Disabling Hibernation in Windows 2008

By default, the hibernation in Windows 2008 enabled. As well, the Hibernate file (C:\Hiberfil.sys, hidden OS file) takes around more than 1GB. Most of us., not going to do hibernate a server. So, I feel that it is not required. We can save some disk space as well. I checked with Power Settings on Control Panel to disable the hibernate and delete the file. Unfortunately, Hibernate is disabled state in all power settings (Windows 2008 having 3 diffrent power options). Still, I was unable to delete. Found a way to delete it. Enter into command prompt by using RUN. Then type the following command to disable the hibernate.


Now, the hiberfil.sys is deleted. If you change your mind turn on the hibernate back:


How To Delay Auto Starting Virtual Machines In VMWare Server

How To Delay Auto Starting Virtual Machines In VMWare Server Running multiple Operating Systems as Virtual Machines has numerous advantages, until it comes time to reboot the Host Computer (running VMWare Server). You either need to manually start all VM's or allow them to startup at once causing a system wide bottleneck to occur on the Host.

Instead of trying to start up all VM's at once, you can configure VMWare Server to delay the startup times for each Virtual Machine, and specify the order in which each VM starts. In fact, an option also exist to auto shutdown each VM in a delayed ordered, making way for a more responsive Host during reboots.
For reasons unknown, you cannot configure delayed starting and shutdown of VM's using VMWare Server Console. Instead you need to use the web based VMWare Management Interface (VMI).
The Management Interface is installed during VMWare Server installation if it detects a Web Server (Apache or IIS) is installed. It can also be installe…

ESX 3i Free...

VMware’s CEO Paul Maritz just announced that in the near future ESXi will be available for free, that’s right you can just download it. Support is optional and sold separately. ESXi will become available for free over the next week. The planned date is July 28'2008.

The new 3i edition was introduced end of last year.

It doesn’t change the characteristics of the hypervisor but fundamentally chances a part of its architecture, dropping the Console Operating System (COS) and reducing the overall system footprint to 32Mb.

Happy Virtualization!!!
