Steve Beaver’s Virtual Black Hole

Now, I’m not sure how people will react to wanting to view Steve’s Virtual Black Hole it all sounds quite intrusive to the extent you would need to be qualified doctor. But its well worth a visit. Especially for Steve’s article on “Where to download VMware Cold Clone“. I was once (OK, for a nano-second) at the top of the VMTN forum boards for P2V back when it was called P2V and not this girly “Converter” thing (Only joking). It’s a funny one VMware Converter. I learned last week, that although v4 does NOT support the hot-clone of NT4SP6 – the previous version (that would be v3 then) does. Steve points out that the older (some would say more reliable/dependable) cold-clone .ISO is still about – it your prepared to go hunting about for it. Does VMware care about VMware Converter anymore… or is it looking forward to the day where P2V was a dim and distant memory?

Additionally, Steve has good old debate about that old chestnut about how to partition up ESX – which is especially more pertinent now the Service Console uses a virtual disk. To be honest I’ve never really been 100% sure what the benefits are of a virtual disk for the Service Console. There must be some – just can’t think of them right now…
