My name is Michael Rebmann and I am a “Senior Solution Architect EUC” working for VMware since May 2018. I have just started my journey to become a VCDX-DTM certified architect. As a solution architect I have a customer facing pre-sales role and therefor only need limited technical knowledge, which doesn’t make my life easier to earn the VCDX-DTM certification. 🙂

It’s a long way and I have to start from scratch: Earn the VCP7-DTM certification including the vSphere 6.5 Foundations exam. This means I have to study a lot of PDFs, probably attend a few classroom trainings and also get a lot hands-on experience.

I already passed the online vSphere 6.5 Foundations exam which proves my fundamental skills of vSphere 6.5 environments. My experience from the past with the help of the vSphere 6.5 Install, Configure, Manage course was enough to reach the required score.

On August 16, I will start my first attempt to pass the 2V0-751 VCP7-DTM exam. According to the exam guide the candidate should have between 6-12 months experience working with VMware Horizon including Mirage, App Volumes, User Environment Manager and VMware Identity Manager.

I’m three months with VMware now and let’s figure out on Thursday if the Horizon 7.x Install, Configure, Manage training, VCP-DTM path on Pluralsight and the self-study is enough to pass the exam.

In addition to my VCDX journey I try to share my personal experience from the field.  Let the adventure begin!

By the way: So far only 16 people worldwide have earned the VCDX-DTM certification from VMware! Check out the VCDX Directory.
