comment How do I restore to a delta file (disk) on Vmware ESXi
@Helvick +1 Thanks. That is what I suspected, but it is something I would have tried without knowing for sure. I think basically Step 1. and Step 8. are the only ones here that are worth anything.

comment Max ping response time?
@Graeme +1. I've seen responses like that too, but from broken packet shaper boxes that seemed to be queuing forever when things got congested. It was not uncommon for me to get ping responses as much as 10 minutes later. Yes, that is 600,000 ms. That sort of thing should be outlawed. And this was as recently as 2008.

comment Should I keep my ex-employer's data?
+1 for exactly the answer I was going to give (ok, not quite exact, I was going to say burn it onto a CD/DVD). Same difference. Wish I could give an extra +1 for sending by courier, so you have a record of the delivery. Make sure to send them a nice letter letting them know you aren't trying to threaten them about backups, but you don't want to be responsible should things go bad.

comment How can I copy a Virtual Machine on VMWare ESXi 4 while maintaining Thin Provisioning?
@Billy ONeal Really it isn't any faster? How big are your VMs? I can backup and re-deploy a copy of a 30GB vm in about 5 minutes (the particular OVF I'm working with now compresses down to about a gig). Additionally, this is script-able, so you don't have to sit around and wait for the converter.

Also, the ovftool can be used to deploy to VMware Server 2, which is really handy. Almost everything is the same, except the disk mode needs to be monolithicSparse to be the equivalent of thin.

@Billy ONeal, No, it works fine with the free version of ESXi. I just tested it to an ESXi box that is using the free license.

comment Packet loss rate with iperf and tcpdump
Wireshark will use the same backend as tcpdump to capture packets, so it won't provide different results (libpcap or winpcap, depending on the platform).
