Ozzy - well done, great info. Like Jaymes Driver, I used your process (slightly edited for use in command line only Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) to compile a new kernel with SCSI drivers included, for working with VMWare SAS disk virtual machines. Thanks mate
P.S. add a few more screen shots and it’s good for the wiki!
i have recompiled the msi pakage for two ways,
faster snapinclient.dll & faster snapinclient.dll and no fog tray autostart entry.

If you are running it on ESXi, go to your web browser and goto the IP address of your ESXi server. On the right hand side, you can “Browse datastores in this host’s inventory” which is an option on the right side of the screen. Once you authenticate to the server, you can browse the datastore and backup your VM.
if you have the vshpere client installed. You can browse your datastore from within the program and download the VM to an external drive with the datastore manager.

This is looking good, just to confirm is this on a windows 2012 server x64 running VMware of Ubuntu Desktop 12.04.1 x64.
I tested everything on 2008 R2 x64 running Hyper-V and once that all worked i migrated everything over to real machines. the server 2008 R2 was a in use as a DHCP server/WDS/… and the fog machine was put on a T110 II server with 14 gigs of ram
This is a change from 0.31 to 0.32 you have to use 0.31 for this patch to work. It work great on a 0.31 system for me along with some other modifications we can image machines all on the remote network with very little WAN traffic.

When the shutdown or reboot starts, an on-screen message pops-up that says “Your computer is being restarted remotely by <my organisation’s IT support>. You have thirty seconds to save your work.”
lete me know your email address if you want andI can get in touch.[/quote]
