Interpreting Replication Health – Part 1

In Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate, Hyper-V administrators can monitor the ‘health’ of the replicating VMs using the Replication Health attribute. Thisproperty allows administrators to answer common questions such as: When did the primary and replica VMs last synchronize? What is the average size of the replica file? Were there any errors encountered during replication which requires your attention? etc. The two-part FAQ post explains the concept of Replication Health and provides guidance on how to...

Thanks vSphere, you will cost me my job!

Comme nous en parlions avec un "collègue" de virtualisation : As some of you know I did a health check in Saudi Arabia a couple of weeks ago. A health check is a relatively short engagement. A couple of days on-site and a day off-site for a report. When vSphere went GA I started thinking about all the things I discovered during this particular health check. Now some might say that the things I discovered were low hanging fruit. The truth is that during health checks the things discovered are usually low hanging fruit.... [Lire la suite]
