As a result of the SDK Programming Lab at TSX in Nice, I (Jeremy van Doorn) received a request from someone if it was possible to list all Virtual Machines in a Cluster. With the SDK, this can of course be done, but it might not be obvious to everyone just how …
I had some free time tonight and wrote a very small script that prints the VM’s in the Cluster that you specify. There is one small issue however -> I only have one ESX host in my environment, so I cannot test if the script actually works with multiple hosts, clusters, etc. If you can, please test the script and let me know what you think …
You can download the script here. (remember: you need the VI Perl Toolkit be able to run this script)
We have also created a new project page, where we will store more sample scripts that utilize the VI3 Perl Toolkit.
Well after some busy weeks, VMware TSX EMEA 2007 is behind us. I am probably the worst person to report on how TSX went, as I mainly was busy with the organization. I did hear many nice good comments (except about the food) about the event and I did like the atmosphere during the event. I think the crowd of TSX is amazing, truly an unique bunch of technies who are seriously interested in virtualization.
I did have time to shoot an interview with Mike and Scott (writers of the advanced ESX book) being interviewed by Alessandro (virtualization.info). The interview gives a good inside about how challenging it is to write a technical book, i hope you enjoy the interview.
There are a lot more reports about VMware, here a short overview:
8 session summaries on rtfm-ed.co.uk
Part 1 and part 2 of a summary written by alessandro
Nice Pictures @ TSX
Lots of audio interviews with people and speakers at TSX by Eric Sloof
See you next year at TSX
