PureApplication System V2.2.2.1 and VMware Remote Console 9

Is there documentation on how to utilize VMware Remote Console 9 to Console into a virtual machine via the Virtual Machines Instance page on PureApplication System V2.2.2.1? Previous PureApp versions did not require VMRC 9, but due to vCenter going from 5 to 6 in PureApplication System V2.2.2.1, it is now required. Please, advise. Thanks!


VMware ESX/ESXi – Snapshot Age

VMware is a virtualization platform many of our clients use – both VMware ESX and ESXi. VMware allows hardware resources to be utilized better and deploys new servers with much less effort than ever before. With Intelligent Monitoring you will have easy access to all key VMware performance information including information on VMware performance, resource consumption, and snapshots – just to name a few.

In this scenario, some work was performed on a number of virtual Windows Servers quite a while ago. To establish a restore point (in case something went wrong), the VMware administrator took a snapshot of the servers with the intention of keeping the snapshot for a few days. With other priorities on her schedule, she had forgotten about the snapshots.

With Intelligent Monitoring and the TOP 10 Dashboards feature, you could quickly identify the snapshot age making the task easier for the administrator to remote the snapshots and release the disk space. The TOP 10 Dashboards can very quickly draw attention to patterns or issues that would otherwise go unnoticed.

VMware ESX/ESXi – Snapshot Age



How to run VMWare ESX or ESXi in a virtual machine?

  • It runs REALLY slowly.
  • It lets you create VMs, but when powering up them it gives an error stating "You may not power on a virtual machine in a virtual machine".
