    But what really defines it as a single appliance? A shared management tool? It's simply a buzzword from infrastructure vendors with the hopes of selling more gear. I've run VCE VBlock and Nutanix and it's all just smoke and mirrors...

    Buzzwords. That's it. And companies selling a single BOM for compute + network + storage + hypervisor.

    Does vsphere support any kind of hardware watchdog?

    His host locked-up one time and you're telling him to re-install ESXi. He should at least spend a few minutes taking a look at the server logs to see if he can find out what occurred.

    Does vsphere support any kind of hardware watchdog?

    This is bad advice. You have no idea what the issue is until you review the logs and perform some level of diagnostics.

    Some people really need to get a MacBook!

    Anyone suggesting that you use a MBP for photo editing doesn't know WTH they're talking about. The screen real estate is just too small. Also, the storage options are super limited and any external drive usage will probably end up going over WiFi (lag). I have Photoshop Elements on an Intel...

    is there a way to create a bootable USB that will allow partition management?

    GPARTED FTW. Been using this for years on Windows and Linux machines. It's awesome. Just be aware that moving your boot partition may cause some minor issues that you need to fix with bootrec /fixmbr /fixboot, etc.

    Windows Server 2016 experences?

    I've done some testing and validation on Server 2016 and it works fine. You just need to spend some time disabling the garbage like Windows Defender and the default high-res lock screen and backgrounds on your custom ISO or VM template. And regarding R2 versions being better than the first...

    Swap File

    This. How much of the 24GB are you actually using? You won't start encountering hard page faults until you're getting up their in physical memory usage %. Put it on the SSD and let the OS handle it. I doubt it will ever exceed a few GB in size and will be sparingly used.

    Could Web host that don't use Softwere

    Sure there is. You just leverage their REST API and GET/PUT/DELETE your files that way. But based on your post, I'm assuming that's probably a bit too complex.

    Patching 20-30 Windows VMs on My Laptop

    I'd recommend that the OP simply configure the patching policies via GPEDIT on one machine and then export/import the appropriate registry keys to all other systems. You can even add this to your VM template so you don't need to deal with it in the future.

    Best way to mass-move programs to another drive?

    There's a lot of bad advice in this thread. This is the method I've used numerous times with great success. Connect both disks. Boot up GParted LiveCD. Create a partition table on the new disk. Copy the partitions from the old disk to the new disk. Verify the bootable flags match the...

    My vmfs volume fails to mount due to being detected as a snapshot?

    Do you have snapshots configured on the ZFS appliance and exposed to the iSCSI initiators? Sometimes snapshot volumes cannot be mounted due to disk signature collision. Not sure if that is what's happening here, but it's possible.

    vSAN or not for home vSphere cluster

    I'd vote shared storage--preferably a Synology NAS serving up iSCSI or NFS. VSAN is pretty slick, but there is a lot to go wrong with it in a home lab. You also need 3 hosts vs. 2 with shared storage.

    "HostDatastoreSystem.CreateVmfsDatastore" for object "ha-datastoresystem" when adding drive to datas

    How did you format it on the other machine? I'd suggest doing a full wipe of the drive (not format) so that it has no data or filesystem when added to your ESXi host.

    Accidently deleted snapshot, anyway to recover? Still have the delta file.

    Please never try to edit files on VMFS file system if you aren't super super familiar with the ramifications. I'd suggest shutting down the VM and doing a 'Consolidate Disks' operation. It will flatten all snapshots into a single VMDK at the state you were earlier today. Your VM was likely at...

    VMware vSGA without Horizon?

    Thanks for the clarification on your question--many posters have a tendency to mix up the various graphics card terminology and I assumed your meant vGPU. Regarding the vSGA question, I've used Teradici offload cards to do this in the past. They required the VIB and guest VM driver to be...
