VMware Horizon View 7.x. configuration backup & recovery

Backing up a VMware Horizon View environment configuration is one of the most important parts of running a virtual desktop infrastructure. Most administrators already know how to back up virtual desktops, but, unfortunately, very few pay enough attention to backing up Horizon View configurations. That’s not smart! If you have any problems with a large View Manager configuration, it can take several hours or even days to set up pools and policies, configure entitlements, and perform other tasks. Sounds tough, I guess. That’s why you need to have a safe harbor for Horizon View configurations too.

Migrating K2 database to a different SQL Server instance – how to copy SQL Server instance Master Key

Initially my plan for this blog post was to write up a short explanation of how to copy SQL Server instance master key between SQL Server instances, but too many people around me keep saying “start with why”, so I decided to go through some practical example from K2 world to illustrate when you may need to perform this operation. We will consider scenario of migration of already existing K2 database to a new SQL Server instance. This scenario will serve us as an illustration and essential “why part”. I also feel that it may facilitate understanding of the process itself.

How to Migrate VMware vCenter from Windows to VCSA 6.7 Update 1

Do you have problems with lack of space when using SQL express or setting up ODBC parameters before installing vCenter? So it’s time for you to think about VMware vCenter Server Appliance (VCSA) – a pre-configured virtual appliance running Linux (Project Photon OS). It has been optimized specifically for vCenter services. What about the scale? VCSA supports up to 2000 hosts or 3500 VMs per appliance. Sounds good, right? In addition, VCSA provides enhanced security. Why wait? Take a step into the future!

Configure Azure Backup from Windows Admin Center

Windows Admin Center offers a great web interface for managing Windows Server. Microsoft’s desire to bring the capabilities of the hybrid cloud to on-premises systems has led to the inclusion of the Azure Backup feature in Windows Admin Center. Now you can configure Azure Backup for your Windows Server with just a few clicks and save your time and resources. This is especially suitable for those who have a small environment in a data center. Or maybe it is hosted by another service provider, where having your own backup infrastructure does not make much sense.

vCenter Server Appliance 6.7 U1 Installation and configuration Guide

VMware vCenter server Appliance 6.7 U1 (VCSA) is a VM running Photon OS, which is hardened and optimized VMware Linux distribution.   All future releases will only be available as VCSA which is the preferred deployment method of vCenter Server.

The migration process is quite easy, but today we’ll focus only on clean installation and configuration of VCSA in a new environment.
