Meteohub on VMware EXSi server

Post by astrodanco » Fri Feb 15, 2013 10:45 pm

This morning I migrated my Meteohub installation from an iConnect box to a VMware ESXi virtual machine.

It took just a few minutes to accomplish and it works extremely well.

Just one more little virtual machine among several all running on the server.

Now I no longer need to worry about the silly little flash drive ever wearing out.

In fact, this is where I should have installed the Meteohub software in the first place! :roll:

For anyone thinking of running Meteohub with a Davis data logger under VMware ESXi, please note that the Linux driver for the USB to serial chip in the Davis USB based data logger is flaky and does not work well. The Davis serial data logger used with a separate FTDI based serial to USB cable works very well.
