  • How can we tell if we’re running VMware virtual machine?

    We're using a VMware ESX server but we also have Red Hat VMs running on that very same server. We're looking for a way to programatically test if we're running in a VM. Ideally, we'd like to know how to do it from Perl.

  • Does anyone know if ESX can handle multiple File Manager instances?

    This seems like a pretty straightforward question but can ESX handle multiple File Manager instances with multiple threads? Do I have to queue file tasks first to work in a series?

  • Failed P2V vmdk files.

    I have tried to P2V a couple of machines but they've failed for a variety of reasons. I hadn't realized it, but the vmdk files weer left on the datastore rather than removed as part of the cleanup. Is it safe just to delete them?
