    I’m stuck in the DD command. I’m on macOS and the diskutil list command shows the USB as /dev/disk3, but I get “disk busy” if I try to dd the ISO to it. what am I doing wrong? “of=/dev/disk3” is what I am using.

    dev/disk3 (external, physical):
    0: GUID_partition_scheme *32.0 GB disk3
    1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk3s1
    2: Microsoft Basic Data U 31.8 GB disk3s2

      I’m not particularly savvy on Mac these days but I’d venture a guess that the disk is either mounted or you have an application/folder that is opened or being used from that disk. Make sure that you umount the drive or whatever the Mac equivalent may be.

      Another word of caution, I’ve seen/had issues when using flash drives larger than 8GB. If possible, I’d strongly suggest finding a smaller flash drive for the DD process.

    hi, to have a local storage with ext3 and can access direct to the VHD files, do I have to select thin provisioning or not??

    • Rob Turner says:


      To have local storage, you won’t have to thin provision. Realize though that local storage creates some serious limitations (lack of high availability and lack of VM migration capabilities).

    Why describe how to install XS70E004 ? The installation ISO’s was re-rolled to include this very critical patch.

    • Rob Turner says:


      At the time the article was being written, XS70E004 wasn’t part of the ISO. Even still showing how to install one patch, allows users to know how to install all of the other patches that will be released as well.
