VirtualBox, KeyAccess

September 20th, 2008

Quick post about recent stuffs.  Work’s been busy…

VirtualBox rocks my socks.  The end.  No raw disk support (a la boot camp) yet, but it is coming.  I only boot camp for games anyways.

I have been working with Sassafras to track down a KeyAccess audit bug that happens during audits with Altiris SVS running.  I’m not sure if KeyAccess, Software Virtualization Services, or a corrupt chunk of crap in my newest Windows image’s registry is to blame.  I should have some time to troubleshoot and grep through debug files this week.  Turning off auditing (setting the license from Full to Basic) seems to have given me reprieve for now.

2TB LUN

FYI, the largest LUN you can do anything with in VMWare is 2TB. Even if you use raw LUN mapping. LVM is your friend.
