Hacking Your VMware ESX Server 3i

Richard Garsthagen, Technical Marketing Manager EMEA for VMware, wrote a really great article on his Blog yesterday about "hacks" for the latest VMware ESX 3i product.

If you were one of the lucky people that attended VMworld 2007 last month, were you also lucky enough to grab a VMware ESX Server 3i USB drive?  If so, you definitely want to check out Richard's latest post.  He writes:

Well all my ESX servers at home are now migrated to ESX 3i and I have to say what a great concept. Just stick in a memory stick and you are up and running. After playing with it for some days now I wanted to share some tricks with you.

First ESX 3i is based on the new ESX platform and therefor now supporting SATA drives.  Yahooooo! I can run ESX now properly and native on my laptops. I have tested this with my IBM X60 (Centrino Dual Core) and Dell Latitude D410 (Pentium M single core) and on both it works fine. It sees my drives and I can format a VMFS partition on it and it supports the build-in NICs in the laptops.

Check out this post, here, and find out more about these hacks and command line entries that he exposes.  (Yes, command line... Richard shows all).  Thanks Richard, great stuff as usual!
