- 1871 Snapshots Deepdive (with Michael Wilmsen)
Creating virtual machine snapshots is one of the most common tasks for an administrator Making a snapshot of a virtual machine is one of the most common tasks an administrator can do with a virtual machine. Snapshots make our life must easier by providing a robust roll-back scenario when performing a upgrade or when we change the configuration of a virtual machine. Snapshots are quest independent and easy to use. Snapshots can also be a real nightmare when used wrong. Datastores can fill up resulting in a virtual machine (suspension) crash., you’re unable to delete snapshots and backup programs leaving unmanageable snapshots behind. These are all common issues that can occur when using snapshots. What about the size of a snapshot file, how large can a snapshot file grow? This session will give you a deepdive in how snapshot actually work in the different version of vSphere and how you can solve common problems when working with snapshots.

The purpose of this document is to support a self-guided, hands-on review of VMware View 5. The content is intended to show how easily you can set up a VMware View 5 environment so you can evaluate both new and important capabilities. These capabilities include creating and managing virtualized desktops, and validating the suggested use cases.
The guide is divided into the following main sections:
1. Key New Features of VMware View 5
2. Description of VMware View Components
3. Setting Up a View Evaluation Environment
4. Evaluation Tasks
An appendix includes the evaluation tasks from the View 4.6 Evaluator’s Guide, so that you can test those features if you have not yet done so. This document assumes you have basic knowledge of VMware vSphere™ or VMware ESX™ or ESXi™, and are comfortable configuring networking and storage in a virtual environment.
