I got back from San Francisco and was unpacking my suitcase. I noticed the USB key I
received when I picked up my T-Shirt and thought lets give it a try. This USB key contains a
beta version of VMware ESX 3i - the next generation, thin hypervisor integrated into server
hardware, providing the foundation for a virtual infrastructure. With this thin architecture,
ESX Server 3i brings unprecedented levels of security, reliability and manageability to the
IT infrastructure. I placed the memory stick in a Compaq EVO D50 desktop PC. After one
or two minutes the kernel was loading and suddenly my VMware ESX Server 3i server was
running. I downloaded the new VI client version 2.1.0 build 54592 and installed it on my
workstation. The next steps are configuring the storage and create a virtual machine. Stay
tuned.

Viktor commented on the "Loading VMware Hypervisor" article and asked me to show
more new features. Well Viktor you wish is my command. To configuring a NTP server on a
"normal" ESX server you had to logon to the Service Console and manually edit some files
before you could start the NTP daemon. Well in the ESX 3i version you can all do it from
within the VI Client. Cool huh. In the picture you see the dialog box where this new option
can be configured. Besides this new feature you should take a look at some other extras in
on the configuration tab.

Plugins extend the capabilities of VirtualCenter by adding features and functionality not
present in the base product. Generally, plugins have a server component and a client
component. After the server component of a plugin is registered with a VirtualCenter server,
the client component is available to all VirtualCenter clients connected to that VirtualCenter
server. Users can download the client component of the plugin through the VirtualCenter
client plugin manager. Users can select to enable or disable plugins installed in their
VirtualCenter client. Disabling a plugin does not uninstall it from the client; it merely disables
the functionality of the plugin. The VirtualCenter client interface might change after a plugin
is enabled. New views, tabs, menus, and menu options related to the plugin's features
are added to the interface. Existing interface items are not affected. The base product and
plugins can be upgraded independent of each other. To reach the plugin manager, select
Plugins > Manage Plugins.

On the carton box where the key was shiped in there is a warning about adding the server to
an existing VC server.
