Searchable VMware Technical Resource Documents Listing

Posted on Tuesday, December 02, 2008 | No Comments

VMware admins are always looking for quick reference to whitepapers and best practices. How do you do that?

Well there are some great sites which list links such as VMware-land. However the most popular document in VMTN (for non desktop products) is the "VMware Technical Resource Documents Listing" at http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-2590

In a single page you will find the title, abstract and link to the PDF for every VMware published technical note. There are currently 195 documents listed.

The source for the listing is the VMware technical resources document list, however this has no usable search function, hence why this alternate listing was originally created. The excellent thing about the document list page is within seconds you can quick search with your browser for any keyword. Go on give it a try, jump over and search for a keyword that interests you. You may be surprised to find a paper that you never knew existed.

In the 11 months since I created this page it has had over 10,000 hits. This is dwarfed by some of the Fusion documents, one of which is over 33,000. VMware, its probably time to improved the search facility of the technical resource list. It would be great to be able to search within the documents, until then, at least we have a usable alternative.
