Thatś right, you read correctly: now VCP 6 is composed of TWO exams, and you need to get a minimum score of 300 on each one. Check here the requirements, proces and details to do the test.
Two tests now. The 2V0-620 (vSphere 6 Foundations) is needed for any VCP 6 level certification (DCV – Data Center Virtualization, Cloud, Desktop and NX – NSX and networking). If you are planning some certification besides DCV, you ony need to do this exam once. It have 65 questions, and is simmilar to the VCA test but with more technical questions, specifically about the new products of the vSphere 6 family (VSAN 6.x, vRealize, VVOLs) and new features (Content Catalog, long distance vMotion, etc). There is a exam simulator (click here)that can be useful to understand the level of the questions present on the exam. Detailed information about the exam can be found in vSphere 6 Foundations Exam.
The 2V0-621 test, Data Center Virtualization, is more complex and have 85 questions. Is a good test as it require a good practical knowledge in VMware environments - you can't only make the vSphere ICM course. There is also a simulate test, which you can find it here.
Some tips about the exam content, as I have passed both BETA (few months ago) and also the actual exam yesterday:
- A ot of questions about resource pools (shares and reservations). Check exactly what are the default values of the shares high, medium and low because some questions needs mathematical calculations over these values and don't provide them.
- A lot of questions about permissions, some about COntent Libreries permissions. Check exactly what kind of permission each vCenter predefined role have. There are also questions about the ESXi integration with AD.
- Some questions aboutVSAN, what happen if there is a failure, fault domaisn, and new features on version 6.1.
- Check the new traffic types enabled on vmkernel interfaces and what each one does.
- Some questions about VMware Converter, how to change/add disks during the conversion, advanced options, etc.
- Know how to operate a VM from command line, using SSH or DCUI, and also how to use esxcli.
- Know what are and how the native multipathing policies work (MRU, Fixed, RR).
- Know PSC/SSO. A ot of questions were regarding Identity Sources, how to configure it and what types are.
- There were no questions about maximuns, just indirect questions about it (i.e. is it possible to create a VM with 150 vCPUs?)
Some other tips:
- Read the blueprint, now directly availabe on the links provided above. There are some questions that are referenced on the most hidden paces fro the blueprint content.
- Some questions from the simulate tests are on the actual test, but slightly different (usually with different answers options).
- Read all questions CAREFULLY, mostly if english is not your native language.
These tips were related to MY TEST, each one is different and there is a big number of possible questions. Your test may be different from mine.
