I passed my VCP 6 – DCV Delta Exam today! Here are some of my notes around it.
- The test was 65 Questions and you have 75 Minutes to complete it, I had about 30 Mins left.
- I did get several configuration maximum questions. The questions were more around applying the known maximums vs. just memorizing the data points.
- I did get some Virtual SAN , vROPS, and LOTS of questions around Lockdown mode
- Know your licensing Models and what features belong to what.
- Lots of questions around iSCSI, FCoE, APD, Path loss, PSP Modes
- Know all about SSO, Authentication types, and don’t forget those newer features like Content Library
- Make sure you review vSphere Replication and those always fun resource pools
- Know your command line tools – esxcli and the like
- In general, questions seem to be straight to the point vs. lengthy paragraphs
- I followed the blueprint, read my documents, and made sure I read every ‘Note’ section

Back in the day when I lead the Phoenix VMUG the other leaders and I put our attention on the quality of the event vs. trying to drive attendance. We knew producing quality events would lead to more users wanting to attend. Man were we right. Our first VMUG in 2008 drew a crowd of 65, not too bad for our first showing. However we worked hard, listened to our attendees, and in just 2 years time we built an event framework to support 300-500 users and 20+ sponsors ever quarter! The framework we created was so successful it was key in creating the framework for the VMUG UserCon.
Flash forward to October-30-2015 and one of the most EPIC VMUG events ever is about to take place in Phoenix! I never use the word epic unless there is something absolutely stunning. Example – Me doing a selfie drinking a soda is not epic. However – when VMware COO Carl Eschenbach, Principal Architect Rawlinson Rivera, Senior Technical Marketing Architect Doug Baer, Chris Wahl, Josh Atwell, Instructor lead labs, 30+ Partners/Sponsors, multiple breakout sessions, and cocktails at the end of the day come to your VMUG, then this is EPIC!
I know that was quite a bit to take in but like it said EPIC, for now I’d recommend registering for the event and downloading the VMUG UserCon App.
