By the end of the course, you should be able to meet the following objectives:

• Describe the software components of vSAN and their roles

• Diagram how the components relate to each other

• Use Skyline Health to investigate and help determine failure conditions

• Use the command-line tools to help determine failure conditions


Storage and virtual infrastructure administrators who want to be able to perform initial troubleshooting on their software-defined storage with vSAN


You must complete one of the following prerequisites:

• Understanding of concepts presented in the VMware vSphere®: Install, Configure, Manage [V7.0] course

• Completion of the VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage [V6.7] course or equivalent experience with vSAN
