Microsoft offers SLA’s with Office 365

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/06/30/microsoft_cloud_uptime/ Good news here. One of the primary concerns about cloud services is that you are completely beholden to the outages of the provider and have no method of really knowing what the issue was and if it will occur again. "Under the...

Microsoft Office 365

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

I am very excited about the Microsoft office 365 offering. At 7 dollars a month you get Exchange mailbox, Sharepoint site, Lync client and way more. I think you would be hard pressed to find this many services at this kind of price pretty much anywhere.

Host Update Utility removed in vSphere 4.1

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

One really nice feature that was in vSphere 4 was a host update utility for upgrading stand alone hosts. I recently found that this utility was removed in vSphere 4.1. Not really sure why this occurred as it was very useful. Oh well, Host Update Utility, you will be missed.

Error: Script failed (code “ERROR_NEED_MAJOR_UPGRADE_USE_IMP_EXP”) when installing “CentralMgmtStore”

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

Got this error during a Lync 2010 deployment. Based on all the research I did this is due to the server being deployed from a tempalte but not sysprepped. You also can't sysprep it later, it must be done before you start the deployment.

The Citrix servers reported that they are too busy to provide access to the selected resource. This message was reported from the XML Service at address [com.citrix.xml.NFuseProtocol.RequestAddress].

Jason Tramer Jason Tramer Profile: Jason Tramer

Got this issue the other day on my web interface. I was unable to launch any app from any server in my farm. Qfarm / load showed normal load on all servers. Issue turned out to be a corrupted load evaluator. Switching to default load evaluator fixed the issue. I was then able to recreate my...
