These labs provide the hands-on experience needed to gain advanced skills for configuring and maintaining a highly available and scalable virtual infrastructure.
The NETLAB+ VMware vSphere O&S pod is used to support the VMware vSphere O&S labs.
VMware vSphere O&S 6 Labs and VMs have been updated, see the release notes for details. Customers who installed the previous version on their NETLAB+ system(s) will need to request updated OVAs from CSSIA for the VMware O&S Pod.
These labs are also available as an NDG Online hosted lab offering.
Please review the content-specific requirements for VMware vSphere Optimize & Scale labs.
Please be aware that VCP6-DCV Certification requires training in addition to VMware vSphere Optimize & Scale Version 6. The most common path for new learners to achieve the VCP6-DCV certification will be: VMware vSphere Optimize & Scale Version 6 and VMware vSphere Optimize and Scale 6 (more information on O&S 6 coming soon).
See details regarding the steps below of VMware's requirements for the VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization (VCP6-DCV)

Please note that vSphere V5.x courses WILL NOT satisfy the VCP6-DCV certification upon passing the exam.

Always select the correct lab exercise for the lab being performed. Students or teams should schedule the correct lab exercise from the catalog. NETLAB+ will only show those labs for which the required pod type is available. A lab that works on different pod types may appear more than once if your system is so equipped. Instructors should select the correct lab from the Exercise tab during instructor-led lab reservations. This can be done as many times as needed during the reservation.
