I was approached by the gentlemen over at Druva to be a guest on their monthly podcast SOCK(net). They wanted to focus on community with this episode so they asked me on to discuss my experiences with the VMware User Group (VMUG). We spend just under an hour discussing thoughts, trends, and experiences with regards to the tech community.

Community is a great way to expand your knowledge and increase your personal and professional network! User Groups are where I have focused here but they are not the only option. Forum communities, volunteer work, meet-and-greets, you name it there are plenty of other options to get involved and grow as a professional.
View Agent 6.2 Video Driver Replacement
Installing a video driver from an earlier version of the VMware View Agent is a valid option for those who would like to run the same version of the Agent as they do on their View infrastructure.
This guide assumes the following:
a. View server infrastructure has already been upgraded to 6.2
b. View Agent 6.2 has already been installed
c. VMtools has already been updated to current or newer on your golden image (or app layer)
d. ESXi version is earlier than 6.0 Update 1a (for a comprehensive interoperability list see VMware’s site here)
If you don’t already have it, go here to download the View 6.1.1 Agent. Creating an account is required to download. Ensure to download the appropriate bit version for the guest OS installed.
This guide is a modified version of an original post by Jeremy Wheeler on the VMware Consulting Blog.
