Inflated disk still shows "Thin" Inflated disk still shows

This is driving me a bit bonkers.
Here you can see a VM with a thin provisioned disk:
Which is confirmed by the UI as well
Now I am trying to inflate the vmdk
Once done, the disk should show "thick" ..
Still thin .. running the inflate command again "confirms" that it isn't thin any more
In addition to the error, the VMDK is still shown as thin in both, PowerCLI and the UI.
Has anyone seen this before ?
Only reference I can find is this
VMware KB: Inflating a virtual disk fails with the error: The disk is not thin-provisioned
So "You see this error if the virtual disk is not Thin Provisioned" - great, thanks.
Then I found this reference :
Virtualization & Cloud computing: Sphere client shows "wrong" disk provisioning type in VM properties after deployment from template
So the UI apparently

To take the full CCNA test or ICND1/ICND2?

I'm having to recertify my expired
, and I was told by someone to take it in two parts. He said he took the full test and failed it, but he then took the two-part test and he considered them to be much easier than the full version. Has anyone else had this experience, or does it really matter? I going to have to borrow the money to take this test(s), so I can't afford to fail it. Thanks.

Considering degrees to advance career or continue with certs

After I finish my Cisco
I've been seriously thinking about going back for my Bachelor's/Master's degree still undecided it would only take me about 2 years at most maybe a year and a half with my transfer credits for the Bachelor's longer for Master's degree these are what I'm considering from
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology—Network Administration or Security then move onto
Master of Science Information Technology—Network Management
I keep going back and forth on it would likely need to be online-based since I work full-time now but I debate do I really need it at this point of where I am in my career:
I currently have:
Associate's of Applied Sciences degree, Information Technology-Network Systems Administration
5 IT certifications (A+, Network+,

Practice Tests for ICND1

I am currently preparing for my ICND1 and am looking for some practice tests because I really want to nail it in 1 try. People here have highly recommended Exsim but i am currently on a budget. Does anyone know any other practice tests that are free or cost really less. I am looking for some practice mainly in the simulation type of questions. Also has anyone heard of this
CCENT 640-822 certification
I also have wendell odom's book and want to know if the practice exam that comes with it is enough.

Boson ExSim-Max Exam Customization Settings (70+ question exams)

So I purchased and installed The Boson ExSim-Max to try to get a feel for if I am ready for my ICND1 exam and so far am a little put off by the product. I went to try to take my first simulated exam and it seems that it is impossible to take a practice exam with Boson that is 40-50 questions with a 90 minute time limit (which is what Cisco themselves states the exam parameters are) I have been using the Pearson Practice exams and when I set a 50 question exam with a 90 minute limit in that engine I seem to usually finish with about 12-15 minutes to spare. The Boson practice exams are 71 questions and 90 minutes. Am I crazy or does it seem answering 20+ additional questions (a ~40% increase) in the same 90 minutes seems a bit excessive. Seems this would make the Boson ExamSim not very reali

Passed BCNE 150-130

Passed by the skin of my teeth haha. It was more difficult than I thought it would be. Even though I work with Brocade devices, it was still pretty difficult. I would call it
+. The only thing that makes it easy is the very low passing score.

PowerShell IDE recommendations?

I've finally decided to get a bit more serious about my PowerShell work rather than using vim for all of my editing needs. The scripts I've been working on lately have gotten pretty massive so I figure an IDE should help speed things up and make for some easier debugging as well. Does anybody have any recommendations for a good IDE? I've looked at the PowerShell ISE and just feels like it comes up a bit lacking. Perhaps I'm just spoiled by Intellij IDEA when I'm doing my Java work. I've just started looking at PowerSE as well.

Study notes and Practice tests for ITIL intermediate exams

I found a website called actual tests with practice questions on ITIL and other certification exams. In this website, I can find practice tests for ITIL foundation but not for ITIL intermediate or other higher ITIL exams other. I have completed my ITIL foundation and I am taking a training with the training provider for the intermediate exam and I also have OGC books for them. I was wondering if registering for this website would be good choice as I may be able to take practice tests before the real exam. Please let me know if there any other materials or websites which could help me studying for the exams and also some one please assist me with this.
Thank you

Passed ITIL-F Exam

Hello all,
I just passed my ITIL-F Exam (Syllabus 2011)
I bearly passed, but a pass is a pass. Personally I find the terminology very difficult for me to understand.
I used 3 different types of resources:
ITIL Foundation Exam Study Guide: Liz Gallacher, Helen Morris: 9781119942757: Amazon.com: Books
ITIL Foundation Practice Test - Free Test Prep and Review at PracticeQuiz.com - ITIL / ITSM Practice Questions
CBT Nuggets
The Syllabus 2011 is the latest version of the ITIL-F test that's currently available today right?
So the ITIL-F v3 is an older test I assume?

