VMWare Storage Vmotion Rocks

Well after we got our cluster back online and sorted after the offical patch for 3.5update 2 was released. I installed the Storage Vmotion plugin for virtual center and migrated one of my test vm's from one LUN to another , while still being logged in and running my applications.

All I can say is SWEET !!!!!!! my plan's are to get another tray which I will set aside for Storage Vmotion and Snapshot's in our server room , to have for DR and upgrade related issues with the SAN.

Time/Date Bug Vmware ESX Server 3.5 update 2

There seems to be a bug in the latest release of Vmware ESX 3.5 update , which stops vm hosts from powering up.

This is due to a time/date bug you'll need to roll your clock/date back 10 days on your ESX hosts to get the up and running.

Vmware are working on a fix stay tuned to the downloads page for the fix
