Your mom goes to VMworld 2010

Am I allowed to say that?

ooops the video I used was removed from youtube

Wow, it is almost here. Today I am getting ready for my flight to SFO tomorrow morning. This is a short post to preview what is planned for the blog during VMworld.

  • A daily recap blog. Getting all of the detail of the days is going to be a big task. So much will be going on there is no way I will get it all but I will give my perspective on that is going on.
  • A video feature. I am teaming up with @kevin_miller and we will be getting some “unique” perspectives from people in and around VMworld. If no one will cooperate I will make something up. Need to find a mic.
  • Pictures from the In-n-Out meetup.

I do have some non-goofing around goals for the trip. There is a massive value to VMworld. I hope I get to all the sessions I want early enough to get in. I am looking for ways to improve what I do everyday which is design, implement and support VMware solutions. I am excited for cool new features as much as the next guy but too much focus on futures and you can miss the stuff that will help you right now.

  1. That sounds awesome, and I’m not a VM person! 8^D

    Have a blast and I’ll be keeping dibs on the blog! Don’t forget to hit up Pier 39 or the Boudin Sourdough place if you get a chance!

  2. How can I create a vCenter Server in Workstation 7 using/connecting to vSPhere ESXi 4.1?

    I have completed the ICM course and wish to hone my skill’s learnt on the course ready for an attempt at the VCP, I’ve been taking the VMware mock exam’s and Simon Long’s exam practice, but I need more practical skill’s. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I’m not too good at exams,because I get very nervous.


    1. Just install any vCenter supported OS in Workstation and setup vCenter. Also look at the blogs there is help out there for installing ESX in Workstation. If you have enough ram on your workstation you can run 2 x ESX Hosts and a vCenter. Enough to practice all the basics of the VCP.
