VVOLs in the HomeLab with the vVNX

Got VVOLs up and running in the home lab using the VVols Technical Preview for vVNX

If you are studying for the VCP6-DCV and are looking to gets some hands on with VVOLs the vVNX is pretty easy to set up. Grab the VVols Technical Preview for vVNX here https://www.emc.com/products-solutions/trial-software-download/vvols.htm. Once deployed make sure you request a license here: https://www.emc.com/auth/elmeval.htm (Requires an EMC Account).


The two videos found here https://community.emc.com/docs/DOC-48638 walk you through getting it all going.

Have fun!
