So I was playing around with a brand new Steelhead web accelerator appliance. Curiosity made me try to virtualize the darn thing and see if I can get it to work with multiple NICS and without the fancy box. Since nothing is impossible and no one was around to stop me, I created an image of the drive and converted it to a VMware Server virtual appliance… it MUST be a *nix flavor, right? No doubt! Who the heck would ever think of Redmond when it comes to creativity?
I was right because the first thing I ran into was a kernel panic. I decided to screenshot and post it for everyone to see… it’s “slightly” different than a normal kernel panic:
There it is. I leave it to you to figure out why I liked it. To the Riverbed guys: nice touch 🙂
P.S. Don’t ask about what happened after I took care of the panicing kernel… hush!
