VMware vCenter Appliance under Linux

I was playing around in my lab and figured I would give the vCenter Appliance (VCVA)  a try. I realize that today there are limitations when it comes to the vCenter Appliance and I wanted to list those to get them out in the open: No Update Manager No Linked-Mode No support for the VSA (vSphere Storage Appliance) Only support for Oracle as the external database Embedded database, DB2, only supports 5 hosts and 50 VMs No support for vCenter Heartbeat Now that you’ve seen the limitations why would you even bother testing...

Historically, Outlook users have used .PST files to store messages on their computers in order to reduce the size of their mailbox on Exchange or simply to... [Lire la suite]

Safely erase old data with the Format command

As explained in this article there are some important changes in Windows 2008 and 2008 R2 regarding how the formatting of a partition is done.

ESXi 5.0 partitions

In this article we will look at the partition layout of ESXi 5.0. A change from earlier ESXi 4.x is that the older MBR partitioning system is replaced with a GPT style partition table. The first five partitions are mandatory and consumes exactly 900 MB together, while the last two is not technically necessary. The first small partition is just for booting the system and locating the hypervisor image which could be on one of the next two partitions. The actual system image is located on the first 250 MB partition, formatted... [Lire la suite]
