My ramblings on the stuff that holds it all together

Update on the Cheap ESX Home Server

 

All running well, we had a power cut the other day but the PC didn’t automatically power back on when power was restored; I wonder if there is a BIOS setting for that – PC’s always used to have something along those lines.

Bit of manual intervention to switch it on and it was back and running.. no ill effects and all the VM’s started up normally.

I’m hammering it a bit now and have some Windows Server 2008 RC1 templates setup as I need to try out the new Terminal Services functionality so I’m hoping to build a small 2008 TS farm under ESX – no customization wizard available yet for 2008 😦

Maybe will see how Windows built in NLB works under ESX Mmmm.

So, will see what performance is like when I have a lot more going on..
