Rank #3: NSX east west traffic optimization with the DLR
The universal distributed logical router Control VM is the control plane component of the routing process, providing communication between NSX Manager and NSX Controller cluster through the User World Agent.
NSX Manager sends logical interface information to the Control VM and NSX Controller cluster, and the Control VM sends routing updates to the NSX Controller cluster.

Rank #4: Demo of the VMware NSX 6.4 Context-Aware Firewall
Firewall rules cannot consume application IDs. Context-aware firewall identifies applications and enforces a micro-segmentation for EAST-WEST traffic, independent of the port that the application uses. Context-aware or application-based firewall rules can be defined by defining Layer 7 service objects.

Rank #5: How to configure encryption in your vSphere 6.5 environment
An external KMS, the vCenter Server system, and your ESXi hosts are contributing to the vSphere Virtual Machine Encryption solution.
After vCenter Server is connected to the KMS, users with the required privileges can create encrypted virtual machines and disks. Those users can also perform other encryption tasks such as encrypting existing virtual machines and decrypting encrypted virtual machines.
When you create an encrypted virtual machine from the vSphere Web Client, all virtual disks are encrypted. You can later add disks and set their encryption policies. You cannot add an encrypted disk to a virtual machine that is not encrypted, and you cannot encrypt a disk if the virtual machine is not encrypted.

Rank #6: Using esxtop to Troubleshoot Performance Problems
It lists CPU utilization for each physical processor, memory utilization, and disk and network bandwidth for each network and disk device available to the ESX Server machine. Furthermore, esxtop lists CPU and memory utilization for each individual VMkernel world.
Memory utilization is characterized by the type of memory (for example, shared, private, or swapped) that is being consumed. These CPU and memory statistics let you monitor the resource utilization for each of your virtual machines.

Rank #8: Configuring SSL Certificates for View Servers
A default SSL server certificate is generated when you install View Connection Server instances, security servers, or View Composer instances. You can use the default certificate for testing purposes.
Replace the default certificate as soon as possible. The default certificate is not signed by a Certificate Authority (CA). Use of certificates that are not signed by a CA can allow untrusted parties to intercept traffic by masquerading as your server.

Rank #9: Building an App in Xojo that talks to the vSphere 6.5 REST API
Since Visual Basic doesn’t run on a Mac, I did some research and have found a good cross platform alternative called Xojo, it’s a a development tool for creating powerful, native applications for desktop, web, iOS, and Raspberry Pi.
The only problem I had is how to I talk to vSphere? Version 6.5 has a REST API and Xojo is equipped with a rest socket. Just connect those two together and let the fun begin.
In this video, I’ll explain how to create your own cross platform applications in Xojo and access the vSphere 6.5 REST API through the Xojo rest socket. This allows you to list, create, and power-on virtual machines and all the other stuff from your own user interface. Xojo and vSphere we got a lift off.

Rank #17: Troubleshooting VMware vSphere vDSwitches
In this video I'll show you how to troubleshoot and configure vNetwork Distributed Switch Network Adapters. The vNetwork Distributed Switch networking view of the host configuration page displays the configuration of the host’s associated vNetwork Distributed Switches and allows you to configure the vNetwork Distributed Switch network adapters and uplink ports.
For each host associated with a vNetwork Distributed Switch, you must assign physical network adapters, or uplinks, to the vNetwork Distributed Switch. You can assign one uplink on each host per uplink port on the vNetwork Distributed Switch.

Rank #18: NetFlow
ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer is a web-based bandwidth monitoring tool that collects NetFlow data exported from routing devices, and uses it to analyze and report on IP traffic across the network. With instant reports on top applications, protocols, conversations, and hosts, NetFlow Analyzer gives you valuable insight into bandwidth usage in your enterprise without the complexity and expense involved in a traditional WAN analysis setup.

Rank #19: vSphere 5 Video - ESXi Firewall Configuration
From the host Security Profile panel, you can configure firewall properties for this host. The Secuirty Profile panel lists the incoming and outgoing connections for the firewall and the port each service uses. The panel also displays the IP addresses that are allowed to connect for each service. You can modify the list of services and the allowed IP addresses for each service.
You can add supported services and management agents that are required to operate the host by adding ruleset files to the ESXi firewall configuration file directory /etc/vmware/firewall/. You open or close ports for these services by enabling or disabling the service on the host's security profile in the vSphere Client.
