Set Up Enpass With HTTPS Protected WebDAV and Ditch LastPass

Set Up Enpass With HTTPS Protected WebDAV and Ditch LastPass

It’s time to ditch cloud based password managers. There.. I said it. What we are doing when we use them is giving ownership and management of our trusted secrets to someone else, and hoping that they will be able to protect them from bad guys, and make sure they are available when we need them.

VMware Provisioning using Hashicorp Terraform

As a part of my effort to use Infrastructure as Code to define and automate VMware environments, I’m taking a look at Terraform for VMware provisioning. In this article, I will give a brief intro to Terraform, talk about how it can help in managing your enterprise environments, as well as how it’s different than Ansible. I’ll also provide example code and description for how to provision Windows and Linux VMs.

I recently encountered a situation where I needed to provision hundreds of ESXi hosts. The thing is, there was no vSphere Autodeploy, or HPE Synergy Image Streamer, and no ability to (long story, trust me here). No way I’m going to manually provision all of those hosts by hand, so what’s a guy to do?!

While I designed this solution to work with hundreds of production ESXi hosts, there’s nothing from preventing you from using this method in smaller production environments, or even your own home lab.
