. The final exam will be available to take after August 29th 2011, but there was also be the usual beta period until Jul 24.

The story is also available on: http://communities.vmware.com/people/AndreTheGiant/blog/2011/06/07/my-thoughts-on-vcp-dt-certification About VCP-DT The VMware Certified Professional 4 – Desktop Certification is the second step of the Desktop Technologies Certifications paths. To become a VCP4-DT: http://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=21427&ui=www_cert. Basically the two requirements are: VCP4 and VCA4-DT certifications… no course is mandatory, but some courses are recommended. Sound strange, but I’ve not found the offical price of this exam. In the web site there is only this sentece “Register for the VCP4-DT exam before September 1, 2011 and take advantage of the $50 discount”. So I have to assume that the price that […]
