VMware change control examples
Posted on 2012-09-07
Can you give some examples of changes to your Vcenter, or ESXi hosts, or virtualisation related issues to guests that go through change control, and those that typically wouldn’t require going through change control as they are low/lower risk?
I have been tasked with doing some change control compliance checks but a list of perhaps 5-10 issues that do need to go through change control and 5-10 that don’t for the above 3 categories, that would be a very good starting point. Maybe VMware has some suggestions for standard changes that don’t need to go through full change control, and others that do, but I couldn’t find such a list.
I guess I am after higher risk changes vs lower risk changes as well. And frequency of how often both appear would also be interesting.
