You can have more information on http://www.blogtober.net web site or on this post (actually the web site just point to this post).

One of the big advantages of the virtual appliance version of VMware vCenter (vCSA) is the ability to update both the OS components and the VMware parts with a simple menu.

Just use the administrative UI available at https://vCSA_IP:5480 and login with user root and the password that you have choose during the deployment.

VMware vSAN 6.6 works only in unicast mode, if you have upgrade all the disks to the last v5 format.

But recently I’ve got a new cluster, build totally from scratch with latest version, that has switched to multicast mode, with the result of all hosts partitioned at network level.

VeeamON is the big event from Veeam (actually only in the US) and VeeamON Tour is usually a smallest (one day) event around the world.

But, like happened in the past year, on December 5 there will be also a VeeamON Tour Virtual event: coming right to your desktop, an event on the future of Availability.

If you choose to install the vCSA 6.5 in two different components, you may have an error during the PSC custominization (happens also on latest 6.5U1):

An error occurred while starting service ‘pschealth’

This it’s related to a failure of identity management service error on first boot, so during the phase 2 of the deployment where the appliance has already been upload, but still must be configured.

After a technical preview period and the official announce, now both VMware Workstation 14 and VMware Fusion 10 are available for the download.

This is a good news, considering that one year ago there were some rumors and doubts about the future of Workstation and Fusion product, due to the laying off some employees from the related teams.

Seems that nested virtualization is becoming popular on public cloud: first with Ravello, this year also on Azure, and now Google Compute Engine supports nested virtualization in beta.

This feature allows you to run one or more virtual machines inside a Compute Engine Linux virtual machine by leveraging Intel VT-x, processor virtualization instructions, to deliver better performance than what’s possible with alternative technologies like emulation.

During the last VMworld EU, on Monday I’ve tried the new VMware vSAN 2017 Specialist exam, just to see how difficult was and which kind of contents where covered by the exam.

This specialist exam it’s something outside the traditional VMware certification paths, but it’s classified in the Certification Related Badges that includes different types of accreditations:

Now also VMworld EU 2017 is concluded, so finally it’s possible to give the takeovers of this event, there was something new compared to VMworld US 2017?

Let’s start from the general sessions that where unfortunately too much similar (in some part identical) as the US edition… have two events so close (just two weeks of distance) is not useful at all, and the risk is to make the EU edition just a reply of the other… It’s already the small brother, but make it also a copy it’s a risk. Fortunately, the next year, VMworld EU 2018 will be at the beginning of November, so enough distance from the US one… I still think that was better in February (like the first Cannes edition) but for sure it’s better than now.
