vSphere 7 is available for academic and research use!
Kivuto has updated all portals with vSphere 7 for use in your labs, research centers and proof of concepts.
Check out your OnTheHub webstore to access the software.
Regarding vpshere 7, on Kivuto (onTheHub) there are lectures, lab exercises, PPTs but where I can find
lab setup guide to prepare students enviroment? (I mean materials, templates ecc,,,)
Thank you for reaching out.
We are working on the lab setup guide and files, but were wondering if it makes sense to provide it.
From the content development team we got the input that replicating the labs would be a difficult task requiring powerful hardware.
If you would like to have a go at it, please reach out to me so I can provide you the links to the required files and you can let us know your experience on replicating the labs.
I'll PM you my email address at VMware.
Please chime in on this topic if you are interested in replicating the vSphere 7 course labs in your institution, so we can make an informed decision about offering the files in the Kivuto web portals or not.
Access to the lab setup guides would be useful.
In the past we have used the NDG supplied labs as well as a custom built topology using the lab build guides that we used to have access to.
I was able to replicate the vSphere 6.0 and 6.5 topologies to match the official ICM lab manuals.
I have found that some students get more benefit from building the lab out step by step as they have to make it work and troubleshoot any mis-configurations along the way.
In one of my Bachelors classes; students have to create an entire NetLab topology from scratch and make a working lab environment as part of a project.
Would be nice to be able to match the lab manual in the ICM 7.0 course and see how it goes.
We have around 20 hosts here, so have sufficient hardware to accommodate that sort of build.
Box Hill Institute.
On it David. Keep an eye out for the email with the download links ...
The lab setup guide would be very useful. I agree with @Lonati and @dmbrooks . I teach 2 course VMware vSphere: ICM v6.7 and O&S v6.7. I have also built a laboratory environment with my students.
Students were very satisfied with the practical part (building a lab on their own) what they expressed it in the questionnaires after the training. Creating a laboratory environment construction manual for ICM v7 and O&S v7 courses would be very helpful for next classes with my students.
The Lab Setup Files and Lab Setup Guide should now be available in all Kivuto Portals.
You can find them under the teaching resources tab and then under the vSphere 7 courses.

Hope this helps,
Three months ago I was looking for a Lab Setup Guide, but it wasn't shared then and now it's available. I have downloaded them and I am reading right now. @VincentHerreman , you are doing a good job. Thank you very much
Last summer students in my ICM 6.7 class were instructed to order VMware vSphere Install, Configure, Manage V6.7 - eText from Kivuto. This summer I plan to teach ICM 7.0.
I just logged in to Kivuto using my faculty account and noticed that there was no eText for ICM 7.0 available for students to order. Free lecture manual and PPT Course Materials were available for faculty/staff.
My questions are:
1. Is there an e-Text or lecture manual available for ICM 7.0 in the student accounts on Kivuto?
2. If there is no eText for ICM 7.0, can we distribute the lecture manual to students? The PPT slides do not include the notes available in the lecture manual.
Many thanks for your message.
I have good news for you! The eText are still available.
We've removed the eText tab from the faculty area as some teachers got confused what the difference was between the teaching materials (powerpoints) and the eText (that come at a cost)
You'll still be able to order the eText for your students from the students tab:
But my advice would be that you bulk order eText for your students through the admin section of the Kivuto portal
Hoping this helps,
I was wondering if anyone was missing the configuration for the iSCSI part of the VITA setup for ICMOS 7? It looks as though I have all other parts of the setup guide but am missing that section. Any help is appreciated, new VITA instructor, newish anyway
*edit - found the missing pages
But, if anyone has helpful advice for the newish instructor...🤓
Thank you for your question. (And I understand that you've found them by now)
Here is the response we've received from our lab experts:
It seems the missing “iSCSI parts” is the FreeNAS.
The link to download FreeNas is https://download.freenas.org/11.3/STABLE/U1/x64/
You can download the iso image from there.
Hope this helps,
