    Fed up! How can we disable / block ICMP (ping) on ESXi 6 hosts? We need an expert!!!

    I don't believe you are going to be able to disabe ICMP on the host, vcenter has functions that utilize ICMP. It could help if you could post a sanitized network map, another thing you could do is block ICMP using a firewall

    Too much experience to be hired?

    Is it possible to have too much experience in this field? Over the years I've moved up the pay scales, however, I'm still not in the 100k range yet but very close. I have an issue which is no one wants to pay for my level of experience, I've even made a move to another state which is more suited...

I think most would agree that if they could run ESXi at home they would, I run Xen because it's free but it does have quite a few pain points. I'm going to join the club and go...
