Ever wondered how to locate your VMware Workstation serial number after the software has been installed on your machine?
We present you with a new video today, geared towards users of our VMware Workstation product.
The serial number is listed in the order confirmation email you receive for your Workstation purchase. Workstation License Keys that have been registered will be listed in your My VMware account. See Knowledge Base article: Viewing license keys in My VMware (2006831) for additional details.
We have a new video for you today which discusses and demonstrates how to access your VMware Downloads using My VMware. This tutorial is short, sweet and straight to the point, providing a basic overview and is specifically geared towards towards users who aren’t familiar with My VMware.
We have a new video today which is specifically geared towards users of our VMware Workstation product.
This video discusses and demonstrates upgrading from VMware Workstation version 8 to VMware Workstation version 9. The video tutorial depicts the process from a Windows-based environment’s perspective, however the instructions also apply to a Linux based installation.
You will need a valid My VMware account in order to download the Workstation installer binary from the vmware.com website.
We have a new video for your viewing pleasure today and this video will be of specific interest to any of our vSphere vCenter Server Appliance users.
This video discusses and demonstrates upgrading the VMware vCenter Server Appliance from version 5.0.x to 5.1. This tutorial is based on VMware Knowledge Base article Upgrading vCenter Server Appliance from 5.0.x to 5.1 (2033990). All of the steps performed within this video demonstration are also documented in that KB.
The upgrade process is relatively straight forward and easy to follow.
Note: For best viewing results ensure that the 720p HD quality setting is selected and view in full screen mode.
Earlier this month, we made some small changes to the Knowledge Base search interface, in an effort to make your searching experience better.
The Products drop down menu, accessible before you search, now shows only product names and not the versions. The list is much shorter now! Products are still in the same order as before / grouped by category. Even though the category names went away too, nothing has moved — Datacenter products are still in the top half of the list, Desktop products (including the Horizon products) are in the 3rd quarter, and Developer products are at the bottom.
After you search, and the results are shown, search facets appear on the side. With these, you can filter your results by product/version, by the article category, and by the article language. Watch the video below to see this in action.
We recently added a new category as well in order to help you refine your results. Stay tuned for more news about that!
Here is a video demonstrating these new changes and how you can use them to increase your searching experience and effectiveness.
For those of you administering multiple vSphere environments, getting a SSO multisite deployment up and running in a correct configuration is very important. Multisite deployments are where a local replica is maintained at remote sites of the primary vCenter Single Sign-On instance. The process of setting this up is not complicated, but it is possible to take a wrong turn and end up wasting a whole lot of time correcting it. That is why we have created a best-practice Knowledgebase article titled: Multisite Single Sign-On deployment best practices. (2042849). We highly recommend you look at the examples in that article.
We have a new video uploaded to our VMware KBTV YouTube channel today.
In this video tutorial you will see the process for downloading and deploying the vCenter Server appliance. The process is rather straight forward and easy to follow. In just a few steps you will be able to download the appliance and run it within your own VMware virtualized environments.
For the purpose of this demonstration we used an ESX 4.1 based host in order to deploy the appliance, which is a really old version at this stage, but the process is relatively the same across all of the more recent ESXi versions.
