VMware just announced on Sept. 27, 2017, the availability of VMworld 2017 Hands-on Labs  (HOL).   There are 81 new HOL to be released daily, starting with the most popular rated labs coming out first.   Here is a good website with some tips for the “Upcoming Changes to the Catalogs and Tips on How to Find Things”.  Also please continue to check HOL for your favorite VMworld 2017 HOL until it posts over the next few days, and you can find the docs for HOL here.
