Today I was accepted into the VMware vExpert 2019 list! I’ve been included in this due to, in part, this blog and the blog.eucse.com site, along with talks I’ve run at conferences and events this year.
The full list and more details are here. I expect to be ramping up my blogging efforts in the back half of 2019 following up to VMworld Europe. https://blogs.vmware.com/vexpert/2019/07/26/vexpert-2019-second-half-award-announcement/
So, you’ve enabled Workspace ONE for your organisation, you’re on your way to End User Nirvana. Theres just one thing in your way, the Username and Password field!
Workspace ONE is great at becoming a one stop shop for all Web, Native and Virtual Applications, leaving your users with just one password to remember. But… what if that could be a thing of the past!
On a Workspace ONE Managed Device (macOS or Windows 10), your users can simply open their Browser of Choice (except Firefox, we’ll cover that later), et voilà . Logged in without a second thought.
If you’ve upgraded to Workspace ONE UEM 18.10 and you have anybody enrolled with the AirWatch Agent, you wont fail to see the new Intelligent Hub app and Hub Services configuration.
Intelligent Hub is an overhaul of the AirWatch Agent to deliver a full Unified App Catalog features, allowing the Hub to be the one stop shop for users to access any app on any device. The app also allows Administrators to deliver notifications to end users.
If you are an end to end Workspace ONE user, integrating UEM (Unified Endpoint Management, powered by AirWatch) with VMware Identity Manager, you’ll probably want to deliver your SaaS Apps as well as Native applications.

I set up VCSA (vCenter Server Appliance) running on a vSAN datastore, then wanted to move things around. I disconnected my ESXI hosts and deleted the VCSA appliance. Proper SDDC experts are probably crying at that statement not, but you learn by doing! I then had the issue where I was unable to delete the vSAN datastore.
To resolve this, I had to run thr following:
First enable SSH on your ESXI host. SSH into it and run:
esxcli vsan cluster leave
Once this was done, I was still unable to re-claim the disks back into regular datastores. I couldn’t remove the partitions via ESXi Web Client either, so resorted back to Google.
esxcli vsan storage list
Run the command and get the VSAN UUID from one of them. If theres multiple, it doesnt matter!
esxcli vsan storage remove -u uuid
Once this has been run, you’re all good!

Providing access to applications as easy as possible is one of the primary goals of Workspace ONE. While Workspace ONE can enable Single Sign On to Office 365, I see most setups just deploying the main portal to Office 365. One massive improvement we can make is to provide users with links directly to O365 services, such as OneDrive, Outlook and Excel Online by enabling one click links into these services.
Below is a step by step guide to get each service within Office 365 presented to end users via the Workspace ONE Catalog.
