That annoying vSphere “Failed to Deploy OVF package” message.tonywilburnCapture1Capture2Capture3

I’ve had this happen to me a couple of times now.  Someone creates a new image they want to use, export it as an ova file and they give it to you to use.  A pretty simple procedure, but unfortunately, many times, the admin forgets to remove the ISO they were using before exporting.  So […](image)

Add NFS datastores to ESXi hosts with PowerCLItonywilburn

Sat, 01 Mar 2014 20:50:00 +0000

This is such a quick and easy script I just had to share.  Others out there have versions of this script, but I had trouble finding one that would add a datastore to every host in a given cluster.  This works: get-cluster | get-vmhost | New-Datastore -NFS -Name -Path / […](image)

The Cloud, A place for my stuff.tonywilburn

Back again from a long break, too long I know.  I really have to set more time aside to blog.  I won’t call that a New Year’s resolution, if I do, I know I’ll break it.  Let’s call it a goal.  That sounds much easier to attain. The Cloud If you are in IT you […](image)

VMworld 2012 – Days 2 and 3tonywilburn

Thu, 30 Aug 2012 07:12:33 +0000

In thinking about my post from yesterday, I think I may have come across as too hard on the vendors in the Solutions Exchange.  That wasn’t my intent.  There are some very good vendors, really a lot of good vendors on the floor.  I had a great talk with the guys at HP, and got […](image)

I know, I know, I said I would do better at posting and all of a sudden 6 months have gone by without a post.  It’s been a busy 6 months.  Both at home and at work.  But that’s no excuse, so hopefully VMworld will inspire me to get back into the flow.  I’ll try […](image)

Federal Cloud – Is it a Cloud or isn’t it?tonywilburn

Thu, 18 Aug 2011 15:50:30 +0000

Since I started working for a Federal Cloud provider, I’ve had to re-think the way I look at things.  I’ve been in the D.C. area for a couple of years now and have worked on several government agency IT projects, but the cloud has changed things.  First, everyone knows about the red tape.  Yes, there […](image)

VMworld 2010- My impressionstonywilburn

Wed, 15 Sep 2010 19:44:37 +0000

I apologize for not blogging more, life has been hectic since changing jobs.  I did get away for my annual pilgrimage to VMworld.  This is my 5th year in a row, and I have to say, I was not very impressed.  Much of my frustration has to do with the sessions.  Or more accurately, my inability to […](image)

So, the other day I was standing in line waiting to add money to my METRO card when I saw one of the best examples of the wrong way to troubleshoot.  There was a woman in front of me adding money to her card.  She was trying to rush things, so with credit card in […](image)

Setting MPIO with NetApp Virtual Storage Console (VSC)tonywilburn1234567891011121314

Tue, 20 Apr 2010 13:06:06 +0000

Recently I discovered the NetApp Virtual Storage Console (VSC) with vSphere.  I really like the way it sets the MPIO for my VMFS LUNs.  I had trouble finding step by step documentation on setting this up, so I put together my own guide. NOTE:  This must be done for every Initiator Group on each SAN […](image)

So last week Bridget over at Tech Target sent an email asking for my opinion for this article she was writing about the Microsoft VDI announcement.  I gave it a moment’s thought and sent her back this comment which she used in the article: I never imagined that two little sentences would be posted and […](image)
