I had always admire his talent and vision as a Technology leader since I was a kids and the days I know about Computer. I always told my friend about how a success leader just like him had made the changes to our life today. Some people may not agree with him, but they do see him as a target for competition.

VMware vCenter Mobile Access on Apple iPhone

Posted on March 30th, 2009 in Tips, vCenter, vSphere | 2 Comments »

I just got my vmware vCenter mobile access installed today. The current release version from VMware is version 1.0. It allow mobile phone access to specific vCenter and ESX host for management purpose. Apple iPhone had been included into support list and I did success to manage my vCenter by using vpn on my iphone. I have download the OVF format source from vmware and imported to my Virtual Infrastructure with vCenter. This mobile access virtual appliance is running on Centos with minimum resources. The original image will be only 2GB hard drive, 512 MB of RAM and 1 vCPU. This is enough to support the requirement of mobile access interface. I had installed the virtual appliance on vSphere, the next generation of ESX server. It allow you to browse through any VM farm within the network, providing you have the privilege to do so.

I had tested with the vMotion from my iPhone and it work perfectly. Although the management interface is limited through mobile phone, but it should be enough for management purpose. Below are some screen shots I captured during my test.
