    vSphere 6.5 exam objective "Configure/View/Print/Export resource maps"

    lvaibhavt Hot Shot

      Hi All,

       

      for VMware vSphere 6.5 Foundations Exam, there is an exam objective which talks about " Configure/View/Print/Export resource maps "

       

      I was going through url https://mylearn.vmware.com/lcms/web/portals/certification/exam_prep_guides/Exam_Prep_Guide_2V0-602.pdf

       

      I am not sure what objective "" Configure/View/Print/Export resource maps "" is talking about.

       

      Any suggestions ??

       

       

      Thanks

          Resource maps refers to (I believe) a now-extinct feature that was only accessible in the legacy C#/Thick/Fat client used to access vCenter Server up until 6.5 Update 1. These maps showed a graphical view of various vSphere resources and how they interrelated, not unlike how vRealize Operations Manager shows its Environment tree. I don't think this is an objective you should worry about too much. It most likely should have been removed from the exam blueprint as a carry-over from the 6.0 and earlier days.

            Hello lvaibhavt

             

             

            Yes, both map topics refer to old vSphere Client features - they were actually pretty useful for infrastructure layout planning and checking connections.

            These shouldn't be in the 6.5 Blueprint (and certainly can be ignored as potential questions) as the old client is deprecated and not available with vCenter 6.5 - I will contact a colleague in VMware vTSU with aim to remediate this document.
