Some jobs you have to do just enough not to get fired. Nothing more, nothing less. I was in an environment like that before this job, hated it, but it was a paycheck. Now i am in a job where i have more freedom and can take risks without getting my head chopped off if they don't pan out. The effort is appreciated.

meh. bad advice.

Be civil where possible, until people turn out to be asshats. If you're constantly having to cover for someone, stop. Make sure management knows what you're doing and how well you're doing. Take control of your own destiny, and set yourself up for success. You can't get ahead without putting yourself out there a little. You've learned your lesson now.

If you can actually prove any misaction on his part, I would politely explain to them (not including the golf, that's just tattling). Keep it on a technical level. Tell the politely you'd still like to use them as a reference, and wanted your side explained. Perhaps they'll even rectify the situation. At least they'll know to look for more ineptitude on his part.

On a side note, what hardware are you seeing people put ESX on?
We use Dell 2900 systems. Dual Quad core does just fine. We also use Virtugo on the ESX 2.x environment to optimize the shares. Since they are out of business, we are looking at vConverter (Vizioncore, Inc.) for the ESX3.5 environment.

I take it you are using ESX 3.5. I wish I could get you in where I work. They have a very large environment and all of us are currently overloaded.

We used Acronis and the predecessor to Vmware Converter (P2V) to migrate to ESX 2.5. Currently we are moving everything to 3.5.

Hopefully the backstabber will get theirs someday soon.

All of our ESX boxes are on Supermicro 6025Bs. Just curious what others are using.
