From the editors Virtual Desk
Hi everyone, hope you have all had a good week and enjoying the biggest sporting event in the world. I have had quite a busy week and have spent time looking at some VMware solutions for my customers that I have not had the chance to use in the past.

The first of these is Application Discovery Manager (ADM), I am still learning about this solution but suffice to say that it is one amazingly powerful solution to map out your application’s and all of their connections. Once you start to use this technology it is amazing what you find out about your environment. ADM is able to map connections to all of your systems and is particularly useful in a heterogenous environment with both virtual and physical servers still in play.

Continuing on this theme I have also started to work with VMware Infrastructure navigator (VIN). This solution is much easier to install and have up and running very quickly. It is targeted at your virtualised environment and can quickly start to map connections between all of your applications. One really useful feature is that if you are running SRM then it can discover the SRM resources and alert you to any potential issues should you require to fail over to your DR site but may have dependencies that are not part of the DR plan, quickly ensuring that your DR plan will actually work as required.

A busy week to say the least and I will be continuing with both of these solutions for the next few weeks and start to understand their role in the management and compliance stack for my customers.

Have a great week.

Best Wishes

Who Moved My App? VMware’s “Cheese-Aware” Application Management

 

Learn more about vFabric Application Performance Manager:

 

Click Here

 

Did you ever read the book “

Who moved my cheese?” It was a 5-year New York Times Bestseller by Dr. Spencer Johnson.

 

The book speaks of how people react to change and offers several approaches to coping with change. The author, very eloquently, identifies the challenges of reacting and adapting to various changes in our lives.

 

In the book, Dr. Johnson helps us to understand that as we mature, we come to realize that change is constant: people change, schedules change, jobs change, friends change, and more. We are, for the most part, able to intellectually and emotionally cope and continue moving forward.

 

 

VMware on How Big Data Meets Fast Data in the Cloud

 

Big Data allows you to find opportunities you didn’t know you had.

 

Fast Data allows you to respond to opportunities before they’re gone.

 

The combination of Big Data and Fast Data working together may enable new business models you never could have achieved before.

 

To elaborate, the idea here is to analyze the historical "Big Data" and look for trends or patterns that have lead to good results in the past. Then you try to model those patterns in such a way that you can detect them as they are unfolding in real-time based on incoming Fast Data. If we could analyze large amounts historical as well as recent data quickly enough, we have an opportunity to influence the behaviors of the actors real-time, and have a better chance to steer them toward the patterns that produce results.

 

 

Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse Now Supports Tunneling to Services

 

Today we announce a new release of Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse which features the ability to open a tunnel to any Cloud Foundry data service. Now Eclipse users can use familiar client applications to directly analyze, manipulate, or port the data contained in their Cloud Foundry applications.

VMware Provider Guide: Help Customers Move Workloads to the Cloud (Part 1)

 

Enterprises small and large deploy public clouds with the goal of minimizing costs by decreasing IT infrastructure and increasing usage of a private cloud. However, some offerings in the market make it expensive and time-consuming for customers to make this transition to the cloud. At VMware, our vCloud Powered public clouds offer smoother workload transition with an easy-to-use approach and tools that customers are already familiar with.

 

 

VMware Provider Guide: Help Customers Move Workloads to the Cloud (Part 2)

 

In

Part 1 of this series, we walked through accessing the vCloud Connector user interface via the vSphere client. In Part 2, we’ll break down how to access the interface over the Internet using a standard Web browser.

Microsoft Lync 2010 with VMware View 5.0

 

There has been a lot of buzz and excitement last week around VMware’s announcement and plans to support Microsoft Lync 2013 (

http://blogs.vmware.com/euc/2012/07/microsoft-lync-2013-support-with-vmware-view-desktops.html).  With Microsoft Lync 2013 and VMware View, customers will have full access to Unified Communications and Collaboration capabilities, and Office 15 integration.

 

 

VMware View Client with Local Mode: Curious about how it works?

 

Do your virtual desktop users need to disconnect from the network, travel with their laptops, and use their virtual desktops offline? Or do you have a bring-your-own-computer (BYOC) program and want to install a corporate virtual desktop on users’ computers? VMware View Client with Local Mode is the answer for these user scenarios.

 

This blog post is about the clever workings of VMware View Client with Local Mode. This kind of information fascinates me, and if it fascinates you, read on.

