Thursday was the final day of VMworld.  Like with all conferences I'm sad that it's over, but I'm damn glad that it's over.  These things are just exhausting to go to. Today was an interesting (and short) day.  On the final day of VMworld, VMware has decided that they won't give a product...

Today was day 3 of VMware.  All the sessions that I attended today were pretty much a recap of the things which I covered earlier in the week. I went to these more in depth sessions because the information learned today will help me with my day to day deployments of VMware as well as helping me...

So today was day 2 of VMworld 2011 and today was a great day at the conference.  We had a great keynote with some demos which were pretty funny (I really hope that they were supposed to be funny).  Granted I was a little late to the keynote so I missed the first few minutes, but

During the webcast which I did for the SQL PASS Virtulization Virtual Chapter on July 13th, 2011 a question came up that I didn't have the answer for.  The question was if I had done "Any testing on the effect of Hiding NX/XD flag from guest with SQL Server  on ESX?".  I hadn't done any testing...

Microsoft is putting on a great free three day online class for VMware professionals that need to learn more about Hyper-V. Day 1 will focus on “Platform” (Hyper-V, virtualization architecture, high availability & clustering)

Given that LiveMotion, etc give you high availability in the event of a server failure, why would you put a SQL cluster on VMs?

This question comes up every once and a while when designing a virtualization solution for someone.  When building a virtualization solution (either Hyper-V or VMware) you get some great free HA solutions included when you build a cluster so why would you want to go through the pain of creating a...

VMware 4.1 has some “great” security “features” when you upgrade



Posted by: Denny Cherry
Permissions, VMware

So after I upgraded from VMware's vSphere 4.0 to 4.1 I ran across an awesome "feature".  Apparently for security purposes VMware's vSphere decided that after the upgrade no one can log into the server except for root, and the vpxuser (the account that the vCenter server uses to log into the...

Posted by: Denny Cherry
VMware

Just after upgrading our hosts from VMware 4.0 to 4.1 I ran across a little problem.  None of the guest machines could get the VMware tools upgraded automatically.  I had to log into each machine and upgrade the tools (ok I only did 2 or 3 manually).  It turns out that if the VMware tools had...
