For anyone considering giving it a go, be warned that it is
approximately 6 hours long and audio-less, meaning you have one hell of
a lot of reading to do if you try and complete it in a day. I booked
last Friday working from home in order to undertake it and actually fell
asleep for 15 mins during the latter stages!  :-)


As to its structure, I would class it as average. It's delivery is very
much in a PowerPoint presentation style, though there's access to a
table of contents which allows you to move around the various sections
at will. The imitation hands-on sections are pretty noddy and the
majority of the information that it imparts can most certainly be found
in the manuals. Also, a large percentage of the course is based around
the purchasable "extras", so anyone looking to use it as a good
introduction to the XenServer hypervisor will undoubtedly be
disappointed. If it's information on the extras that you're after
though, it does a fine job of covering them in detail.


Just my 2p worth.


Thanks to John for posting the original link to this course.

Or a decent guide for newbies for XenServer?  No the admin guide is not
the answer I'm looking for :)
