I came across an issue today that related to installation of the vShield 5.1.1 management appliance with the VMWare SSO Lookup service.
If you get the folowing error:
Initialization of Admin Registration Service Provider failed.
Root Cause: Server returned ‘request expired’ less than 0 seconds after request was issued, but it shouldn’t have expired for at least 600 seconds.
Then the issue is likely to be that the server the SSO component is installed on is out of sync time-wise with the vShield manager. This was evident in my environment due to the differences between BST and UTC timezones that were set on the two servers respectively.
In the end I set the vShield managers time to UTC properly and reboot.
set clock 09:00:00 05 08 2013 (when it was 10am BST)
This allowed me to join the vShield manager to SSO successfully.
One of the highlights of the year for me was the Bray Airshow. It’s an event that even though the wind and rain just kept on coming the large crowd stayed and enjoyed the show by the incredibly skilful pilots.
Here’s a selection of the shots I’m happy to put on the blog! Incidentally this was the first time out with my 70-200mm f2.8 Nikon lens. Even with the 2x Tele the quality was superior to anything I had shot before.
As with all the photos on the site, all rights are reserved by myself however if anyone wants to use them for promotional work please get in contact as I’m more than happy to see them used given adequate credit.
Over the last 6 months we’ve been touring the various counties of Ireland and come across several Dolmens. This post is about the impressively large Dolmen just outside Carlow. The cap stone is an estimated 100 metric tons and was assembled in the region of 2500BC.
Would you be adventurous enough to stand under the cap stone?

This shot was taken with the 14-24mm f2.8 Nikkor with the Nikon D800. The fur detail is fantastic.
I’ve just received a 14-24mm f2.8 lens from Conns Cameras and took a few shots in the nearest park I could find.
This is one of the first shots with the 14-24mm f2.8 on my D800.
It’s unprocessed and simply converted to JPEG via ViewNX2.
UPDATE: It turns out that my new 14-24mm has a back focus issue that the AF fine tuning option in the camera cannot correct and will need to be sent back for repair.
I took my D800 for a spin out yesterday and visited one of Ireland’s World Heritage sites.
The sun was beating down on what is normally a wet and overcast March. I’ve posted a few shots on Flickr that really don’t do the site justice!
Time to invest in a wide-angle prime lens…
