VMware is virtual machine software that provides a virtualized set of hardware (a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk adapters) to the guest operating system. VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the point of suspension. VMware's enterprise software hypervisors for servers, VMware ESX and VMware ESXi are bare-metal embedded Hypervisors that run directly on server hardware without requiring an additional underlying operating system.

We found a snapshot on our Exchange Server this morning!

WARNING & REMINDER to ALL VMware Admins, Make Sure you regularly check your Virtual Machines for Evil Snapshots, after Backup Processes, which will cause performance issues, and make cause virtual machine outage if the datastore gets full, and VM will stop!

Don't know how to check for snapshots, which may be hidden check out my EE Article

Creative video. People have preferences even though they know that a service or product can have flaws.

Installing VMware vSphere (ESXi) for the first time, and are using a branded server, e.g. IBM, Lenovo, DELL, Fujitsu etc update the firmware FIRST, and then head off and download the OEM version of ESXi, and install it! Do not use the VMware version!
