VMware ESX misc notes
 
Note. you may enable VT-x/AMD-V inside a VM. But you have to use the web client for that, in CPU properties of the VM.
Ref. https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-8970
 
Note. vSphere Web Client, force en_US,
https://vcenter/vsphere-client/?locale=en_US
 
Increase the size of a VMware datastore
First, increase the size of the LUN, then go do datastore's properties and use the "Increase" button.

Tips
- To find out how much space there's left on the VMFS,
vdf -h
- As for SCSI virtual disk type,
For RHEL4+ use LSI Logic
For RHEL3 donno, check defaults while creating one.
For older Redhats use BusLogic
 
 
New features
Those new features may be addressed,
- Converter Plugin for the VC
- The update manager
- VMotion for Storages - migrate a virtual disk from a LUN to another
 
 
Older ESX and Virtualcenter
Note: VirtualCenter Agents which connect ESX Server 2.x hosts to VirtualCenter 1.x are no longer available for sale separately. However, the following license key can be used for up to 16-CPU configurations: 38EPE-GWQ46-YE3G1-5LPUH. This generic license key is limited to ESX Server 2.x and VirtualCenter 1.x instances and can be used for multiple ESX Server hosts. Customers should not register this license key to their store account.
