Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure new VMware ESXi hosts and a new VMware vCenter Server. First, you will configure the management network interfaces on multiple ESXi hosts, and then you will create a virtual datacenter and add the ESXi hosts to be managed. Next, you will join a vCenter server to an Active Directory domain, and then you will configure the identity source and assign an Active Directory user to the vCenter server Administrators group. Finally, you will create a file-based backup of a vCenter server, and then you will configure networking and storage on the hosts. Note: Once you begin a challenge you will not be able to pause, save, or return to your progress. Please ensure you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge before you start.
