The rest of the week I’ll be attending the ‘VS-5.0-ACMT‘ training at XTG in Gouda, The Netherlands. XTG has gratuitously offered me a spot on the training! I’m looking forward to four days with Gabrie and Marcel van Os :-)

The training course is actually an XTG in-house developed four-day hands-on deep dive into VMware vSphere 4 and 5, focussing on configuration, management and troubleshooting. It’s aimed at VMware VCP-certified professionals looking for more in-depth knowledge on vSphere. The training covers a lot of command line tools for logging, network and storage configuration and vCenter Server management for monitoring and troubleshooting purposes.

Course Modules

  • Module 1: Introduction
  • Module 2: Logging and monitoring
  • Module 3: Networking
  • Module 4: Storage
  • Module 5: VMs
  • Module 6: vCenter Server and the VCSA
  • Module 7: HA & DRS
  • Module 8: Deployment (optional)


I will review the training on my blog during or shortly after the weekend when the experience is still fresh in my memory.
