Docker Menu Base Tool

As I mentioned before, I wrote a small script (for Linux) to help me with containers in my test lab. This small script would help with “starting, stopping, removing, creating and listing” of containers. For “starting” or “stopping” the containers, it’s possible to use their name or pattern. For the creation of container, it’s possible to […]

Mass Hard Disk Creator (Ver 0.1)

PowerCLI on Server Core

It’s possible and so easy to install “VMware PowerCLI” on the full edition of “Microsoft Windows (Client/Server)” (with GUI) but what about “Windows Server Core Edition”? I’ve tried to install it on “Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Core” and here I’m listing some little points needed to take care of. First of all, “VMware PowerCLI” needs “.NET […]

Windows Server 2012 as Home Lab Storage Server

After long absence I’m starting my work on this blog and other projects.

I’ve edited “DTS (v0.3)” so it can generate “.csv” and accept input from “.csv” file as well. Feel free to send your comment and idea and if you find any bug/problem in this script please let me know, I hope this version can do better work and be useful. [wpdm_file id=8]

Using VMware PowerCLI (#004) – Deploy Template (v0.2)

Well, This is a second edition,enhanced or debugged version of my previous “Deploy Template” script. I tried to make it a little more user-friendly and added capability of selecting the location (Resource Pool/vApp) which user/admin can place their newly created VM(s) as well as capability of powering on VM(s) after their creation. Also this script […]

Using VMware PowerCLI (#003) – Deploy Template

This script will help users/admins for deploying multiple VMs from one of available templates and unlike other scripts I saw so far which are file (answer file) based, this script is interactive and need and interaction of admin. In next version I’d try to add some more options like “adding to resource pool or vApp”, […]

There are times which some VMs are freezing and in these situations there is no option for restart or shutdown. Today I got same experience and hopefully this time it was in my home lab, if it were in production … 🙄 Anyway, getting to the main point, in these situation admins may wants to […]
