    Hello ITProTV team!
    I have some questions about the VCP course.
    In the installing video the licensing 'with operations management' (17:30) Don explains that licensing 'with operations management' basically just includes vcenter.
    So does basic vsphere license not include it?
    I'm confused bc the table in the background clearly shows features needing vcenter to work like vDS or DRS are supported in the 'without' licensing mode.
    Does this mean that the table is flawed and while the features are there you can't use them unless vCenrer is licensed separately?

    Just got back form Pearson Vue after failing the VCP exam.
    249/600 (which is 149/500 really since you get 100 points just for showing up).
    I can score 80%+ on any practice test I attempted. Watched the IT-Protv series, CBT Nuggets and read two books. Made highlight notes and all.
    I was able to pass 4 other certs using my normal study method so I'm not new to this. I have failed exams before also.
    Anyway. The exam is a complete joke.
    80% of the questions were scenario based and BOY are these the most ridiculous scenarios.
    There was not a single question that I read that prompted me to think 'oh this is my weak area, should have read more'.
    Instead, every question I had to concentrate on trying to understand the convoluted logic.
    Honestly, I don't think it would make any difference if I had both books and a phone in my hand.
    Pretty disappointing!
    Anyway, I'm going to wait 7 days and just go again. Not even going to study anymore.
    Perhaps I will get a set of questions that was written by someone who was SOBER when coming up with them.

    I think you should include some sort of a footnote to the credits of each show to mention that you DO HAVE a youtube channel.
    Poor Nate keeps spending hours putting good content out there and he gets like 40 views a pop, 2 of each are mine usually.
    It took me months to realize that ITProTV has an actual channel, hard to find any reference to it on the site.
    (or maybe I'm just blind)
    Either way, you'd get more views, free advertising and more subscribers and THEN we could have
    that NEW CHEAPER RATE for subscribers.
    I have personally passed 5 certs this year thanks to your courses!
    But I feel there is going to be a point where there I'm not studying anymore. NOW, your rates are great, especially the early bird one I have, but at some point in time it comes down to 'I don't need this anymore' kind of thing.
    Given that your course portfolio is SUPER respectable now it wold only make sense to start pounding the pavement and getting new people on board so we can all benefit!

    Hi awesome team @itprotv
    Anybody following the 'courses' on roku noticed that the episodes are sorted alphabetically?
    That is not ideal but could be easily fixed with a naming convention ala torrent tv series:
    Sys+ E02 Threats
    Sys+ E03 Cryptography
    Right now there is not a way to follow the intended course order.
    MSG.

    If you get a router from ebay and it does not hold configuration after 'wr' command BUT you can see your saved configuration using 'configure memory' you will need to change the startup bit where IOS looks for configuration file.

    Don't ask me how I know.

    I am starting this thread to post some feedback on the new layout that is about to be introduced.
    The recent additions the site are AWESOME, all the stuff in the
    "New Features Released" thread is a perfect compliment to the awesome website and great content you produce.
    BUT, remember, better is the enemy of good - I had a chance to preview a 'NEW'er not-yet-public layout of the site. While it clearly was a pre-production version with a few bugs that surely can be ironed out, I am at a loss to understand WHY the change is coming.
    I am petitioning for itpro.tv to keep following the TWIT / Windows Weekly model like you have been (I think you have been?). What I mean by that is avoid the needles change for the sake of change.
    We already use Gmail and other web services that seem to move buttons around and change things every other week. Seems like every time you log in there is a new layout, tour and a bunch of extra useless gimmicky things in the way of sending an email.
    You are a TV channel a content provider, an educator. People subscribe to see YOU because we appreciate the great CONTENT you provide, not because we think your website looks cool.
    Let's keep it that way.
    Cheers.

    3.
    Still on the same video 38:00
    VCSA does not offer the same functionality as Windows install. Features missing

    • Linked Mode
    • MSSQL
    • IPv6
    • Vcenter Server heartbeat.
      I'm not trying to pick apart the course, just failed VCP550 twice in a row and that's the kinda PITA questions they ask :)

    Question 2:
    In vsphere Editions (33:00) pricing guide, Don describes the 'Standard, E and E+' as per 6 CPUs (which would make sense if we're talking essentials).
    However that happens when discussing the 'normal' licensing, not the kit.
    This I know for sure isn't the case, the licensing is 'Per Socket'. I also know Don knows it because he said it a few minutes earlier.
    But hey, live TV isn't easy.
    So now the question goes how do we go about corrections ?

    What about ITprotv Forum app?
    I bet you guys aren't rolling your own forum software so there has to be a Forum app that works with whatever library you guys are on.
    Not asking for a new app or inclusion of the actual app in development, just searching for a forum aggregator app that will work with this forum.
