That’s right, its finally here, vCheck v5 has arrived !
If you have been using previous versions of this report then its time to update, I have added lots of cool new features and checks which make this report (even if I do say so) awesome !
Some of the highlighted features of v5 are:
Each section now has comments telling you why I think it may be an issue, there are often links to blog posts and useful information for further reading, an example is below:
Obviously for the experts among you these comments can easily be removed in the script by changing the $comments = $true to $false
Automatic searching for log warnings
There is now a handy link to both the VMware KB site and Google which will automatically search for the errors found on these sites, no longer do you have a reason for not investigating those errors !
Multiple new checks
There are so many new checks that I have now created a dedicated page on my site for this script which lists some basic information, this will of course change over time as more detail is needed and I hope to shoot some video soon showing how to change some of the key areas.
To access the page click the “Featured Scripts” area above and select “vCheck (Daily Report)” or click here.
I have been bugging various people to help me with this script, whether it be for information or html help, thanks to everyone who helped me out and also to the beta testers.
To mention a few of the people specifically, thanks goes to:
Raphael Schitz – As always he has contributed some great checks for v5 and thought of areas I would never have. Amazing job my friend.
Duncan Epping – I have bothered him more than once for clarification on the way things work, cheers mate.
Andy Grant – He did a great job helping me tidy up my HTML and add new areas.
The beta testers – you know who you are !
Sorry if I missed anyone !
