How to build a Windows 2016 VMware Template – Notes from MWhite This is a template outline I have used several times and am very happy with it. It should work great for you and if not then let me know. I did this with vSphere 6.0 U2a and Windows 2016. I also used the vSphere Web Client as you will see in the screenshots. I will keep this article current by using it as necessary and improving it when I learn something new so keep an eye on it.

Virtualization for embedded systems Not only are the markets and opportunities that virtualization creates exploding, but the variations of virtualization are expanding, as well. Although virtualization began in mainframes, it found a key place in the server. Server utilization was found to be so small for a large number of workloads that virtualization permitted multiple server instances to be hosted on a single server for less cost, management, and real estate. Virtualization then entered the consumer space in the form of type-2 (or hosted) hypervisors, which permitted the concurrent operation of multiple operating systems on a single desktop. Configure NFSv3 and NFSv4 on CentOS 7 In this guide, I’ll take you through the installation of NFSv3 and NFSv4 Server on CentOS 7.

: Managing source code with Mercurial Source code management on UNIX and Linux systems Identifying and tracking the changes made by multiple developers and merging them into a single, up-to-date codebase makes collaborative, multi-developer projects possible. VCS software, also referred to as revision control systems (RCS) or source code management (SCM) systems, enable multiple users to submit changes to the same files or project without one developer's changes accidentally overwriting another's changes. Linux® and UNIX® systems are knee-deep in VCS software, ranging from dinosaurs such as the RCS and the Concurrent Versions System (CVS) to more modern systems such as Arch, Bazaar, Git, Subversion, and Mercurial.
nixCraft - Linux / Unix tutorials for new and seasoned sysadmin We can easily enable rc.local shell script support on systemd while booting the Linux system. Traditionally, the shell script /etc/rc.local used by developers and Linux sysadmin to call other scripts or commands after all services are loaded. Typically /etc/rc.local get called at the end when Linux init switched to a multiuser runlevel. However, by default.
