Phew! It seems like ages now when I take a look at my last post. I had laid out a pretty comprehensive charter for the VMware ESX Server operations tutorial series and yet due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to lay low for a while. To cut to the chase, I will complete the entire series in one fell swoop starting tomorrow. I just need to get my bearings right and fulfill my promise before leaving on a trans-Himalayan trek ;-). Have fun and thanks for the patience!
