In the previous post around my last VCDX attempt story, I talked about the amount of support which was given to me by my wife and the vCommunity. Now, let’s talk about some of the things around the defense preparations. Vacation After submitting the docs, I took 3 days off, regrouped and started working on my slides. Taking only 3 days off is not ideal but knowing wife and I are about to go to an 8 days vacation in Switzerland mid-September, I wasn’t too worried about burning out.

Let me open by saying that getting Karl’s email on a Friday morning saying I wasn’t able to pass my VCDX defense this time around was a kick in the nuts – no sugar coating, it’s simple as that.

From time to time a change is needed and in the case of vROps, changing the Master Node IP address is not something you will do via the GUI (well, at least not all the configurations 🙂 ).
I am a big vROps Interactions XML fan, as a matter of fact I’ve written on this topic a few times before. Now that the vApp structure has changed from 2 to 1 VM, I wasn’t able to find my beloved XML files. So dude, where are my XML’s?
