I wear many hats at my workplace.

Primarily a Database Developer, but also programmer, web designer, DBA, sysadmin, and general office bitch.

I work for a small custom software house in Sydney, Australia. We use all manner of tools - but mainly MSSQL and a Rapid Application Tool called eDeveloper uniPaaS Magic XPA.

comment Hardware status with ESXi shows incomplete hardware info; wrong BMC details
It has the correct values in there. Oh, I also tried blanking the details out and re-entering them. It took a very long time to commit the changes, but didn't make any difference.

Not immediately; but I could plan maintenance to do it but not for a while unfortunately. Although it's been like this for months and I've only just got to it on my todo list, so it's not like I'm in a huge hurry.

comment HP LeftHand VSA “Usable Space” less than “Raw Space”
@ShaneMadden not expand whilst keeping the node online anyway. VSA has a few limitations like that. Single vNIC, no online expansion, and it just makes a SPAN over multiple VMDKs. If you can work with these limitations it's OK. (Note: Physical LeftHand nodes do not have these limitations)

comment BGINFO with MySQL for storing computer information
@Eric - if you want to collect system information, there are better ways of doing it. Querying the systems via WMI is probably a much better way, as it does not involve installing and relying on a third party: blogs.msdn.com/b/oldnewthing/archive/2004/10/21/245652.aspx

comment Storage Spaces - Why Use Parity?
Corruption repair? With traditional RAID, if your data is corrupted, it's corrupted multiple times. ZFS attempts to fix this with RAID-Z, which is software-only. I think you're thinking of a write cache, which commits the write to flash-based memory with a backup battery so that if the drive fails during the commit process, it can be re-commited once the array comes back online. Software RAID does not have this, and mirrors do not need this. Only parity-based hardware-raid needs this.

You can find the answers you're looking for in the question that this is a duplicate of - mainly the "good when/bad when" headers on each RAID type.
