Advertise here with BSA It seems Virtual SAN is on fire… I’ve been getting emails about VSAN configurations on a daily basis from partners, VMware field and customers. More and more customers seem to be looking at deploying Virtual SAN with a high number of disks and this week I ran in to something that I wanted to share […] “More than 8 disks in your Virtual SAN host?” originally appeared on Yellow-Bricks.com.

Some vSphere administrators utilize a storage feature call “raw device mapping” or RDM. There are two types of RDM – virtual RDM and physical RDM. For more information on RDM, please see the vSphere 6.0 Documentation Center. In general, I recommend using VMDK files or Virtual Volumes, but there are certain benefits of RDM. I […]
Post by vExpert Vladan Seget VMware vSphere 6 further enhanced VMware HA and related configurations, which help detect shared storage issues, and also introduced VM Component Protection (VMCP). It’s perhaps a lesser-known feature, but I’d say it’s good to have one. Today, we’ll focus on VMCP and show how it allows vSphere admins to sleep better […]

By Jeffrey Davidson There has been a lot of focus on VMware UEM (formerly Immidio) in recent months since its acquisition and release as VMware User Environment Manager (UEM). In this blog entry I will walk through the process of capturing Google Chrome settings and incorporating that configuration into UEM. UEM can be deployed with […]
In one of my latest posts I wrote about private object storage not being for everyone… especially if you don’t have the size that makes it viable… But, on the other hand we are all piling up boatloads of data and users need to access it from many different locations, applications and devices at anytime.

A customer recently asked me “How do I replace the “external” SSL certificate of vCenter but still use VMCA in default mode?” Ever curious, I asked “Why?”. His security team required that any “externally” facing management web pages needed to have a custom certificate that chained up to the corporate PKI. But behind that, they […]
From the early days of VMware, it became clear that dealing with storage in efficient and scalable ways were key requirements for the success of virtualization in enterprise environments. Indeed, the storage stack of ESXi, including VMFS, played a key role in the proliferation of virtualization in data centers, where data is stored and managed by high-end disk arrays. Based on those foundations of storage virtualization, over the years, VMware introduced a range of availability and data…Read More
VMware vRealize Log Insight is a log analyser with capabilities to receive logs from regular syslog (so every device that can send syslog over the network) and from agents for Windows and Linux. Mostly every device can be configured to send logs to it and it can be used for quick and easy operation tasks, giving one a full picture of their environment. Inside Log Insight, you can install (or create your own) content packs. These content packs are a way to create dashboards with filtered data. The filtered data is usually determined by queries to the Log Insight search engine and is targeted to a specific product of which the data you want to see, for example: DRS actions, storage alerts, virtual machine snapshotting, etc. If it is logged…Read More
Decided to fill up the missing information which was not listed in the documentation of vRealize Operations neither was it stated anywhere by anyone in any blog post that I tried to Google around. Was doing a vSphere Optimization Assessment (VOA) and wanted to advise customer on the resources required. Other than the documentation from here or from the vR Ops Installation Guide, it does not state what was provided e.g. the different profile sizes of the vApp is suited for which type of environment other than running the deployment wizard. This is not very helpful especially when you are doing planning and the only way to get that information is to deploy it. Upon deploying, you will get to know the disk size that vR Ops will use. Based…Read More
