  1. Hello Mayur,

    These questions are very well thought out and helpful to those of us who may already be in a VMware role too! Do you think there is any chance of posting an Answers section for Parts 1 through 5? I find that a lot of these are things I don’t even know the answer to and would like to learn more about (beyond the general answer of Googling it, but seeing the answers from a real-world expert’s opinions of the question with the answer/scenario examples).



    1. Hi Steven,
      Thank you for your valuable response.
      We have not posted answers because then only people can start searching & finding out answers that will help more in the learning process.
