GuessMyOS plugin released

March 29th, 2009 by jason Leave a reply »

Andrew the magnificent (vExpert Andrew Kutz of Hyper9) has unleashed a new plugin for the VMware Virtual Infrastructure Client called “GuessMyOS“.

System Requirements:

  • Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1
  • Microsoft .NET 3.5 (might as well install the SP1 version while you’re at it)
  • VMware Virtual Infrastructure Client

Andrew is the plugin Master. Now that he is officially and fully commissioned by Hyper9 to crank out cool stuff (instead of coding on his spare time), expect neato tools at a more consistent pace. I highly advise following his H9Labs RSS feed to stay up to date with his latest works:

Oh. What does it do? Remember VMware GSX Server and the web MUI where VMs were graphically represented by the guest OS thumbnail? That’s what it does, but now for ESX and ESXi. One thing you’ll notice is that in the Hosts and Clusters view, it displays the thumbnail in the left column, but not the main window pane on the right side of the screen. Same behavior in the Virtual Machines and Templates view. Maybe in the next version. Thanks a lot Andrew and keep up the great work! I can absolutely say that we live in a better VMware world with you in it.
