This is just a little autocelebrative post :)
I’ve passed my exam some day ago, so now I’m a VCP!!!
I’m really happy and proud about that, so I want to share this feeling with all the world!
A special thanks goes to my wife, that has supported me all the time.
And a big thanks to all the blogger: all your posts has been useful in the preparation.
I will do a future post about the sources that I’ve used for studying. I want to just mention one here:
This study notes and the practice exams are really useful. Thanks Simon!
VMware vSphere 4.0u2, VMware vCenter 4.0u2, Update Manager 4.0u2 and VMware Data Recovery 1.2 released
Yesterday VMware released update 2 for it’s vSphere 4.0 platform.
This release includes:
- ESX/ESXi 4.0 update 2
- vCenter Server 4.0 update 2
- vCenter Update Manager 4 Update 2
- VMWare Data Recovery 1.2
There are no new features in ESX/ESXi and vCenter.
The update for ESX/ESXi primarily introduces additional hardware support, in particular FT support for Intel Xeon 34xx, Xeon56xx and Core i3/i5 CPUs.
The update for vCenter introduces environment customization for additional guest operating systems: the most notable for me are SLES 11, RedHat 4.8, 5.4, 5.5 and Debian 5.0
The update for Update Manager improve reliability of operations on hosts in low bandwitdh/lossy networks.
The most interesting update is VDR 1.2. Here there are new features:
- File Level Restore now available to use in linux
- Up to 10 Data Recovery backup appliance for each vCenter
- Support for fast switching among Data Recovery backup appliances.
- Miscellaneous vSphere Client Plug-In user interface enhancements
The major enhancement (for my use) is the support for FRL in linux!
