    Sorry to hear Dave. Paying for the SFO defense out of pocket would have been pretty pricey. Heard the SF area hotels are running around $600 per night due to demand. I believe you can still submit your design for one of the international dates, but defer your defense to a later one. May give you additional chances for getting your technical review passed if needed.

    @meadIT,

    Thanks for the info. I'll have to look into deferring defense.

    Default Design

    I would love to take a look at the design Dave.
    Is it available at a Dropbox as suggested earlier?

    Need to start working on this again. Debating if I want to build a new design based on the new job. Also, so much to do with the new job, it'll be tough finding time to work on this.

    Crap. Applications are due 12/20. Need to stop goofing off and get serious. PEX is at SF this year.

    Good stuff, I am sure you can manage to put something together! If you need some peer reviews, I'll be happy to help!

    Hey Dave, are you able to tell what made the panel reject your design? Was it a lack of something or your design wasn't done the VCDX-way, though I'm sure it must have been a resounding success with your customer. Reason I ask is so I (and other folks here) tailor mine accordingly.

    On a side note, are you not able to submit the same design again after making the changes the panel would like to see like having lots of those "why's" the panel's after?

    @Essendon

    Mainly lack of detail. The big mistake I made is I wrote it like a customer facing design. I should have wrote it to pass a certification.

    You're allowed to resubmit a design after making changes. I chose to abandon the design because I didn't find it interesting.

    Thanks for the reply mate. You are right about them wanting the design the "VCDX way". The VCDX Bootcamp book provides some valuable insight into the panelists' way of thinking and it's quite different from the way one would write it for a customer.

    Great! Going with a new design or improving on the first one?

    New design. I have to do about 30-40% of VCDX prep work for something else.

    I must be a glutton for punishment. I'm thinking about picking up this thread again.

    Keep us in the loop if you do. This is one of things on my far future/possible list (have to finish my CCIE and get my mid level Vmware certs first).

    I got to talking to one of the guys on the VCDX panel at the VMUG, he gave me invaluable insight in the VCDX pursuit and what to do for the VCAP.

    I heard that for the VCDX-NV they were basically giving the cert away to promote it, they change it cause they weren't yielding people with the appropriate skillz. Like I guess if your a CCIE you be just handed a VCDX-NV and that just wasn't the case...so VMware change it...

    VMware isn't as 'easy' as most think... it's defiantly not something in the advanced levels you can just read a book and be an expert. - I mean you can, but realistically how good would that person be?

    No. The cert path for the 1st batch were different, but it wasn't cakewalk.

    Indeed, Tim was talking about it. It was a learning experience for VMware specifically, now it's harder he said.

    When the first 20 or so batch of VCDX:NVs came out, I was like - what the hell, they seem to have handed it out - there was even a long Twitter thread about it. This is just not true, it would've devalued the cert. The first batch, like Dave said, became VCDX:NVs slightly differently than you normally would, but it wasnt easy, that's for sure.

    I'm working towards more management/soft skills roles. There is an interesting design I might be doing for a customer. We'll see how it all works out. If I end up with fictitious design, there's no way I'm working on it by myself.

    Finally found a really cool design. Problem is that it's vSphere 6.

    I heard you could submit a vSphere 6 based design for VCDX5. Run it past Colotti to confirm mate.

    When the frig are they coming out?

    Followed the advise on many to do VCP6-DCV with the plan to do VCIX, but VMware is closed lipped on a ETA of when the friggin' exam is going to be released. So I'm perplexed if I should just do VCAP or twittle my thumbs....

    Taking the VCP6 in a few weeks, the book from Nick Marshall is pretty easy, reading it is stupid easy since I deal with this stuff daily; it's funny how a year ago I thought this stuff was hard.
