Nice little document on VMTN listing useful ESX based PDF’s

I have just come across an excellent resource complied by Rodney Haywood,  Rodos on the forums.  How often do you know about a Document that you have seen, but can not remember where or when.  Well chances are you can find it here http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-2590

So all kudos to Rodos

Happy New Year

Welcome to 2009,  I hope that this will be a prosperous and happy one for you.

This Year is looking to be a pivotal one for Virtualisation,  VMware has vSphere on the horizon,  Citrix will continue to aggressively target the VDI space with XenDesktop,  and further the stalking tiger Mircrosoft will be releasing Live Migration for Hyper-V.

Install XPe as a ESX Guest

Just came across the following post,  How to create a XPe guest on ESX,  I have got to say well done to Zach Tibbitts of Collegegeek.org.

It may be easier to read the above after reading Zach other post on running XPe as a guest, this time on Workstation.

Again well done of a couple of excellent posts.

What to do with your NICs

I was going to post on pNIC configuration in ESX,  but it seems that Ed Haletky (Texiwill) has already done so,

Why reinvent the wheel I say,  thank you Ed for an excellent series of posts
