Reading Time: 2 minutes The vCenter Operations Manager 5.0 is a powerful tool for monitor a vSphere environment. But, as writtent in the previous post, the software is distribuited using a vApp (with two VMs) that means the you need DRS if you deploy it on a VMware Cluster. Note that if you deploy it on a standalone ESXi host it does not require DRS. So how deploy this vApp with a vSphere edition lower than the Enterprise edition?

Reading Time: 2 minutes The core of vCenter Operations Management is a vApp with two VMs: the UI VM with the user interfaces and some data the analytic VM that is basically the data collect Both must stay in the same network and on the same cluster. Really curios the choice of the OpenVPN to handle communications between the VM… Maybe there is some future plan to build a multi-tenant solution? Or simple a single UI with multiple collectors?

Recently there were some cases where vCenter Server progress status is not correctly updated for a Backup Exec 2012 job (for example it remains fixed to 5% for some days). This support page descrive a possible workaround solution: vCenter progress status is not updated after a job is canceled:

Reading Time: < 1 minute There are at least two recent news for the VMworld 2012 events: VMworld 2012 US: the band has been announced and will be Jon Bon Jovi and The Kings of Suburbia. Note that is “only” Jon Bon Jovi and not the entire music group (Bon Jovi), that means no Richie Sambora, David Bryan and Tico Torres (from the original band). Anyway Jon Bon Jovi is the leader and the voice of the group… So it could give a good performance (I hope on ’80 years songs). For people that do no like his songs (or […]
