  1. Yes true.. I am focusing on the basics and completing all necessary mock labs
  2. I have booked my exam already in April... can't reschedule .. Lets put my finger crossed..
  3. Many racks available in Dubai and Bangalore... grab it.. I booked lab in April.. can't change now
  4. Thanks UD... you been awesome ... when I first came to this forum in 2013 .. You have been very helpful Transition saw through this forum to practice : GNS3-->IOU --> WebIOU --> EVE-NG
  5. Seems there is a lot seats opened in Bangalore for CCIE Security. Do we see there is going to be update in Lab exam
  6. I was referring to VCAP-DCV 6.0 Deploy.. I already passed the exam and now I am VCIX-DCV 6.5 ( As I have given VCAP-6.5 Design earlier ) >> Feedback for VCAP-DCV 6.0 Delpy 1. The Lab was too slow, it test your patience really. 2. VMware should open internal centers as like Cisco does for CCIE 3. The question was pretty same as discussed earlier on this forum : Live Lab: You will manage the lab environment from the DC-RRAS virtual desktop. The console tab on the left side of the screen will provide console access to other management VMs if needed. Note: The web client may not automatically refresh quickly enough after certain operations are performed. It is recommended after longer operations or if you receive an unexpected condition, that you refresh the web client to ensure you have the most up to date information. The desktop provides all of the tools needed to manage your environment including: · vSphere Web Client · vSphere Client · Windows Remote Desktop Client · PuTTY (SSH Client) · PowerCLI · links to VMware documentation You may navigate through the questions using the numbers at the top of each page or the Table of Contents located under "More Options" -- the questions are mostly independent of one another, and all scoring is performed after the exam is finished. The Environment: Note: The equipment you are working with during this exam is designed to simulate an actual datacenter environment. As such: · Any changes you make during the exam will persist through each activity in the exam. Some activities are dependent on your successful completion of a previous activity. If you attempt an activity and do not see a prerequisite component for that activity in the environment, you may wish to examine your work on previous activities. You are allowed to go back at any time to a previous activity. · Implementation or administration of vSphere components may vary from administrator to administrator. If during the course of completing an activity you wish to make minor changes or additions to the environment to conform with how you feel the activity should be implemented or administered, you may do so. Keep in mind that any adjustments to the environment persist through all activities. Any changes that are out of the scope of the activity should be avoided. ·Some items involve troubleshooting and have thus been intentionally set up incorrectly. These problems are usually indicated in the description of the item, and will typically need to be resolved as part of the item. ·Required virtual machine names and their associated credentials are presented as part of each question if they vary from the standard. Standard credentials: vCenter server login: [email protected] Host and most appliance login: root all passwords: VMware1! unless otherwise specified. ********************************************************************************************** VSAN and VVOL storage have been provisioned in the QA environment for testing.
