Somehow I've managed to book the VCP550 exam while I was actually preparing for the VCP510 exam. Needless to say, I had a rude shock when I sat the exam and failed miserably.
My VCP cert expires tomorrow.
Is there any way I can take the VCP 510 exam? I tried to get an authorization but it says I've already taken the 510 exam and passed.
Can't seem to find any number to call either.
The issue is I prepped for 5.1 exam because I thought I could take this as per the info in
I thought I had a choice, and since I deal with 5.1 and I'm stronger in this area, I thought it the safer option.
You can't take the same VCP510 exam that you passed to achieve the certification - this is a safeguard against people stealing exam items from taking it over and over.
This text is taken from the page you linked to:
If you are already VCP certified, passing the VCP550 will recertify you.
If you are already VCP certified, passing either the VCP550 or VCP550D will recertify you.
You should be able to get authorisation for VCP550D, and there's some excellent resources here: http://thevirtualunknown.co.uk/2014/11/12/vmware-vcp-5-5-delta-exam-vcp550d-passed/
