Why in god's name would your DB server be on the same subnet as your wireless network? Never mind having some sort of arp-protection in place (ie if the local DHCP server didn't assign it's IP don't listen to it).

Ask Slashdot: What Type of Asset Would You Not Virtualize?

cwj123 Re:Busy databases (464 comments)

There's not a vCPU limit in HA as of at least ESXi 4.1 (or if there is it's really high). Maybe your're thinking of FT? That has some strange limitations.

Ask Slashdot: What Type of Asset Would You Not Virtualize?

cwj123 Re:Busy databases (464 comments)

Couple of corrections. HA (high availability) works without vCenter, if a host running vCenter dies HA will restart it on another host like any other VM. A vDS will continue to function you just can't connect VMs to the distributed switch. Lastly vCenter Heartbeat has been around for at least a year and can run in a few configurations. You can run it with two VMs (active/passive), maybe on different hosts/data stores or even buildings. You can also run it with the active vCenter on a physical machine that'll failover to a VM if need be.

In Illinois we've got a 3D barcode as well as a 2D barcode. No magstripe at all. Looks the the author didn't research his IDs.
