Hands-on experience is a great way to learn, especially new technologies. On this post we'll create Hyper-V VMs inside VMware Workstation, and then continue setting up everything that will make up our Nested Hyper-V lab.
Though we can't talk to our VI verbally just yet like how we'd do with Sir, Google Assistant, or Bixby, we can use vRealize Operations Manager (vROps) to deliver intelligent operations management. Here's how to install, run, and test vROps on VMware Workstation.
Ever wondered if it's possible and how it would be like if you run virtual machines from an external hard drive connected to the USB port of your computer? I did, and I finally had the opportunity to get things together to test it out. Check out this post to find out what happened.
Microsoft Office 2016 Click-to-Run doesn't come without caveats under its fancy GUI and effortless installation. Namely, the trouble of installing other members of the Office family like Visio and Project on the same machine. Here's how you can make that reunion happen.
Auto Deploy is a system / infrastructure that should allow us to watch a new ESXi host auto-magically appear on our vSphere environment to contribute its resources. Everything is done for us autonomously after we mount an ESXi host in our datacenter, connect it to the appropriate network, and turn it on. Here's how to configure it.
Configuring PXE boot on a virtual machine running on VMware Fusion is slightly different compared to how we do it on physical machines. Here's how to easily get it done.
Due to my apparent predicament, I've decided to promote my mobile workhorse, a MacBook Pro (MBP), to a portable virtual infrastructure (VI) lab too. And on this post, I'll share some tips that could help with building vSphere 6.5 lab on a MacBook too, and some experiences that could spare you the trouble managing it.
Even without the things that you are going to see on this post, I already like to eat raw spinach, in a dish, of course. Now, I shared some of my healthy spinach smoothie sans refined sugar, nor sweetened milk, to someone who loathes this dark greens and she actually enjoyed it.
The 23 GB capacity of NetApp CDOT simulator is fine for playing around with some storage features, but can be limiting for other tests we'd like to run. Let's install and reconfigure the simulator to have almost 19x storage capacity.
Sometimes when I create new nested ESXi servers only 1 NIC shows up. Here's how to get the rest working properly.
