Since I was snowed in on Christmas, I got a bit of time to play around with my little server here at home. I got it this fall and installed VMware ESXi on it to do a bit of experimenting on. Today, I was getting a bit of cabin fever, so I started playing around with some of the features that I saw existed in vSphere 4, but never got a chance to try out. I noticed an option to hot-add and hot-remove virtual CPUs to guests which sounded like a good deal of fun on this wintry day. Nope, apparently the option exists for me, but I can’t actually save it without a proper license. They could have at least “grayed” the option out so I couldn’t click on it.. Or, at the very least, VMware could have at least proof-read the error message at least once:
Nice work, VMware. Some classic software developer English, right there.. Perhaps Ralph from the Simpsons wrote this dialog?
