Its springtime again so its triggered me into active contributing again. Last update to the B2V site was May 2009, so its definitely overdue! At the time, there were thousands of hits for the ESX command line guides. With the demise of the service console, the need for Linux skills for a VMware admin diminished somewhat. But I’ll be keeping true to command line and including where I can. So much has changed since 2009, we now have a mature end user compute solution in Horizon View and hybrid cloud services easily achievable with vCloud Connector. The command line guides came about as a way to keep my lessons-learned in one place, so the blog content here will be the same. As I find nuggets in consulting projects and in the test lab, I’ll share here.
