About a week ago I wrote about the new version of the NetApp best practices pdf TR-3428. I emailed with Vaughn about the fact that leaving maintenance mode before the reboot might not be the smartest thing to do. Vaughn aggreed and replied that the document would be revised soon.
This would need to go through the normal process which could take weeks. Somehow Vaughn managed to speed things up and just published the new version, 4.4, of TR-3428.
Read the document, even if you don’t own a NetApp there’s still useful info in there! In my opinion it’s one of the best VMware documents I’ve seen so far from a vendor. (Although the Cisco pdf is also a great read!)

I have been following your blog regularly and I thought you could help identify storage offering from NetApp and EMC that offer de-duplication and would be appropriate for development teams and workgroups, as well as system administrators managing esx deployments. I will be grateful to get this information for readers on my blog, this article is already referenced at
