We are building a .net core application for VM and container orchestration. The app is already compatible with Openstack and Kubernetes and would like to incorporate compatibility with ESXi hosts. Where is the best place to get started?

and whether you're using thin or thick provisioning
rnelson0  2021-12-01 06:48:52 PST
that's going to wildly vary based on your guest OS, your in-guest workload, and your storage backend.

Hi yall! I'm developing using the govmomi vlsm GlobalObjectManager api and was wondering if there was a way for me to tag snapshots. I attempted to use the `UpdateMetadata` operation but that does not seem to work for snapshots. I would like to both tag and list snapshots by tag. Let me know what your suggestions are to support such functionality.

you have a bout 3-6 minutes per task to configure if you do the math :slightly_smiling_face: so super complex configurations for every tiny knob simply cant be part of the exam :wink:
only97wish  2021-11-23 03:53:49 PST
Thank you
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:48:18 PST
the A in the exam stands for Advanced features not necessarily advcanced knowledge required :wink:
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:47:46 PST
optimize and scale together with an ICM refresher or the typical VMworld hands on labs for vSphere and vSAN get you covered quite well for the exam
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:47:13 PST
optimize and scale covers more topics relevant to the exam in terms of scoring opportunities and therefore a wider array of points making your success chances higher
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:46:47 PST
the exam consists of so much more than just troubleshooting, that a dedicated course for this is usually not time well spent if you have to choose between your options
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:46:20 PST
if you dont manage the troubleshooting task in the vcap you are not going to fail it
fescarosbuechs  2021-11-23 01:46:00 PST
optimze and scale will be better than the troubleshooting one
magneet_nl  2021-11-22 23:15:43 PST
o&s is vcp+ but not enough for a vcap troubleshooting might give the edge but I would really recommend checking out the various blog posts about the vcap dcv deploy even if they're for an older version and see what you're missing.
only97wish  2021-11-22 23:11:52 PST
I already have experiance and VCP certified but to get more knowledge I am planning for vcap-dc and found multiple courses for deploy
magneet_nl  2021-11-22 23:02:57 PST
I guess troubleshooting but nothing will prepare you as good as real world experience
only97wish  2021-11-22 22:55:31 PST
Hello, I am planning to take vcap-dc deploy but I found multiple course which one you recommend?

If anyone has some Terraform experience with VmWare NSX-T provider 3.6.5 , I’m having a challenge in understanding how to properly define a “import” statement to pull in a BGP interface information. The documentation example shows: > terraform import nsxt_policy_tier0_gateway_interface.interface1 _*GW-ID/LOCALE-SERVICE-ID/ID*_ in my case the NSX-T GUI has a copy path to clipboard and that results showing the interface in the format of > /infra/tier-0s/_*T0-GW001-DEV-EGV/locale-services/default/interfaces/rp-en01-fa*_
