Four months have already passed this year and therefor it’s not strange to start thinking about VMworld!
This year, the event will take place in August (Las Vegas) and September (Barcelona), compared to previous years as the Europe event used to be in October.
This morning I gave an internal presentation to my colleagues about upgrading vCloud Networking & Security (vCNS) to NSX including vCloud Director (vCD), as there’s still quite some customers that need to follow up on this. In this article, you can find my remarks and key takeaways that might assist you in performing the upgrade without any hassle.
As it’s getting cold and chilly outside, I though it was a good idea to get my hands on something hot. Something hot you say? Yeah, I know, it’s not a term which I usually mix up with IT-related stuff, but hey! I’ll promise you it’s good =) And no, I’m not talking about a hot tub.
Today I encountered an issue where, in a multi-cell vCloud Director environment, warnings were popping up in the /opt/vmware/vcloud-director/logs/cell.log:
Warning: unable to verify the following cells share the transfer spooling area.
This article describes what this means and how to fix it.
While new versions of vSphere are being released and deployment methods have been changed, it’s currently not so straight forward to deploy a vSphere lab inside Fusion and Workstation. This due to the fact that there is no OVF-based vCenter Server Appliance install available anymore (as of vSphere 6) and there is some manual fiddling required to make this work. This article will describe the steps you need to take for deployment.
Starting with vSphere 6, components for license, certificate management and SSO are being handled by the PSC (Platform Services Controller). This new part of a vSphere installation can be configured to be highly available.
I came across an issue where a fresh installation of vCenter Server 6.0 using an external high availability deployment of PSC would fail with a certificate or invalid credentials error. This article describes the issue and how it was solved.
This article is all about the experiences I gained with presenting at the NLVMUG conference last March. Read on to learn about my preparations and do’s (and don’ts).
I got some exciting news to share with you all regarding my career path! It’s something I’m really proud of and am looking forward to the end of May. Why you think? Well..
Besides the presentation I had to give at the NLVMUG conference on the 19th of March, I had another cool appointment that day: interviewing Joe Baguley!
I was able to get a few minutes of his time for a one-on-one interview and ask him some personal and technical related questions.
