VCAP5-DCA: Objective 2.2

 

This one is exactly the same as the VCAP4-DCA objective so it is all about reviewing it all and making sure you understand what each part does and how to do it. Personally i think this is another one you just need to practice doing in your lab and watch the videos to refresh your understanding.

Configure and Maintain VLANs, PVLANs and VLAN Settings

Knowledge

  • Identify types of VLANs and PVLANs

Using the vSphere Distributed Virtual Switch (dvswitch) lesson from the VMware vSphere 5 Training course from Trainsignal

Skills and Abilities

  • Determine use cases for and configure VLAN Trunking

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1004252 VLAN trunking example and reasons of why you would do/use it

  • Determine use cases for and configure PVLANs

http://kb.vmware.com/kb/1010691This gives a great overview of PVLANS and what each setting would be used for.

  • Use command line tools to troubleshoot and identify VLAN configurations

Covered in Objective 2.1 and will be covered better in Objective 6

 

Chris Wahl has done a brilliant overview of Private VLANS in his blog posting Understanding vSphere Private VLANs For Fun and Profit and also did a brilliant breakdown of the whole objective in the vBrownbag he did which i would highly recommend