Hi all, we're doing another survey of our SRM customers to try to understand your usage and inform our product management decisions with some hard data.  If you get a chance to do the survey we'd appreciate it - shouldn't take more than 15 minutes of your time.

 

Thanks!

Advanced VMkernel Settings for Disk Storage

 

As regular readers will know by now, many of these blog posts are a result of internal discussions held between myself and other VMware folks (or indeed storage partners). This one is no different. I was recently involved in a discussion about how VMs did sequential I/O, which led me to point out a number of VMkernel parameters related to performance vs fairness for VM I/O. In fact, I have seen other postings about these parameters, but I realised that I never did post anything myself.

 

 

NetApp and IBM both vMSC certified...

 

More and more storage vendors are certifying their stretched cluster solutions. Recently NetApp and IBM have both been added to the VMware HCL. Below you can find the links to the KB article which describe the supported configuration and the tested scenarios.

 

Implementing vSphere Metro Storage Cluster using IBM System Storage SAN Volume Controller

 

vSphere 5.0 support with NetApp MetroCluster

 

Implementing vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) using EMC VPLEX

 

Implementing vSphere Metro Storage Cluster using HP LeftHand Multi-Site

 

Those at the point of deploying a stretched cluster I would highly recommend reading these KB articles. Get as familiar as you can with the failure scenarios described, test them over and over again. This is key for operating a stretched cluster and will also give you a deep understanding of how your environment responds to failures.

 

 

VMware Employee DR Sessions at VMworld

 

As we're approaching VMworld I thought I'd write a quick post about the disaster recovery sessions being delivered by the VMware team this year.

 

Keep in mind, these are just the sessions being delivered by VMware staff, and just the DR sessions.  There is a lot more out there under the business continuity umbrella, including great sessions by our customers and partners, and exploring various topics such as data protection and high availability. 

 

 

Upgrading to vCenter Server 5.0 Update 1a can fail when using an Oracle database

 

if your planning to upgrade to vCenter Server 5.0 Update 1a and use Oracle as the backend database you may want to check out the following KB before you proceed.

 

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=2032277

 

There is a known issue that will show error: PLS-00905 STATS-ROLLUP2_PROC as invalid and prevent the upgrade from completing leaving you in an unusable state. Full resolution and recovery steps are described in the KB article

customer reference program to help you share your experiences. How is this different?

vSphere PowerCLI Blog: Waiting for OS customization to complete

 

Provisioning of new virtual machines often includes Operating System (OS) customization.

 

A typical provisioning workflow could look like this:

 

1.  Clone a virtual machine from a template and specify a customization specification

 

2.  Start the VM. This triggers the customization process

 

3.  Wait for the customization to complete

 

4.   Perform additional setup steps

 

 

VMware Go Blog: The Importance of Patching Third-Party Applications

 

Almost every organization has a methodology in place for patching Microsoft applications.  And as every savvy IT security professional knows, patches close vulnerabilities, which is critical to keeping data and business processes safe.  It’s the same old security story: lock one door and the thief will find another – and now we’ve got the whole vulnerability/patch war extending beyond Microsoft to applications from other vendors like Adobe and Apple.

 

 

vSphere PowerCLI Blog: VMware and Cisco UCS Integration

vCenter Orchestrator Blog: It's Raining vCenter Orchestrator Plug-ins!

 

With

VMworld 2012 preparations and other ongoing work, this blog announcement was WAY overdue.  But as the saying goes... "better late than never!"

 

In response to many customer requests, we are glad to announce the availability of two new vCenter Orchestrator (vCO) plug-ins and several updates to existing ones:

 

1. The NEW

vCenter Configuration Manager workflow package allows organizations to automate compliance and patching operations around VM templates and guest operating systems.  A must-have... unless you have the time or enjoy doing this manually, one template at a time... ;-)

 

2.  The NEW

vCenter Chargeback Manager plug-in helps automate the on-boarding of new cloud customers and configuration of chargeback reports.  Try it today!

Office of the CTO Blogs: The Post-BlackBerry Era

 

In June 2010 Steve Jobs famously declared that the Post-PC era is upon us. Whether or not you agree with that statement, you will no doubt agree that smartphones and tablets have completely revolutionized how we use mobile devices. One of the profound changes in this paradigm shift is the impact on RIM – so in this note, I make the case that we are in the Post-BlackBerry era and discuss what that means to IT professionals.

