Since I'm preparing to write a short series of aritlces on my recent Home Lab purchases, I figured I should preface those articles with a little history on my current hardware...

During the summer of 2011 around June/July, I wanted to have a home environment to install, configure, and test things - you know, the typical techie Hands-On environment. My requirements were as follows:

  • Try to keep costs down
  • Try for quiet equipment
  • Minimize power consumption

This article will describe the original purchase and progression of the lab.

On the VMware blog I have explained how vRealize Automation Anything as a Service (XaaS) work with Orchestrator and how a vRO plug-in works.

In this tutorial I will walk you through how I managed to implement Microsoft DNS as a service I used for the screenshot examples on that blog including:
  • The Microsoft DNS dynamic types plug-in
  • DNS record as a service in vRA
  • DNS record as a blueprint component

This is the first public tutorial on how to create a Dynamic Types plug-in from scratch and the overall methodology used applies to other integrations.

In a previous article, I taught you How to retrieve a script Resource from vRO via curl. That can be helpful to some people, but how about updating that script? Easy! Read on...

I recently spent time with a customer doing a vRO workshop with them. During the course of the workshop, I was asked how you could retrieve a script that had been stored as a resource element on a vRO server using curl. Well, I had never done that before so I set out to figure it out and was able to provide the solution before I left! Throughout this article, I will be using a vRA 7.2 embedded vRO. The biggest difference here is only the port that we use to access the API. For embedded, it is 443 and standalone vRO uses 8281.

I recently came across a thread asking about how to disable Storage I/O Statistics Collection using PowerCLI. The thread referenced this article by Michael Webster: Disable SIOC IO Metrics Collection For Auto Tiering Storage Systems . In one of the comments, someone asked about using PowerCLI.. Unfortunately there was no answer there so I thought - I might be able to figure this out! With regards to checking that box, I can't say whether it's a good idea or not, my purpose here was just to illustrate how to do it via PowerCLI and vRO.

This category of articles will be dedicated to Home Labs :)
