comment How are system admins deploying software across a network for OSX?
If you have the package already ARD is your best bet but if you're going to develop them from scratch, I'm a big supporter of Radmind.

comment 2x vCenter Essentials on 1 host
I did this for a little while while we transferred data off our old VMware cluster (3.5) to the new cluster (4.1). As long as they are different VMs it works perfectly.

comment Increasing a drive capacity in ESX3.5 not working?
I was going to say that it was a problem with a snapshot. You can't make changes to a VMs disks when snapshots exist. I've run across this a couple times when other sysadmins have created a snapshot but not cleaned up after themselves.

comment ESXi vSphere SDK
Eval mode does allow write access. @BParker You'll need to purchase the Standard version of vSphere for write access (vmware.com/products/vsphere/buy/editions_comparison.html). I'm guessing they have some key that allows them write access to the servers without it being licensed.

comment Preferable VM software for a small dev team
I think ESXi is a better solution when you're going to dedicate a server to it. Because it runs on the bare metal you don't have to worry about the extra overhead the OS causes when the VM requests resources and it's just one less thing to have to manage. I've used virtual box on my desktop a couple times but I have had a better experience using VMware's products (VMware workstation and WMware Server).

comment Blocking applications on Macs
I would highly recommend getting a Mac Mini with OSX Server on it and joining the computers to the Open Directory domain. I found that it's a huge pain to manage local MCX files (so much so I gave up on it) across more than a few machines if you don't have an excellent software push program like RADMIND. I think the $1000 (or $2000 if you want redundancy) is a small price to pay for how much easier it makes your job. :-)
