Yesterday, VMware announced the availability of a new product, VMware vCenter Log Insight. If browsing through various ESXi and vCenter logs was turning into a nightmare for you, this will most likely ease up your work. vCenter Log Insight comes from the acquisition by VMware last year of a company called
A great initiative from Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman, their two excellent books: VMware vSphere 4.1 HA/DRS and 5.0 Clustering Deepdive Kindle version are available for free! I have bought those two books in the past and they are an invaluable resource for any serious professional who is into virtualization.
Dear readers, it’s been a long time since I’ve been actively posting on this blog, the reasons being mainly important changes in my life, both professional and personal. First of all, I’ve switched from Systems Administrator at HSBC Czech Republic to Presales Consultant at NextiraOne Czech Republic. This has been
Hello everyone! I hope you've had a nice summer time and enjoyable holidays as well! No such fun times for me, because (if you don't know – which means you don't follow me on twitter), I've decided to move along in my career and I will be moving to a
In the course of our work, we are all faced at a point with the necessity to implement "solutions" that are against nature and common sense. I invite you to take a journey on a fairy tale where a critical process requires Microsoft Office 2010 on a server to run.
Like many people I follow with interest, amusement and sometimes consternation the war that is waged by proxy between the two main virtualization contenders: VMware and Microsoft. VMware, the market leader, weighs in with the incontestable arguments of proven, real world experience as well as a solid set of features.
Here's a light one to end the week in a good mood! Expect no complex engineering though, PowerCLI scripts to manage snapshots must be very common around! I manage a small environment where uber-scripting skills are not required. But for the sake of efficiency, laziness and "intellectual effort", here's what
Right after passing my VCP5 last week I was contacted by a colleague from Slovakia who asked if I could provide an presentation to VMware vSphere. I liked the idea and asked in our team if someone would like to attend as well. Another colleague who's currently in a desktop
Hello, A little article to start the week with. Mondays can't be boring! While installing VMware Site Recovery Manager 5 installation on Windows 2008 R2 I was stuck with the following error at the very end of the install procedure : Failed to update Perl installation directories. After two more
EDIT 28-Sep-2011 : Do not take this as a definitive fix. I need to hard reset my phone every day with 4.2.1 – The reasons why I wanted 4.2.1 were very questionable (tilt-shift filter capacity in instagram!), therefore a revert to 3.1.3 is planned, and so is the purchase of
Dears, more than 10 months and I haven't posted anything! I've been extremely busy, to say the least. Family life and ramping up work projects take their toll on free time, hobbies and blogging. My family sees me rarely enough so I don't want to deprive them of these rare
Dear visitors, I hope you have been well. Time flies at the speed of light, and I realize that my last blog post was written two months ago, with the latest significant IT-related post being at least 4 months old. Saying that I've been pretty busy is the very least
Hey all! Just for fun, I will divert from technical blogging to celebrate the end of 2010 with a bit of humor. I've done some cleanup today on my main twitter account because of huge amounts of spam on my timeline. While removing accounts I came accross a very interesting pattern
NOTE: As of today, I am still solving several issues related to this that are peculiar to the way EMC Networker is implemented. Expect more updates on this issue. Recently I've been designing a Backup GFS Rotation with EMC Networker (GFS Stands for Grandfather-Father-Son, google will be your friend).
For a change, a blog post about the hype geek world of smartphones. Pardon the disgression! I've been swapping phones with a friend in early august. He got my iPhone 3G (of which I was getting sick tired of) and I got his brand new Sony-Ericsson XPeria X10. Android, I
