Last month, I was happy to successfully pass my VCAP-DCV 6.5 Design exam that has also validated my VCIX-DCV 2019.
The exam was very challenging and tough from my point of view but I would say it was also fair. All the questions were from topics that you can find in the exam blueprint. So you know exactly what you have to study before taking the exam.
But I have to be honest with you, I didn’t pass on my first attempt. The thing is that I rushed to fast to take the exam thinking that I was ready but I wasn’t.
Hello the VMware community. VMware has released yesterday a small but important update to vRA 8.
So what’s new?
Well, in the very first release of vRA 8, it wasn’t possible to upgrade from vRA version 7.x yet. it was just a matter of time before VMware brings up the functionality.
But from now on, you can upgrade your existing vRA 7.5 or 7.6 environment to 8.0.1. VMware also says that a migration is possible which would create a brand new vRA 8 platform and then migrate all the configuration from an existing vRA 7.x environment.
I can imagine that a lot of people was waiting for this feature which is quite important and especially when it comes to a major release of a product. So guys let’s go to our homelabs or test environment and do some upgrades.
VMware also developed a new migration assessment tool to collect “offline” data from your vRA, vRO or external vRO source environment. Then you can upload the collected data during the assessment phase of your new installation.
The new features below are part of vRA 8.0.1 as well:
Blueprint Properties Editor
API enhancements for Networking and Deployments
Extensibility VA and ABX resiliency enhancements
vRO based catalog services now support array/number as inputs parameters
