sorry bumping into this thread but I thought it might keep the information at one place.
Im just reading the NetApp and VMWare Best Practises-Guide and stumbeled over this GOS Stuff.
As I understand this is what needs to be done:
Use the Guest OS (GOS) timeout scripts to set the SCSI I/O timeout values for supported Linux, Solaris, and Windows guest operating systems
but why whats the benefit ?
what issues might I ran into if not doing so ?
does this change have any impact to productiv system when done after deployment ?
the Guide im reading says:
1. Mount the ISO image provided by the VSC.
2. From within vCenter Server, select a VM to upgrade, right-click it, and select edit settings.
3. Select CDROM and the ISO radio button.
4. Select the appropriate ISO, matching the OS of the VM you are configuring.
5. Select OK.
6. Connect to the VM console.
7. Run the script for the OS of the VM.
8. Exit and unmount the ISO image.
9. Repeat as necessary for each VM.
Im not sure where to find this ISO provided by the VSC, is there any regedit value I can rollout to my Windows machines instead ?
