Know how to add new storage with all the possible combinations (Disk/LUN and all the required steps and NFS and all the required steps) What are the types of schemes when making LUN selections and how they work and / or get implemented Know CLI (including ALL the options) for vmware-cmd, esxcfg-firewall, mgmt-vmware and esxcli TheDopey from Unknown – 01 03 2011, 7:47 AM Report Spam 2.Can DRS and FT operate in the same environment?

No FT required DRS to be desabled.3.CLI required to restart VMware vCenter and Host communications and processes for example hostd, etc.Restarting hostd (mgmt-vmware) on ESX hosts restarts hosted virtual machines where virtual machine Startup/Shutdown is enabled TheDopey from India – 01 02 2011, 6:21 PM Report Spam http://www.ziddu.com/download/13231143/vcp-410v9.1.updated.2010.12.25.545q.pdf.html TheDopey from India – 01 02 2011, 4:08 PM Report Spam @ AM_VZ . can you specify some storage scenario which were asked…"Storage is killing me" . . appreciate it.

Its a real help "A free lunch is only found in mousetraps." AM_VZ from United States – 01 01 2011, 8:57 PM Report Spam I passed VCP410 exam with more than 400 points this past week. I spent almost 4 months studying for this exam with the following schedule: Week days 2 to 3 hours everyday and weekends 10 to 12 hours Saturdays and Sundays. PLEASE study VMware documentation according to the latest blue print document and as much as possible! Make sure to cover ALL 8 chapters indicated in the blue print. YOU WILL GET QUESTIONS about pretty much everything! Dumps are a good source of reference for the exam but IT IS NOT enough to just memorize them and take the exam…it is guaranteed YOU WILL NOT PASS THIS EXAM IF YOU JUST DO SO! HA: Know exactly what happens when VM need to be restarted (Host on maintenance mode, admission control policies, etc). Resource Pool Administrator and VM power user can and can't do (Roles). CLI required to restart VMware vCenter and Host communications and processes for example hostd, etc. There are close to 10 questions about DRS and performance. Know how to set it up, what to do when performance issues occur (reservation, shares and limits). Minimum hardware requirements for vCenter and ESX and their default values. Know FT inside and out. What causes a Primary VM not to be protected? Can DRS and FT operate in the same environment? Requirements for FT to work properly, etc. DPM and support technologies (WOL, etc). What is in the Configuration > Security Profile section and CLI required to manage it!. RDM and how to use it. vDS and VSS and how devices move between them..also where to apply policies, etc. FINALLY I used an old server (upgraded BIOS for VT and Memory Protection…know what these two are) and install ESX and ESXi multiple times (typical and custom) and you’ll get questions about it. Also installed vCenter in the same system multiple times and helped me to understand installation and other related items for the exam.
