Not everyone may be able to go to a VMware class. In some cases, you may find yourself thrown into a situation where knowing anything about virtualization may give you that extra nudge to moving into another role or making yourself more valuable to your employer and hopefully getting raise as a result of that. I have worked with virtualization in one form or another for several years. Even with going to a week long class as part of the requirement to get my VCP5 certification, I still found myself not as prepared as I had thought I would be after class.

What you read here is the electronic version of my notebook that I have kept since working with VMware on a daily basis. Some of what you see are things I came across in working to resolve a problem. Others resulted from a problem that I found that I was hoping to find a solution for before the problem became serious or I was at a point of no return.
