6422/6331, Windows 2008 Hyper-V R2 and System Center Virtual Machine Manager (SCVMM) 2008 R2 Bootcamp
Printer friendly

Course Overview
  This hands-on, highly accelerated five-day bootcamp combines the content of 6422 (three-day Hyper-V course) and 6331 (three-day SCVMM 2008 course) into an accelerated version of the two courses. Along with content from 6422 and 6331, the bootcamp also covers Hyper-V R2 and SCVMM 2008 R2. As an added bonus, students will receive hands-on Hyper-V R2 clustering/Live Migration, which is not available in standard 6422 or 6331.

Student feedback has provided that the overwhelming majority of those who have taken the 6422 Hyper-V course would have preferred to have the content delivered in a five-day, highly in-depth format with more coverage of SCVMM 2008 R2.


  This course is intended for Virtualization Systems Administrators, Consultants or Integrators planning on Hyper-V R2/SCVMM R2 implementations. The students will learn the content of both courses and more:

1. Hyper-V R2 Clustering Hands-on (Not covered in normal versions of either class)
2. Hyper-V R2 'Live Migration' Hands-on (Not covered in normal versions of either class)
