The last days I had an issue with the vapi endpoint service. This was caused when I recreated the VMCA Solution Certificates with the Certificate Manager. BTW: VMware Support advised me to do so :/ The complete Message was: “Failed to connect to d30d9c10-e830-4a2e-b2dd-12de77fc11a3\com.vmware.cis.cls.vapi vAPI provider.” Look what other services are affected by this issue and how to fix it.

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.

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 😉
