    Even Mark Hamill Hates the 'New' Luke Skywalker

    I give SW TLJ a solid meh/10. Disappointed in the direction and how they treated Luke's character and Disney/director just didn't care about the past franchise at all. It should be a fun, campy, space opera with a good story with the protagonists. Mix in some hope and the audience should be...

    2 node Vsan 6.1 cluster - Anyone have this running?

    Just setting up a new 2 node Vsphere cluster and wondering if anyone has setup a 2 node Vsan 6.1 using the stretched mode ? If so, wondering what drive configuration you used, if you'd do it again and how it performs. I have the licensing through Vmug., Was hoping to have around 2-4 TB per...

    New build ideas

    I can't seem to find the HCL for the memory of this board yet? If I do VSAN I am looking at SSD's, more than likely the EVO's. Any reason not to get EVO's over the pro's? I am probably going 2 x 512GB SSD per machine.

    New build ideas

    Hmmm, the Xeon D's look interesting. I could afford to get 3 of them and put them in a cluster with 32GB of memory each and then use vsan for my datastore. I would love to play around with 10G right to the desktop but the prices are still too high for my likings (switch wise). I am...

    Yep, already have the evalexperience subscribed to. I am actually running dual hosts right now and this is a replacement build.

    New build ideas

    Ok thanks. I am going to go with the same CPU and Motherboard that you picked out. The 1813+ can't do 10G which sucks so I am probably going to go the SSD route. Gearing up and licesning for VSan is gonna be too rich for my blood. Not really gonna have extra add in cards except for...

    ESXi Image Profile question question after upgraded from ESXI 5 to 6

    I figured out how to fix the problem. I was using image profile update (which didn't update the profile fully) so I ran the image install and it worked. Now my image profile is also up to date. It also fixed the sluggishness I was experiencing with my vm's. So I guess I was running version 6...
