My new blog. Coming soon. Welcome to my new blog/web site. Guess it's a little of both. Or neither. I thought I would work on some content before going live and even then gradually publish entries. In addition to everything else I'm also trying to learn WordPress.
I mentioned in my prior post (updates to that post below) I had to re-install the Hyper-V server OS. This did indeed go smoothly and has worked since then. The main problem I have with the OS this time is very intermittent errors with connecting to it with Hyper-V manager. Server Manager works, WAC works … Continue reading R520 Hyper-V 2019: News and updates (Late Nov 2019)
After being very frustrated with the performance of the combination of virtual machines and my drive pool, I decided to re-install Hyper-V server 2019. Before doing so however I decided it would be a good idea to go through and record some settings in case I needed to go back to a prior configuration. It … Continue reading R520 Hyper-V 2019: Lets try this again
After spending I don't know how long on various adventures through first setting up Hyper-V 2019 on the server then further adventures of properly configuring networking on the server I've come to the conclusion the performance of the virtual machines is not good enough. I went through several iterations of what I'm loosely calling "benchmarks" … Continue reading R520 Hyper-V 2019: Well that was fun
These meta entries were intended to be more posts about the posts. Stuff that may not make sense to go into in an actual post. That didn't really last very long though. And this one kind of throws that out the window entirely. I happen to live in the area affected by the massive blackouts … Continue reading The Blackening 2: Electric Boogaloo (Meta #6)
This is a follow up post to my several prior posts about both Hyper-V 2019 as an OS, using the Hyper-V hypervisor for virtualization and my server hardware of choice, the Dell R520. I have a summary and conclusions clarifying the things I learned as I wrote this post at the bottom. Any corrections/comments etc … Continue reading Hyper-V 2019: The v-switchening
Classic For the record I am in fact not old enough to get that reference. The reference to the folder junction what's your function not to the Captain America meme specifically because that what's-your-function thing..is..from...a..70s...forget it. I've been planning to have my own emulation setup for a long time now. Actually made quite a lot … Continue reading Folder junction, what’s your function
Note: the below was written and left in a draft state nearly six months ago. It's probably a better idea to delete it and write something from scratch. Instead, I'm just going to post it. It's a little background on my prior windows automated installation experience. Also this entirely about XP/2003. This project is indirectly … Continue reading Windows auto-installing: background and introduction
