Released: vCloud Director SP 8.20 with HTML5…

This week, VMware released vCloud Director SP version 8.20 (build 5070630) which marks the 8th Major Release for vCloud Director since 1.0 was released in 2010. Ever since 2010 the user interface give or take a few minor modifications and additions has been the same. It also required flash and java which has been a pain point for a long time and in someways unfairly contributed towards a negative perception around vCD on a whole.

Certification Insights: Multiple Accounts

Having multiple accounts within the VMware myLearn system could result in incomplete records of your exam, training, and certification history. For example, if you attended a training course on one account, but took your VCP exams on a different account, you may not receive proper credit for meeting certification requirements.

Join a Platform Services Controller 6.5 to…

After the initial deployment of your vCenter Server Appliance and Platform Services Controller, one of the first things that you want to do if you are using Active Directory is to join your PSC to the domain. In this blog post we are going to walk through doing just that. Like Active Directory domain controllers, the PSC really depends on time being synchronized within your network.

SDRS VM settings always set to fullyautomated…

Came across an issue when doing deployment of VMs using the PowerCli cmdlet New-VM. If not specified and deployed into a datastore cluster, SDRS behavior will always be set to automated. Even if the datastore clusters default setting is set to something else. It seems weird to bypass the datastore clusters default settings and per default just set it to automated, but that is just how it is at the moment.
