We design highly redundant Datacenters, Clusters, Storage Systems and even Networks, but in the end we still have some unplaned outages :/ This week we had a defect Memory DIMM that caused a PSOD on one ESXi Host. HA restarted the VMs fine, but we want to know quickly which VMs restarted. Check out a PowerCLI one liner to find the restarted VMs!
Check out the new Fling DRS Lens! It shows you a litte more how DRS is taking action.
I would like to show you my stumbling blocks when migrating to VCSA.
I would like to encourage you to report your bugs with the smiley at the top right corner.
A few days ago vSphere 6.0 Update 3 was announced. Beside the bugfixes and security updates there is a feature I would like to turn out.
I’m happy to be listed as vExpert 2017 for the first time 😀
Recently I had to upgrade from vCenter 6.0 U2 to 6.0 U2a because of this WebClient Bug (KB 2144934) But there are many stumbling blocks I would like to inform you about!
Today I had the challenge to restore once a week multiple VMs that are used for VPN Client Testing. I would like to share my script with you 😉
Don’t put your credentials into the PowerCLI scripts! There is an option to store your credentials on the Host.
You have to look at the Modules in PowerCLI 6.5. When you wrote your Scripts with the PowerShell ISE you had to load the PSSnapins before. In 6.5 there are no longer PSSnapins! Now there are only Modules!
