• Most enterprises tend to use multiple vCenter Servers to manage their virtualized infrastructure. My environment has around 100+ vCenter Servers to manage the virtual infrastructure. It is a cumbersome task to manage and maintain the configuration of multiple vCenter Servers in the environment. Prior to vSphere 7.0, there was no centralized configuration tool to centrally manage and apply the same configuration across the multiple vCenter Servers in the environment to maintain consistency. vSphere 7.0 offers a new feature called “vCenter Server profiles” to maintain configurations across called multiple vCenter Servers in the virtualized environment.

  • There are many exciting features being released with vSphere 7, such as built-in support for Kubernetes, vSphere Lifecycle Manager to manage the infrastructure lifecycle, and many other improvements in VMware vMotion, DRS, and the vSphere content library. In this article, we will look at the new features available with content libraries in vSphere 7.

  • Ansible is an open-source automation tool that can automate IT tasks such as configuration management, application deployment, interservice orchestration, and provisioning. Ansible will help you automate your VMware infrastructure and accelerate the process from development to production. When it comes to simplicity, Ansible is rapidly rising to the top in the world of automation tools.

  • The VMware OVF Tool is a free command-line utility that helps users to import and export OVF packages to and from a wide variety of VMware products. We can make use the OVF Tool to copy VMs directly between standalone ESXi hosts without the need for shared storage and the vCenter server.

  • Many reasons may cause vMotion to fail during the different phases. In this article, I will cover the top reasons vMotion could fail.

  • A VMware content library provides a centralized location to store virtual machine templates and ISO images. You can share VM templates and ISO images across multiple vCenter Servers in different datacenters to maintain consistency across VM deployments. In this post, I will show how to create a VMware content library.

  • DRS affinity and anti-affinity rules help Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) perform better placements of virtual machines by understanding the application dependencies and availability. In this post, I will show you how to create affinity and anti-affinity rules in the vSphere Web Client, and I will give some real-world examples.

  • If you put an ESXi host in maintenance mode, you have to consider various consequence. In this article, I will discuss the three different vSAN data evacuation modes that are available during ESXi host maintenance in a vSAN cluster.
