Useful VMware Reference Posters!

(NSX/VCSA 6.5/PowerCLI 6.5/PSC Toplogy Tree)

 

For all those VMware techies out there that work with VMware solutions on a daily basis, it’s hard to remember everything we need to know related to the many solutions we manage. So VMware has created several VMware Reference Posters to help us out when we need a little reminder as far as a command-line argument, configuration option, etc.

At the VMware provided website, they have provided us with (3) reference posters for working with PowerCLI 6.5 R1, vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA), and Platform Services Controllers (PSC) Topology Decision Tree. Click on the below link to go to the VMware Reference Poster site and download your copy of these great tools!

Although not listed in the above site, there is also a NSX Reference Poster that is also available! So for those that are managing VMware NSX, I highly recommend you download this poster and keep it handy, I am sure you will need to use it at some point in time while managing NSX.

The dimensions for the NSX posters are designed to be printed in a high-resolution A3 size (no lower than 300 dpi). 

  • In inches: 11.7 x 16.5
  • In mm: 297 x 420

Automatic space reclamation (UNMAP) is back in vSphere 6.5 -via vSphere-land

Automatic space reclamation (UNMAP) is back in…

A long time ago in a vSphere version far, far away VMware introduced support for automatic space reclamation which allowed vSphere to send UNMAP commands to a storage array so space from deleted or moved VMs could be un-allocated (reclaimed) on the storage array. This was a welcome feature as block storage arrays have no visibility inside a VMFS volume so when any data is deleted by vSphere the array is unaware of it and it remains allocated on the array. UNMAP was supposed to fix that so when data was deleted vSphere would send a string of UNMAP commands to the array telling it exactly which disk blocks it could have back.
