First, I've pushed the limits of my iPad's usability. I really have...for a couple of years. But I just don't find myself using it for any kind of serious work. My MacBook Air has really taken over for both premise-based and cloud-based work. Even (more...)

Before testing several configurations on my new brand FreeNAS server hosted on VMWare ESXi 6.0, I took a snapshot. Then run tests. The FreeNAS is composed by two virtual disks : one for the software is 20Gb, one for the data is 900Gb.
After a while, bouncing the FreeNAS guest ended in error, VMWare is complaining about disk space not enough…
No way to start it up again.
Quite surprising. Except if we (more...)
My typical week is mostly spent in conversations with customers. Sometimes it's more of a formal work scenario with higher education institutions as part of my role with Sierra Cedar. More often than not, it's a bit more informal: advising customers across (more...)
First off, I put the all server in maintenance mode.
Then from the burned image .iso file downloaded from the VMWare site (VMware-VMvisor-Installer-6.0.0-2494585.x86_64.iso), boot from the CD on the server, choose upgrade and… everything goes smoothly ! Unfortunately, I still do not have a remote access card to make screenshot from BIOS boot. Anyway, this is really straightforward.
Second, I immediately applied the patch ESXi600-201504001.zip as followed, connected on the ESXi (more...)
Just installed FreeNAS 9.3 on VMWare ESXi 5.5.
Software and data must have separate disks. So first create the VM with a disk defined for the FreeNAS software, second add a disk as you wish for the data (both disks can be on different datastore).
I choose to put boths in one datastore separated from all other VMs hosted on my server (two different RAID array), and on separated network card.
Anyway, this (more...)
Lately, one of my drive of my RAID5 array was gone to death. Time for an infrastructure change.
I was glad to buy 4 new drives of 2TB to add new datastore to my vMWare ESXi 5.5 server. My plan is to move all the VMs from the old datastore where the disk is broken (RAID5, previously 4*500GB) to the new datastore (defined as RAID5, 4*2TB).
Then redefined the old LUN as RAID5 on (more...)
I had some spare time last week-end and still enough Gb free on my VMWare server, so I decided to have a look into that new Windows…
So far, all what I can say is that Microsoft was concerned about customers complaints regarding previous version 8. It’s kind of mix-up but looks much better. We can wonder why some applications are there (see XBox) that we cannot uninstall…
Probably a matter of time and maturity.
What is DRM?
4. New and Changed Features
Last day for submitting a proposal for Oracle Open World 2015!
I submitted a paper yesterday and hope to get the chance again to speak at the biggest Oracle conference.
Why should you submit?
Not only you'll be speaking about "your" topic and interest at the biggest Oracle event of the year, you'll also have the chance to attend very interesting sessions on all Oracle topics you can think of.
Instead of displaying the complete update statements , I can see messages like (more...)
