So why did I only give it 3 stars? The 3 stars are because I am glad this book exists. However, it is clear that it was just 'rehashed' from the previous version. For example, the screenshots of the vCenter management application is using the Adobe Flash based (FLEX) version instead of the HTML5 version... even though the author states that it IS the HTML version... this is INCORRECT. To see the same figures in the book, you need to run the Adobe Flash version (FLEX).
Once I figured out to use the FLEX version, I wsa able to follow along with the book. But then other issues started to appear.
Chapter 3 goes over the management features within the VCenter Server application. Unfortunately the text doesn't seem to match up with the included screenshot it is referencing. As an example, the screeenshot of the 'CONFIGURE' menu options show a section called 'Datastore', but NO MENTION of this in the text of the book. A few pages later and the text mentions a sub-secton called 'Graphics' under the Hardrware sub-section of the 'CONFIGURE' tab.... but alas there is no 'Graphics' section showin in the screenshot. I'm guessing this is because the text was just pulled from a previous version of the book that included the same text.
Nonetheless, this book in general is better than the useless training material that VMware themselves provide through their online educational site, myvmware that costs ALOT more than this book. (VMware as a company should be embarrassed hat they don't provide better training material for their own products)
In summary, I recommend this book to anyone needing some sort of manual to help them navigate their way around their VMware 6.7 environment. Just be aware that the information in this boook seems to be inaccurate for this version.
