How do i continue editing my course? Thanks.

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...

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 …

I stopped logging in about a year ago after they raised the minimum to 10K points per month...

Was curious to come back & answer a question...
I was pleasantly surprised when it said I qualified again with only 3K!

When did they go back & why?

I wonder if ANYONE has been on Experts Exchange as long as I have.  
My first question was on April 4, 1997. Over 20 yeas ago.  Can you believe it!

Here's a link to that first question:  "Unwanted mouse grouping"

I'm amazed that question is still in the EE System!   I've had 1,293 questions during that time!

Hello Experts Exchange experts :)

I'd like to get an on-site notification whenever a member I choose to follow posts a question, posts a comment to any question or makes a post. I know I can go to a members profile and check their history, but this is both a cumbersome and tiresome way of doing it. Is there a way to do this that I'm unaware of?

I asked this question in one of the support groups once I think and was told I could set up a saved search that I could use, but I'd have to create a saved search for every member I want to follow and run each search one by one which would take too much time.

For the purpose of this question, let's use Joe Winograd as an example - an expert I find very useful who often posts Video's, answers to questions I haven't participated in or makes a post in a Group discussion. Articles are not an issue because I get notified of all article submissions to EE.

What I need

1. How do I configure my EE settings so that I get an on-site notification whenever there is *any* activity by Joe or anyone else I follow?


2. Alternatively, how can I configure a saved search that includes *all* members I want to follow and receive on-site notifications for whenever there is *any* activity by them?

Please include detailed and step by step instructions on any solution to give me this ability.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Regards, Andrew
When I'm on the main Home Page of Experts Exchange (see below for an example), I get a list of Questions from ALL topics.

EE Home Page
What I want to achieve is to have only questions that match my selected Topics - Not ALL topics.

Can someone direct me as to how to get the appropriate area to achieve this "and" how to set it up so that only questions from my selected Topic will show up on the EE Home page please?

Many thanks...

so what it is make you different from an existing expert exchange system
Andy's VMware vSphere tip#2- When creating a virtual disk for VMware vSphere (or Hyper-V), always start small, and expand later. It's much easier to expand a virtual disk, than reduce a virtual disk. Do not be tempted to create 1 TB virtual disk, you will find it difficult to reduce the size. If you have made this mistake you can refer to my EE Articles.
I'm going to start something new at EE, Tips from the VMware vSphere Datacentre... real world tips, that get you through that tricky moment, when all things are turning to that brown stuff.... This happened to me today, adding 5 new vSphere ESXi hosts to a Cluster of 150.

Andy's VMware vSphere tip#1 - HA Operation Timeout - A Host or Hosts refuse to bring HA (High Avaibility online), after upgrading vCenter Server, or adding new hosts to vCenter Server datacentre, no matter what you try, you obtain an Operation Time Out, you look at the FDM.log as advised here -

Solution. - Just Edit Cluster Settings - and Disable and Re-enable vSphere HA.

Simples! All that work browsing logs and Reconfigure HA for the Host not required. This does not affect any VMs, and HA will just be unavailable for 30 seconds why you turn on and off.

If you need to discuss this, please post a question to the VMware topic area.

Great idea Andy!
This is a rehash of this question which lost it's way here on EE.
(I've added some sample data to the spreadsheet)
I figured out how to get my EE points total for the past 12 months
(It updates automatically every month).

Based on the 50,000 points in the last 12 months EE rewards rule, I can manually work out
that I have enough points to retain free premium membership until
the end of December 2018 (If I get no more points)?

How can the end of rewards month be automatically calculated Excel?

Hi Randal,

I've been having a browse through Cloud Class and it looks quite interesting and even a little enticing. However, one thing that I think is sorely lacking (I'm not yet a member of Cloud Class) is that there doesn't appear to be any previews of the course(s) on offer? Or indeed, prices?

The preview issue existed before Cloud Class too, with the one-minute preview blurb that was provided giving little to no useful information on available courses at Experts Exchange because it was so short.

Often, a course can look great, only to find that when you start it, you and the instructor just don't 'gell' or the course isn't what it appeared to be.

I think it would be highly beneficial for the first couple of video's of all courses to be available as a preview to help members decide if they want to purchase them or not. Either that or the ability to get a full refund if a purchased course isn't what it (or as good as) looked like it would be.

The preview issue is what's preventing me from wanting to Enroll in Cloud Class at the moment, and from past discussions in Community Groups, I know others have similar concerns.


Regards, Andrew
