I could be…

Enjoying the outdoors…

Raking leaves…

Cleaning out my garage…

But, I’m sitting in my office GEEKIN that I got both WSV and ESX running and BUILDING VMs. WSV was an easy fix. When the blades were deployed, both the AMD Processor Virtualization and XD/NX (eXecute Disable/No Execute) in the BIOS were both disable. Couple keystrokes and I’ve got a Server 2008-based hypervisor. I’m building an intial S2kOcho base image to begin laying out my test farm. Plan is to get 2 external clients, ISA 2006 DMZ, Full 08 AD/TS and play with implementing Exchange 2007 sp1 which supports 08.
For those playing with WSV, John Howard from Microsoft has a great article on does/don’t on how to get it running.
