VMWare Migration Gone Wrong (continued)

With a lot of troubleshooting and a bit of red tape, our team reached a solution to the trouble we faced during the migration process earlier. On the contrary of what was expected, the problem was within the ESXi host rather than the network.

After attempting to troubleshoot TCP/IP stack on ESXi, we discovered that ESXi troubleshooting tools were quite limited. Naturally, reaching out to our vendor for support was our next step.  Our team handles all of our clients sensitively, but ensuring that the critical software of the client remains operative is absolutely crucial! So when we didn’t receive the urgent support we would expect from a vendor in this type of situation, we had to take matters into our own hands.

Though ESXi TCP/IP troubleshooting tools was limited we found a resolution.  Navigating through the supplier’s KB and bug reports ultimately led us to our solution.

Hey Steve,So far so good going the ESXi with MineOS direction.I'm not doing the rasimdk for the world files yet. I did look at that direction, just wasn't really too concerned about it as the only thing on this server is Minecraft. MineOS is pretty nice for doing some stuff, i.e. start/stop of the server. I have had to go in and manually do some stuff to some files, mostly customization, not really a big deal. I have read about people using CentOS as the base OS, but I wanted something really small and made only for running Minecraft. And, MineOS was perfect for that. Let me know what you end up doing, if you need some help let us know.Thanks!

Unfortunately the free ESXi has a VERY limited API set enealbd in the current 3.5 U2 release. This script won't work with it. I've brought this to the product manager's attention and I'm hoping we can open the API set up to everything shortly. Not really sure why it was restricted in the first place. For now you'll need at least the Foundation SKU of Virtual Infrastructure. Got this straight out of the article .
