Hello. My name is Dean Pompilio. Welcome to Cyberia.
I'll be your subject matter Expert for
a classical will be exploring the installation, configuration and management of the M, where
this course has a lot of good labs and we'll have some discussion
and go through a bunch of different areas that are going to be useful as an administrator in the V M. Where world.
So we'll start off with looking at the *** I host
how to set up its networking, how to set up the storage.
We'll also be creating, configuring and managing virtual machines
and seeing how that fits in with the virtual networking
and how the underlying storage is utilized in that context.
trying different ways to get access to the virtual infrastructure.
Using the V spare client or using the Web client
even sssh is an option.
And we'll also be looking at the some of the business continuity solutions that are available
as part of the suite of products that bm where provides.
And lastly, we'll be wrapping up with,
looking at some of the command line interface options
and how the M O Re center server is installed as well as the SX, I host itself.
So these were enterprise. The version that's being used for this class is version 5.5 update to.
So, if you are following along with your own software, make sure you realize that the screen shots may look a little bit different than the tools mostly looked the same.
But there might be some minor differences, so keep that in mind.
And this is a enterprise plus configuration, which is the top level of licensing that VM Where's provides
this means that all of the futures
that are normally offered are enabled for this environment.
You can easily download a trial version,
and get access to all the features for 60 days.
Keep in mind that the SX I software for your host actually is free if you use it in a standalone configuration.
So that's a really wonderful thing to have available, since you can do a lot of things with just the host by itself
and not have to invest any money
in order to advance your skills and expertise in your education.
the Vienna, where Enterprise
plus environment that I mentioned
supports a lot of different functions and futures, for instance, we can do things like the motion,
which is moving ah, virtual machine from one host to another. We can also do storage the emotion where we move
virtual machines files. They're stored in a data store from one data store to another.
We can also do things like explore the distributive resource scheduler,
which lets you load balance the workload of E EMS on different hosts that all together in a cluster.
And so this gives you a lot of flexibility as an administrator
to manage a dynamically changing environment,
and you can modify your resource allocation based on the needs of your organization.
when the first things will look at
in our introduction to virtual ization
is a little bit about how the
physical infrastructure actually appears to your
not only to the administrator, but from the hardware perspective and the virtual perspective.
So if you think about a virtual machine
as having a few different layers,
we have applications,
and then we have our operating system,
and various different operating systems are supported, as we'll see a little bit later,
and then we have the physical host.
So all of these Compris.
overall components, if you will.
And the way that we can allow this intercom interconnection and interconnectivity is by having connections from the physical host is a different color Here.
I'll use green here for a, uh,
network interface card or Nick
and I can have multiple
in a very simple configuration,
I can see that I've got virtualized applications running on a guest OS,
and it's called a guest at West because it's,
is, ah, a guest on the host up operating system. The host is actually running the SX operating system,
so because it's running on top of that, we can have inter host communications.
we can have connections to the Internet
or intranet as well.
In addition to the ER,
the configuration that you see here a basic configuration
it was a small lie for intranet.
Then I can we'll see how this works with attaching different types of storage
