  • Go throough all of the Datacenter virtualization section of the PEC labs, and you shoudl be good.  Use the UCS Sandbox lab and the N7k labs to be able to practice larger scale setups.


    You can also use the equipment at lab-gear.net as a partner.

     

  • Sometime in the near future I will be going through the PEC Labs (all of them, not just the Data Center Virtualization labs) and be mapping them to the different domains in the CCIE DC blueprint.  I'll make sure to post a link on here once that's done.

  • thank you joelsfood . i will go over them tonight . and please post me link to your blog. 

  • what you mean (all of them, not just the Data Center Virtualization labs) . im not sure if i miss some of them there but the only thing i see is Data Center Virtualization labs . 

  • Ahmed, you can find my blog link in my signature.  I just posted this same list of labs, including direct links to all of them, on the site.

    In regards to not just the DCV labs, I just meant that I went through the other topic domains in the Gold Labs to see if there was anything else applicable (ie, under the security labs, or the CML labs, etc) that would be applicable to study for CCIE:DC.  There was not though.

     

  • hello man, old thread revived i know, but the link to the pec labs are redirecting to the cisco salesconnect portal, any ideas if the labs are still being offered and if yes pls share the link.

     

    thanks

  • Cisco CPE is closed and migrated to sales connect . the sames labs and new once you will find there . 

  • i know they have migrated, was looking for the exact link on salesconnect, but no worries i've got it, thanks
