VMware Server 2 on CentOS 5.4

Well, I’m sure that there are many people that are running VMware Server 2 on CentOS 5. After all, it’s one of the major Host OSes that VMware recognizes. Popularity notwithstanding, there is a major bug that can bring your VM screamer to a hault. CentOS 5.4 has a new glibc package that essentially breaks...

Guest VM Settings Migrator 1.0

If you have used VMware for any length of time, you have probably done a P2V(Physical to Virtual) conversion on a Windows server, to migrate that system into a virtualized environment. If you’ve got specific NIC settings – such as Static IP, DNS, etc. – those have to be recreated on the new virtual NIC....

VMware Server 2 on Linux Host with Parallel Port Passthrough

Not being too familiar with linux printing, I blindly assumed that as long as the parallel port worked in the Linux host OS, that parallel port passthrough would work just fine. So, I proceeded to add a virtual parallel port to my Windows VM running on VMware Server 2.0.1 under CentOS 5.3. I soon realized...

UPDATE: Read full post for the edit containing a much better alternative! I am loving the new VMware Workstation 6.5 with Unity mode(among other features) I hope to be rid of the need for a dedicated boot entry for Windows.

VMware Training in Raleigh

Just flew in to Raleigh, NC today for the VMware Fast Track Training this week. I’m pretty excited to be able to participate in some ‘official’ education from VMware, and this will hopefully be a good week with plenty of valuable information to take home. My biggest fear is…...

At the laundromat…

Well, I’m at the laundromat tonight, and am now realizing how crappy my phone is for realistic web use. It’s actually really hard to do this because my text box to write in only renders about one third of an inch on my browser, so basically any word more than three characters long is broken...

First look at Drupal CMS

Well, I’m currently working on getting a drupal site up and running for a quartet I sing in called, “The Missourians”. There’s not too much to installing the drupal core. And, I was rather impressed with the few things required to get drupal working on the server. (Good job, Drupal community developers!)...

Coldfusion Momentum

I’m still working on my dad’s website. I’m trying to get a simple but nice database on the web. I had created an Access Database(MDB) for his business a couple years ago, but now he’s wanting to be able to access the site from anywhere, and see the information – essentially a web app....
