It’s one of the highlights of the year, and this year not only didn’t disappoint, it was the best one yet. While the conference is officially ending tomorrow, the majority of the action has taken place, and the closing party is tonight as well. Did I mention The Black Keys are playing (woohoo!), a great band I look forward to seeing live.

This year VMware set up a ‘pub crawl’ style reception for the vendor floor last night. I can say from experience (mostly good, but occasionally bad) that a conference host that looks for creative ways to continue to get the attendees in front of the sponsors is very much appreciated. Kudos to the entire VMWorld team for a great event! This week has continually, and at times overwhelmingly, had great booth traffic. I love the conversations and interaction with attendees that ask questions about how they can do more with virtual. We’ve solved problems together, built strategies together, and we’ll see success together from this.

One of my favorite things about VMWorld is the attendee mindset. People come here to have fun and socialize, and San Francisco is a great town, but they are here first and foremost to learn, explore, and grow from the event. The sessions are so numerous to choose from that many organizations send a few representatives, the labs are educational and practical. Where I see the best example of this mindset is at the vendor booth interactions. Yes, people like the free stuff, and love to win prizes, but there have been more meaningful and quality conversations I’ve had with dozens of attendees at the booth than in years past.

On to the technology – there are still so many, too many people still not virtualizing as much as they want to. My impressions and the industry analysis have both supported that this still revolves around the lack of virtualizing tier 1 applications. If there was a Family Feud style gameshow with admins playing, the top answer for “Things you might hear at...

“And… here, we, go.” – (Heath Ledger’s immortal performance as Joker)

The opening reception was actually as expected, it was bigger than ever; at least it seemed that way, looking more like GITEX than ever before. With the announced attendance of 22,000 people it would have to be bigger. The floor was packed with the usual suspects, up and comers going for bigger booths than before, and the usual plethora of new entries to the field. Where 5 or 6 years ago, there were a hundred or so smaller startups, now it looks like a VC swap meet, with vendors touting their niche solution, with seemingly half of them looking to get bought up by one of the bigger fish.

Cloud.

That’s it. If you were missing the cloud shift, it’s been seismic (no pun intended with Sunday’s earthquake). The evolution of how data is managed has either come full circle (if you’ve been around for 15 or so years in this field) or bridged the gap to what is the consumerization of IT and acceptance...

As I sit on the current alternative of the ‘nerd bird’ (as we used to affectionately call the American AUS-SJC direct) I’m on the DFW-SFO, catching up and geeking out with old colleagues, analysts I’ve worked with and listening to the grumpy lady in front of me who keeps calling the flight attendant over to complain about a luggage policy – I’m reminded of how much things have changed since I was an attendee at my first VMWorld in 2007. Back in my product management days I was an eager attendee for sessions and labs – thoroughly enjoying all 3 hours of my 2 hour VCB scripting lab. VCB scripting is a long gone requirement, and equally far down the list of my favorite experiences at VMWorld.

This week I’ll be posting updates about key topics, trends, and new emerging technologies and strategies for IT. What’s changed so much about VMWorld is the virtualization itself – I feel an almost parental pride in seeing how virtualization is (in the immortal words of Vince Vaughn, as...

Hello to everyone,

I was facing problems while configuring a backup exec job with Oracle RAC over Linux environment.
I would like to share how it was solved.

Scenario:

Using Symantec Backup Exec 2012, Oracle RAC and Red Hat 6.3

Problem:

While configuring a backup exec job with oracle RAC, on 'Backup Selection' tab it was not possible expand Oracle RAC database tree.

Error messages: Oracle Database "Instance"(Unavailable) or Authentication failed on connection

Solution:

Add O/S user that has DBA privileges (the owner of oracle binaries) to the beoper group
Copy /etc/oratab to /etc/VRTSralus/beoratab
Do not eeplace the dbname entries in /etc/VRTSralus/beoratab with the name of the instance of the RAC database on that machine. Keep the same.
This example uses the root account to configure the...

I wanted to share my problems and solution regarding Backup Exec 2012 and the Service Pack 4 update in hopes it might help others.  I’ve seen several threads on this topic, but the official response from Symantec has always been, “there are no known bengine SP4 issues”, which I’m not convinced of.  My maintenance is not current for reasons I won’t get into, but because of that, I have not filed a tech support request on this topic, but rather figured it out on my own.  I’m evaluating my needs vs BE2014, which I’d reinstate my maintenance for.

My setup is fairly small and simple.  I have 6 servers being backed up, including the BE server.  1 is using an Agent for Applications and Database server and the rest are Agents for Windows.  Each server has its own job that is a backup to disk (external USB3.0).  There are 4 disks, 3 have unique jobs and 1 of them is shared amongst 4 jobs.  No jobs overlap and there is no...
