VMware “Student Archive”

November 2nd, 2010 by jason Leave a reply »

A gentleman by the name of William Griffith is credited with maintaining a documentation and utility library which contains a whole lot of centralized VMware resources.  In the “Student Archive” you’ll find platform specific and application specific documents and best practices.  You’ll also find some documentation for partner integration.  A disclaimer describes the compilation as follows:

The set of files known as “student archive” has been compiled as a convenient reference for students of VMware classes. As an archive, the files contained in the document set may not be the most current document available. No warranty is provided or implied about any particular document as being fully accurate and up to date. If your requirements are for absolutely up to date info, please go to the appropriate document repository to retrieve the authorized most up to date document you need.

The contents of the library is indexed throughout various folders to help you quickly find what you need (be sure to unzip using folder structure).  The library can be used as a planning and deployment guide, a desk reference, or a study guide for the VCP, VCAP-DCA, and VCAP-DCD exams.

The compressed size of the archive is 295MB and you’ll need an additional 418MB to extract it all.  Grab your copy of the current archive here.

Update 11/3/10: The number of downloads allowed by Dropbox has been exceeded and therefore the download link above no longer works, at least temporarily.  I may regret this but in the effort of supporting the virtualization masses, I’ll mirror the download at my own dropbox.  If this mirror buries my blog bandwidth, I may yank it.  I’ve got QoS capability but since my dropbox and blog run over the same port and server, I can’t limit bandwidth of one without impacting the other.  I’d suggest downloading as a background task.  Go make some coffee or dinner.  If ya’ll have another reliable mirror source and would like to help, please let me know.

Update 11/11/10: Bill Griffith has found has way to this blog and has this to say in the comments below:

I have uploaded a new version to the old link for now. I’m not sure if it’ll remain there long as someone else is going to be taking over the responsibility after this week. The link is http://bit.ly/student_archive. I am at this moment adding some more app specific docs and will upload it this evening.

Thanks everyone for adding alternatives. This thing is much more popular than I had anticipated and is being downloaded at about 250GB/month.

Bill, thanks for this great resource.  If possible, do let us know who is taking this over and where the updates can be found in the future.  Thanks a lot!

  1. Jason,

    Posting the link has caused a surge in traffic to the users dropbox account thus dropbox has temporarily disabled his public link access.

  2. tom says:

    too bad – not availably – any other known source
    “Oops! (509)
    This account’s public links are generating too much traffic and have been temporarily disabled! “

  3. David says:

    Looks like the dropbox account is overloaded……

  4. Chris Hills says:

    Could you please provide a torrent for this because the link is currently unavailable due to high traffic. Thanks!

  5. jason says:

    Sorry about the broken link. As an infrequent user of dropbox myself, I wasn’t aware of their utilization constraints and I did not anticipate a temporary shutdown. I will see if i can provide an alternative.

  6. Chris says:

    Hi Jason!

    Sounds like a great compilation, so I hope it’ll be up again soon.

    Did you consider “sendspace.com” for sharing? I tried them once or twice and they were quite reliable.

  7. jason says:

    Blog post updated with a download mirror. I hope it helps. Please be patient.

  8. Tom says:

    Yes, a torrent would be best…you can readily reseed when it’s updated, for you or anyone who does any ongoing maintenance of this zip file, I recommend including the file date in the file name, such as 2010.11.04.student.archive.zip, then people will know the newer the file the more current it is. Thank you for reposting the file. Please also consider megaupload.com and similar services. Thank you, Tom

  9. I just uploaded to a one of my machine..

    As of earlier this evening I counted 240 (attempted) downloads. I can’t push 70GB in a day. I’m going to remove the download in the morning. The blog is experiencing too much latency. Hopefully enough copies got around. One person did post a mirror – thank you for that!

  11. gguglie says:

    Hi,
    I uploaded the file to rapidshare.
    Hope this is help 🙂

  12. Thanks for putting this together Jason, it’s excellent! and thanks gguglie and Kamil for uploading it to your sites.

  13. I have uploaded a new version to the old link for now. I’m not sure if it’ll remain there long as someone else is going to be taking over the responsibility after this week. The link is http://bit.ly/student_archive. I am at this moment adding some more app specific docs and will upload it this evening.
    Thanks everyone for adding alternatives. This thing is much more popular than I had anticipated and is being downloaded at about 250GB/month.

  14. jason says:

    Bill, thanks for this great resource. If possible, do let us know who is taking this over and where the updates can be found in the future. Thanks a lot!

  15. Bill Griffith says:

    I got an email the other day from Linus Bourque who will be taking over the archive. I would expect him to announce to one of the alias’s about it soon. Since I am unsubbed from all the vmware alias’s now, I won’t see any posts about it. Keep your eyes peeled for the news.

  16. chand says:

    Thanks a lot for sharing such a wonderfull resource really appreciated your efforts and time… thanks a lot…

  17. Markus says:

    The link seems to be broken. Now you get a 404 not found error. Does anyone new the new location for the student archive?

  18. jason says:

    I’m uploading the 2 archives to dropbox. They should be there 40 minutes from now. The 2nd archive is newer & contains more content.

  19. BTW, Lab Utilities\winscp429setup.exe gets flagged as containing Win32/OpenCandy AdWare…
