Newsletter: July 3, 2021

Hello all,

I hope you all had a good week and were safe too. Good week here and safe too. i hope you liked my article on looking for tigers. We had a lot of fun with that trip.

I got my lab working but the next morning everything was dis-associated. VMs, datastores, vCenter. There was no storage or electrical outage. So I do not know what happened at all. Investigation time now.

BTW, if any one out has comments on the newsletter please don’t hesitate to share those commands via the newsletter comments section. My readership is down, and so would like to learn why.

I have a lot to share and I am short on time. Lets get started.

Have a great week!
