How to create a nested vSphere lab environment for testing/learning purposes

Many students ask me how I prepare for the VMware exams.  Most of us of course read the product documentation, but playing with the product is also an important part in preparation.

Not all of us have access to an environment that we can use to "play", so many of us use a "nested" environment (i.e. virtualised).

I was intending to document what I had done, then found a REALLY useful blog site by Sammy Bogaert, which has the details.

So check out "Building the Ultimate vSphere Lab" on Sammy's blog site at boerlowie.wordpress.com
