Just over a fortnight ago VMware released their latest version of vSphere and vSAN - 6.7.... unfortunately for me, I was neck-deep in a tender response and was in Paris for a number of days for a meeting - so spent most of my travels looking at a small mobile phone screen trying to read … Continue reading VMware vSphere 6.7 & 6.5 update 2 – Resources
A little while back I caught the vSphere blog about vSphere Central being launched and ended up bookmarking the portal to have a look at a later date. I had totally forgot about it till today when I needed to look up the PSC topology diagrams and Google sent me to the new vSphere 6.5 … Continue reading vSphere Central – new resource centre
Hmm.... it's not even VMworld yet and VMware decide to make 2 big-ish announcements. Although tbh, since vSphere 6.5 was released these 2 announcements have long been coming! Finally, after loads of speculation, VMware had announced that vCenter Server for Windows and the Flash-based vSphere web client is to be deprecated with the launch of … Continue reading Goodbye vCenter Server for Windows and Flash-based vSphere web client!
So it's probably worth reminding everyone that there are still VMware products that are not yet supported on vSphere 6.5! I unfortunately found out the hard way when I broke my work's demo environment (or at least half of it). Now even though I've blogged about compatibility issues previously eating too many mince pies and drinking … Continue reading vSphere 6.5 Product Interoperability – brain fade moment!
So the first part of my article has appeared on SearchVMware.com..... enjoy! =) http://searchvmware.techtarget.com/tip/VMware-focuses-on-simplicity-in-vSphere-version-65 Not sure when part 2 will be released... =)
So post VMworld, I wrote a long article about what's new for vSphere 6.5 which I was hoping would be published on SearchVMware.com.... unfortunately I'm still waiting on it to be published, last I heard the article was too long and they were splitting it up into two articles! ¬_¬" Anyways, whilst I wait for … Continue reading vSphere/vCenter 6.5 released
Last year I blogged about the vCS to vCSA converter tool that VMware Labs released as a fling and how I had used it to pretty much convert all my lab vCenters (all bar one) to vCSAs..... since then I've been following the releases and a few months ago I noticed the Fling was deprecated (ie … Continue reading vCenter Server Migration Tool: vSphere 6.0 Update 2m
So it's all happening this week with this upgrade/clean up of the MTI solution centre!! =) Upon finishing all the upgrades and reconfiguring vSphere Replication and Site Recovery Manager, I noticed the DR vCSA was a bit unresponsive.... taking ages to log into Web Client (sometimes it didn't even get that far) - signing into … Continue reading vCenter Server Appliance – filesystem out of space
I've been upgrading my company's solution centre to vSphere/vCenter 6.0 update 2 the past week and noticed that I was having issues logging into the vCenter Server Appliances I had deployed. It was a strange issue because I could log into the Windows vCenter Server I had deployed in my primary cluster, but couldn't log into the … Continue reading Cannot connect to vCenter Server via vSphere Client – timeout
I first came across this issue when helping a customer uninstall Site Recovery Manager last year and wanted to blog about it but because I was pretty busy it totally slipped my mind..... until today!! I've been cleaning up the Solution Centre at MTI and tried to uninstall SRM for a new build.... and came across … Continue reading Modifying VMware Site Recovery Manager – Windows 2012 UAC error
