Today is a day where we go for another topic that is present on the latest VMware Blueprint, that covers all chapters of the VCP-DCV certification exam based on VMware vSphere 8.x. The topic is VCP-DCV on vSphere 8.x Objective 7.12.1 – Convert a non-encrypted virtual machine to an encrypted virtual machine.
A short chapter that is easy to check and learn. If you have a lab, you can just test it. If you don't, then read on….
The study guide page VCP8-DCV with all those individual chapters helps you with learning towards VMware certification exam (2V0-21. 23) and to became VCP-DCV on vSphere 8.x.

VCP-DCV on vSphere 8.x Objective 7.12.1 – Convert a non-encrypted virtual machine to an encrypted virtual machine
- Establish a trusted connection with the KMS and select a default KMS.
- Create an encryption storage policy, or use the bundled sample, VM Encryption Policy.
- Ensure that the virtual machine is powered off.
- Make sure your host has TPM v2 installed and it supports encryption
Host encryption mode must be set if you want to perform encryption tasks, such as creating an encrypted virtual machine, on an ESXi host. In most cases, host encryption mode is activated automatically when you perform an encryption task
Check that you have the required privileges:
- Cryptographic operations.Encrypt new
- If the host encryption mode is not Enabled, you also need Cryptographic operations.Register host.
Log in vSphere Client, and connect to vCenter Sever.
Right-click the virtual machine you want to encrypt, and select VM Policies > Edit VM Storage Policies.
In VM storage policy, select VM Encryption Policy. Click OK.
You can use per-dick configuration too…
You can also make a clone of your VM and during the process you can check the box “Encrypt this virtual machine”.
Hopefully this chapter will help you to study towards VMware VCP-DCV Certification based on vSphere 8.x. Find other chapters on the main page of the guide – VCP8-DCV Study Guide Page.
