Virtualization links for this week

I’ve been really busy this week

  • patching my ESX hosts
  • troubleshooting ballooning problems
  • moving ESX hosts to other SAN switches
  • troubleshooting network/vlan problems
  • putting some effort in helping people out on the VMTN forum. Hey, I even got a top 5 ranking this week :-)
  • AND reading all those magnificent articles I found out this week
