vmware esxi, part2

With lots of new services that run on my vmserver it was time for an upgrade, but this time i didnt want to do a forklift upgrade as the server still was potent enough and i wanted to test cluster features. I ordered the same build as the existing one to keep maximum compatibility and because it still was a very good combination of hardware that hasn’t let me down once.

I ended up with automatic loadbalancing using vmware DRS, a shared NFS storage on my vmfileserver and approx. 20VMs.

Both vmserver got a few extra NICS for dedicated storageserver access, a VLAN network and a spare at that time.
