The amount of VMware vSphere data center, cluster, storage, and network options available to an administrator is massive. Even specific features such as High Availability and the Distributed Resource Scheduler have a ton of different configuration settings provided to meet the needs of your specific virtualized workloads. It can be a challenge, however, to audit the settings and best understand why they were set in the first place—especially as other administrators join and leave your organization! Join VMware's Duncan Epping, author of the infamous Cluster Deep Dive series, along with Rubrik's Chris Wahl, PowerShell MVP and author of Networking for VMware Administrators, as they take a look at how to abstract vSphere configuration settings into declarative configuration files. Learn how to audit, track, and enforce consistent settings—with notes and comments—to ensure the availability and standardization of your vSphere environment.
