Mike Laverick has just announced that he made his book available as a Free Download from Lulu. That's a great move from Mike. As after VMworld he is in early stage of writing the upcoming version which will be updated for the VMware SRM 4.0 product. VMware SRM is currently in beta.
Great possibility for everyone you guys to explore through 298 pages this amazing technology and ultimate recovery scenarios. For your information, as Mike said on his blog, you can still get a printed copy, for almost no cost (just paper and shipping.
As I have not had the chance to be present at VMworld this year, I hope to come and see Mike and all the other fellow bloggers next year… -:)
This book will teach you how to install and configure VMware’s SRM. It also covers in detail the failover and failback processes – and I will guide you step-by-step through the set up of the product.
This book is not filled with project management padding that typifies a lot of IT books. It is practical and technical, and assumes you are already pretty familiar with VMware’s Virtual Vi3 products. In this book you will learn the strengths and weaknesses of Site Recovery Manager, and I will show you the common pitfalls and errors that can happen, and also more importantly why they happen, and how to fix them.
