    Yeap. Didn't work for 5.5, but that's ok, I rebuilt last weekend. I think I'll ned to rebuild the entire environment, having more errors occurring.

    Essendon, Shouldn't you be the one with the DCD giving JJ the solution to DvS layout? :P

    @kj0 - thanks for letting me know that this doesnt work with 5.5 . More incentive to get this PernixData blog finished! Might get the chance to demo this at work too.

    Yeah I saw the question when I had had a few beers and I thought I'd look more into it later and by that time QHalo had jumped in already. Besides, sometimes you got to let the kids learn on their own

    Rubbish ... I am lead VMware Engineer here responsible for upgrading vCloud Director in 5 sites. This is taking most of my time. I leave the house at 6am and am usually not back until 9pm .. not much time left to study anything ... Now I also have to get my head around VXLANs so needless to say, working life is "doing my head in" at the moment

    Honestly, I am pretty sure that you already know a lot of the blueprint... Its a matter of going over the stuff that you've haven't touched much, you can probably cut down your time. But, finding the time is tough indeed!

    At some point I was pretty much in the same situation, had to use weekends to prep, was tough.

    Yea, weekends are the only way to go but because me and my wife are out of the house all week, so much "normal human" stuff is to be done over the weekend that all I care at that stage is a nice Single Malt Scotch

    Took this Friday off to hit the books though ...

    That Single Malt Scotch should give you all the boost you need

    wow, been a while since I updated this one. I am very busy at work. Thankfully it is VMware related, although not quite helpful in getting the DCA, more like the VCAP-CLOUD. But nonetheless I have learned a ton. I am in the process of upgrading three vCloud Director sites and whilst it seems simple, it isn't. It would be if the documentation would be accurate but heh, where there is a lab, there is a way, right.

    I even thought I understand how vShield Edge and NAT and Firewalling works, but I clearly didn't. Even the VMware support monkey needed conformation from their engineering, so that's a bonus (did you know that firewalling comes before NAT when working with Edge?).

    Either way, not related but like I say, I learned a lot so it will help one way or another. I did however finish the Advanced Series on Pluralsight and the 'Mastering vSphere 5.5 book.

    At the same time my lab grew a few Edges lol. I ended up with three, not even counting the vCloud ones. I must say, if you need some routing in your lab, Edge is quick and dirty.

    Sounds like great practice for VCAP-CIA! iI covers 5.1 on 5.1, but should be close enough!

    Maybe not VCAP-CIA, but booked the VCP-IAAS (VCPVCD510) for April 1st. Nice way to renew my VCPs I suppose

    study up on the 1.5 networking! I'd go over all the "what's new in 5.1" stuff I can find and reverse-engineer it.

    Errr whoops - somehow I thought April 1st is next month, as in, the one after next .. Now I see its in a weeks time .. I guess that leaves me with not much time to prepare for the VCP-CLOUD (well, IAAS anyway).

    Someone's found a book with some scenarios that mirror the actual exam. Might be worth checking out bud. But your good enough for the DCA anyway, probably wouldnt need an additional resource!

    Looks like it is. Have you run through it already?

    You could also try Test Track which includes sixteen scenarios similar to what you'd see on the exam, but you RDP into a very similar environment to solve the scenarios.

    Includes scoring, reset and shutdown scripts for limited self-service. Hit me up on Twitter to request a 4-hour window.

    Joshua?

    @TS: I'd definitely go with the test track, very nice testing mechanism.