 

Before I talk about the Post-BlackBerry era, it is important to understand how things were in the BlackBerry era, which I call the Pre-iPhone era.

VCP5-Infrastructure as a Service - Mock Exam

 

The VMware Certified Professional 5 – Infrastructure as a Service (VCP5-IaaS)

validates your ability to install, configure and administer a Cloud environment using vCloud Director and related components. Achieving this certification demonstrates your understanding of basic cloud concepts including public/private/hybrid clouds, multi-tenancy and cloud security, as well as your skills in using vCloud Director to create and manage vApps, service catalogs, and organization/provider VDCs, as well as administering cloud enabled networking and storage.

 

DaaS Scalability and Elasticity

 

Giving continuity to my recent Desktop-as-a-Service series it’s time to tackle those components that make a true DaaS solution be able to dynamically provision and de-provision resources on-demand, near real-time, without users having to engineer for peak loads.

VMware View Recompose and MAC Address

 

This week I answered to this question to someone on Twitter and then I saw it again at VMware internal forums.

 

-  How to persist MAC Address during recompose operations?

 

 

VMware Fling Boomerang Now supports PCoIP via VMware View

 

VMware Boomerang is a radically simple client application that allows you to use multiple vSphere servers simultaneously. Simply select “Add a Server…” to connect and login to an ESX server, vCenter server, or View Connection Server and you will be presented with a list of all available virtual machines.

 

 

Zero Client Touch-Enabled Display

 

For couple months I had a GVISION 19″ TFT LCD Display on my work desk. No, it was not my primary display, but it was nice to test it. This display is a Touch Enabled device that runs PCoIP natively using the Teradici chipset and connect directly to VMware View just like other PCoIP zero client displays. The difference is that this one is touch screen.

 

 

EMC – CX4 FAST Cache cosmetic issues and using /debug

 

I noticed that one of our CX4s was exhibiting some odd behaviour the other day. When looking at the System Information window, I noticed that FAST Cache seemed broken. Here’s a picture of it.

 

 

SRM and SwapFiles

 

A while ago I had Skype chat with

Greg Mulholland – he’s based in Melbourne, Australia where  he is a Senior Infrastructure Consultant specializing in VMware and Storage (NetApp primarily). Occasionally, I am approached on Twitter, LinkedIn and email to answer questions and queries – and so long as I have the time I will sometimes jump on Skype to discuss it personally.

 

 

Building VMware End-User Computing Solutions with VMware View Book

 

Phew. I know it’s a long title. But I wanted to shoehorn the word “end-user computing” and Barry wanted “VMware View” in the title – so this is the mash-up we can up with.

 

It’s our joint pleasure to finally make available the end-user computing book that myself, and fellow vExpert, Barry Coombs – have been work in on for sometime. We never thought when we embarked on the project that it would take this length of time. That was partly caused by us both having other projects on the table, and the review process colliding with the release of VMware View 5.1 and ThinApp 4.7.2. It was also delayed by my sojourns into other complementary technologies such as vShield, Teradici APEX, ThinApp Factory and Horizon Application Manager.

Multicore your vCPUs

Hello again everyone and welcome to my sixth post in our series The Support Outsider, a look into VMware from the point of view of an outsider (that's me), Intern Moses Masih

.

This week was busier than usual but I did come across a cool feature which you can try for your virtual machines. I want to talk about turning single core virtual machines into multicore machines in vSphere and Workstation.

While working on a new video that deals with setting cores in a virtual machine: Setting the number of cores per CPU in a virtual machine (1010184)

so that its operating system can recognise the machine as having multi-core CPUs, I found that this process can be used in vSphere and Workstation 8. I tried it and set my single core virtual machines to 4-core machines and also came across some useful details that I will talk about.

 

Purple Diagnostics Screen Articles

 

One thing you'll never see mentioned in a VMware Knowedgebase article is the term PSOD. Those ominous letters harken back to the blue screen crashes we all have seen on Windows based computers. In VMware, our dump screens have a magenta (purple) background, and so the lingo goes:

 

BSOD = Blue Screen Of Death

 

PSOD = Purple Screen Of Death

 

We really hate the negative connotations that these short-forms impart and much prefer to refer to these as purple diagnostics screens, because they do contain a great deal of information you can use to help diagnose the problem you have encountered. Here's what one looks like:
