Be careful as to which vSphere version any documents, books, or practice questions refer to:
VCP510 is based on vSphere 5.0/5.1
VCP550 is based on vSphere 5.5
So, if you refer to something that was written for VCP510 and it either hasn't been updated at all, or it's been updated poorly, then the answer in the VCP550 exam might be different.
I would recommend you validate against the vSphere 5.5 product documentation, that's what VMware would have done when writing the VCP550 exam items.
Thanks for your reply,
So i guess the right anwser on the exam for 5.5 would be that tps is disabled by default right?
Regarding the question about diskspace of the vcenter appliance my issue is that the documentation on the vmware website says:
vCenter Server Appliance 5.0.x / 5.1.x:
- At least 7 GB
- A maximum of 80 GB
vCenter Server Appliance 5.5.x:
- At least 70 GB
- A maximum of 125 GB
But the vcenter appliance (version 5.5) only takes 5.38 GB in my enviroment so why would it require 70 GB?
It is thin provisioned but when it would be tick it would require 125GB by default
So your original question, I'm guessing the book vendor has a typo. The first answer is likely 70.
As for TPS, since that is 5.5 P4 it wouldn't apply to the exam. We only test on "vanilla" versions (far too many patches and updates for us to keep the exam at those versions).
As for the sizing difference, it relates to the number of VMs/Hosts you'd have for your environment. it is thin-provisioned but if you -- when doing the initial install -- choose the larger environment and have an environment that active, you could easily fill the 125GB.
And we do double-check the answers are correct on the exam.
