VMware vRealize Automation: Install, Configure, Manage [V7.3] Training & Certification Course

Overview

During this five-day course, you will focus on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vRealize® Automation™. You will learn about the configuration and use of the vRealize Automation platform, including self-service provisioning and the creation of catalogue services that include predefined virtual machines, software components, and on-demand VMware NSX® networks. This course also covers interfacing vRealize Automation with other systems using VMware vRealize® Orchestrator™ to leverage workflows, creating approval cycles, and managing machine lifecycles to conserve resources. In addition, you will better understand and know how to achieve the benefits of automation as a component of the software-defined data centre.

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

•  Describe the vRealize Automation architecture and use cases
•  Install and configure vRealize Automation
•  Manage vRealize Automation entities on VMware and third-party virtual, cloud, and physical infrastructures
•  Configure and manage catalogues and blueprints
•  Configure and manage business groups and reservations for computing resources on VMware, Microsoft, Amazon, and other platforms
•  Use the self-service portal to request and manage machines in accordance with vRealize Automation approval and governance policies
•  Explain vRealize Automation extensibility and workflows
•  Manage and monitor machines and resource reclamation

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

•  Install and configure VMware ESX®/VMware ESXi™
•  Install VMware vCenter Server®
•  Create vCenter Server objects, such as data centres and folders
•  Create and manage vCenter Server roles and permissions
•  Create and modify a standard switch
•  Create and modify a distributed switch
•  Connect an ESX/ESXi host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
•  Create a VMware vSphere® VMFS datastore
•  Enable VMware vSphere® vMotion® on an ESX/ESXi host
•  Use a wizard or a template to create a virtual machine
•  Modify a virtual machine’s hardware
•  Migrate a virtual machine with vSphere vMotion
•  Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