CCENT Labs/Lab Manual 100-101 ICND1

I see posts in the forums of people who recommend to hit the labs heavy. Where do you get labs/lab manuals from. I took a
class back in 2008 and we had really nice labs books. The best I have been able to find is lab simulator software. I already have packet tracer. Thanks for all your help.

New short term goal: acquire A+

Hey everybody,
I ordered Mike Meyer's All-In-One study guide from Amazon and it has just arrived. If I begin studying for the 801 and 802 tests this week, what's a realistic time frame to take the tests? I want to do the tests before returning to school in the fall. I've taken a computer hardware class before and have a long history with computers and peripherals. How difficult are the tests? Any tips on how I should study (besides read the book and do practice tests)?

A+ 220-801 & 220-802 - Seeking Advice on how to take exams!

Hi. I have been preparing for the A+ exams (802 & 801) for about a month now. I have working experience and knowledge on the topics but still wanted to make sure I am comfortable with the topics before taking the exams. Is it generally a good idea to sit both 801 & 802 exams together on the same day? how do most people do it? I figure with good preparation and studying, i should be able to go in and take both exams on the same day. Any thoughts on this?

GNS3 with breakout switch connected to four 3750s.

I know that we will probably see an update to the
curriculum soon, but with the current curriculum what can't be done with GNS3 and a breakout switch connected to four 3750s? I ask because at the moment I have access to these switches, but I only have one 2800 router. All my other test equipment at work is service provider equipment and things are just different enough in that equipment that I'm afraid it would cause issues.

ANYTHING for 70-689?!

I have a free voucher for taking the upgrade Windows 7 -> Windows 8 path by passing the 70-689 exam. So far I have found little to nothing on Amazon or web searches...has anyone found success in any materials or has anyone passed the exam using something that helped?? So far I've used the Windows 8 free MS e-book and the Jump Starts on Microsoft Virtual Academy but I do not think it is enough. The voucher expires next month so I figured if I brushed on exam objectives using a book or exam prep I can have a quick study session before attempting (heck it's free).
Appreciate the help in advance!

STP cost question

If 3 switches are connected together for STP using 1Gig interfaces, and according to the revised IEEE cost chart these are cost of "4"... I get the cost of one link + cost of another link = sum of both = 8. Why is the cost between SW1 and SW3 = 5 ?
This is from Page 70 in Odom's ICND2 book.
SW1 is connected to SW2 via gi0/1 (this is cost 0+4 = 4 )
SW1 is connected to SW3 via gi0/2 (why is this cost 0 + 5 = 5 ? where is 5 coming from?)
SW2 is connected to SW1 via gi0/2 (cost here is 0+4 = 4 )
SW2 is connecred to SW3 via gi0/2 (cost here is 4+4 = 8 )
SW3 is connected to SW2 via gi0/2 (cost here 4 + 4 = 8
SW3 is connected to SW1 via gi0/1 (cost here is 0+5=5?)
Is it because the root switch/bridge advertised in BPDU that it's cost is 1? then you add 4 = 5?
Since all are Gigabit, w

CCNA Virtual Lab, Titanium Edition 3.0

I read the thread "How to study for the CCENT/

I was wondering if it worth buying the

Virtual Lab, Titanium Edition 3.0 and

I was thinking the Virtual Lab is worth the extra $$$. What do you think.

Having console connection problem with one router

I have a used Cisco 1700 router I just bought from Ebay. I use TeraTerm to connect to its Console port.
I was able to connect to it earlier. But suddenly TeraTerm lost the console connection. After I restarted the router, the following message kept coming up and I was not able to connect. I checked the console cable/connection with another router and it works fine. So I'm leaning towards to the idea that something is wrong with this router. But what could it be?
PC = 0xfff17508, Vector = 0x500, SP = 0xff0027a0
*** Console framing error ***
PC = 0xfff17508, Vector = 0x500, SP = 0xff0027a0
*** Console framing error ***
PC = 0xfff17508, Vector = 0x500, SP = 0xff0027a0
