VMware VIMA

While I was searching for a syslog appliance, ran across Duncan Epping's blog about VMotioning Service Console. Following his information and went over to VMware's VIMA webpage, downloaded it and gave it a try. I got to say it is like a bomb. Got to love it. It give ESX admins another central point of management of ESX, besides vCenter, via command lines. William Lam's VMware ESX and ESXi Scripts & Resources even gives some great examples on how to make use of this great appliance. With RCLI & VI Perl Toolkit integrated into the applicance, ESX admin now can make use of it from one central place. VIMA still got lots of places needed to improve, but it is really a greate starting point.
