    Congrats on passing. I see you had the same "fun" as I did. To think you're in a country where English is a first language, so you had 30 minutes less than me… We all the lock ups etc. I thought the timing was brutally tough.

    Congrats for passing the exam. I am also planning to give VCAP5 DCA. I would like to ask you whether you performed lab activities in exam with GUI or CLI. If i use GUI to perform lab activities will i have sufficient time to finish all questions.

    I too had a bad experience while giving the exam in India, Due to the slowness, i was able to complete 13 questions and it resulted FAIL. I dropped a email to VMware on the slowness of Lab in exam and result staus. They gave me a Free Voucher to retake the exam. fortunately This time i was in UK and gave my VCAP5 DCA exam in Leeds in Global Knowledge Exam center. The Lab speed was awesome played will all 26 questions. I got my result yesterday With congratulation on passing VCAP5 DCA.

    Great info Mike. Do you have a link to the specific vBrownBag podcast?

    Ah, found it. On the vBrownbag site it's labelled as "vBrownBag – VCAP5-DCA Upgrade #3 – Storage with Alastair Cooke". Although Al's first slide is labelled "VCAP-DCA What's new – Storage".

    Watching it now.

    Hi, congratulations!

    One question, is it recommended to take VCAP5-DCA before VCAP5-DCD?

    I wasn't able to find any recommendation about that.

    Thanks and best regards.

    Congratulations Mike. Have been working since esx 2.5 non stop in all kind of situations and solutions. Even with lab i cannot cover everything to study. have no real san in my homelab, so difficult to test with nfs,iscsi etc. Should i be scared for the exam? Any question simulators to try out in my lab? Do i need to know cli and linux perfectly? Sorry for so much questions. Thanks

    Hi, congrats! well done.
    I am planning to take the exam on next week. just one question: How many lab sessions must be done only via vcli? and how many with powercli? I mean, when you can not choose between GUI/powercli/cli. I think i am a bit stornger in powercli, but after reading some VCAP-DCA exam stories it seems to be there will be more cli questions. And of course the blueprint confirms that.
