I've been using a combination of Mint 17 as a host with VirtualBox running my development VM's including my every day Windows 10 workstation that I need for my daily duties at work. The downside I face is my Windows Vm degrades in performance over a matter or 24 to 48 hours, to the point...
So i'm now roughly half a week into my second attempts at troubleshooting GPU passthrough. I've researched information on VMware's site, as well as this great thread: Troubleshooting GPU passthrough ESXi 6.5
Unfortunately, i just cannot seem to figure out where i'm going wrong and was...

Just noticed this on Mellanox site today - iSer driver for VMWare 6.5.
There is a new tab called 'iSer Download'.
Seem there's support for ConnectX-3 Eth drivers as well.
Just tried the latest VMware ESXi 6.5u1 ISO and the VMware-ESXi-6.5U1-RollupISO.iso with the Intel Atom C3000 series "Denverton" using onboard 10GbE:
Since U1 was released about three weeks ago, it looks like there is going to be some time where one needs to slipstream new Intel drivers into...

I know here's a number of people related to vmware. I'm about to pull a trigger on VMUG advantage, just because of evalexperience. There's a VMUG meet in Wisconsin, May 25 and I wanna attend it, but I wanna try NSX before that. Job interview coming :)
Sooo... Does anyone know where I...
I currently have an HP ML310e G8 and whilst its a good server it is bottlenecked by the fact it only supports 32GB DDR3 UDIMM RAM and I use it as a ESXi host. The processor is a E3-1220 V2 (Quad Core no HT) and I have 2 of these servers running max ram and loaded with 4 x 3TB drives in...
Had this fun one today where I was provisioning a Ubuntu VM on ESXi as a Rancher node. While provisioning I got an error "mac value is blank!"
I still have not fixed this but a workaround seems to be finding the MAC address in a VM and using that. Foreman will recognize the MAC. VMware will PXE...
When creating a new NFS datastore I noticed that VMware only supports v3 and v4.1. Unfortunately Synology only officially support NFS v4 and not 4.1.
I was poking around my syno and the kernal they are using does in fact support 4.1. By making a simple edit I am able to enable this...
I've added an HP DL380 G7 to my homelab and installed the latest HP ESXi 6.0 update to the server. Also added it to my vCenter 6.5 appliance.

To put this question bluntly: I am trying to run an add-to-cart service for a product that is in high demand and low supply.
I do not want to outsource proxies and cloud storage/servers to other companies, I rather do it myself.
I'm not super experienced with servers but I've taken a CISCO...

I'm currently evaluating the possibility to create a NAS/SAN (iSCSI/NFS) to share between 3 lab servers (all HP ML310e Gen8 v2) with an upcoming 10 Gbps network (ConnectX-2 NIC connected to a shared DLINK DGS-1510-28X). As I would like to have some services "always-on", my goal would be to keep...
