Whenever a new vSphere version comes out, I upgrade at least one of my clusters to it but when I get a chance, also install a new fresh one. So, the time has come for me to build a fresh vSphere 6 cluster. Normally, I just do an install with all the standard things done […]
Like last year, I had a chance to attend UK VMUG UserCon 2015 this year too and looking at the line up, I simply couldn’t miss the opportunity. As I am working independently now, these gatherings are of even more importance to me as not only there’s learning; it’s my chance to catch up with […]
So, it was the last day. It had been quite a hectic week so far (as always) but activities were still going strong. First order of the day was for me to get to the venue, leave my suitcase with the bag drop and get the update post for day 2 published that I wasn’t able to […]
On Day 2, I got to the venue early and published my update for Day 1 of VMworld Europe 2015. Once that was done, it was time for some breakfast and lots of coffee.
It is customary to start Day 2 with a General Session and this time, it was EUC (End User Computing) and NSX’s turn […]
Yesterday was Day 1 of the main event. I got to the venue, bright and early, and helped myself to a great selection of bakery items. Also, didn’t forget to fill me up with lots of caffeine, which I so desperately needed. I’ve only attended VMworld in Barcelona so not sure if the US version is […]
Yes, after the confusion last year on what number are the days, I’ve decided to go for a neutral name. Avoids all the naming issues (unlike the products we work with every day!)
Got to Barcelona at about noon on Sunday and checked in. Had to sacrifice the start of Russian GP (Formula 1) but hey, the […]
Like many of you, I am also looking forward to attending VMworld this year. I have a feeling that this year, VMware has left a bit more for Barcelona than last year and I hope my hunch is right.
Just thought I should do a quick post, listing the sessions I have booked for myself, in […]
Like last year, I am attending VMworld EMEA as an official blogger. VMware has kindly granted me a pass for keeping you all informed with all the activities, technical or not. Having attended a few of these now, I thought it would be a good idea to jot down a few pointers, in case you […]
On a couple of engagements in the recent past, I encountered situations where I was configuring Inbound/Outbound mail for newly-installed vRealize Automation environments. Despite assurances from mail admins that settings provided to me by them were correct, I found that mail didn’t just work smoothly and I had to do some minor investigations. There isn’t […]
I don’t know about you but I happen to be pretty lazy when it comes to taking breaks while working in front of a computer. This is especially true if I am working from home. There is always “let me finish this first and then I’ll take a break” which of course, never happens.
Knowing that […]
