comment How to add an exported virtual server (ovf) from ESX 3.5 and import it to ESX 4.1 with vCentre?
All you have to do is attempt to login to the old 3.5 ESX system with the "new" vSphere client, and it will automatically download the necessary components and work with both versions forevermore.

comment RAID 6 vs RAID 10? Which would you choose
If your real goal is to have a "safe" place to store backups, then I would just buy a pile of disks, then swap disks daily and put the unused ones in a firesafe, or even better, off-site in a secure location. RAID is only going to help with performance and uptime in the even of a single disk failure, but not if the server melts or the building burns down. In the past this was done with tape drives, but these days, extra disks are probably a much more economical way to go, and easier to manage.

comment How does VMWare generate unique MAC addresses?
Out of curiosity, why add rules to the switches? Security policy or something else?

comment VMWare Image and Compression
If the disk is a "Thick" disk, i.e. it has been pre-allocated, and it is mostly empty, then he can convert it to "thin" prior to putting it on the ESXi box, so it won't take up all his space (although it will shut off when he runs out of space, but that is another issue).
