Troubleshooting VMware issues with MindMaps
The guys on VMTN have released a few new mindmaps to help with various bits of troubleshooting.
Initially, I thought, great, another flowchart . . but I run a few scenarios through my lab, thinking that instead of troubleshooting myself, I would simply follow the mind map and I was surprised at how well they cover the kind of problems we see both regularly on our various environments and also how well they cover issues that I regularly see on the VMware communities site.
Oddly, I had never spotted these before – but it seems there are a bunch available at http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/general/knowledgebase?view=documents
Below are the 4 that I figure are going to be most pertinent in current environments – a very hany tool indeed.
What I really like about these is not simply that they produce a ‘flow chart’ for troubleshooting, but the fact that once you get to the lowest level on the mind map, there is a little infinity sign that you can click on – which takes you to a knowledge base article for each solution. this means that just about anyone, no matter what their level, can use these
