My buddy Dudley Smith has done it again.  He’s taken the latest release of my vSphere 4 card and blown it up for printing poster style.

Go and grab it here: vSphere4 card – poster size

Also, just so you don’t think I’ve been resting on my laurels and letting everyone else do the work, here’s a little preview of what I’ve been working on.

    Forbes has done it again! Thanks for the reference card. Any advice as to the best size to print? US legal size a bit small for my bad eyesight.

    • I don’t understand US print sizes too well, but I know you should be able to print out the regular card on A3 OK, if you scale it fit the paper. This poster version is scaled to 23.44″ x 35.26″, which I guess is pretty close to 22 x 34 poster size (ANSI D).

    One comment: In the TSO section, the adapter required for VM’s must be “Enhanced VMXnet vNIC” or “E1000″ Reference page 4



    • Hi Marius,
      Thanks for the link. However that PDF is regarding version 3.5. The documentation for TSO with vSphere is says you should only use the Enhanced VMXnet driver. See here. I think there has been problems with the e1000 support, and I think they are encouraging as many people as possible to switch to the preferred driver. Let me know if you find any other evidence though.

    Hi Forbes,

    I actually picked up this discrepancy while doing the new VTSP 4 exams on VMware’s Partner Portal. If you don’t selct the E1000 as well the question is marked as incorrect. I think it is an issue of best practice not to use the E1000
