VMCE - writeup! https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/127391/vmce-writeup Tue, 06 Jun 2017 14:07:24 +0000 Virtualization Certifications SteveLavoie 127391@/discussions
Training was ok and honest but not awesome. It covered the required material.

I took the test after the 2 days training, but in those kind of convention, there is so much to do and to drink lol. So I failed my exam (65%, 70% required on 50 questions). The exam was not that though but it covered all part of the Veeam suite of software.

Last week, less than 2 week after my first try, I wrote sucessfully the exam with 82%. The exam seem a tad tougher than first time, but it worked.

Now I am VMCE, and eventually I will get the VMCA (Veeam Architect cert).]]>
74-409 Passed https://community.infosecinstitute.com/discussion/101082/74-409-passed Sun, 08 Jun 2014 11:13:00 +0000 Virtualization Certifications jleydon82 101082@/discussions
It is great to understand what tools to use in the best situation for updating images, deployment, and migration (the migration I think most have trouble with on what tools to use and the steps you need).

My study material was:
- Free Microsoft Virtual Academy Hyper-V 2012 R2 and System Center training. * This was the bulk of what I did. I tried to only do an hour at a time since after an hour I tended to just not fully comprehending what they were saying. Afterwards I pulled up the slides that are provided and looked up each item listed to get a better understanding on their slide notes.
- Veeam offers a free study guide on this exam I used: Free Study Guide for Microsoft Exam 74-409
- Used VMware Workstation on my local computer to run a nested environment

I tried to do this completely free and the only item with a cost associated is VMware workstation which I already owned. I used this to create a nested virtual environment similar to what I do with ESXi. This way you can properly simulate having multiple Hyper-V hosts. With this I was able to install older versions of Server and setup clustering followed by migrations to 2012 R2. It worked great and ended up being completely free with great experience gained and I got the exam for the free promo when it was available.]]>
