Liveblogging from VMworld 2007

Like Alessandro at and Vincent at Virtrix, I’ll be liveblogging next week from VMworld 2007 in San Francisco, CA, USA.  (I actually thought I had announced this fact in a previous blog post about VMworld 2007, but I went back and looked and apparently I didn’t.  Go figure.)

I’ve never done any liveblogging before, so it will be interesting to see how it turns out.  Still, with all the exciting announcements that are expected next week, I don’t think there’s any better time to try out my liveblogging skills.  With so many other bloggers and news outlets covering the keynotes and shows, I’m sure there will be a fair amount of duplication, but I’ll do my best to keep things reasonably fresh and not a “copy-and-paste” from elsewhere.

Thanks for visiting, and stay tuned!

    I have a question about your script to rename computers remotely. Unfortunately I can not leave a comment on that post. I’m not exactly sure how to run this script. When I run it via the windows command line I get the message:

    1 was unexpected at this time.

    the pc does not get renamed and I get an emtpy results file. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you

    Looking forward to it!


    You must have a syntax error in your command. Please note that when you embed DOS commands into a batch file and you are using a percent symbol, you typically need to double-up the percent symbols in the batch file. That might be your problem. Good luck!

    Hi Scott, I’ll be there as well. Hopefully I run into you there in the press room or blogger table or something. Keep up the great work! And here’s to a successful VMworld 2007.
