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!

So… I’m running an AD on an Intel NUC, and after a recent set of updates the NUC started to sound like a hairdryer!
The ESXi Host was reporting some pretty fantastic CPU numbers (considering there’s not a lot of workloads on this yet, 3 VMs doing not a lot).
When having a look at the VM, I see most of the CPU being taken up by ‘Microsoft.Online.Reporting.Monitoring.Agent.Startup’. This is a component of Azure AD Connect, which I’m using to sync user accounts into Office 365 for my Lab.

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.
