VMware SRM 1.0 Update 1 Released5 December 2008 · Filed in News
Many thanks to Dave Lawrence, aka VMguy, for the heads-up: Update 1 for VMware Site Recovery Manager 1.0 has been released. Missing in this update: NFS support. I mention that only because I heard numerous references to NFS Support in SRM 1.0U1 at NetApp Insight a few weeks ago. Of course, they also mentioned a March 2009 timeframe, so I was a bit surprised when I saw that Update 1 had been released.
However, there are plenty of other goodies besides NFS support available in Update 1 of SRM 1.0:
SRM has separated the permission to test a recovery plan and to actually run a recovery plan. This allows more junior admins to test the plan, but reserve actually running the plan for a more senior admin, for example.
RDM support, which enables failover for MSCS clusters
Batch IP property customization
And more, but for the all the details, see Dave’s post or the Release Notes!Tags: NFS · VMware · VMwareSRM · Virtualization Previous Post: The Site's First Sponsor Next Post: Installing the VI Power Documenter
