Here's my scenario: I have been trying to re-establish mirroring on my SQL Server 2008 R2 instance since a VMWare outage took it down a few months ago. Here are the servers I'm using: Primary- prodDB.mydomain.com, on DataCenter1 Mirror- recoveryDB.mydomain.com, on DataCenter2 Witness- testDB.mydomain.com, on DataCenter2 DataCenter1 and DataCenter2 are on different physical servers, in different locations. Each server is running in a VM on their respective data centers. Each has an external firewall and each data center is using Active Directory to route internal traffic. When I tried to set this back up after the VMWare outage, I was …

[ATTACH=RIGHT]21161[/ATTACH]Power, it’s a dirty word. Power corrupts, and I don’t just mean people and politicians. Power problems, impurities and inconsistencies are a huge contributor to problems with sensitive computer equipment. Power problems can damage hardware as well as your files and data. The losses and downtime that result from power problems cost the economy billions. Utility companies are not required by law to provide perfectly “clean” power. The “dirty” power that we get from the outlet comes with a number of impurities including blackouts, power sags, power surges, undervoltage (brownouts) and line noise.

When I install Server 2008 on vmware everything works fine and when I start everything loads fine too. When I have to restart and just restart it happens. It loads and stops at the boot screen and I dont know why. I read it could be because I'm using a SSD and should use a HDD so I did that and still same thing. -_- Here is a pic of what it look like when it stops (this is not from my computer but took it off google): http://boerlowie.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/image_thumb190.png?w=465&h=246 When it stops I try opening task manager to stop it …

I just made a virtual machine with windows 7 64-bit on my windows 7 desktop that is connected by LAN. I am trying to access the internet and after playing with the settings enough I am able to be connected to my internet but when I go to open a webpage like google then it says internet explorer cannot display webpage. If I could connect with either NAT or bridged I am not sure. Neither have worked for me despite what internet articles have said.

Windows 7 - VMWare Player 3.1 I recently got Ubuntu 11.04 installed and set up nicely in a virtual machine. I have fixed resolution problems and removed the top bar from the application so it looks almost like an actual native GNOME desktop. However, as I will be using this VM in class, I really don't want to wait for all of Windows to boot and then load VMWare and select the guest OS. When VMWare was setting itself up, it created a user account for itself (my machine no longer automatically logs me in, I need to click on …

So I get the error CPU has been disabled by guest os. Power off or restart. But if I power off, it shuts down. I wana run it. Then error again... I tryed: - Disabled all unnecessary hardware. - Turned off USB Legacy support in BIOS. - Found no explicit CPU virtualization setting in BIOS... - Messed with every setting of the virtual machine. - cpuid.1.eax = "0000:0000:0000:0001:0000:0110:1010:0101" stuff. Then everything again. - Tryed this with 5 preinstalled VMware osx. (10.5; 10.6; 10.7) - Also tryed to install 3 osx to another hdd without virtualization. Those are also not working. …

That's right, create your own Linux virtual appliances with [URL="http://www.vmware.com/appliances/learn/vmware_studio.html"]VMware Studio[/URL]. Appliances are small, single purpose servers that provide a service to users. Some examples are Content Management Systems (CMS), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, web servers, mail servers, DNS servers, database servers, and so on. VMware Studio is actually a virtual machine (VM) image that runs in VMware Server, VMware Player, and possibly their other products. To use the Studio, download and boot the VM. Instructions on how to access the web-based interface are displayed to you on the VM's console. The appliance-building process is simple but requires that …

Jim Whitehurst, [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat, Inc.[/URL] CEO, believes that [URL="http://www.vmware.com"]VMware[/URL] is its biggest competition in the virtualization and cloud computing space. In a [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/199870/red_hat_ceo_vmware_our_biggest_competitor.html"]PCWorld article[/URL], Whitehurst stated Friday at the Red Hat Summit that "When you start thinking about who is defining cloud-based architectures, it's us and them [VMware]," he said. "We're the only two companies that have the components to really do cloud." Whitehurst has possibly never heard of Ubuntu Linux and its cloud offering, [URL="http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud"]UEC[/URL]. Whitehurst continued, [QUOTE]"Technically, it's a perfectly fine vision. Commercially, I worry about the lock-in and VMware defining the stack," he said. Cloud computing favors …

[URL="http://redhat.com"]Red Hat[/URL] Enterprise Linux now comes with built-in virtualization ([URL="http://linux-kvm.org"]KVM[/URL]) but is Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) about to go to the virtual mat with [URL="http://vmware.com"]VMware[/URL]?

The topic of certification surfaces every so often in technical circles--especially when job seekers face tough job competition. The value of such certifications comes into question versus that of years of experience. For experienced technicians and engineers, the opinion is that experience is the most important for landing a job. In the minds of newbies and wannabes, certifications rule. Certifying authorities and vendors, of course, want you to spend the money obtaining the certifications and are ready to cite instances where certification is required for employment. I, myself, was caught up in the certification frenzy back in the early 90s …

This just in: [URL="http://www.redhat.com"]Red Hat, Inc[/URL]. just announced today that its Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (REV) now includes the ability to run Virtual Desktop Infrastructure or VDI. I've been a long time anti-VDI voice but Red Hat just might be the one to pull it off and make it work with its KVM and the SPICE protocol both of which were acquired in their 2008 purchase of Qumranet. If any non-container technology can make VDI work sufficiently, it is KVM and SPICE.

I'm trying to find some VM software that can access more than 256mb of the video card. Parallels tops out at 256mb. It won't let you access more than that. The machine I intend to run this on will be an 8core mac pro workstation desktop with 8gigs of RAM or more and a terabyte HD. This will be for doing 3d rendering, not to create images, but to create models that I can send to a 3d printer or CNC mill. The problem is I already own the 3d rendering software and it is for Windows, and I am …

Did you hear that one of the web's most popular web-based collaboration suites, [URL="http://www.zimbra.com"]Zimbra[/URL], was purchased by virtualization leader, [URL="http://www.vmware.com"]VMware[/URL]? Zimbra customers like the idea of VMware owning the software suite. Industry observers have differing opinions on the topic.

Is this VMware-Zimbra connection a good idea? I think everyone wins in this situation. I know, this is a departure for me. Perhaps it's the new year, the new decade or that this is one of those rare …

This post has nothing to do with Michael Jackson, his death, his kids, his Neverland Ranch or anything related to him. It has everything to do with my need for a virtual laboratory where I can test virtual machines, write about them or produce other documentation about them without a significant financial outlay of my own. I call this virtual playground, Neverland, because currently it is a fantasy of mine and the way many see it--it's likely to remain so. Last week, I posted "[URL="http://www.linux-mag.com/id/7397"]My Midsummer Night's Dream of A Virtual Lab[/URL]" on my Virtualization column at [URL="http://www.linux-mag.com"]Linux Magazine[/URL] to …
