Course Description

In this challenge, you will configure a VMware vCenter Server Appliance. First, you will create a file-based backup of the vCenter server, and then you will configure the vCenter server to forward logs to a remote syslog server. Next, you will configure the vCenter server to synchronize time settings with a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, and then you will configure the password expiration settings. Finally, you will enable SSH connectivity to a vCenter server, and then you will test the connection. 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.
