Configuring iSCSI using Openfiler 2.99

In this video I will show you how to configure Openfiler to use iSCSI to present storage to your virtualisation platform (in this instance a latter video shows you how to configure ESXi to do just that).

This video includes creating your raid array, configuring volume groups and volumes as well as network access.

Configuring ESXi to use Openfiler 2.99 iSCSI Storage

This short video shows you how to configure your ESXi server to use iSCSI storage, in this instance it’s going to be using the Openfiler iSCSI volume created in the previous video but these same steps are used to configure any iSCSI storage.

ThinApp – How to virtualise the vSphere Client (4.1u1)

Here is a quick tutorial showing how to ThinApp the vSphere client, so as to reduce the package size as much as possible the work was carried out on a fully patched Windows XP SP3 machine with the J# redist installed as well.

The entire process from start to finish took about 30 minutes so I have edited the video to cut out long and boring installation routines.

A couple of things to note is that I never managed to get my client down to the same size that VMware have but to my defence this is my first attempt at using ThinApp but I did get it down to a respectable 133mb and also that this is my first attempt at video creation, also this video doesn’t contain any sound but future releases will do.

One thing missing from the video is that testing of the client was carried out on a Windows 7 virtual machine, this machine had no additional software installed on it (unlike the XP machine that had the J# redist).

If there are any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
