Just Another IT blog: RDM Disk corruption on…

Recently I’ve been working on a fresh new vSphere 6 environment and we wanted to test a new functionality, vMotion of clustered guest VMs with RDM. We created and configured Windows Server Failover Cluster solution (WSFC) in accordanced with VMware’s Best Practices and then vMotion it to another hosts, as expected successfully !!! Then we decided to change the Multi Path Policy of the RDM disk to Round Robin, already supported since vSphere 5.5, when we vMotion the clustered guest VM ,in this specific scenario, we faced a disk corruption on the WSFC solution.

Securing the Data Center with VMware AirWatch…

Data breaches have become a significant problem for organizations. A single weak link in the chain causes the entire environment to be at risk and compromised, because exploits can expand their footprint across an organization and to multiple systems. Today, security approaches rely on detecting issues at the perimeter, but not restricting or limiting the size of the attack surface internally. As cybersecurity threats increase, protecting data center resources and limiting a user’s footprint to internal resources is mission critical in protecting corporate data. In this webinar, we will discuss the evolution of cyber threats and mobile security. Our experts will also delve into how the VMware AirWatch and NSX integration can help IT…Read More
