Welcome to the site, my name is Jeff and I have been working in the IT field since the early 90's. Most of what I post here is related to work that I do for the various companies that I have worked for over the years. Please feel free to look around ask questions or post comments (if available).

  • HA/FDM fails to restart a virtual machine with the error: Failed to open file /vmfs/volumes/UUID/.dvsData/ID/100 Status (bad0003)= Not found

    This came across my newsfeed last night and this morning, and before I lose the links I thought I’d post them up here.

  • Updated New-Printjob script

    The information I’m going to cover here was previously covered on TechNet. I’m posting this because this morning I came across an error in my PrintLogger script.To be fair it was an error in the script, there is something else going on. I have created a thread, but I don’t know if I’ll get much in the way of response, as the only hit on Google for the exact error message is a German site.

  • DPM Sizing Script

    Yesterday I told you how I had decided to automate a portion of my DPM routine. As usual this got the fires burning and a second script was born. I would have told you about it yesterday but I wanted to make the appearance of doing actual work 😉

  • Weekly DPM Monitoring

    Part of my responsibility is handling storage. This includes allocating, deallocating, backing up and restoring. Now we’ve been using DPM for quite some time and are currently running on DPM 2010. Since this past summer I have personally come to peace with the fact that my users don’t know what the delete key is, so I have set some things in place to make it easy for me to monitor overall usage of storage for the School.
