    About this course

    This course will walk you through the process of creating a vSphere 6.7 lab on your home computer step-by-step. You'll learn how to use VMware Workstation 15, and will create multiple virtual machines.

    When you are done you will have a completely functional vSphere 6.7 lab environment, complete with a router, domain controller, virtual NAS device, and multiple ESXi hosts. You will also have vCenter deployed, and will be able to launch the vSphere Client and manage your environment.

    The course is about an hour in length, but if you are following along at home the process to completely build your Home Lab should take about two-three hours.
