VMware Basics – Virtual Networking and NSX-T Installation


  • A basic understanding of VMware and Virtualization
  • A basic understanding of computer networking
  • Developers working with vSphere and vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA)


This course covers the basics of VMware virtual networking, including a comparison of Standard switches and VDS distributed switches.

We also cover creating a VDS across multiple VMware vSphere ESXi hosts

We then install NSX-T manager, and then build-out a 3-appliance NSX-T Management Cluster

This course is intended as an introduction to Virtual Networking and NSX-T Installation, taken before a more detailed NSX-T training course.

(We install and configure and NSX-T Management Cluster, but don’t actually deploy any additional NSX-T networking services)
