VMware: download diagnostics

The command is: vm-support
This will generate all logs and TAR-GZ them.
To download them from iESX please use the following commands:
ssh -l root 192.168.x.x vm-support -s > vm-support-192.168.x.x.tgz
wget https://root:password@

Make sure SSH service is running, bu going to Advanced settings in VSphere and turning that service on.
The generation process can take up to even 10 minutes so be patient.
This is what HP or Dell will ask you to do if your hypervisor will start pink screening.

Arch and Debian anatomy

I would like to speak more about runlevels. Unlike in Arch Linux in Debian initscripts are located in different place.
In Arch we have /etc/rc.d/[script] In Debian /etc/init.d/[script] and symlinks to these scripts located in /etc/rc[runlevel].d/ directory respectively. Instead of just one file rc.conf in Arch in Debian we have multiple that specify parameters for various initial things located in /etc/defaults.
