Configuring VMware Enhanced Linked Mode (vSphere 6.5U1) Child TopicsIntroduction to ELM (vSphere 6.5U1) One of the advantages of a Dell EMC Converged System is turnkey delivery of a pre-configured physical and logical working system. VMware ELM with VMware vSphere 6.5U1 use casesVMware ELM with VMware vSphere 6.5U1 can be used in several situations. Backup and recovery for ELM 6.5Backup and recovery guidelines Review the backup and recovery guidelines. Converged System AMP design (ELM/VMware vSphere 6.5U1)This applies to AMP-2 and AMP-3S only. Dell EMC manufacturing configures the AMP with VMware vSphere 6.5U1 using only VMware recommended topologies. VMware ELM scalability planning (vSphere 6.5U1) Determine the number of PSCs and VMware vCenter servers that are needed for an ELM configuration with VMware vSphere 6.5U1 in a SSO Domain and SSO site. VMware ELM deployment information (VMware vSphere 6.5U1) When deploying VMware ELM, replicate roles, permission, licenses, tags, and policies across linked VMware vCenter servers. Verifying PSC and PSC Partner Status Dell EMC recommends that each PSC have two partners in a ring topology and a single peer in a dual PSC deployment. Determining the VMware vCenter server within a vSphere Domain Complete this task to determine ownership of each vCenter server participating in the same VMware vSphere SSO domain. Reconfiguring the ring topology Complete this task to reconfigure the ring topology. VMware ELM references (vSphere 6.5U1) These references provide additional information about VMware ELM.
