VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage V6.2

Course Length: 5 Days

This comprehensive, fast-paced training course focuses on installing, configuring, and managing VMware NSX®. This course presents VMware NSX as a part of the software-defined data center. You will learn how to use logical switching in VMware NSX to virtualize your switching environment. The course also details logical routing to enable you to dynamically route between different virtual environments. And you will learn how to use gateway services, firewall configurations, and security services to help secure and optimize your VMware NSX environment.

Access to a software-defined data center environment is provided through hands-on labs to reinforce the skills and concepts presented in the course.

VMware Certified Professional 6 – Network Virtualization (VCP6-NV)

Achieving VCP6-NV certification validates your ability to install, configure and administer a vSphere data center virtualized with VMware NSX. Becoming a VCP6-NV also demonstrates your ability to create and administer a virtual network, including:

  • Layer 2 switching and both static and dynamic Layer 3 routing
  • Virtual network devices
  • Edge services such as DHCP, DNS and NAT

Getting Started for Those Not Yet VCP-Certified

If you are new to VMware network virtualization technology:

  1. Gain experience with NSX technologies (we recommend at least six months).
  2. Attend one of the following required qualifying courses:
    • VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0]
    • VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.1]
    • VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track [V6.0]
  3. Complete the following exams:
    • vSphere 6 Foundations Exam
    • VCP6-NV Exam

If you hold a qualifying Cisco certification (Note: This path is only available until January 31, 2016):

  1. Submit proof that you hold one of the following certifications:
    • CCNA Data Center
    • CCNA Routing and Switching
    • CCNP Data Center
    • CCNP Routing and Switching
    • CCIE Data Center
    • CCIE Routing and Switching
  2. Complete the following exams:
    • vSphere 6 Foundations Exam
    • VCP6-NV Exam

Migration Paths for Those Who Currently Hold a VCP Certification

If you hold a current VCP-NV certification for any solution track:

  • You will automatically be granted VCP6-NV certification status.

If you hold a current VCP certification for any other solution track:

  • Complete the VCP6-NV Exam.

If you hold an expired VCP certification for any solution track:

  1. Attend one of the following required qualifying courses:
    • VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.0]
    • VMware NSX: Install, Configure, Manage [V6.1]
    • VMware NSX for Internetworking Experts Fast Track [V6.0]
  2. Complete the following exams:
    • vSphere 6 Foundations Exam
