After new year Celebrations (lot of drinks right 😉 ) your Manager called for a meeting to discuss about “Customer VMware Upgrade Project” – This is critical project and your role is to give step by step documents to support team. Where to find such documents? Searching in the Internet for those documents? You found couple of good blogs BUT – Are they approved/verified by VMware?? Not sure of that but still you need to provide step by step documents. To save your day – VMware has a tool that you can use to refresh knowledge on the VMware solutions which is VMware Feature Walkthrough provides technical overviews and step-by-step guidance for installing, configuring and managing their solutions. Each walk through includes screen shots with relevant steps highlighted and text explaining the process which can be sent to your support team to create required documents.
The Feature Walkthrough site is a great for stepping through a self-paced demo of a particular VMware product or feature. They made the site mobile friendly, so go ahead and open it on your tablet and take it into the data center to guide your proof-of-concept install of the products you saw or heard about VMware products, or to simply refresh your memory on just where exactly that checkbox to enable a product feature is. Use it to show your boss that cool feature you saw at VMworld, or to familiarize yourself with the basics of a product before you jump into a live Hands-on Lab environment. VMware always adding new walk-throughs the vSphere with Operations Management (vSOM) series of Walkthroughs was recently refreshed, and NSX and Virtual SAN walkthroughs are now available.
