Hi all, It was fun to see this morning that the vSphere 6.0 Update 2 bits dropped last night. This is a big release - particularly vCenter. Quite a few new things but also a lot of fixes, and really a lot of things to watch out for. The release notes is a serious read! … Continue reading My vSphere 6.0 Update 2 Update
So, maybe you saw this when you logged into your appliance to upgrade to vSphere 6.0 U2 this morning? Or maybe you logged into your vCenter first and saw this? And when you go into System Configuration and check out your vCenter node you see this. Which seems to indicate there is no problem. So … Continue reading Why is my vCenter Appliance Health Red?
I have written before how much I like the Dell OpenManage Integration for VMware vCenter tool. You can find my articles on it via this tag. In my past life at DataGravity, and before it at VMware, I used it to keep all my Dell firmware current. It was easy and simple, and even used … Continue reading Updating Dell hosts – when I don’t have the cool tool!
Hi there, I am a very big fan of the ESXi Host Client (EHC) - it really helped me out yesterday and I did not have to use a Windows desktop to get the vSphere Client working. I did some Googling today and learned that there is a bit of info on working with the … Continue reading Automated Install of EHC v6 using VUM

My first exposure was when I was part of Integration Engineering in R&D at VMware. We had a management cluster that held our GA management software, and we had compute … Continue reading Management Cluster (Stack?) thoughts
Hi all, I hope everyone had a good week? I sure did, but I am in fact looking forward to the weekend. I have not been home for a week yet, so a full weekend at home is nice to look forward to. But, want to know something a little odd? I am unemployed, and … Continue reading Newsletter: March 11, 2016

So today, when I had it working and the clients working I was … Continue reading Protected Object when trying to connect to my APC UPS web UI
Hi there, I recently removed Zimbra from my lab, and am using hMailserver. I need this for things like Veeam, Log Insight, APC UPS, vCenter and other apps to be able to share with me. I like to get backup reports, admin warnings, test results and other things via email. Much more powerful when I … Continue reading hMailserver and email clients
I am, or rather used to be, a Zimbra user. Was nice to have the Zimbra appliance as it was easy to get working.

And like … Continue reading Setup of hMailserver in my lab
