This is the first year that VMworld EMEA is two-weeks after VMworld US and I have to say it sure does keep the pressure on! Below is my schedule for VMworld EMEA.
VMworld US 2017 is underway and I realized I have not published my agenda. Below are the events I am currently planning to attend — I hope to see you there! If you are interested in syncing up on any topic (e.g. Log Insight, IDM, etc) do not hesitate to reach out.
I covered the datastore ID to name aliasing feature in Log Insight 4.0, but under the covers is really a more generic aliasing feature that has not been exposed yet. I walked though a bit of how the aliasing feature works, but I wanted to dig a little deeper into the aliasRules option. Read on to learn more!
The Log Insight Importer has always supported recursive directory support, however the Log Insight Agent has not. I am happy to announce that in Log Insight 4.5, the agent now supports this functionality as well. Read on to learn more!
As you probably know, the Log Insight virtual appliance relies on OVF properties to handle some amount of configuration. OVF properties are powerful in that they can be set at deploy time, changed at a later time, and can be used instead of relying on a CLI or needing to write a UI on top of a CLI. With that said, OVF properties have two significant limitations:
- They require vSphere — not an issue for Log Insight as it is only available as a virtual appliance
- They can go missing
The issue of missing OVF properties is what I would like to cover in this post. Read on to learn more!
