AutoLab Video Series Part 5 – Deploying the vMA

This fifth video in my AutoLab Video Series covers downloading, deploying, configuring, and using the vSphere Management Assistant (vMA) virtual appliance in the AutoLab vSphere environment.

The vMA can be used to configure, manage, and monitor the vSphere environment using the command line. The vMA allows all hosts in a vSphere environment to be managed from a single command line interface. The ability to use the command line to configure ESXi hosts is a skill that, if mastered, is useful in the day to day management of a vSphere environment and in the successful completion of the VCAP-DCA exam.
