VSICM55 - Slide 11-06 - DRS Cluster Settings: Automation Level



Wrong:

While describing how to enable vSphere DRS, the first paragraph in the slide notes states:

Type a descriptive name for your cluster and select the Turn On VMware DRS check box.
Correct:

In the vSphere Web Client, shown in the slide graphic, the mentioned check box is actually called Turn On only and is available within the DRS section.

VSICM55 - Slide 07-68 - vApp Characteristics



1. Wrong:

While providing instructions about how to edit vApp settings, slide notes keep referring to the vSphere Client GUI, but slide graphic is showing the vSphere Web Client. Hence all the references to contextual menu items and wizard sections are not in line with what shown. Following, a list of bulleted list items with mistakes:

To create a vApp

  • Run the New vApp wizard (File > New > vApp).

 

  • Resource allocation: Determines how CPU and memory should be allocated for the vApp. Resource allocation settings are discussed in a later module.

 

  • Fixed, where IP addresses are manually configured

 

  • Advanced settings: Product and vendor information, custom properties, and IP allocation
1. Correct:

In order to adhere to the GUI shown in the slide graphic, the above list items should be changed as follows:

To create a vApp

  • Run the New vApp wizard (All vCenter Actions > New vApp).

 

  • CPU resources / Memory resources: Determines how CPU and memory should be allocated for the vApp. Resource allocation settings are discussed in a later module.

 

  • Static, where IP addresses are manually configured

 

  • Authoring: Product and vendor information, custom properties, and IP allocation

VSICM55 - Slide 07-24 - Virtual Machine Options



1. Room for improvement:

The first sentence in the slide notes states:

The VM Options tab in the Virtual Machine Properties dialog box enables you to change a virtual machine’s options.
1. Correct:

Even if the wizard dialog box name mentioned above is conceptually tolerable, the actual name in the vSphere Web Client is instead Edit Settings, as it can be seen in the slide graphic.



2. Info:

Some vSphere 5.x releases of Storage vMotion do not rename virtual machine files following a successful migration. The virtual machine folder name changes, but the virtual machine file names don't.

This issue is resolved in:

  • VMware vCenter Server 5.0 Update 2
  • VMware vCenter Server 5.1 Update 1
