The next UK London VMUG has been announced, if you have not been before I highly recommend it and this time there is an added treat, Jonathan Medd will be presenting a pre-event on PowerCLI, at this point in time I don’t think I will be able to attend as I am unable to get time off at work (I’m gutted) but if that changes I will also be catching Jonathans excellent session.
Firstly, the VMUG will be held on Tuesday 24th November, and is going to focus fairly heavily on vSphere. If any of you would like to present on a vSphere-related topic with which you have good, recent experience, please get in touch with Alaric as soon as possible. This could be any of installation, upgrade (hosts, VC, VMs), networking, storage, design changes, operations changes, backup, DR, third party tools, and so on. There are some fantastic giveaways that are available to anyone who presents a session, so please do get in touch with him via the forum here: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/241557?tstart=0
Secondly, please note that after this event, invitation emails will be arriving from londonvmug at yahoo dot com. Confirmation emails from yourselves will need to be sent to that address from then on (although not for this meeting). If you need to have the new address added to a white list at work, please do so as soon as possible.
Thirdly, and finally, the bit you’ve been waiting for, the event details:
