    Thanks, was hoping for it

    As for my progress - pathetic, not getting anywhere .. Never been so busy at work with ESX upgrades.

    To make sure it is free, I re-scheduled now for August .. I am sure I will be re-scheduling again to bring it forward - but that is just to give me more head room ...

    Edit: I presume the scheduled exam was 5.x so I will be tested on 5.5 automatically ?

    No, noone has scheduled for VDCA550 yet, you'll need to change it with PearsonVue.

    You said you were a little light on AutoDeploy, just lab up on it and go sit the exam mate. It's easier than you think! - just got to do all those tasks at speed, that's all. You'll blitz through them, no kidding.
    VCDX: DCV - Round 2 rescheduled (by VMware) for December 2017.

    vSphere Clusters (production, not lab) coming out of my ears lol .. I suppose its a good thing .. Sorry, been a "bit" light on my updates here, intended to post a lot more, but at 12-14hr shift and 4hr commute each day - I really .. sod it, call it as it is - can't be *bleep*

    Anyway, trashed my 5.5 lab and started from scratch with 5.1, exam will be 5.1 so may as well stick with it.

    Thankfully the official VMware Press VCAP5-DCA book became available earlier than expected, so that is on its way. Although with fast shipping it was $80 (arf) ...

    Amazon.com: VCAP5-DCA Official Cert Guide: VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5- Data Center Administration (VMware Press Certification) (9780789753236): Steve Baca, John B. Davis: Books

    Next week I need to sit some nonsense VMware accreditations for cloud partners, latest VSP, VTSP, VSOP, lots of Vs .. that's gonna cut into my time

    DCA comes in two flavors: 5.0 (DCA510) and 5.5 (DCA550).

    You will be much much much much better off taking the DCA550. Or so a little bird told me.

    Oh I know all that ... but I won't be able to study for the additional topics on time .. I only JUST lost out on a great job opportunity which had the VCAP as requirement, so can't really delay much further ...

    At least both are technically VCAP5-DCA, 510 or 550 doesn't matter. I am working with both versions on daily basis so I will decide nearer the time whether I reschedule or not (change version that is).

    But so far, I think, personally I am better of with 5.0 .. 5.5 must be nice though, having 5 hosts rather than 2 .. less chance to kick yourself out
