comment iSCSI switch replacement (2 VMware hosts)
Did you replicate the same VLAN structures on the new switches as they were on the older ones?

comment Windows Server 2012 R2 NIC Teaming NFS Share ESXi
You need to show us much more detail - such as the specific teaming setup on the W2012 server and the same on the ESXi host.

comment Finding correct IOPS to set limit with ESXi 5.5u2 and vSphere
Funny, I used to go with 180 for years too but these newer disks really do push it up a tiny bit - but you're right about the controller quality - especially with SSDs, so many of them get bogged down with crappy ones.

comment IP on different subnet mask
So you have a /23 then? in that case 255.255.254.0 should work, if not they've given you bad info

comment How many SSDs are needed to assure redundancy?
@FranciscoMariaCalisto To add weight to EEAA's comment, you need someone to help you who knows that R3 hasn't been used since the early '90's and R5 hasn't been recommended this decade. This is either homework, which isn't allowed on this site, or you're out of your depth and need help. Sorry if you feel we're being harsh but as we make clear when you sign up this site is for professional sysadmin, not learners, not home users, not tinkerers.

comment How many SSDs are needed to assure redundancy?
@FranciscoMariaCalisto - no problem, it's a badly worded and researched question, I've answered you but it's more than you deserve - please don't post again until you can meet the requirements laid out very clearly in the help pages we ask new users to read before posting.

Nope, you've chosen to run your server WAAAY outside of the expected configuration, you have to deal with the consequences.

comment Do we need vCenter for only one vSphere and Horizon View?
Yeah, it very specifically states in the Horizon 6 documentation (it's not hard to find, shame you didn't bother looking yourself) 'If you are using vSphere, you must use a supported version of vSphere ESX/ESXi hosts and vCenter Server' as Ben has already said - I don't see what's complex about that?

comment How to modify maximum RAM usage in vCenter 6.0
A) Yes, they want to move away from all Windows-based services, and before v7 too, already the Windows version of vC with the built-in-DB is already less capable that VCSA (though that might actually be NDA sorry, I work closely with them) and B) I have to admit I've never compared them - even during VCIX-exam-prep - that's how unlikely I am to deal with the Windows version :) Most people don't care because their hosts have easily enough memory to make any tiny variation insignificant - are you very memory constrained? if so that's not exactly best-practice.

comment How to modify maximum RAM usage in vCenter 6.0
The whole point of the VCSA is that you don't HAVE to do anything with the linux side of things, zero - it just works as an appliance! It really does make sense to drop the Windows version (and the .net client) as soon as possible as they're 'going away' soon enough.
