I experienced this problem at a customer sight today where they had an IBM x3650 M3 Server running ESX 4.1 and during the night the server lost connection to the storage but remained up, so the virtual machines didn’t migrate over to the other servers in the cluster. This issue is also experienced on an IBM BladeCenter HS22V
This tutorial will show you how to correctly setup VMware NIC teaming with a Cisco Catalyst Switch using Etherchannel.
In this tutorial I will guide you through creating Virtual Machine Backups using Netapp Virtual Storage Console for VMware vCenter. Virtual Storage Console has integrated “Backup and Recovery” of what used to be called Snap Manager for Virtual Infrastructure or SMVI
I ran into this problem the other day where I couldn’t remove a specific plug-in from vCenter after migrating from a server running 32-bit vCenter 4.0 to 64-bit vCenter running 4.1. The datamigration backup brought across this plug-in without it actually being installed on the new server. This guide will show you how to remove an unwanted or a ghost plug-in from vcenter
In this tutorial I will guide you through installing Netapp’s Virtual Storage Console into VMware vCenter 4.x With virtual storage console for vmware you can do tasks such as provision and clone storage, run backups and restore, get an detailed over view of your storage provisioning.
New tutorial has been uploaded which will guide you though through restoring a full virtual machine with Veeam Backup and Replication from a previous restore point.
This tutorial will show you how to create a Virtual Machine Template within vCenter. This template can be used to create virtual machine from a base image.
I’ve just completed two quick tutorials on how to enable Jumbo Frames and Flow Control in VMware ESX 4. Very useful when you are setting up your iSCSI or NFS storage network.
Just completed this tutorial on Veeam’s Backup and Replication 5. I run you through the steps to successfully backup your virtual machines and how to view statistics about the job once it’s complete.
Veeam backup and Replication v5 was released last month. I have written the first tutorial on installing the product. It will be followed by backing up and restoring virtual machines soon.
