Overview/Description
VMware vCenter Server provides several built-in options that allow you to manage your environment. Alarms can be created to notify when something goes wrong, scheduled tasks allow various tasks to be performed in an automated way, events allow the administrator to view what's happening in the vCenter Server environment, maps give a visual topology of what's happening, and the customization specifications manager allows quicker deployments in an automated way. This course concentrates on the tools used, and day-to-day management and maintenance of the vCenter Server.
