• VMware ESX host monitoring

    Do you have any tips and tricks for ESX host monitoring? I would like to be alerted when an Exchange server moves from host to host, since they do not always move cleanly. This question was asked during the Microsoft System Center live chat on IT Knowledge Exchange in January 2010.

  • How are you backing up your virtual machines?

    What are you currently using for your virtual machine backups, particularly with VMWare? One of the writers over on SearchDataBackup recently virtual agents rather than the APIs VMWare and others have been rolling out, and I'm wondering if that's true with ITKErs as well.

  • VMWare performance metrics
