VMware vRealize Automation: Install, Configure, Manage [V7.6] – On Demand (EDU-VRAICM76-EL)

During this course, equivalent to five days of training, you focus on installing, configuring, and managing VMware vRealize® Automation™. You learn about the configuration and use of the vRealize Automation platform, including self-service provisioning and the creation of catalog services that include predefined virtual machines, software components, and on-demand VMware NSX® networks. This course also covers interfacing vRealize Automation with other systems using VMware vRealize® Orchestrator™ to leverage workflows, creating approval cycles, and managing machine lifecycles to conserve resources. In addition, you will better understand and know how to achieve the benefits of automation as a component of the software-defined data center.
 
This course is also available in an Instructor-Led Training (ILT) format.

  • Integrate vRealize Automation with third-party products
 
Intended Audience
  • Experienced system administrators and system integrators responsible for designing and implementing vRealize Automation
 
Prerequisites
This course requires completion of one of the following courses:
  • VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.x]
  • VMware vSphere: Fast Track [V6.x]
 
Experience with working at the command line is helpful.
 
This course requires that a student be able to perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:
  • Create VMware vCenter Server® objects, such as data centers and folders
  • Create a virtual machine using a wizard or a template
  • Modify a virtual machine’s hardware
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® vMotion®
  • Migrate a virtual machine with VMware vSphere® Storage vMotion®
  • Configure and manage a vSphere DRS cluster with resource pools.
  • Configure and manage a VMware vSphere® High Availability cluster.
If you cannot perform all of these tasks, VMware recommends that you complete one of the prerequisite courses before enrolling in VMware vRealize Automation: Install, Configure, Manage.
