VMware vSAN: Production Operations [V6.x] (SANPO6)

Course Description Schedule
 

Course Overview

In this three-day course, you will focus on building skills in configuring and performing common Day 2 administrator and end-user tasks with VMware vSAN™ 6.x. You will gain practical experience with vSAN production operations through the completion of instructor-led activities and hands-on lab exercises.

Product Alignment

  • ESXi 6.5
  • vCenter Server 6.5
  • vSAN 6.6

Who should attend

Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who are responsible for production support and administration of vSAN v6.x

Prerequisites

This course has the following prerequisites:

Completion of the VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [6.6] (VSDM) course or equivalent experience with vSAN is desirable.

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

  • Use VMware vSphere® Web Client
  • Create and manage VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
  • Create and modify a standard 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 6.5: Install, Configure, Manage (VICM) and VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [6.6] (VSDM) courses before enrolling in VMware vSAN: Production Operations.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

  • Describe vSAN host operations
  • Discuss vSAN networking requirements
  • Define the tasks involved in hardware replacement in a vSAN cluster
  • Perform vSAN cluster scale-out and scale-up operations
  • Describe common vSAN maintenance operations
  • Define the tasks required for updating and upgrading vSAN
  • Describe vSAN security operations
  • Configure a key management server (KMS) cluster
  • Configure vSAN storage policies and observe the effects of a cluster-wide change
  • Explain vSAN resilience and availability features
  • Perform ongoing vSAN management tasks
  • Use the vSAN health service to monitor health and performance
