To build a routed wifi network using Raspberry Pi we will use hostapd and dnsmasq software. In this example, our home network is 126.96.36.199/24 and the new network we will use for wifi is 188.8.131.52/24. Please note that throughput on the Raspberry Pi wifi interface is limited and you should not expect speeds higher than 25-30Mbps.
Since there is no option to reset the root password with VCSA running, we need to restart the VCSA in single-user mode. To do that, restart the VCSA, and when the PhotonOS logo is displayed, press e on your keyboard to edit the boot loader. Locate the line starting with linux, and at the end of the line add the following:
If you have just upgraded VMware VCSA to v7.0.1, but cannot log in, even though the root password is correct, you have probably locked the root user out. You can of course wait or you can proceed with the unlock procedure.
To configure SSL on Webmin, you will need your Webmin server SSL certificate (pem or crt), private key (key file) and root CA or intermediate CA certificate file. Once you have these, copy your root CA certificate file to /etc/webmin/ folder:
To install a CA on a Linux server, install the following packages:
# aptitude install -y openssl ssl-cert
To start the installation, download the Raspberry Pi Imager from the official Raspberry Pi website. Insert the SD card (min. 8GB) and select Ubuntu Server 20.04 LTS from the list of the available operating systems. Once the write and verify is complete, insert the SD card in the raspberry pi, connect the HDMI, network cable, and power source.
After upgrading all of your ESXi hosts to v7.0, it is time to either upgrade or deploy a new witness appliance and introduce it to the cluster. Upgrading witness appliance is done the same way as every other ESXi host, but since that procedure can initiate a known bug where witness appliance loses embedded witness appliance license and switches to evaluation license, you might end up deploying a new appliance anyway.

After you have connected DS3231 to your Raspberry Pi, edit the /boot/config.txt file and add the following lines:
Microsoft has made a great effort to allow Linux and native Linux apps to run on Windows 10. Enabling Subsystem for Linux will allow you to run Linux OS and Linux native apps on top of Windows 10. For more technical details about access to Windows kernel to run Linux and/or Linux native apps, please consult Google.
To export a virtual machine from the VCSA you can use either VCSA client (HTML5 or Flex). Since neither of these methods is reliable enough, you can export it using PowerCLI and PowerShell interface on your PC or MAC. In this example I will use a virtual machine named v-srv01. Please note that export VM function is available only in commercial versions of ESXi server and any version of VCSA.
