Remember the immensely popular Network port diagram for vSphere 5.x we released back in July? Many of you got your hands on a physical copy at VMworld that we were handing out at the Social Support booth in the Hang Space.
Today we make good on a promise to release one for Horizon View 5.2 Click the image to be taken to the KB article which contains the pdf file.

As we spoke about in this announcement, here are our currently trending KB articles related to ESXi and vCenter Server. These are the issues the majority of users are encountering. See anything familiar?
To start off with the new week we have a new video which will demonstrate our View Composer API for Array Integration in VMware View 5.1 which is currently in a "Tech Preview" state. "Tech Preview" means that the feature is experimental and should only be used in a test and development environment. For more details read about VMware Experimental Feature Support.
Essentially what the feature allows you to do is to offload the creation of the linked clones which back your View desktops to the storage array, and let the storage array handle this task. The main advantage of VCAI is an improvement in performance and a reduction in the time taken to provision desktops based on linked clone pools. This task can now be offloaded to the array, which can then provision these linked clones natively rather than have the ESXi host do it.
We have a new video for you today. it is a short video, but one which will be useful for all users who ever have to troubleshoot their VMware View environments.
This video demonstrates how to collect the diagnostic information for the various components within a VMware View environment. This can be especially useful when working with VMware's Technical Support staff in relation to a Support Request you may have opened, as by providing them with the necessary log support data at the beginning of the investigation process will speed up the entire process and help you get back to a more stable environment as soon as possible.
