Installing a basic View 3 environment is a fairly straight forward process.
On the vCenter Server
Make sure your hardware and operating system requirements are compliant:
I had to kill one of my vms as it wasn’t moving through virtual center. Now I’m getting the following error:
Could not power on VM: No swap file. Failed to Power on VM.
Why some alarms don’t matter
An alarm is per definition only useful if it shows only when there is a real problem. If everyone’s car alarm would activate each and every day, soon no one will bother to even look up from their work if they hear an alarm go off.
I recently needed to configure an ESXi 4.0 server to use the new multi-pathing capability along with jumbo frames. I have done this in the past with “classic” ESX using this fantastic post by Chad Sakac and friends which uses the ESXCFG commands within the service console. As ESXi doesn’t have a service console I had to do a little research to figure it out. The information is out there but it took a bit of finding so I decided to post the process here.
