VSICM55 - Slide 06-33 - Configuring an NFS Datastore



Wrong:

The slide notes ordered list instructing you how to create an NFS datastore is either messed up between steps required in the vSphere Client and those in the vSphere Web Client or - in a case - completely wrong:

  1. Click the Storage link in your host’s Manage tab.
  2. Click the Add Storage link and select Network File System as the storage type.
  3. Enter the properties of your NFS datastore.
Correct:

As the "VMware vSphere: Install, Configure, Manage [V5.5]" course has transitioned to the vSphere Web Client GUI, the above list of tasks should be corrected as follows to describe the actual steps in the Web Client:

  1. Click the Datastore link in your host’s Related Objects tab.
  2. Click the Create a new datastore link and select Network File System as the storage type.
  3. Enter the properties of your NFS datastore.

VSICM51 - Slide 08-15 - VDP Architecture



1. Wrong:

VDP appliance requirements description, in the slide notes, shows an incoherent statement:

Proper planning should be performed to help ensure that proper sizing and additional storage capacity cannot be added after the appliance is deployed.
1. Correct:

A correct statement, instead, should have read something like:

Proper planning should be performed to help ensure proper sizing as additional storage capacity cannot be added after the appliance is deployed.
1. Info:

For more details, see the "vSphere Data Protection Administration" guide, "Installing and Configuring vSphere Data Protection" chapter, "System Requirements" paragraph.

1. Room for improvement:

It should be also nice to remind that: "The additional disk space required that is above the usable capacity of the appliance is for creating and managing checkpoints.

vSphere Data Protection 5.1 Administration Guide.



2. Wrong:

While explaining the integrity check process, slide notes state that:

Data Recovery completes an incremental integrity check every 24 hours.
2. Correct:

vSphere Data Recovery was the name of the appliance offered up until vSphere 5.0; in vSphere 5.1 - instead - the new appliance name is vSphere Data Protection.
