As promised earlier, this post will begin a series on how we use the data from various collection tools here in HP support to diagnose problems on your servers.
Since the majority of the cases I handle involve VMware, I will start with the VMware ESXi diagnostic bundle.

HP will conduct two online sessions where you can chat with HP support experts on VMware. It’s a unique opportunity to ask them your questions.
