Task 1: Navigate vSphere Web Client
For this, we need to log into our Vsphere web client,
Once in here we need to locate the datastores this can be done via a word search or as shown below and click on the storage. In this, we are only going to quickly check the summary tab for the details.
Task 2: Pin and Unpin Panes
The next thing is to familiarise us with the Panes, this includes pinning and unpinning. It is located in the right-hand corner under the alarms and “work in” tabs. As shown below, all we need to do is click on the tack and these will be pushed to the side (out of the way) as shown below.
Task 3: Hide the Getting Started Tabs
After this, we will get rid of all the “help” pages by simply clicking on the option selected below.
Task 4: Upgrade the Virtual Machine’s Hardware
The next step is to upgrade the virtual machines, but I am currently running the latest updates so I will just describe it.
As seen below we are in the actual settings of the VM. This has to be done while the machine is powered off. If the machine isn’t up to date there will be an option to update where the yellow lines are. This needs to be selected for when you power it on and it will update.
