30 juillet 2021 à 17:26

VMware vSphere 7 Update 2 finally offers a long-awaited Native Key Provider (NKP), which is built in in vSphere. It's not a "full blown" KMS server, as the NKP can only talk to vSphere and you can't point other things at it. It is a vSphere-only feature.

Analyze basic log output from VMware vSphere 7 products

21 juillet 2021 à 22:55

If you're running just a vSphere, and ESXi, the logging will be concentrated only from those two products. VMware has, however, a large portfolio of products, each of which has its own logging. It is probably best to send logs from all VMware products to a remote logging server that can ingest the logs and present you with a graphical UI that also allows advanced search capabilities for specific issues.

Configuration of vSphere 7 DRS affinity and anti-affinity rules

4 juin 2021 à 18:21

VMware vSphere 7 has a really good system for configuring different workloads and their requirements. You might have VMs that are meant to stay together on the same host, or you might have VMs that should not be executed on the same host. VMware calls this VM-to-VM affinity and anti-affinity rules. When studying to pass the VMware VCP-DCV exam, knowledge of affinity and anti-affinity rules is required.
