Jump to solution

Hi

I need to write my VCP before the end of the month.

I have attended the class, but am not confident enough to write yet.

Could anyone provide some pointers please.

Thanks

Hi

Let me sum it up for you

As other people mentioned, I don’t think you can attend class and then go pass exam with no experience.

Some of the questions I got are really, you had to be in the situation before to know the answer.

I worked through the blue print link and physically done the configuration steps in my LAB.

Here is what I did

Blue print:

Tips:

-          Know the detailed settings and differences between vSS and vDS. Port groups, security setting, binding policies, requirements, etc.

-          Know resource allocations. Limits, shares, reservations, expandable, etc

-          Know VDR install and components

-          Lots of troubleshooting questions, Mem, CPU, Network. All around contention and setting that would solve problem

Please award points for helpful/correct answers Smiley Happy
