When converting amounts between different currencies, you need exchange rates. This article demonstrates how to obtain these from no less than nine different sources, either for free or - for intense or demanding use - for a fee.

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#21: End of Support Life for vSphere 5.5, which includes vSphere Hypervisor ESXi 5.5 and vCenter Server 5.5.

The official VMware KB is here...

https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/51491

I've seen many posts recently, Experts jumping in and posting, ESXi 5.5 is not supported after September 2018, which is a true statement, but it does not really help the Member posting a question, as to what the issue is today they are experiencing.

also... that is not really a hard and fast rule, Support for ESXi 5.5 CAN be extended if you purchase support.

"In the event you are unable to upgrade before the End of General Support (EOGS) and are active on Support and Subscription, you have the option to purchase extended support in one year increments for up to two years beyond the EOGS date. Visit VMware Extended Support for more information."  

"Technical Guidance for vSphere 5.5 is available until September 19, 2020 primarily through the self-help portal"

e.g. all the firmware, security and critical update patches, software will still be available for download, all VMware Kbs, and VMware Communities information will still be available.

What does this mean to you and your organization ?

1. Unless you are covered by a valid support and subscription, and purchased extended support, you will not be able to make a telephone support, or email support, or online support request for vSphere 5.5.

2. If you Support and Subscription has expired - not …

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#3 - Experiments in TIME. Just call me a TIME LORD!

Real life example, a client added 20 new hosts to a large vSphere Cluster, DRS was enabled, and after a few minutes, VMs started to populate the new hosts. (via VMotion/DRS)

A very large outsourcer, then suddenly found issues with Active Directory Replication across the business and also Microsoft Exchange email servers services started to fail.

Because of TIME, TIME had skewed between Active Directory servers and Microsoft Exchange servers by 1.5 hours! and all stopped replicating, and services failed! Active Directory and Microsoft Exchange failed. Logons and email stopped working for many thousands of employees!

The reason, a few of the new ESXi hosts, were syncing time from a rouge time server, which was giving the WRONG time, the time in fact was 1.5 hours ahead.

You may be thinking, ah, they are using VMware Tools to sync to host! - No!

This function has been removed from VMware Tools for many years!

BUT here is a golden nugget, did you know that a vMotion of a VM will sync time with the host unless disabled!

Time is resynchronized when you migrate the virtual machine using vMotion, take a snapshot, restore to a snapshot, shrink the virtual disk, or restart the VMware Tools service in the virtual machine (including rebooting the virtual machine).

Exchange Admins,
Exchange Administrator of a O365 tenant that is using either DirSync or AADSync are no longer supported and may not work correctly. These tools are no longer supported as of April 2017, and after December 31, 2017 O365 team are not able to guarantee your connections from Windows Azure Active Directory Synchronization (DirSync) or Azure AD Sync work properly.  This may affect your ability to synchronize your local directory infrastructure with Office 365, and will result in users being unable to log in to their Office 365 services.

Recommended action
Azure Active Directory (AAD) Connect is the best way to connect your on-premises directory with Azure AD and Office 365.  Upgrade your sync functionality to the latest version of Azure AD Connect, which is the currently supported tool for syncing data to O365 cloud features.

Hope it helps.

Thanks

G Suite - My short experience with subscribing to it!

I recently decided to subscribe to G-Suite and my experience lasted a total of about ~48 Hours before I decided to cancel it, despite finding a way to only have to pay $1 AUD a month for the first 12 months.

Why did I cancel? Because of the customer service and support I experienced.

Customer service is very important to me and I found the support system to be severely lacking in many ways. I recall a post by Experts Exchange Expert Scott Fell where he said "gSuite help is still terrible." and I can only mirror the sentiments and comments Scott made, along with a few disappointments of my own.

I intend to write an article on this topic soon, including a "How To" get a large discount for the first year of a G Suite subscription for those that decide to get one, and will be approaching Scott to see if he would be willing to co-author this article so we can both share our experiences for the benefit of the Experts Exchange community.

Look out for this article in the not too distant future.

Regards, Andrew

Hi John,

Thanks for your comment and feedback. I actually found the "product" itself to be quite good, and other subscribers to the suite I've since spoken to (and before trying it for myself) swear by the benefits it gives them. My sole problem is with the Support representatives. I'm in the process of writing an article on this topic and will update this post once it's published in the next week or so.

Update: I just got a G-Suite bill from Google even though I canceled my "Trial" account two days after I started it. My credit card billing history shows a new charge pending.

Further to G-Suite's woeful support options, I have tried in vain for the last 30 minutes to get to Email, Phone, or Chat support without luck, because you have to have an active G-Suite account to be able to access any support options at all!

Logging in several times just gives me the message that the account I'm logging in with (the account I created G-Suite with) is no longer a G-Suite account. Well DERRR! That's because it's canceled, so why Invoice me?!

I can access my previous accounts Admin options, but can't do squat there. No option to delete my credit card details, NO option to contact support.

I eventually managed to get to Groups to open a support request. The email with the invoice came from a no-reply address and included instructions to contact support - yet none of them worked because my account is deactivated.

I said it before and I say it again - G-Suite may be a great product, but their support is WOEFUL and that's being as kind as I can be in a G rated forum!

In exchange 2007, wondering if anyone knows how to limit the view of specific public fodders to certain people or security groups.

I know how to limit access (ie author, contributor, editor, etc) but a client has asked that only certain people be able to see certain public folders to reduce the overall amount of viewable public folders (to reduce "clutter" if you will) for everyone viewing the public folder structure. ....

Hello, We got an Exchange 2013 as a mailserver. Actually we are having problems receiveing mails but just in a case.
We have deleted a mailboxuser, so I realized that if the deleted user is in CC or TO fields and other user are included in this fields too, the mail is rejected by our Exchange and nobody receives the mail. Users that exists not receiving the mail neither.  The NDR is 550 5.1.1 User unknown.
If this deleted user is not included on the email the mails is received well.
It happens with all deleted user or not existant users.

Any ideas?

Thanks Miguel

I have heard reports of shared slides not moving. Sometimes the video wont be recording when more than 25 people are participating. For bigger or larger conference rooms the speaker’s voice is often obscured by other noise disturbances in the room. The simple reason is the speaker’s mic volume is turned down automatically in response to the louder noise.
Having said that, it has its benefits too.

how to send mail from local mailboxes to local mailboxes on different exchange server

Assuming that both exchange server are within the same organization:
  Just sent a regular email as you normallly would for a external mailbox.

----------------------------------
If you have 2 different exchange server with a mailbox on each other...
The 1st exchange server will route the email using MX record to the second exchange server.
(It's what happen when you submit an email from whichever exchange to a remote domain and server).

Hi Friends,

Just a short note to explain why those of you who have been following me may be curious as to why I suddenly disappeared from EE all of a sudden and apparently started ignoring all of your messages for the last couple of months.

Without going into too much detail, I've basically been in and out of hospital with a rather serious condition. My last stint in hospital was 4 1/2 weeks and I'm finally now home again on a "Hospital in the Home" program where district nurses regularly visit my home and I go back into the hospital once a week for doctors reviews.

The situation I'm in isn't about to change real soon, but I'm confident I'll beat it eventually  :-)

So that's my story gang.. My apologies for the lack of replies and if I do seem to disappear, please know it has nothing to do with Experts Exchange forums, which I continue to thoroughly enjoy.

Best..

Andrew
