Virtualization Tip: Migrating to SAN’s “after the fact” with SCVMM using R2’s Migrate Storage
In today’s post, I thought I would share some insight into how to effectively migrate to Storage Area Network’s (SAN) after you’ve already got an SCVMM environment up and running. You found yourself with several Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V hosts and you were moving along with very little issues;...

Brocade Fiber Switch Console (Java) Shuts Down when Accessing via HTTP
If you run a lab or data center that includes Storage Area Networks (SAN) for shared storage then you’ve most likely run into switching technology . For example, in our engineering lab we have 20+ physical hosts connecting to a fiber-based Host Bus Adaptors (HBA) and this requires the use of switches...

SCVMM 2008 R2 & Cluster Shared Volumes (CSV) Migration from one CSV to Another
You often do your job of “planning” for your virtualization farm well in advance of when you can realistically foresee the amount of storage you will need. If you like me, you often take the amount of known needed space and you triple it – shh, don’t tell management. This technique works great until...

Hyper-V: Can’t delete Virtual Machine with ‘Operation cannot be performed while the object in current state’
There are situations, especially when running your virtual infrastructure on Storage Area Networks (SANs), that you are unable to effectively delete a virtual machine. There are many reasons why your VM is no longer needed such as you’ve moved to another farm or you simply don’t need the...

Disaster: Sector “0” Blanked for Cluster CSV, VMM Incomplete Configuration
Earlier this week, I had the privilege of living through a living hell whereby I was wondering what exactly would happen when our development engineering team had to figure out how to rebuild 53+ virtual machines hosted on a Failover Cluster with Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV) enabled. The first...

Soup to Nuts–Bare Metal Build-out of Cluster using EMC SAN, Brocade Fibre Switch, & Dell R610/R710’s
As is usual for many of my posts, I like to document things that become somewhat as a “reference” for me because I know I will forget it. The one side benefit to this is the fact that many of you might be looking for similar documentation. This is a win-win for us – so let’s do this together...

Real World Example of Troubleshooting R2 Live Migration using CSV’s
As I’ve mentioned several times, we run our engineering lab on much of the latest & greatest. There are many who would argue that this is a luxury (one afforded to those who work at a Software company such as Microsoft) and I wouldn’t have a solid argument against their argument. However...
