Announcing vijavaNG: Much Lighter and Faster with Commercial License and Support

Since I left VCE four months ago, I have been working intensively on a commercial version of the open source vijava API supporting all versions of vSphere APIs (5.5 is the latest). If you have used the open source API, you know the vijava is much faster than other alternatives. Since its debut, it has been used in many commercial products from companies like Cisco, EMC, HP, etc.

Generating Checksum on Windows

I got an interesting request from one of the enterprises which uses vijava in their product. Although there are downloads for binary and source packages on the sourceforge Web site, they still would like me to create the checksum as I am the trustable source for that. As I was told, the checksum is required by their build team. I don’t know how is exactly used, but I decided to help out anyway.

How to Notify All the Active vSphere Users?

As system administrators, you may have used the feature that sends a message to all users. It’s very helpful when you want to change something that might affect others, or ask for particular attention from new users who log in later.

It’s simply 3 steps as described vSphere Client Help:

  1. From the Home page of the vSphere Client, click Sessions.
  2. Type the message in the Message of the day box.
  3. Click Change.

The message is sent to all the currently login users, and until the message is changed, any new users see the message upon logining to the vCenter.

Now, how to do with the API?
